DANIEL CRAIG SUITS UP IN “SKYFALL”
The British actor makes his third outing as suave spy James Bond in the upcoming instalment Skyfall. Acclaimed designer Tom Ford created the entire wardrobe for Daniel in the action film, and says he chose outfits to show off the Hollywood hunk’s best assets. Designer Jany Temime explains how she came up with the dapper look for the latest James Bond movie, with the help of fashion icon Tom Ford. She says: “You have to respect a certain style – English gentleman, very dressed up, sometimes doing a lot of physical stunts with beautiful, glamorous women in exotic locations. So we have to give a new look to a very successful image. And she admits she was pleased that the many stylish whistles the Bond beefcake wore made the most of his muscles.
Due for international release at the end of this month, style observers may want to take their eyes off the explosions, seductive ladies and general high jinks to look out for the ensembles worn by Craig in the film: Tom Ford is providing an entire bespoke wardrobe for the iconic character. Everything worn by James Bond in Skyfall will be Tom Ford: evening tuxedos, shirts, suits, ties, even eyewear.
ake it from the head honcho himself, who said of the collaboration: “I could not be happier to be dressing Daniel Craig again in the next James Bond film. James Bond epitomizes the Tom Ford man in his elegance, style and love of luxury. I am thrilled to move forward with this iconic character.” Skyfall, Daniel’s third outing as 007, also stars Judi Dench as M and Ralph Fiennes as fellow agent Gareth Mallory.
The Bond Villain role is taken by Oscar-winner Javier Bardem while Naomie Harris Berenice Marlohe step into the elegant shoes of the Bond girls.
