Girl Power at Bond In Motion

20 October, 2017

Bond in Motion at the London Film Museum has installed a new display of original film cars driven by female characters starring alongside James Bond. Also included are previously unseen costumes and props, some of which we hadn't identify yet on Bond Lifestyle.

Tilly Masterson (Tania Mallet) was the very first Bond actress to drive a car in the film Goldfinger, and the Mustang she drove was a pre-production car acquired from Ford especially for the film. An original production memo from January 1964 requesting driving lessons for Tania Mallet forms part of the new display.

A great new addition to the exhibition is the SkyFall costume of Eve Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) which includes the Belstaff New Selsey jacket, a white H&M silk vest and J Brand black leather trousers (the last two brands were previously not mentioned yet on Bond Lifestyle).
