Does Dakota Johnson Capture Ana Steele’s ‘Inner Goddess’ In ’50 Shades’ Snaps? [Poll]

The actress appeared in a spread for Elle magazine kitted out like the popular romance novel character.

Anticipation is the name of the game when it comes the antics depicted in “Fifty Shades Of Grey” — as well the rollout of the 2015 film.

We may be one year out from the film gracing theaters, but this week we saw snaps of actress Dakota Johnson kitted out in full Anastasia Steele regalia, the reveal of which begs the question: What do fans think?

Johnson graces the cover of the March issue of Elle magazine, kneeling bedside in modest green dress and less-than-modest thigh highs and red heels.

Elle also revealed a few more snaps from her spread before the magazine hits stands later this month, including the actress pulling up her stockings while sporting a long coat, kneeling in a black bandeau top and reclining by a window in a white bra and jacket.

“I don’t have any problem doing anything,” the actress told Elle with regard to some of the more explicit aspects of the book and film. “The secret is I have no shame.”

So what do you think now that you’ve seen Johnson in character? She certainly seems to be channeling Ana’s “inner goddess” in these snaps, the freer side of a shy woman previously unaware of her own sexuality.

I wonder what looks she’ll don as she treads deeper and deeper into a B&D relationship with the handsome, rich Christian Grey (played by Jamie Dornan)?

All will be revealed come February 13, 2015, but in the meantime, tell us what you think of Johnson’s look in the poll below.
