Berenice Marlohe in Armani at the Berlin ‘Skyfall’ premiere: terrible or sexy?

I haven’t been covering much of the European publicity tour for Skyfall, just because I found most of the photos kind of boring. Naomie Harris got kicked off many of the European stops, and it’s mostly just been Daniel Craig and Berenice Marlohe, with Javier Bardem showing up in a few cities too. Anyway, these are photos from Berenice and Daniel stop in Berlin yesterday. I’m including photos from last night’s premiere as well as the earlier photo call.

The premiere photos have Berenice in a really bad black Armani gown, and the photo call pics have her in that beautiful blue suit. The suit is by Ports 1961. It would stand out more if she wasn’t standing against a ‘Skyfall’ backdrop that was the exact same shade of blue-purple. But other than that, I like the look. I like how winter-y she looks. I get tired of starlets just wearing whatever is “new” rather than what’s suitable for the season and the city. As for the black Armani… God, it’s awful. AND HER HAIR.

As for Daniel Craig… well, he always looks good during these tours. Daniel is getting great reviews for this Bond film, and the film is making buckets of money in Europe right now – but it doesn’t come out in the US until November 9th! I can’t wait. Also: riding on the success of this 007 outing, Daniel has just signed on to work with George Clooney! Clooney has finally put together his long-gestating project The Monuments Men, based on the true story of the team that recovered thousands of pieces of European artwork during and after World War II. Clooney has co-written the screenplay, and he’s direct and star. Daniel joins an impressive cast that also includes Bill Murray, Jean Dujardin, Cate Blanchett, John Goodman, Hugh Bonneville and Bob Balaban. If you ever want to watch the documentary about the exact same subject matter, it’s called The Rape of Europa, and it’s excellent.

    They’re trying to recreate that Monica Bellucci vibe methinks, but only Monica can pull the dress off.

    The only time Berenice is absolutely stunningly dressed is in Skyfall… And SPOILER here : her role is totally minor, I dare say irrelevant :-/

    Wow, that’s how I pull my hair for a lazy day at home. Never in a million years would I consider it a red carpet look. To think some stylist got paid good $$$ to make her look that bad…I would have told her for free not to let them do that to her.

    good styling overall.
    but the Knee Peplum has got to go.

    • Lizzie says:

      EXACTLY! it’s just the weirdo knee peplum and the god awful hair. if she had a sleek bun and a dress falling straight to her feet with a ruffle down there, she would have been gorgeous!!

    The dress is awesome, the hair looks like she’s going to the gym.

  5. Reece says:

    The dress is…interesting. Not good or bad but interesting. Don’t like the hair. Would look better all up imo.
    Look how they match in the blue. :/

    You would think a Bond Girl with that body, and all the best designers queuing up to dress her, would manage to look good. But every single dress I’ve seen her in has been hideous. And her make-up always looks as though she’s going to a Haloween party, not a premiere.

    And maybe it’s just the bad make-up, but I think that while Berenice has a fantastic body, facially she’s really not very pretty.

    Why was Naomie kicked off the European tour??

  8. Suzie says:

    Love the purple blue suit, but my taste is not bell bottoms for trousers. The trousers would look much nicer straight and not flared. The black dress seriously needs a cover up at the top, like a shawl over the shoulders. Far too fleshy for the season and not a nice design overall.

    The movie is great. Full of actors acting. And that includes Berenice in what is actually a small role. Naomie has much more screen time but her style is very reminiscent of any number of Bond girlys from times long gone. All jiggly and useless. Which is strange really since Naomie is a very successful actress. Wasnt she in Pirates and some Ninja movie. Bardem is an amazing villain. And suprisingly Judy struggles in many scenes. Skyfall is a very British movie. Difficult to see how it’ll recoup its $200 million budget though. Difficult to see where the $200 million went even. imo of course.

    Lol, was she channeling Mary Tyler Moore with that god awful pantsuit.
