Ian Somerhalder is still one of the top contenders that fans want to see play S&M-driven CEO Christian Grey. But what about Anastasia Steele? So far fans have said they would love to see Alexis Bledel or Emilia Clarke.

Alexis and Emilia may have some more competition, though, because apparently model Poppy Delevingne has been talked about as being perfect for the role.

Mstars previously reported:

“While gorgeous British model and socialite Poppy Delevingne doesn't necessarily fit the part look-wise (with her mile-long legs and uber blonde hair) she definitely has the mysteriously sexy and tease-worthy persona down! Just check out the Delevingne's recent BDSM-inspired ad for Agent Provocateur entitled "Valentine's Night" - it'll keep several "Fifty Shades" fans begging for more!

One of England's beautiful "It" girls, Delevingne was first spotted by Storm Model Management founder Sarah Doukas, and she eventually went on to model for several prestigious brands and designers including Shiatzy Chen, Laura Ashley, Anya Hindmarch, Paige Adams, Mango, Alberta Ferretti, Burberry, Julien Macdonald, Marc Jacobs, and Louis Vuitton. Delevingne is a Young Ambassador for the British Fashion Council and a Chanel brand ambassador who is a prominent figure in the London social scene.

Poppy doesn’t have much acting experience but sources say she is ready to start acting more.

Do you think Poppy has what it takes to play Anastasia Steele?
