The actress was seen wearing a pretty patterned frock and white loafers while strolling through Manhattan with Welsh musician Matthew Hitt on Wednesday (23 July).
A very different look to the one we'll see on Ana!
We'll get the first proper look at Dakota's character, Ana Steele, when the Fifty Shades trailer is released later today.
She plays a graduate who forms a relationship with the mysterious billionaire businessman Christian Grey, who has rather racy interests when it comes to the bedroom…
Christian is played by gorgeous Northern Irish actor Jamie Dornan. (Lucky Dakota!)
Fifty Shades of Grey is based on the first book in the E.L. James erotic trilogy, documenting the intense and passionate relationship between Ana and Christian. The other books in the series are Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed.
The movie hits cinemas next February - just in time for Valentine's Day!
Alongside Dakota and Jamie, we'll see popstar Rita Ora on the big screen, playing Christian's sister Mia. It's also been rumoured that Beyonce is providing the soundtrack as she Instagrammed the teaser for the trailer last week, which featured a slowed down version of her smash hit 'Crazy In Love'.
