Dakota Johnson Ditches The Bangs For 'Cosmo'

If you've read the book version of the highly buzzed-about movie of the year 50 Shades of Grey, then you are familiar with the concept of the "inner goddess." Anastasia Steele, depicted in the film by Dakota Johnson, gets in touch with hers while on a journey of, erm, sexual awakening. Perhaps the actress is now taking a page out of Anna's book IRL— Dakota Johnson ditched the quirky bangs on the cover of Cosmopolitan Australia, debuting a super sexy new look, and she practically looks like a whole different person!

On the April cover of the magazine, Johnson dons a sexy black slip dress, a vampy wine-colored pout, and messy, grown-out locks that appear to be more blonde than usual. The loose-wave texture coupled with a subtle hair flip and the brighter shade gives her that va va voom quality that is 50 shades of seductive — and she literally doesn't look like herself. No longer is she hiding behind those hanging-in-her-eyes bangs, that's for sure.

Hollywood's new It-girl has kept her look pretty classy and tame during her appearances for promoting the film, but perhaps the ways of Christian Grey have rubbed off on her? She seems to be exploring a new, more naughty style direction and it totally suits her.
