I don't usually care much for the testosterone laden James Bond movie franchise.  But I will be making an exception for the upcoming movie, Skyfall, for several reasons.  Daniel Craig arguably the best Bond yet, Judi Dench, Adele's rendition of the theme song and one superb costume design in particular.

The black satin and tulle evening dress worn by actress Berenice Marlohe, who plays the part of Severine, just sparkles aplenty with some 60,000 Swarovski Elements, every single one of them individually applied.

The designer, Jany Temime, did a fabulous job with what must surely be the ultimate femme fatale dress.  Outstanding features include the illusion of a nipped in waist, a va-va-voom bodice reminiscent of Jessica Rabbit (Who Framed Roger Rabbit) and an intricately designed back. It's astonishing to see such a design on a real life woman and not an over-the-top cartoon character.

Flat back crystals typically used by the garment industry can also be used for jewelry designs.  So check out the following tutorial links!  I have also added the fascinator collection because flat back crystals can easily be applied to those designs.

Here is Adele's Skyfall (with lyrics) enjoy!

And the Skyfall trailer.

Update : I did see the movie and it was marvelous!
