The daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith is the new face of our denim line
Dakota Johnson is working with us as the face of the brand’s Spring/Summer ‘09 jeans line. The beautiful 19-year-old, daughter of the famous actors Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, posed for the fashion shoot for our new catalogue with Spanish photographer Txema Yeste. The model had a relaxed air and sported a rock chick look
Dakota Johnson was born in Texas in 1989 and grew up in San Francisco. She launched her modelling career last year, represented by the prestigious international modelling agency IMG. The young model, who at the tender age of 19 has already been a Vogue cover girl, showed her excitement about the collaboration with MANGO during the fashion show we held to launch our Spring/Summer ’09 collection last November in Barcelona. She said, “It’s an honour to work with MANGO. I think the collection is great. It is very chic and elegant, while at the same time cool and casual.”
On the 20th November, Dakota confirmed that she is a fan of the brand, attending the huge opening party held in MANGO’s flagship store in New York’s trendy SoHo district.
Dakota says she is a close follower of her mother, Melanie Griffith, who is her role model in the way she dresses, and she is also an admirer of great actresses such as Audrey Hepburn, who she feels is a fashion icon. The young woman, who already has some work as an actress under her belt, is studying acting in the USA and does not rule out the idea of creating her own fashion line in the future.
Last season London-based model Alice Dellal was the face of the MNG jeans line. Dellal is one of the It girls of the moment in London.
