Dakota Johnson Reminds Us Velvet Is Still "a Thing"

Welcome to "Who Won Fashion Today," where we award the boldest, best dressed person of the day. Winning fashion doesn't necessarily mean you're wearing the most expensive, trendiest, or prettiest dress. Rather, we reward risk-takers—those that stay true to their personal style and make us go, "Now THAT is a LEWK."

Fact: Sonia Rykiel was the first luxury store I ever set foot in. My sister, my father, and I were in Paris and we passed the Rykiel store and my sister, 13, insisted we go in. "This is THE store," she proclaimed. Boy, was she right.

There is no way to wear Sonia Rykiel and NOT win fashion, but when you're wearing a Sonia Rykiel white crushed velvet dress? WITH A MOCK TURTLENECK? AND A KEYHOLE?? Well, my friends, that's true victory.

Last night, Dakota Johnson, styled by Queen Kate Young, went on Late Night with Seth Meyers wearing this very dress from the Sonia Rykiel pre-fall collection. I did not watch the show. All I saw was a photo of Dakota with a spoon on her nose. But all I really noticed was the dress.
