When you wear a ponytail with a glamorous gala dress (like a Saint Laurent one!), it can't be too sporty or too fussy. Just like Goldilocks would say (if she were to take over Giuliana Rancic's job), it has to be just right. And that's exactly how we felt the moment Fifty Shades of Grey breakout star Dakota Johnson made her Oscars debut.

Of course, she nailed it, since none other than the great Mark Townsend created the style using Dove hair care. Let's break down the fabulousness: Her wispy bangs skimmed her eyes in a sexy, come-hither way (because obviously) with effortlessly cool longer pieces falling out on the sides. The top was teased to give it volume and height. The actual pony was pulled back in the middle of her head, keeping it sophisticated instead of something a high school cheerleader might rock. The textured tail made it modern, since undone waves are this season's It trend. Dakota's face was equally perfect, thanks to makeup artist Kara Yoshimoto Bua for Chanel. Bold brows, a soft smudgy eye, and creamy porcelain skin flattered her features. But what made it go from casually chic to utterly elegant was a matte cherry-red lip.

We are already pinning this look to our Must Try Pinterest board. Keep reading to see more stunning photos of Dakota!
