Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan made a sexy and stylish appearance in Berlin this week as the highly anticipated adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey finally premiered. The pair famously get hot and heavy on camera in the film – and they certainly brought some heat to the German capital as they attended the 65th Berlinale International Film Festival.
Dakota, 25, stunned in an appropriately risqué Christian Dior gown that featured a plunging neckline. The slinky black dress highlighted her slender frame, and the star injected a splash of colour with a dark red lipstick.

Her handsome co-star Jamie looked dapper in a black suit, which he teamed with a blue bow tie and a matching pocket square. He was accompanied to the premiere by his wife, Amelia Warner, who looked stunning in a coral lace jumpsuit.
Dakota and Jamie – who star as Anastasia Steele and Christina Grey – were joined on the red carpet by director Sam Taylor-Johnson, 47, who looked sensational in a Stella McCartney figure-hugging white gown as she arrived with her husband, Aaron Taylor-Johnson.

Author E.L. James, whose books have sold 70 million copies worldwide, was also at the screening, proudly posing alongside the stars of the film.
Fifty Shades of Grey is set to be one of the biggest movie releases of 2015. But even Jamie was surprised by the huge crowds who had gathered in Berlin for its international premiere. "We knew how many people read the books, we were ready for this in a way. But this is mad," he said.
Dakota, meanwhile, told reporters she has no "expectations" but hopes that people enjoy the film. "This is so crazy," she said. "I'm just trying to be cool. My expectations? I don't have any. I just really hope they like the movie."

Speaking ahead of its worldwide release, Jamie recently opened up to Vogue about working so closely with Melanie Griffiths' daughter. "Dakota is very funny – and humour on a film set goes a long way," the 32-year-old Irish star said.
"But she also had the ability to be a very strong dramatic actress. She'd be telling a joke one minute and breaking your heart on-screen the next – so, she was perfect."
