Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson’s daughter Dakota has been getting all the attention in her family thanks to her Fifty Shades Of Grey franchise.

But there’s another stunner in the family that is turning heads – Stella Banderas, who is the 20-year-old offspring of Melanie and ex Antonio Banderas.

The blonde beauty stood out beside Dakota on Monday during the Gucci Cruise 2018 fashion show at Palazzo Pitti in Florence, Italy. That same day the LA resident shared a bikini photo on Instagram.

Join the Gucci gang in a dress like Dakota’s

Dakota Johnson joined her sisters for Gucci’s head turning fashion show wearing the beloved Italian label from head to toe…but she ensured all eyes were on her in this plunging floral print dress.

The actress has been a muse for Gucci’s creative director, Alessandro Michele so which is why she was able to get her hands on a creation from the brand’s forthcoming Fall 2017 collection.

It may be a full length dress but there’s nothing demure or frumpy about it. The plunging neckline is the perfect foil to the ditsy blooms and we love the polka dot waist belt that cinches her waist. Swoon!

It won’t be available for a while so until it is why not click (right) to shop Gucci’s current season? Or you can find similar long sleeve maxis in our edit below. From Express to Self Portrait we’ve got all budgets covered.

The young beauty showed off her legs at the Gucci event in a cream and black minidress that had bows up the front.

Six inch platform wedges with red and black straps and a snake on the heel looked so Teen Vogue.

And the stunner had her long blonde locks parted in the middle and worn stick straight, Gwyneth Paltrow style.

Stella was the love child of Melanie and Antonio, who met and fell in love on the set of the comedy Two Much, and later married in 1996.

The couple divorced in 2015 and it appears Stella lived with her mother in LA as her dad spent time in both LA and parts of Europe. 

It is not known if Stella wants to go into acting like her mother Melanie (Working Girl) or her grandmother Tippie Hedren (The Birds), but she has already appeared in Crazy In Alabama with her mom in 1999 and did an episode of Celebrity Page in 2015.

Meanwhile, at the Gucci event her sibling Dakota, 27, put on a racy display in her outfit. 

The plunging black maxi showcased her enviable curves perfectly, and featured an array of pretty pink rose patterns. 

Teaming it with pink embellished slip-ons, she wore her hair in a half top knot and accessorised with reflective sunglasses as she sat FROW with her siblings.

Dakota and Stella share the same mother, actress Melanie Griffith, while Dakota and Grace have father Don Johnson in common.  

The trio put on a glamorous display as they posed alongside Salma Hayek, whose husband François-Henri Pinault is chairman of Groupe Artémis, which owns an array of designers including Gucci, YSL and Balenciaga.

Dakota’s next project is a remake of Dario Argento’s horror classic Suspiria, originally shot in 1977.

‘It feels like we’re not making this for anyone but ourselves, which is how I would like to feel all the time when I make films,’ she said of the film in the February edition of Vogue.

‘I know that’s not going to happen, but the thing about Fifty Shades is that even if it’s commercial and mainstream, the subject matter isn’t. In that way I can do something mass but stay true to my weird interests.’

In the revival, the rising star plays the innocent American ballerina Susie Bannion alongside actresses Chloë Grace Moretz and Mia Goth, who all play students at a mysterious dance academy.

Tilda Swinton – who’s collaborated with the film’s director Luca Guadagnino several times before – takes on the role of Madame Blanc, the school’s stern headmistress.

Suspiria wrapped up principal shooting in Berlin in March and is set for a late 2017 release.
