We haven’t read the much talked about novel featuring protagonists Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey (just the names make us cringe), but expect the Fifty Shades phenomenon to make its mark on this year’s Halloween celebrations as many women may look to embrace their inner seductress and femme fatale through fancy dress.
But if you don’t fancy being a modern day Mata Hari, why not mix in a bit of old school fairytale Brothers Grimm style? After all these days most costumes – even those made into loveable Disney characters – appear come in a ‘sexy’ version…
Here are some of our top choices this Halloween:
Red Riding Hood
Not your average girl, Red Riding Hood outwitted the big bad wolf. Add a dark twist with this Gothic costume. Boots and gloves not included. Available from Angels Fancy Dress for £44.99.
