Dakota Johnson takes mum as date to Oscars

DAKOTA Johnson took her mother Melanie Griffith as her date to the Oscar Awards 2015 last night.


The '50 Shades of Grey' star probably had a string of men lining up to accompany her to the glamorous event at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday, but she won over hearts when she turned up on the red carpet with her famous mum on her arm. 

Speaking to E! host Ryan Seacrest prior to the ceremony, she explained: "My mum is here with me as my date."

The 25-year-old actress oozed confidence as she walked into the venue in a striking red dress, which clung to her killer curves and exposed her petite shoulders with a crystal-embellished strap.

The brunette beauty kept her look fairly simple with a casual high ponytail, natural make-up and a small black clutch bag. 

While Melanie, 57 - who was nominated for an Academy Award for her movie 'Working Girl' in 1988 - looked effortlessly stunning in an all-black gown.
