Dakota Johnson: “Jackie 1961"

Actress Dakota Johnson ("Madame Web") poses for the Gucci “Jackie 1961" bag campaign photographed by Glen Luchford, "... taking us on an exploration of modern femininity and timeless style – as only Gucci can offer:

"I do not like stupid rules",
said Johnson. "Like rules for rules' sake. Or people implementing rules because they're seeking power.

"To go out into the world, do hair and make-up and wear an outfit to look a certain way, it's super jarring. So to wear clothes in which I feel like myself is vital. I feel like OK this is a version of me.

"I don't know if you've ever had this where you meet another woman and see parts of yourself in them...

"...that you didn't know you had before you'd met. It's almost like they turn up the dial on your life. For so long, I've acted in movies and, when it comes out, sometimes it's completely different. And that's really hard to grapple with as a person who is vulnerable for a living..."

Johnson plays “Madame Web” in the upcoming Sony Pictures/Marvel Studios feature, based on the clairvoyant and precognitive Marvel Comics character appearing in “Spider-Man” comic books.

‘Cassandra Webb’, born in Salem, Oregon is a telepathic, clairvoyant and precognitive mutant, who works as a professional medium.
