The newly brunette actress left her poufy princess gowns and pretty in pink ensembles behind and decided to try for pure drama and glamour at the first red carpet premiere of “Breaking Dawn – Part 2,” which was held on Monday.

Dakota, who plays sadistic, torture-loving Volturi vampire Jane, was anything but scary in a stunning teal Elie Saab gown that looked amazing with her newly-dyed dark brown locks.

The dress, which featured an embroidered lace panel with sparkly embellishments on the hip, was accessorized with a black and gold Ferragamo clutch, and assortment of rings, and heels by Charlotte Olympia.

As for her hair and makeup, Dakota predictably left her usually straight locks cascading down around her shoulders, but opted for a surprising pop of color via a bright pink lip and a bit of extra black eyeliner.
