On the cover which was shot by Emma Summerton, Dakota is wearing GUCCI FALL 2018. In the issue, she talks emotions, acting, her famous family and so much more. Continue below to read some excerpts from her interview. For more on her feature, visit and pick up a copy on newsstand on September 24th. 

On her LA home:
It’s a beautiful home. I’m so lucky to live in a house like this, it’s like a treehouse/boathouse. It’s really special – I always feel it’s too nice for me.” Her home is by mid-century modern architect Carl Maston, and was completed in 1947. The interior’s been updated, but other than that the skeleton and the structure is the same. I love being here. It does inspire me. I have an office in my house. It’s the first time I’ve ever had a real workspace, with everything I love to do, all of my paints, charcoal and things and my books; there are loads of bookshelves. It’s a beautiful place to be. It’s really green and there are lots of birds and I feel like Snow White. It’s nice to have a home base. I don’t spend a lot of time here – I’m always traveling – but it’s nice to know there is a place I can always go. I don’t know if I will ever sell it, even if it becomes a complete office space. It’s such a special little house.

On her film 'Suspiria:
It’s kind of twisted. The film is very, very intricate. And there is a lot to absorb. It’s about a young woman who travels to Berlin to study at this prestigious dance company and it’s post-war Germany and it’s a very volatile time, a time when women were very expressive and angry and they were not afraid to show it. Then you realise that something is not right at the dance academy and it seems to be run by witches. It is sort of this young woman’s journey, discovering who she is and it’s really powerful and shocking. It was a shocking experience, a beautiful experience, and it was like a lot of work and a lot of learning and a lot of focus and diligence – but it was just so much fun. 

On the directors that she would like to work with:
I would love to work with Wes Anderson; I would love to work with Tarantino. Oh my gosh, there are so many. David Lynch, Tim Burton would be pretty cool, the Coen brothers, but then there are people who are no longer making films, like Truffaut …

On working with Gucci & Alessandro Michele:
Well, I am the face of the fragrance [Gucci Bloom], so yeah! It’s great to work with such a creative brand. It’s such a beautiful thing to see. It’s really great when someone comes in with a totally different vision and it’s accepted and encouraged and supported. And I love his journey.
