007 Skyfall Premiere: The Fashion Mishaps And Roll Call
They managed to bag invites to one of the biggest movie premieres of the year, so they were of course hoping to shake and stir the crowds on Tuesday night.
But while they certainly made an impact, Tamara Ecclestone, Katie Price and even adventurer Bear Grylls landed themselves looks for the wrong reasons at the Skyfall premiere.
They all turned out to see the return of James Bond to the big screen as the likes of 007 himself Daniel Craig showed up to the premiere at London’s Royal Albert Hall.
Not quite like Angelina! Tamara Ecclestone dressed to impress at the Skyfall premiere in London on Tuesday night but stood out in her emerald frock with side split
But Tamara in particular stood out due to her usual sense of style failing her.
The Formula 1 heiress had good intentions as she stepped on to the red carpet, ditching her usual minuscule dresses for a longer number.
Although she stood out thanks to the vibrant emerald green colour of the frock.
Always lowering the tone: Katie Price covered up more than usual in a mini-dress with a long black train but cheapened it with her over-the-knee boots and backless cut out
And while she looked glamorous, Tamara was clearly trying to give off a similar effect to that of Angelina Jolie at this year’s Oscars.
She wore the Jolie-esque side-split dress with pride but failed to give off the same impression that model like Angelina did with a similar cut earlier this year.
Although she had clearly made an effort and nonetheless enjoyed the evening, writing on Twitter afterwards: ‘Absolutely loved Skyfall great movie.’
Katie Price had also dressed up to the nines in a black mini-dress with a floorlength black train but still managed to lower the tone with its shiny material and her over-the-knee boots cheapening the look.
She even showed off her bare back with the cut-out detailing.
But it wasn’t only the girls who went for an obscure get-up as TV adventurer Bear Grylls decided to even be adventurous with his clothing choices on the night.
He hit a bum note standing out in a pair of Union Jack trousers.
Clearly wanting to be patriotic for the British franchise, he wrote on Twitter ahead of his outing: ‘Do I go for the union jack trousers or not for Bond premiere!? Hhmm.’
So luckily it was down to the Bond Girls to raise the glamour stakes on the night.
Both Naomie Harris and Berenice Marlohe showed off their credentials off screen in their striking gowns and revealed how it should be done properly.
The actresses were just two of the star guests who showed up to the Royal Premiere of Skyfall in London on Tuesday night alongside the man himself, Daniel Craig.
Bond belles of the ball: Bond Girls Naomie Harris and Berenice Marlohe ensured they stood out at the Skyfall premiere in London on Tuesday night in striking gowns
And it’s no wonder so many A-list guests showed up to the premiere as critics are already hailing it one of the best Bond movies yet.
Naomie stood out as she showed off her perfect physique in a sheer black Marios Schwab gown with a daring blue sequinned body underneath.
She almost floated on to the red carpet in the see through frock as she completed her look with glowing straight hair and dark nail polish.
But not to be outdone, Berenice also ensured she was another belle of the ball in a striking strapless red dress which emphasised her cleavage.
And they were in good company as Daniel Craig was also one of the first big names to grace the star-studded carpet.
Looking as dapper as ever, Craig lived up to his James Bond name in a perfectly suave dinner suit with white shirt and bow tie.
Javier Bardem also showed off his dapper outfit as he showed up to celebrate the release of the Bond movie, in which he plays baddie Raoul Silva, who is touted as one of the scariest Bond villains ever.
And he opted to be the first man to wear Gucci’s Green Carpet Challenge.
Leading lady: Dame Judi Dench went for a white frock as she showed up to her umpteenth Bond premiere
The likes of Kelly Brook also showed up, who also went for some shimmer in a low cut figure accentuating silver sequinned gown.
Newly married Holly Valance was also on the guest list, standing out in a red frock.
For his eyes only: Daniel Craig looked ecstatic to see Rachel after greeting the crowd and having his fair share of photographs taken
Stunning: Kelly Brook vamped up the glamour in a shimmering gown which accentuated her cleavage, while Tess Daly showed of her svelte frame in an optical illusion monochrome dress
Meanwhile, Daniel recently spoke out about his role, admitting his ‘vanity kicked in’ when he realised he had to strip for ‘Skyfall’.
The muscle-bound actor reprises his role as super spy James Bond for the film and he worked out up to seven hours a day for the movie, because he wanted to look good on screen.
In the red: Minnie Driver and Tamara Beckwith also opted for red for the grand occasion, with Minnie wearing a satin dress and Tamara going for trousers
He told TV show ‘Lorraine’: ‘There’s stuff in the script that says I have to take my shirt off so vanity kicks in and I work out.
‘But also I’m running most of the time during this film – he doesn’t really just walk into a room and sit down, he tends to jump through the window and sit down, so I had to stay in shape.’
The 44-year-old actor’s co-star Naomie Harris previously revealed she enjoyed filming the scenes with him when he had to take off his clothes.
The Bond girl said: ‘I do get to have a lovely moment with him, where I try to seduce him. He’s a very hot guy, definitely. He worked out for two hours every day after filming.
Stepping aside: Skyfall star Tonia Sotiropoulou joined former Bond Girls Shirley Eaton and Eunice Gayson, who were on the coveted guest list but made less of an impact than the current leading ladies
‘He’s a Bond in real life – very physical, capable and energetic.’
Daniel also said he is now extremely comfortable in his role as 007 now he is on his third film as the iconic character.
He explained: ‘I think it’s about time, really, isn’t it that I should start feeling comfortable? I enjoyed this a great deal and like I said about the script, when you’ve got something as strong as that, and when you know the story is that good, you feel good about it. I always wanted to start bringing in the older elements of the films.’
