Who was the best-dressed lady at the London ‘Spectre’ premiere?


You know what upsets me about these photos from the big royal premiere of Spectre in London last night? That they didn’t let Moneypenny pose with James and the Bond Girls! WTF? Naomie Harris – who plays Moneypenny – posed separately from Daniel Craig, Lea Seydoux and Monica Bellucci for some reason. I don’t get it. Naomie is gorgeous. Maybe even too gorgeous to play Moneypenny.

Anyway, everyone looked glamorous and dashing and I really don’t have any complaints at all. Daniel wore a beautifully cut Tom Ford tuxedo which fits him perfectly. Lea Seydoux wore glittery Prada which is stunning from the front and slightly annoying from the back (I hate it when a plunging back is interrupted by a belt). Lea’s hair/makeup/everything is on point though – she’s just beautiful.

La Bellucci wore Ralph & Russo, an unconventional choice but not an unwelcome one. Most movie stars avoid dark green dresses on a red carpet because they don’t want to look like Christmas, but Monica sort of owns the Christmas vibe and moves beyond it. The velvet could have easily looked cheap but I don’t think it does. My big qualm? Her hair is really bad. She didn’t have those bangs last month, so I don’t know what she was thinking, doing these “Spectre bangs” or whatever. Bangs of Doom. Spectre Seduction Bangs Trauma.




Here’s Naomie Harris in her bright Stella McCartney. The ladies of Spectre did not coordinate their colors at all, but it’s fine. Surprisingly, I don’t hate this even though it’s by Stella. I think Naomie’s beauty elevates a simple, sort of boring dress.


Additional photos: Sam Smith rocking a white tuxedo jacket (Sam did the theme song, “Writing’s On the Wall”) and my favorite addition to the Bond franchise, Ben Whishaw.

    Naomie’s dress immediately reminded me of that now-famous coral Calvin Klein on Emma Stone for some reason. Not super similar, but that’s probably the only time I really enjoy that color (range).

    Lea all the way. She brought it. LOVE the makeup. Monica’s dress I’m sure was gorgeous, but it doesn’t really photograph well. I feel like they should’ve tested that.

      Seydoux was in Blue is the Warmest Colour right? Her acting was great in that so I hope she brings it in Spectre.
      Bellucci looks beautiful, i actually like the bangs! Naomi is so photogenic, love the side part on her, she is simply stunning.

    • Ravensdaughter says:

      Ms. Seydoux looks beautiful, although the dress makes her look busty. I saw her in “Farewell, My Queen” from 2012 and she was only moderately busty in a corset. Did she get implants?

    • Beth says:

      Did you mean Jennifer Lawrence? I immediately thought of the dress she wore to the 2011 Oscars

  2. Mimz says:

    Bellucci <3

    I like her hair. I like the fact that although she oozes glamour and timeless beauty, she still is so easy breezy, hair not overdone, and discreet makeup.

    Ahh… my new crush!!

  3. GlimmerBunny says:

    Naomie Harris looks the best. Lea’s dress is too Vegas-looking and Monica’s is too simple. Can’t wait to see Spectre tomorrow!

  4. LadyMTL says:

    I think Monica looks stunning, even if I am not a fan of bangs in the eyes. The woman is so gorgeous, though, that she could get away with wearing forest green velour in October. I should look half as good when I’m her age.

    As for Naomie Harris’ gown, it fits her beautifully and the color is gorgeous with her skin tone. Big thumbs up from me.

  5. Lk says:

    Bellucci still puts all the younger ladies to shame. She’s a goddess.

  6. Sara says:

    Monica FTW. Seydoux is ravishing but a bit bland fashion-wise IMO.

  7. Deedee says:

    Naomie Harris looks slender, feminine and beautiful in that color and that dress. It fits her to a T.

  8. Franca says:

    Lea’s pink after party dress is one of the prettiest dresses I have seen in a very long time.
    Monica also looked better at the afterparty. I’ve never been in awe of her beauty, but I love the bangs. almost everyone looks better with bangs.

    As for the premiere, I only like Naomi’s look.
    Daniel looks like a wax figure.

    • MG says:

      “Almost everyone looks better with bangs”

      Kaiser just spit her coffee out.

      I myself have bangs, almost always have. Of course they have transitioned over the years, they were pretty unfortunate in the late 80’s. Now they are a side swept bang. I have a round race with a larger forehead so I need bangs!

  9. Jayna says:

    They all look great. I love Naomie’s look. But Rachel Weisz stole the show for me. She radiated love and happiness for her man, and I loved her gown on her.

  10. Naddie says:

    Lea is beautiful like always, but this dress is hideous.
    Monica looks too simple in this awful velvet dress ( I loathe velvet) but her beauty makes up for it, so she looks simple yet very good.
    Naomie, hands down. Elegant, sexy, classy… she killed it.
    Can’t stand Sam Smith, ugh.
    Ben is awkwardly lovely.

    • geekychick says:

      Gold Foil Monstrosity Lea is wearing it’s like someone is like hiding a pillar by wrapping it in a cheap material that was used for Barbie dresses in 80ies. It makes her look slightly stocky. But I love velvet and I like the velvet dress.

      • Naddie says:

        Exactly, stocky and very 80’s. And I hate that decade.

      • Bridget says:

        Does it bother anyone else that the dress makes Lea’s boobs look like they’re smack in the middle of her torso?

