About new projects for the future: "Oh, I'd love to play Catwoman, and I think I could be a good Snow White."
About Gucci Bloom: "With this fragrance I feel romantic, elegant and well-rested. I think this is the smell of a real woman. I apply it on my wrist. I generally was not a child who showed interest in my mother's cosmetics. She has always loved fine fragrances, but if you are looking for some aromatic association that is tied to her, then I think it's the perfume and the smell of coffee. She always drinks it."
About what she does after a day of shooting: "No, I just go to bed."
About beauty secrets: "Think very carefully before making a tattoo, and think about it if you need tons of makeup on your face - after all, purity and naturalness are much more beautiful."
About Aldous Huxley's book 'Smile of Giocanda and Other Novels': "I devoured the book in January, and I still can not stop thinking about it."

Dakota Johnson, the wildly relatable actress and face of Gucci Bloom, knows how to keep it real, especially when it comes to beauty. The gap-toothed, fringe-forward celeb shares her low-key routine, love for eyedrops and signature scent tactic in a quickfire Q&A. Take notes!
My no-frills skin care routine:
"I’m a sucker for pretty packaging, so I buy a bunch of products but end up not using any of them. I just like the way they look. I truly have the simplest routine: I wash my face in the morning and at night, then moisturize; during the day I add sunscreen. Right now I’m into Lancer products."
My minimal-makeup M.O.:
"I don’t really wear makeup if I don’t have to. When I am going out somewhere, I’ll use a little concealer, lip color, and mascara."
My bright-eye beauty hack:
"Hello, I’m Dakota, and I’m addicted to eye drops; the last time I used was 20 minutes ago. Really, I’m addicted to eye drops…. I just love the feeling of them in my eyes. It’s glorious".
My grandmother’s mascara trick:
"She [actress Tippi Hedren] was watching me put my mascara on once and told me that if you hold the mirror down low and put the mascara on while looking downward, you will get the most coverage from the base of the lashes to the tips. And of course, she’s right! She’s a fucking movie star; she’s a legend!"
My intentional perfume trail:
"I’ve always worn fragrance because I love to leave a scent behind. I love that perfume can take you back to someplace immediately. I prefer floral scents to ones that are musky. Right now I’m wearing Gucci Bloom; it’s very floral, so I love it. My mother [Melanie Griffith] has worn the same perfume my entire life, and that’s very comforting to me."
My body-confidence moment:
"For my role as Susie, a ballet dancer, in Suspiria [out later this year], I trained for about six months with the brilliant Belgian-French choreographer Damien Jalet. I actually danced until I was 16 with a company in L.A., so it was great to work that muscle again. I rehearsed six or eight hours a day leading up to the shoot, then continued with two hours of rehearsals while shooting. It was truly the most wild experience. I learned that if I work my ass off, I’m capable of doing all sorts of things with my body."
My beauty regrets:
"There are a few tattoos I wish weren’t on my body, but it happens, I guess, and admittedly, I continue to get them. I also was feeling a bit sassy this morning and cut my bangs in a whirlwind after six months of growing them out, so I hope I don’t regret that!"

While I wait in the hallway outside the hotel room where my 15-minute interview with Dakota Johnson will take place, one of her handlers kindly suggests that I not ask anything about Fifty Shades of Grey. “She’s also getting a little tired, so try to make your questions interesting and she’ll perk up.” #nopressure
I am ushered in and take a seat on a beige sectional. I smile at another handler who is seated across from me, ready to tape and time my speed-date chat with Johnson, one of three muses for the new fragrance Gucci Bloom. The 27-year-old actress is slowly pacing in the adjacent room, no doubt girding her loins for another interview.
Moments later, she walks in and quietly sits on the floor in front of me. She is barefoot and dressed in understated—at least for Gucci—black tux pants and a beige silk top. Her makeup is minimal, and her fringed and layered haircut, c/o celebrity hairstylist Mark Townsend, has me rethinking my no-bangs policy. She takes a sip of iced coffee and looks up. “You’re halfway done,” I say, trying to be encouraging. “What?” she responds, staring at another handler across the room. After being assured that her day is nearly over, she laughs and says, “Like, how far do those windows open?!”
She’s had a hectic few days, which have included walking the red carpet at the Met Gala with Gucci’s creative director, Alessandro Michele, and attending the fragrance launch party at MoMA PS1 in Queens with her fellow perfume muses, Petra Collins and Hari Nef. I begin our chat by asking her what song or book title best reflects the past 24 hours of her life.
“Oh, my God. That’s such a fucking great question,” she says, smiling. “Give me three seconds.” She reaches for her phone and starts scrolling through her music. “I don’t know. Hmm…that’s the craziest question,” she laughs and looks up. At the 1:50 minute mark, I suggest we move on. I’ve lost a minute, and there’s plenty to cover.
