Pati Dubroff on Natalie Portman and Dakota Johnson
Number of V.F. Hollywood covers: My first was in 2002, and this makes it my fifth time! Secret makeup weapon: For both ladies, I prepped the skin with Bio Cellulose Facial Treatment Masks by 111 Skin and also used my handy facial-massage tools.
Secret weapon in general: Laura Mercier Candleglow Concealer and Highlighter pens for luminous brightness around eye area.
Favorite features on the stars: [For] Natalie, who is fiercely intelligent and politically aware, I love to enhance her golden-brown eyes with a tiny flick of liner on outer corners. Playing with bronze and golden tones can really bring out the gold in her eyes. Dakota is this delicious combination of sweet and badass, and it’s all about her lips—giving them subtle definition with a shade close to her natural lip tone.
Mark Townsend on Dakota Johnson
Number of V.F. Hollywood covers: I’ve assisted on many of the Hollywood covers in the late 90s, but this is my first Hollywood cover on my own.
Secret hair weapon: It’s no secret—I can’t go a day without Dove Dry Shampoo, for volume. It’s the only product I used on her hair for the cover shoot!
Secret weapon in general: I am able to achieve such great texture and movement in the hair with R Sessions Pro Tools Tidal Waver. It’s a double-barreled iron that creates loose bends in the hair.
Favorite features on the star: Every day I work with Dakota Johnson is my favorite day!
Daughter of actors Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, granddaughter of the chillest, most unattainable Hitchcock blonde of them all, Tippi Hedren, Dakota Johnson has pasted her own star into this Hollywood constellation. Early twinkles in Crazy in Alabama and The Social Network were the prelude to her breakout casting as the demure literary ingénue Anastasia Steele (yowza) in the screen adaptation of E. L. James’s Fifty Shades of Grey, the fiction sensation that got women worldwide thrumming.
Following Fifty Shades of Grey is the forthcoming Fifty Shades Darker, and, if civilization prevails, Fifty Shades: The Wrath of Khan. It is outside the pallor and dolor of Fifty Shades that Johnson gets to strut a fuller stride, as Rebel Wilson’s avid sidekick in How to Be Single and as the sun-streaked temptress in Luca Guadagnino’s A Bigger Splash. For her next daredevil mission, Johnson will be en pointe in Guadagnino’s remake of the horror cult classic Suspiria, as a ballerina who joins a mysterioso dance academy presided over by her sub-lunar co-star from A Bigger Splash, Tilda Swinton—it doesn’t get more ooga-booga than that.
