The timing of this couldn’t have been better!
ICYMI, at the end of January, French figure skaters Vanessa James and Morgan Cipres got a little seXXXy for the ISU European Figure Skating Championships as they let the movie 50 Shades Of Grey inspire their routine. No joke!
While it may’ve seemed like a risqu├â┬⌐ and/or ridiculous decision, the twosome knocked it out of the park when it came to their performance. The pair skated to The Weeknd‘s theme song from the flick, named Earned It. Oh, and Miz James even rocked a bondage-esque dress for the number.
Still, the duo didn’t go over board as they kept their choreography and costumes modest enough to appease the judges. Smart, smart!
We can only imagine the executives over at Universal Pictures are thrilled about this bit of PR since the film’s sequel 50 Shades Darker drops on Friday. Although, Vanessa and Morgan may have better chemistry on the ice than Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan ever had on screen… just sayin’!
Sadly, James and Cipres only took home the bronze medal, but they won the gold in our heads for their creativity! Be sure to ch-ch-check out the phenomenal routine for yourself (above)!
