Dakota Johnson Kept a Flogger from the 'Fifty Shades of Grey' Set

Not something we expected to hear on the Oscars red carpet.

While hitting the Oscars red carpet tonight, Dakota Johnson admitted she hasn't quite let go of Anastasia Steele—the actress told Ryan Seacrest that she kept a flogger from the Fifty Shades of Grey set. 

But then it got even more fun. Kelly Osbourne wondered aloud what a flogger is (oh right, Kelly), and Giuliana Rancic decided to define it live on air.

"An implement usually used in BDSM, it is made up of a handle and several straps which are attached to it. Can be used to whip or to caress," she read from her phone. 

We bet that's the first time "BDSM" has ever been uttered on the Oscars red carpet...
