I have never ever seen so many glamorous women, nor so many outstandingly beautiful women, at any event, either sporting, of the arts, or of the movies, anywhere. Not the Kentucky Derby Wikipedia - , Royal Ascot Wikipedia - , the Prix de L'Arc de Triomphe Wikipedia - Prix de la Arc de Triomphe, not the Oscars Wikipedia - , BAFTAs Wikipedia - or Cannes Wikipedia - , not the Metropolitan Opera Wikipedia - , Royal Opera House Wikipedia - , nor La Scala Wikipedia - . It was breathtaking. It was like being at the center of the world. Thank you Ian Fleming. Thank you EON Productions. Thank you.

 

Skyfall (2012) is well worth seeing and ranks with the Connery Era Bond movies.

If you are the fabulous young lady in the fabulous ball gown who kindly posed for photographs then please send me an email and I will send to you the series of full-size photographs.

beautiful and mysterious woman

The VIPs were dropped at the start of the red carpet which was about 150m down Prince Consort Road, walked in front of the big screen in front of the Royal College of Music (center left frame) and then all the way up the South Steps (center foreground) and past the monument (center) into the South Porch, then up the stairs into the restaurant which is around to the right, over the Stage Door.

2012-NOV-01 - Erik Lorincz, The cocktail barman at the American Bar at the Savoy Hôtel in London are serving a Skyfall Cocktail, the ingredients of which are secret, presently. For the production of a Martini as described by Fleming in Casino Royale (1953) the American Bar have (supposedly) sourced some 1950s era of Gordon's gin and Smirnoff vodka in addition to some Kina Lillet Wikipedia - Kina Lillet. This is very worthy but I am skeptical when I hear "new old stock" stories because the wrist-watch trade use them a lot to cover the fact that they are trying to sell reproductions. I am prepared to be convinced by proof, however. The cost of the Martini appears to be the best part of a thousand Pounds (that is Pounds, not Euros or Dollars). At that price I would want to see proof.
