New Interview of Dakota for ELLE Canada


Jewellery is always a good idea. 

When I'm at a loss for what to gift someone, I often Google to see what celebrities have been giving and receiving. My reasoning for this: at a certain point, outlandishly expensive gifts must be seen as a cop out (how many more times can the Kardashian-Jenners gift one another luxury cars?) so they really have to come up with something crazy obscure or meaningful. During a recent press event for Gucci Bloom I tested this theory, and asked Dakota Johnson, who is a face of the fragrance, to talk all things gifting.

Below, she shares the best gift she's ever given and why she thinks the Queen of England would wear Gucci Bloom.

WHAT ARE THE RULES FOR GIVING SOMEONE A FRAGRANCE AS A GIFT?

That’s really tricky. Either you’re giving a scent because it’s something that you’re re-gifting to somebody or you really want someone to smell a certain way.

New Interview of Dakota with La Vanguardia [Spain]


What attracted her to this remake?

Dakota: It provoked me. There are many reasons why I choose movies and in this case many components come together. I think the combination of emotions and intellect in this film can work as a trigger for many things and I liked that. I think that art has to make you feel things and although when you go out of seeing Suspiria you stay very well, you will walk away from the cinema thinking, and that is something that makes me proud.

Had she seen the original?

Dakota: I saw it when Luca Guadagnino invited me to participate in his version. We were on the set of A Bigger Splash and he asked me if I had seen Suspiria and I answered no. He proposed that I act on his version and I said yes without having seen it. But when I sat down to see it, I understood how it has influenced many of my favorite directors. Maybe it's a phase, but last year I devoted myself to making genre films, something I never imagined, much less that they were as intense as this one. I must admit that filming this film has helped me to understand horror movies from a different perspective.
