Dakota, 24, is getting in the Anastasia spirit already! One day after ’50 Shades of Grey’ author E. L. James confirmed that Jamie Dornan would officially be playing Christian Grey, Dakota sported brown hair at a fashion event. What do you think of her new look, HollywoodLifers?
Blondes supposedly have more fun — but they could never play Anastasia Steele! Looks like Dakota Johnson switched up her locks to a darker hue at an event on Oct. 23 to get into character!
Dakota Sports New Brown Hair After Jamie Dornan Cast As Christian Grey
Dakota is excited to play Anastasia, and she’s started to embody her role already!
Dakota was photographed rocking darker hair at the 2013 CFDA & Vogue Fashion Fund Event in LA at the Chateau Marmont — instead of her signature sunny-blonde locks!
We love the change — and after all, who would Anastasia be without her brown hair? Dakota’s already got the large blue eyes, so now she totally looks the part!
Dakota Helped Choose Jamie Dornan For Christian Grey Role
Jamie couldn’t have been cast without Dakota’s support, since she helped the producers and studio pick the new Christian.
“Dakota was in constant contact with producers and the studio and was very willing to help out in any way,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “She was extremely hands on, no pun intended. Dakota had a pretty amazing read with Jamie.”
Dakota did a great job helping pick Jamie! Not only do they have intense chemistry, but his chiseled abs, wavy hair and blue-gray eyes are just like Christian’s, according to our source. Coupled with her newly brown hair and blue peepers, it’s a perfect match!
