Dakota Johnson, Vanity Fair

Vanity Fair

Another magazine, another opportunity for Dakota Johnson to make love to the camera.

After getting seductive on the cover of Elle, the Fifty Shades of Grey star posed in an adorable—wait for it—gray (but only one shade) strapless dress for the Vanities opener for Vanity Fair. The brunette bombshell, who will be featured in the March 2014 issue of the magazine, gives a prim and proper look for the shoot, hinting that she's channeling her inner Anastasia Steele, pre-Christian Grey.

Speaking of, Johnson admitted that Steele (prior to being introduced to S&M) is "kinda boring."

"A lot of getting into the character's head, in Ana's headspace before she meets Christian, so it's a lot of reading, which I love," Johnson told the mag on preparing for the anticipated film. "She's an English major, so that's kinda boring."

Regardless, Dakota says shooting the film with Jamie Dornan and the rest of the cast and crew has been very positive. "It's been a very smooth and fun and creative experience. I think going into something like this, you kind of have fears of what it could be like and none of those fears are happening. We all get along really well and the crew's amazing. We're just all trying to make this project the best it can be."

And fans are excitedly counting down the days until E L James' erotica adaptation hits the big screen (Feb. 13, 2015, in case you forgot). Johnson joked about the fan base, saying, "I wonder if it will be, like, 40-year-old moms, which I am cool with. I love moms."

Moms are pretty awesome.
