Sydney Sweeney and Dakota Johnson added some sparkle to the red carpet on Monday while attending the premiere of “Madame Web” in Los Angeles. Both actresses opted for gowns covered in crystals, proving that the sparkling embellishments trend is here to stay.
Sweeney donned a strapless web-embroidered gown by Oscar de la Renta. Featuring a crescent neckline and sequined silk fringe, the actress’ custom frock was based on a design from de la Renta’s pre-fall 2023 line.

Sweeney accessorized with diamond jewels by Fred Leighton, completing her look with a pair of Jimmy Choo platform heels. The actress was styled by Molly Dickson, whose other clients include Lana Del Rey, Sadie Sink and Camila Mendes.
Johnson channeled the web theme in a custom Gucci gown dripping in crystals. The actress accentuated its plunging neckline with a diamond Messika choker. She also added on a pair of patent leather high-heeled sandals.
Johnson was styled by Kate Young, who’s also known for dressing stars like Julianne Moore, Michelle Williams and Scarlett Johansson.
Johnson has been a brand ambassador for Gucci since the mid-2010s, fronting campaigns for the Italian label’s fragrances, clothing and handbags. In 2020, the actress became an investor in and co-creative director of Maude, a sexual wellness brand.
Appearing on “The Tonight Show” late last month, Johnson discussed her latest role with host Jimmy Fallon. “It’s a superhero world from a female perspective,” she said. Johnson portrays the titular heroine alongside a star-studded cast that includes Sweeney, Emma Roberts, Adam Scott and Zosia Mamet.
Sequins, crystals and sparkling embellishments took the runways of Valentino, Balenciaga and Fendi by storm last year. Stars including Dua Lipa, Natalie Portman and Margot Robbie have brought the trend into the new year, sporting their best and brightest garments on the red carpet.
