Elle Delivers Dull 50 Shades Cover

The teased article photos for Elle‘s March issue Dakota Johnson cover interview look a little off. Rather than screaming, as they should, “sexy!”, they give off more of a “weird!” vibe.

The cover shot, with faint echos of That Girl Marlo Thomas, is fine. Boring, but fine. However, the other pictures previewed seem poorly lit and wrongly wardrobe-styled. In one of the photos, there is even a background glimpse of a lion statue. This king of the jungle, dare we say it, looks appropriately bored.

The Elle March issue isn’t due out on newsstands until February 18. The movie itself, 50 Shades of Grey, won’t be in theaters for another year.

Are we wrong? What do you think of the photos?
