Fifty Shades Darker Movie Fashion: Ana’s Masquerade Ball Look

When it came to finding a co-creator for Anastasia Steel’s (Dakota Johnson) masquerade ball dress in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie sequel, Fifty Shades Darker, Costume Designer Shay Cunliffe turned to the queen of ethereal elegance and the goddess of romantic bridal gowns, Monique Lhuillier.

Fifty Shades Darker Movie: All of Ana’s Lipstick Colors FOUND!

The bad news? I am not able to tell you the shade of lipstick Ana (Dakota Johnson) used to trace Christian’s (Jamie Dornan) pecs in that ridiculous scene in Fifty Shades Darker (“I can’t remember that one as I didn’t provide the lipstick, the props department did,” on set Makeup Artist Evelyn Noraz explained).

April 27, 2016   Stef   A Bigger Splash, Fifty Shades Darker, Fifty Shades Freed, Interviews Comments Off on Dakota covers the May 2016 issue of Interview

It seems most improbable in this day and age that the daughter of two of the most charismatic stars of their generation—and the star herself in one of the highest grossing R-rated films of all time—should be a mystery to us. But such is the elusive figure cut by Dakota Johnson that she manages to somehow remain unshredded and undissected by the tabloids and social media.

It’s not as if Dakota’s parents, Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, are such white-hot supernovas that she gets lost in the glare of their fame, but nor has she been raised in anonymity: Dakota was Miss Golden Globe in 2006 (one hell of a debutante party for the then 16-year-old), and two of her closest friends are descended from rock-star royalty. Her casting as Anastasia Steele, too, in 2015’s Fifty Shades of Grey—after perhaps the most celebrated and scrutinized casting call in the past ten years—should have made her an overnight celebrity, or at least the regular fodder for gossip columns. But, not so much.

What we do know for sure is the work, including her terrific turn as a Boston gangster moll to Johnny Depp’s Whitey Bulger in last year’s Black Mass. In Luca Guadagnino’s sun-soaked A Bigger Splash, out this month, Johnson plays a Lolita-ish foil to an ailing rock-star goddess played by actual goddess Tilda Swinton. It’s a sensational performance in a sensational movie about allure and attraction among a group of lost souls. It probably doesn’t bring us any closer to figuring out Johnson herself—but it may have helped her to do so. As the actress tells real-life rock star Chrissie Hynde, playing a character in dire existential distress helped her sort out a little of her own. But just a little.

“Fifty Shades Darker” and “Fifty Shades Freed,” the sequels to E L James’ worldwide bestseller “Fifty Shades of Grey,” will shoot back to-back next year with James Foley directing both, TheWrap has learned.

Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson return as lovers Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, while Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti return to produce alongside James.

Universal Pictures will release the “Fifty Shades” sequels, both of which will be adapted by Niall Leonard, the author and screenwriter who’s intimately familiar with the characters, given that he’s married to James.

The “Fifty Shades” book series blossomed into a global phenomenon, and the first film in the franchise managed to heat up theaters in February, grossing more than $560 million worldwide.

“”Fifty Shades Darker is scheduled for release on Feb. 10, 2017 and “Fifty Shades Freed” will be released on Feb. 9, 2018. The release pattern effectively establishes the month of February as a new tentpole corridor for Universal, which has timed the series to the romantic Valentine’s Day holiday.

Both sequels are currently slated to open against animated movies from Warner Bros., which will surely appeal to a different demographic than the adult-friendly “Fifty Shades” series.

Foley directed “Glengarry Glen Ross” and the steamy Mark Wahlberg-Reese Witherspoon thriller “Fear” before going on to direct many episodes of Brunetti’s acclaimed Netflix series “House of Cards.” He’s represented by UTA, Brillstein Entertainment Partners and the law firm of Jackoway Tyerman Wertheimer Austen Mandelbaum Morris & Klein.
