Dakota Johnson really, really loves her leopard print coat.

The feisty piece has been a fixture in her closet for years and it’s no wonder why.  Rising just above mid thigh and richly colored, it’s versatile enough to go from airport to red carpet premiere and back again. As far back as March 2015 it was her go-to while transiting through JFK. Paired with snazzy matching cat eye shades, the only thing breaking up the strictly feline themed ensemble was Dakota’s adorable pooch, Zeppelin!

The same coat made a higher profile appearance a year later at the London screening of A Bigger Splash. On this more formal occasion, Dakota wore the piece as a frock over denim skinnies. All buttoned up, she radiated charm in the wild yet sophisticated look.

It seems time really does make the heart grow fonder. Dakota’s been trotting out her favorite coat more and more frequently. On a recent trip to LAX she used it to tie together a pair of Gucci’s Peyton boots, Saint Laurent sunglasses, and her Chanel bag.

The satin lined item also played a major role in her May Day uniform on the first of this month. This time, flared denim cut offs and funky metallic sunnies rounded out her on-the-go outfit. Where will the next Dakota spotting take place? No matter what, it’s safe to say we’ll be seeing more of these particular spots soon. — jas
