ReelzChannel Interview with Daniel Craig

Posted by M. in Nov 06,2008 with 2 Comments

“We started off something in Casino Royale. We had a great storyline, we had a great book, we had a novel by Ian Fleming that was solid and had a love story in it — a really strong love story. And Eva Green played this great part, a wonderful performance, and when it came around to shooting this movie it was like, we can’t just push that aside. We have to develop that; we have to tie up the loose ends here. And that’s what Quantum of Solace is about — it’s him finding his quantum of solace. He’s not on a vendetta. He’s not after revenge. He’s after finding his place.”

More Dior

Posted by M. in Oct 01,2008 with 7 Comments

I’ve added a few more photos to the gallery since the Dior update. I’ll add a few more if I ever find any. So keep checking the site and the gallery.

On another note, I couldn’t help laughing when reading the Libération’s article about the Dior show. They said that Emma Watson looked like a schoolgirl lost in the land of the vamps like Dita Von Teese and Eva Green.

Actually when you stop to see the weird faces some people do in the crowd pictures, that can be quite funny! Look at the lady in the second row, dressed in golden colors, behind Lily Allen, for example.

I’m sorry for the shameless plugs. :P



BOND GIRLS ARE FEMINIST ICONS!

Posted by M. in Sep 23,2008 with 4 Comments

It’s a claim that’s horrified the Sisterhood. But here one female author dares to argue that it’s true…

VESPER LYND Played by Eva Green in Casino Royale, she was Bond’s banker with a secret.
Feminist credentials: Vesper was Fleming’s first Bond girl, and one of his best. She’s a beautiful British agent who has been sent to help Bond – much to his chagrin – in his mission to confound the villainous Le Chiffre. After falling for her, he discovers that she’s been spying for the enemy. Rather than betray him, Vesper kills herself.
Feminist rating: 6/10. It takes a certain guts to betray Bond.
Most likely to say: ‘I can advance you ten million francs.’
Least likely to say: ‘You don’t mind that I betrayed you do you, James?’

Read more about the book and see what they have to say about other Bond girls at the Mail Online website.



Interview with one of Eva’s hair stylists

Posted by M. in Sep 21,2008 with 4 Comments

James David Louis is a hair stylist who lives in Dubai.

I have worked on all kinds of famous people – Michael Schumacher and his brother Ralf, Carolina Herrera, Mariah Carey. Kofi Annan is a gentleman, very quiet when I did his hair, he is very polite, a very nice person. I have done the hair of Marlene Jobert and her daughter Eva Green. Eva is a natural blonde but I first made her a brunette, the colour she was for Casino Royale.

Eva in Seville for the launch of Vanity Fair’s Spanish edition

Posted by M. in Sep 19,2008 with 14 Comments

Eva attended the Vanity Fair Party in Seville, Spain, last night. Some of Europe’s finest were out in Seville last night to celebrate the launch of Vanity Fair’s Spanish edition. Monica Cruz was there to represent the host country, while Brit Orlando Bloom mingled with Eva Green and Olivier Martinez, who are both French. Salma Hayek was the lone North American, looking like a hot mama in her black silk gown. Spain’s hottest actor, Javier Bardem, was off at the San Sebastian Film Festival, but it looks like the international crowd had some fun nonetheless.

Thanks to Astrea for the heads-up. :)

Seems like white is the new black! :P



Sophie Harley’s Algerian Love Knot Necklace Captures Starring Role in New James Bond Movie

Posted by M. in Sep 19,2008 with 9 Comments

Sophie Harley’s stunning contemporary take on an ancient style Algerian Love Knot necklace claims a starring role in the forthcoming James Bond movie, Quantum of Solace, to be premiered 31st October and on-screens from November 08.

Sophie Harley, London based celebrity designer, was approached by the film production team to produce this important piece for the sequel to Casino Royale.

The intricate necklace combines Sophie’s strongest inspirations to create a piece of jewellery that is both ancient and contemporary in style. Incorporating ancient symbols, philosophy and iconography, the piece is as intriguing as the plot and has captured the eyes, minds and hearts of a worldwide audience.

Following the approach from the Casino Royale Bond team, the Algerian Love Knot was born. The piece is seen on leading lady, Vesper Lynd (Eva Green), and will be featured in the forthcoming new movie as central to one of the underlying plot lines.

To celebrate the launch of the new film, Sophie has produced a GBP15,000 solid 18ct gold and diamond encrusted version of the Algerian Love Knot necklace, alongside the original version of the love knot seen in the film, available at a retail price of GBP1,940 (sterling).

The Algerian Love Knot necklace is a beautiful and intricate work of art combining ancient goldsmithing techniques with bold contemporary design. The love knot is also an ancient symbol of enduring and eternal love.

Each piece is hand crafted in Sophie’s London studios, supply is limited and available to order direct from Sophie Harley Design on +44(0)207-430-2070 or via website: http://www.sophieharley.com.

Off-Topic

Hello there,

I’m posting this on behalf of friends of mine. They’re great with news and British magazines, but they’d need a co-web for their three upcoming sites. They need a webpartner to put up the photogallery and help to put up news on the site and someone who can make screencaps and get photos. They have no experience with running websites, but they’ve helped me a lot with contributions for my site. So I think that working with them won’t be a problem.
