There was a beauty licence to thrill last night on the red carpet for the new James Bond Skyfall premiere at The Royal Albert Hall. With the Bond crew out in force, it was a dressy affair with plenty of James Bond uniform attire from the mandatory thigh splitting embellished dresses to bow ties and dinner jackets for the boys.
Just as the fashion took inspiration from the film, a British institution that is also celebrating 50 years on our screens, so did the make-up.
Leading the way on the red carpet were the Skyfall Bond girls, Naomie Harris, a fellow Mi6 field agent Eve’ and Berenice Marlohe who plays love interest Severin. Both Bond girls chose a smoky eye (very apt) to team with their floor length gowns. Naomie with a classic black eye whilst Berenice’s exotic navy eye with a pop of red just underneath to match her red gown (which also matched the red carpet!).
Aside from the cast members, there were plenty of unofficial Bond girls hitting the red carpet. Check out X-Factor’s Jade Ellis, we just love how she’s channelling Rihanna one week and next week her tinted pink hair is tied back into a red carpet worthy do teamed with a slick of Bond girl -worthy scarlet lipstick.
Then there was the red lip brigade, again a Bond girl must! As well as Jade Elis, Minnie Driver and Kelly Brook looked every inch the part with their crimson lips and tips (we're loving the trend for matching your lip and nail colour) whilst Victoria Pendleton could have been mistaken for a cast member with her smouldering eyes and dishevelled updo.
Oh and we couldn’t resist to mention Daniel Craig, he looked beautiful as ever!
