Let’s hope that Naomie Harris is wearing a suitably large pair of granny pants underneath her Oscars gown. The Skyfall star risked disaster in the golden dress, which was slit from the ankle to the waist.
While the dress deliberately revealed Naomie’s toned legs, it nearly showed too much of them. As she twisted and turned for the cameras on the red carpet the British star only narrowly avoided showing her underwear.
While it might be revealing, the dress itself is at least good for the environment – it is made from recycled materials. The gown was the winning design in Suzy Amis Cameron’s Red Carpet Green Dress Challenge. It was made by Ghana-born Michael Badger, a fashion design student at Savannah College of Art and Design, who was mentored by Vivienne Westwood. The dress was created from organic silk crepe de chine and embellished using recycled zippers.
The embroidery on the chest was created by the Royal School of Needlework and features vintage glass beads and chocolate wrappers. A press release states that the gown was inspired by volcanoes and the appearance of flowing lava. The golden colour was created using goldenrod and chamomile, with no chemicals. It is a big night for Naomie.
The Pirates of the Caribbean star resurrects Miss Moneypenny in the James Bond franchise, which is with five nominations has more nods than any other Bond film in history. The evening will also feature a tribute marking 50 years of Bond, featuring Adele singing Skyfall’s theme. – Dailymail
