See the 'Fifty Shades of Grey' lingerie line -- NSFW VIDEO

Good news for Fifty Shades of Grey fans who live in Northern Europe — author E.L. James has designed a line of sexy lingerie.

James has designed a 26-piece collection of bras, panties, stockings, corsets, and nightgowns in collaboration with Swedish clothing chain KappAhl. Priced between  €12.95 ($17.54 US) and €59.95 ($81.18 US), the unmentionables come in various shades of grey (natch), black, and red, and are adorned with lace embellishments.

What was it like for the romance novelist to try her hand at lingerie design? “It has been incredibly exciting and interesting to be involved in the process, from the production of the concept through the design to the final collection,” James says in a press release from the brand. “I have been deeply involved at all stages, and my thoughts and suggestions are clearly visible in the collection’s garments.”

While the collection is currently available at over 360 KappAhl retail locations in Sweden, it’s not sold online and there are no plans to make it available in the United States. Anyone can ogle the line thanks to a (NSFW) video of a Fifty Shades fashion show. Click on to watch.

Meet 'Fifty Shades of Grey' costume designer Mark Bridges

Filming on the movie adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey is officially underway, and an Oscar-winning costume designer is dressing (and undressing) the film’s stars.

According to IMDB, Mark Bridges — who is best known for his work on Silver Linings Playbook, The Fighter, and Captain Phillips, and won the Oscar for The Artist in 2012 — joined the cast and crew on location in Vancouver over the Thanksgiving weekend.

The first photo from the set shows Dakota Johnson (as Anastasia Steele) and Jamie Dornan (as Christian Grey) filming a scene that appears to be the couple’s first rendezvous. In the book, Anastasia is described as wearing a navy-blue jacket, blue sweater, skirt, and a pair of brown boots when she meets Christian, who is clad in a “fine gray suit, white shirt, and black tie.” While both characters are fully clothed, Bridges has undoubtedly been busy pulling together a wardrobe that will consist of lots of lingerie for our heroine and plenty of crisp white shirts and ties for the leading man.

Will the costume designer take all his cues from the book, or will he make some sartorial changes?  READ FULL STORY

Official 'Fifty Shades of Grey' sex toy line coming to U.S.

Bed-frame-and-Flogger_510x317.jpg

This was inevitable. The Fifty Shades of Grey sex toy line, officially called The Pleasure Collection, will be available in the U.S. April 8.

Gag gifts for your friends take on a whole new connotation with this line of sex toys inspired by the steamy book trilogy. Fans will be happy to learn that many of the products are named after specific passages from the book, including “signature Inner Goddess Silver Pleasure Balls, the Submit To Me First Time Bondage Kit and the Twitchy Palm Spanking Paddle,” according to the press release from Lovehoney.

For the fan that is definitely interested, but concerned the line won’t live up to whatever they pictured from the books, don’t worry.  The company “worked closely with E L James to make sure the stylish, high quality range perfectly recreates the items used by Ana and her billionaire lover Christian Grey.” Phew.

Check out the NSFW-ish black-and-white promo video for the line below: READ FULL STORY

'Fifty Shades' of fierce: Katie Couric's S&M style

Sunny, chatty Katie Couric’s signature style doesn’t exactly scream S&M, but today the TV host found a way to embrace her inner bad girl… without having to go the full Rihanna.

Dressed in a black leather shift dress from the Raoul fall/winter collection — click here for a closer look — Couric welcomed Fifty Shades of Grey author E L James to today’s show.

Clearly enjoying her walk on the wild side, Couric completed the edgy look with a red room-ready Slane cuff — a not-so-subtle nod to the restraints used by Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in the books — and black Stuart Weitzman spikes.

As a Katie publicist told me before the show started taping, the host has been enjoying the sartorial freedom that comes with her new gig; a lady can get mighty sick of wearing sensible blazers night after night.

And before striding onstage, Katie herself caught my eye and struck a playful pose in her new dress — Anastasia, eat your heart out. Maybe a pink vinyl bikini and matching cap isn’t far behind.
