Skyfall

Skyfall film stillsSkyfall takes the James Bond film franchise to the next level. The film goes deeper into the psychology of the ageing spy (Daniel Craig) as he faces the most frighteningly intelligent and powerful villain yet (Javier Bardem). It also explores M’s mysterious past, and the difficulties of personal relationships in MI6. Sam Mendes direction creates stunning scenes, particularly the Shanghai skyscrapers and shots of the Highlands, but keeps the exhilarating stunts and fights that you want from 007. The additions of Ralph Fiennes and Ben Whishaw add fresh dynamics to the team, as does the beautiful Naomie Harris as Eve, the woman that Bond films were waiting for. More than just a femme fatale or damsel in distress, I really look forward to seeing her character develop in further films. This brings me to my only problem with Skyfall; I don’t quite understand the role of Severine (played by the gorgeous Bérénice Marlohe), although she fulfils the typical ‘Bond-girl’ slot wonderfully, her character does seem quite expendable. That said, I can certainly see why it is the highest-grossing film in the UK, and very much look forward to the next instalment.

Whatever my issue with Severine’s character, her wardrobe is stunning – particularly her lust-worthy embellished evening dress. For a range of head-turners, I suggest Forever Unique or Coast’s gowns. Let the oriental settings inspire you with rich colours and intricate patterns, while Eve’s beautifully tailored wardrobe demonstrates a chic, modern look. Accessorise with a Martini – shaken, not stirred.
