Olga Kurylenko wears a Prada dress and Gina Paris shoes in the 2008 movie Quantum of Solace.

Prada
In the movie Quantum of Solace, Camille (played by Olga Kurylenko) wears a black Prada dress. She starts of wearing the dress at the Greene Planet fund-raiser party and ends up wearing it through many scenes in the film, until it looks completely worn out. One of the dresses used during the filming of Quantum of Solace was sold for £3,750 on July 3rd 2012, at the Bonhams Entertainment Memorabilia auction in London. Another one of the dresses worn by Camille in Quantum of Solace was auctioned at 50 Years of James Bond - The Auction at Christie's which took place online between Friday 28 September and Monday 8 October 2012, where it fetched £9,375.

Gina Paris
With the dress, Camille wears Gina shoes, style 'Paris' (not available anymore). The shoes can clearly be spotted in the desert scene, where Camille takes off the high-heeled shoes to continue barefoot. The dress and the shoes can be seen on the movie posters for the film, in the image of Bond and Camille walking in the desert of Bolivia.

Louise Frogley, the costume designer for Quantum of Solace, said in an interview: "We dressed both the girls in Prada for the party scene. It is not like we did a deal with Prada, it just worked out that way. The dresses were very simple but elegant and they were just perfect for the characters and the look I was going for."

Olga's character has to jump out of a plane in the costume worn at Greene's glamorous fundraising party. Frogley and her team had originally thought they would have to dress her in a trouser suit, but that didn't feel right to Frogley, "I realized we were designing the costume to fit the stunts and it seemed to me we were putting the cart before the horse. People took it for granted that it had to be a certain way but when we actually looked at it carefully we questioned why we were designing a trouser suit with arms for a glamorous party set in a hot country - it didn't make sense. So in the end, Camille goes to the party in a fantastic black Prada dress, NOT a trouser suit!" Read the full Frogley interview on CommanderBond.net

In another interview, Louise Frogley says:
"I wanted the Bond girls snappy and slightly '60s, to harmonize with Bond. Prada had the best possible looks so I used them. Muicca Prada was incredibly helpful and made 20 identical dresses for us in one week." One of these Prada dresses and Gina shoes worn by Olga Kurylenko in Quantum of Solace, sold for £7,000 in a charity auction event to benefit the Muir Maxwell Trust, on 29 November 2008 at the Sheraton Grand Hotel in Edinburgh, UK. The clothes were donated by Bond producer Barbara Broccoli.

A version of the the Black "Paris" shoes from Gina, are currently back on the website:

http://www.gina.com/paris-2539.aspx

These new ones are made of a glossy leather, which differs from the older style (which, based on the other shoes from the website, were either black suede or satin. Hard to tell from the images)

And what about the sneakers she wears in the desert before entering the hotel?
