‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Inspired Underwear: Monica Cruz Acts in Ad (Video)
Today, "Fifty Shades of Grey" fans come a lot closer to merging their whispered fantasies with reality. Agent Provocateur, a "Fifty Shades"-inspired lingerie company has just begun selling its new lines.
Mónica Cruz, actress Penelope Cruz's younger look-a-like sister, has already stripped down to her underwear as the new face of the luxury lingerie brand. And big surprise, the new video for the campaign has a definite Dickensian "Fifty Shades of Grey" feel.
In the commercial, entitled "Wilhelmina: Show Your True Self," Mónica plays a Victorian woman whose true spirit is unmasked by a magical camera. A grizzled British actor looks through the lens as the upper class lady's "true self" is revealed.

According to Agent Provocateur in "'Wilhelmina: Show Your True Self' Mónica Cruz is the star of our glamorous, dark and mysterious Autumn Winter 2012 campaign. Set in Victorian London, the campaign tells the story of an enigmatic woman whose true Agent Provocateur spirit is revealed by a magical camera. Her inner sensuality is unveiled, and she mesmerizes and bewitches. The Autumn Winter collection returns to a rich, dark colour palette that is far from morbid and gothic. An intense femininity is created with figure-defining styles and by layering lace with ruffles."
Agent Provocateur's creative director, Sarah Shotton, told WWD: "She's a professional dancer, a very sexy woman. I've never seen a woman move like that...Mónica is a beautiful embodiment of the Agent Provocateur brand, knowingly sexy and empowered by her own sensuality."
E.L. James and her agent Val Hoskins recently chose UK-based Caroline Mickler Ltd. to be the global licensing agent for merchandise based on the sexually explicit trilogy. So keep an eye peeled for other lines inspired by the book, including sportswear, fragrance, and perhaps even beauty products, bedding, stationery, jewelry, and adult toys.
We're guessing this won't be the last we're hearing of "Fifty Shades of Grey"-inspired products. After all, everyone loves a little kink in their stocking.
