Skyfall: Royal World Premier 

The name’s Max. Leon Max. Works every time doesn’t it? Well that gag was all the rage last night in London which saw the most glamorous film premiere in years landed on the Royal Albert Hall in Kensington; for the new Bond film, the 23rd in fact, Skyfall. It might have been the fact that the reviews have been very good. It might have been it was a grand gala premiere in the Royal Presence of the Prince of Wales and the fragrant Duchess of Cornwall. Or it might have just been that London was in the mood to party, either way a huge cheer went up when Daniel Craig – Bond – alighted onto the red carpet. Even he admitted it was the best of the films yet. But these films and last night were about one thing – the Girls and the Glamour. London beauty and Bond girl Naomie Harris was there. And Craig had his wife siren, Rachel Weisz on his arm. But then there was also the new Bond girl, Berenice Marlohe looking to die for. She even went one step further than the others and changed into Frock No.2 for the glam after party thrown in the industrial environs of the Tate Modern. There the Fiennes family was also out in force, actor Ralph phalanxed either side by his sisters, Sophie and Martha, both film directors. They were suitably impressed by the decor – the main hall of the art gallery was cast as a Shanghai street scene replete with Chinese Dragon. The real deal.
