Amanda Wakeley: How I Dressed Bond’s Girls

Amanda Wakeley created a collection of dresses for latest James Bond film, Skyfall, which premieres in London tonight. The British designer's work will be worn by Dame Judi Dench, who plays the iconic spy's boss, M, and by Naomie Harris - a fellow MI6 undercover agent called Eve.

Wakeley was first approached in 2011 to be involved with the film, before working with Temime to choose a yellow strapless floor-length gown for Harris to wear in an action-packed casino scene (now available to buy from the label's Fulham store), and two understated felt shift dresses for Dench.
 "I am a huge fan of James Bond, so dressing not one, but two Bond girls is fantastic," said Wakeley. "Bond girls are always glamorous and incredibly smart. It is a pleasure to be associated with one of the most iconic film franchises ever. For our brand it is great global exposure. And, we loved that M also wore Amanda Wakeley - she's so chic, powerful and understated. I think it is wonderful for Amanda Wakeley in that it conveys the breadth of our design reach, from glam evening to more understated daywear."

 Berenice Marlohe isnt included in Amanda's dress designs though they are still expertisely designed for the sultry theme in all bond films.
