Eve (played by Naomie Harris) wears an Amanda Wakeley dress in the movie SkyFall (2012). Eve wears the designer dress in the Casino scene in Macau, and James Bond (Daniel Craig) even compliments her on the dress.

This Amanda Wakeley dress is from the 2011 collection, but made available again for the 2012 season. The dress sold out quickly for £995 at AmandaWakeley.com. The color of the dress in the film is Peridot, but is also available in Persian or Moss. The dress has been slightly altered for Naomie Harris. One obvious difference of the screenused dress and the original Amanda Wakeley dress is the shoulder strap on the version in the film.

Wakeley was first approached in 2011 to be involved with the film, before working with Temime to choose a yellow strapless floor-length gown for Harris to wear in an action-packed casino scene and two understated felt shift dresses for Judi Dench (who plays M).

Wakeley told vogue.co.uk: "The wardrobe designer Jany Temime approached us and selected a number of our autumn/winter 2011-12 dresses. Since much of the film takes place in London, I think that Jany was interested in working with an iconic London designer. We could have designed something special for the movie, but when Jany and I looked through the collection together, there were a number of dresses that really seemed to fit the brief."

"I am a huge fan of James Bond, so dressing not one, but two Bond girls is fantastic," said Wakeley. "Bond girls are always glamorous and incredibly smart. It is a pleasure to be associated with one of the most iconic film franchises ever. For our brand it is great global exposure. And, we loved that M also wore Amanda Wakeley - she's so chic, powerful and understated. I think it is wonderful for Amanda Wakeley in that it conveys the breadth of our design reach, from glam evening to more understated daywear."

Details of Eve's dress: bias cut strapless Crepe Back Satin maxi dress with visible fold and stitch detailing; 100% silk; strapless style (although the film version has a shoulder strap on one side); internal corset for support; concealed side zip.

Amanda Wakely clothing was also used in the film Die Another Day (2002), and the brand is mentioned in the end credits.
