Bond Girl Style And How To Achieve It
With all this talk of the new bond movie Skyfall, we take a look at the style of a Bond girl. Just like other movie trends are influencing our style (The Great Gatsby and The Artist to name just two), this year, we’re predicting a rise in Bond Girl-looks as you search for your wedding fashion.
Through the years and countless movies, the changing fashions and the different leading ladies, we take a look at the different styles and how you can channel your inner Bond girl.
There is always a certain enigma surrounding the Bond Girl – mysterious, adventurous, seductive, alluring, but always stong, confident women, and this has always been reflected in the clothes they wear.
From daytime chic to sophisticated sexy evening wear here are some of our suggestions:
Do vintage Bond with 1970s style long flowing dresses with deep Vs for the brave…picture Lana Wood in Diamonds are Forever!!
The 1980s saw elaborate gowns, puffy sleeves, big hair á la Kim Basinger and Barbara Carrera in Never Say Never Again.
The Noughties saw the advent of the more modern, stronger sassier Bond Girl, less of an eye candy piece and more of a woman with purpose, but nonetheless as alluring as ever.
Eva Green’s wardrobe in Casino Royale is without a doubt a favourite, from daytime power dressing to those stunning evening gowns, black tie dressing never looked so elegant. These dresses from Coast are great for achieving this Bond Girl look and will most definitely get heads turning.
And if you’d like to add that special touch, what about some Bond Girl make-up hints?
And when putting it all together, think Diamonds are Forever…sparkly delicate strappy standals and that all important, very on-trend clutch bag. Nothing says elegant and feminine like a fine clutch bag!
