Bond Girl Inspiration

Today I have put together a little look book inspired by the latest Bond film Skyfall. There are only two reasons for watching James Bond films - one is to gaze at Daniel Craig and the other is to look at the pretty dresses worn by the beautiful females. (And secretly, I quite like the action-y bits too!)

I saw Skyfall back in November when it was released (you can pick up the dvd on 18th Nov in the UK) and really enjoyed it especially finding inspiration in the hair, makeup and wardrobe department. So I've put together my top picks to get the classic Bond Girl look.

When you think of Bond Girls you imagine tight red dresses, sheer material and low cut necklines. I explored a few high street online retailers and found Topshop and Miss Selfridge came out top for their Bond Girl dresses and shoes. These would make the perfect outfit for a glamorous night out.
So inspirational have the 007 films been that even OPI had to release a special collection for the release of the Skyfall movie and the 50th anniversary of James Bond. There are 12 shades in all, each named after a Bond film. My favourites include 'The Living Daylights' a super chunky glitter with gold, orange and silver sparkles. 'Skyfall' a deep rich maroon that new Bond Girl Bérénice Marlohe actually wore in the film and 'The World Is Not Enough' which is a gorgeous gunmetal multi-tonal shade. 

Are you a fan of the Bond films? Or do you just watch them for the fashion!?

  7. Every bond movie has featured beautiful women to set male pulses racing. In all those movies James has a relationship with at least one of the women.