      • vauvert says:

        Thank you! I was wondering if I am the only one hating that Prada tinsel look. Too high up on the neck, too sparkly by far, the belt is horrendous and her breasts are squished. Hated it.
        Loved Monica’s dress and adored the one not on the red carpet, the beautiful Alexander McQueen that Rachel wore. THAT is a dress for a premiere. I like Naomi a lot and the dress would have been perfect if the neckline were just a bit higher. As it is I look at it and wonder 1. when is she having a wardrobe malfunction and 2. damn, it can’t be that comfortable to wear, probably not having a bra and having to pay attention every second to avoid issue #1. But maybe that’s just me.

  11. kibbles says:

    Bellucci was the best looking at the premiere. There is no contest when La Bellucci shows up. As someone already commented above, she put all the young women to shame including Duchess Kate. The second best is Lea Seydoux. She is a somewhat unconventional beauty, but she exudes sexiness and I love her dress. I think it fits her well and is appropriate for this premiere. Naomi looks nice but the dress is boring and I don’t particularly like the color for this event.

  12. anniefannie says:

    Thats the best Stella design in ah …ever!
    Sam Smiths tuxedo pants are tragic?!? WTH? He loses all that weight and that can’t be bothered to get properly fitted.

  13. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Hate the sparkle dress, and is she going to throw her back out if she trusts her breasts any farther forward? We see them, we see them. Monica and Naomi both look beautiful.

    • Val says:

      I really don’t like Lea’s dress either. I love her but the dress looks odd on her body and doesn’t compliment her figure. They maybe should have done some additional fitting/adjustments.
      Monica looks stunning and that dress is fantastic! Sexy AF!

  14. atiaofthejulii1 says:

    Where is Rafe Fiennes?

  15. Seraphina says:

    Not a fan of what was worn last night. Rachael’s dress was the hit of the night I would say. And she has a great body to carry it off. And the pics of Craig holding his wife’s hand ever so slightly made my heart melt.

  16. EN says:

    Lea looks like an Amber Heard’s twin. I had to check the article to make sure it isn’t her.

    Naomie is the best dressed, that color is really good on her.

  17. Caitlin Bruce says:

    Naomi is the only one of the stars of the film that really stood out even in a slightly boring dress. I understand why she didn’t pose with the BOND girls she’s much more than that. She’s MONEYPENNY. But she could have posed with Daniel by herself.

  18. Christin says:

    Daniel is the closest thing to classic movie star I have seen in some time. He looked great in every photo.

    Even though the post mentions lady, I had to give him props. His wife looked fabulous, too.

  19. Penny says:

    Without a doubt Rachel Weisz

  20. Alex says:

    Not crazy about Lea’s dress but ooh la la if I batted for the other team she would be my crush. Ok she is my crush. She’s got that ‘not conventionally beautiful but absolutely gorgeous’ French thing going. She knocked me out in “Blue is the Warmest Color”. Love her.

  21. The Original Mia says:

    I couldn’t decide between Naomi & Rachel. They both looked amazing. If I had to choose, it would be Naomi. Perfection from top to bottom. Lea’s dress was just too glittery and old to me. It looked better in the receiving line. La Bellucci looked amazing too, but I had issues with her hair.

  22. Paulanie says:

    I hope Rachel Weisz & Daniel Craig get their own post, was pleased to see she showed up for the premiere.

  23. Lara says:

    A little Ben Whishaw story – I was on the tube with my 10 year old brother and Ben got on at the same stop. My brother was staring and turns to me and says ‘he really looks like the man from James Bond!’ I’m acting cool as its London and just smile and say ‘he really does’. When Ben got off the tube he stops by my brother leans down and says ‘I am the man from James Bond’ and gives him a shoulder squeeze. Brother was so happy!

  24. SusanneToo says:

    IMO Naomie wins because the other dresses are just ugly, especially Lea’s. BTW where is Christoph Waltz? He’s the reason I’ll be seeing SPECTRE.

  25. wow says:

    Out of these three women, I liked Naomi’s dress the best. Although it’s rather boring and plain , the color is perfect in her and she manages to make it work.

    Monica, as lovely as she is, looks like Morticia on her way to a funeral and the other lady looks reminds me of a Vegas showgirl.

  26. AlmondJoy says:

    You know what? I seriously can’t choose. All three women look absolutely gorgeous in my eyes. I’m a sucker for sequins/glitter, green is my favorite color and I love how orange looks against brown skin. All three looks are killer 😍😍😍

  27. Saywhatwhen says:

    Two healthy-size, nourished women posing together on a red carpet. Shocked. Shocked I tell you!

  28. sassy says:

    Ummm. Christopher waltz? Where is his pic??

  29. FingerBinger says:

    Naomie Harris is best dressed. Lea Seydoux has best hair.

  30. Tacos and TV says:

    Noami and all of the ladies look drop dead. Wow. Love love love these looks.

  31. taxi says:

    Rachel, Naomie, & Monica, in that order. Lea got stuck with an unbecoming glitter bomb that makes her torso look very chunky & completely disguised any waist she may have.
    Sam? Borrow your shorter brother’s pants? Ridiculous. Oh, Ben, love your talent but the furry face & long floppy bangs just look sloppy. Please visit a barber to sleek up the hair so as not to resemble a wookie..

  32. moon says:

    Naomie – Hate the dress, but LOVE the colour on her.

  33. Carolina says:

    Don’t care. Where’s Christoph?
