Skyfall Style: Severine's Black Gown Features 60,000 Swarovski Crystals
There’s always a sexy Bond girl in every James Bond movie, and when Skyfall, the 23rd film in the franchise, hits U.S. theaters tomorrow, you’ll meet the newest—Bérénice Marlohe, the seductive Parisian actress who plays Severine opposite Daniel Craig’s 007. Her come-hither look is worthy of staring on its own (Bond can prove that), but there’s something else to look out for while you watch the movie—a beautiful black gown with crystal tattoos stitched into it, a piece costume designer Jany Temime put together by hand (see an exclusive sketch, right). “Each Bond girl is iconic in her own way so I wanted to celebrate 007's new leading lady, Severine, with an unforgettable dress,” Temime told InStyle.com. To do so, she used over 60,000 Swarovski Elements crystals, which were sewn onto the fine tulle and sheer fabric of the dress' sleeves, neckline, back, and sides. “[The crystals] are the ultimate creative ingredients to capture one of the most significant scenes in the film,” said Temime. Meet Severine, see the dress, and get a new dose of Bond when Skyfall opens nationwide tomorrow (Friday, November 9).
