The Girls of 007

I had the honour of walking in "The Girls of 007" show yesterday. It is a show celebrating and paying tribute to 50 years of the James Bond movie, with 24 BOND girls you saw in all the movies, all styled and wore clothing inspired by the movies. These clothings were made by some really talented designers in SL as listed in the teaser below.


I was assigned two characters:

Plenty O'toole in the episode of "Diamond is Forever"

My beautiful gown for Plenty is from KeZa, made by Zaara Guzzanti. I love the shades of this gown and it is very similar to the one we saw in the movie. 
My second character is Severine in the latest "Skyfall".
....and I was wearing the gown made by Ghee. My picture doesn't quite do justice to this gown because it shimmer and shines when you see it inworld.  It is definitely a killer piece. :)

I couldn't find a similar necklace for this styling so I wore a dagger instead because Severine is not entirely a good Bond girl. :)

Those of you who were at our show yesterday, we hope you enjoyed the Show as much as The Collective team putting it together.  For those who missed it, just head down to the designer stores to grab yourself a copy of your favourite BOND girl outfit. :)

Have a great weekend everyone! <3

Pop Art from ~ghee~

Roy Lichtenstein's 1963 pop art classic is transformed into fashion art by Warm Clarity of ~ghee~ with this simple turtleneck tunic dress. It's my favourite from her new collection of 10 fine art dresses on sale for just 149L$ each - each is unique, with the art work cleverly applied to retain the essence of the original. There's a range of suede over-knee boots in complimentary colours too, at just 99L$, to complete your look. Go check them out - you may find one of your favourite paintings there!
