Running into your boyfriend’s ex doesn’t have to be awkward—just ask Dakota Johnson.
This was the 32-year-old actress who proved it when she came across Gwyneth Paltrowat the 2021 Gucci Love Parade fashion event in Hollywood, Calif. on November 2. As a video by VarietyThey greeted one another warmly, chatting and smiling, before wrapping their arms around each others’ shoulders while they took a picture. Johnson looked stunning in a black minidress and fishnet stockings while Paltrow looked stunning in a red suit.
The suit gave fans flashbacks to the one Paltrow wore to the 1996 MTV Video Music Awards that had been designed by Tom Ford for the fashion house. According to Vogue, current creative director Alessandro Michele designed the iteration Paltrow recently wore for Gucci’s 100th anniversary show in April.
Johnson has been dating for the past four years Chris Martin, who was married to Paltrow for a decade before they announced their decision to “consciously uncouple” in 2014 and finalized their divorce in 2016. The Coldplay singer, 44, and the Oscar winner, 49, share two children together: daughter Apple, 17, and son Moses15.
