Bright red lipstick and nails matched the shiny color of the car, and her hairstyle was a tumble of black glossy curls swept on her shoulder.

Bond girls have a legacy of glamour, beauty, and seductive power, and their allure doesn’t seem to be waning anytime soon with the newest Bond girl of the much-anticipated Skyfall. French beauty Berenice Marlohe, who plays Bond girl Sévérine, attended the Skyfall photocall in Russia, reported Celebrity-Gossip.net.

She posed for photographs on the roof of the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Moscow on Saturday, September 29, 2012–a vision in a heart-shaped peplum dress embroidered with an elaborate silver design on the blouse. The dress’s length reached to her knee, which was disappointing as many would have liked to see her lithe legs.

She was free of accessories except for small silver earrings and sparkly heels for a little silvery glow. Her hair was teased into loose elegant curls and swept across her bare shoulder. A few tendrils even framed her lovely face.

Issey Miyake’s spring and summer 2013 collection had an array of exuberant colors in graphic prints molded on loose silhouettes. The design concept was “vibrantly colored images of birds alighting . . . and flapping their wings,” according to the program. Makeup artist Lucia Pieroni derived inspiration from a facet of the collection–“bird feather in water”–to devise the makeup premise. It wasreported on Allure‘s website that the makeup artist wanted the models to look as if they had just emerged from the water to show off their beautiful outfits.

To achieve that watery radiance, she blended M.A.C. Platinum Pigment with a Water Based Mixing Medium to create a molten metallic liquid. A stroke of it on both eyelids gave the impression of reflected light, similar to sunrays hitting the surface of a pond. The models’ skin was prepped with M.A.C. Strobe Cream before being layered with foundation. On top of this, a clear lip balm was traced down the center of the models’ faces to evoke the trickle of water on skin as a person leaves the pool.
