Tonight, she's walking the red carpet in a custom red Yves Saint Laurent gown, but the 2015 Oscars aren't Dakota Johnson's first rodeo. As Melanie Griffith's daughter, the Fifty Shades of Grey star has taken many a turn on the red carpet. In fact, both E! and ABC were able to dig up some footage of Dakota at the 2000 Oscars, when Joan Rivers interviewed her about her outfit. 

Dakota actually had no memory of the occasion. When prodded about her outfit, ABC's red carpet correspondent had to give her a massive hint about its color. "Take a guess: What would the title of your movie be?" he asked. "Gray," a less-than-enthused Dakota said. We do feel for her; who wants to watch footage of yourself from a decade ago when you're all done up as an adult in the midst of a major career moment?

Back then, Johnson wore an outfit from a designer called Dottie Doolittle (so she told Joan Rivers), but "I've graduated to Saint Laurent," she told ABC tonight. She also added a few "Oh, Jesuses" as she was forced to watch herself as a youngster. 

No one said fame came without a price, Dakota Johnson.
