Costume designer Jany Temime on dressing Daniel Craig (as Bond) and Dwayne Johnson (as Hercules)

Last week, costume designer Jany Temime picked up the Costume Designers Guild Award in the category of Excellence in Contemporary Film for her work on Skyfall. 

Now that she’s helped Daniel Craig nail his James Bond aesthetic — which included tailoring the actor’s Skyfall suits to within an inch of his life – Temime says her next project involves “another beautiful body.”

“I’m doing Hercules with Brett Ratner,” Temime told EW of signing on to create the wardrobe for Hercules: The Thracian Wars, set for release next summer. “Hercules will be played by The Rock [Dwayne Johnson]… It’s fun because it’s big armies and Greeks. It’s huge.”

While the project is still in pre-production, the costume designer is already hard at work planning the wardrobe. Her biggest challenge so far?  READ FULL STORY

Best of 2012 (Behind the Scenes): Why James Bond's pants are getting tighter

That sly smirk, those smooth suits, and of course, the gadgets. British secret agent James Bond has been around on film for 50 years, running and posing, an iconic male fashion plate. But even as embodied by a range of actors, from the manly Sean Connery to the charming Roger Moore, the svelte Pierce Brosnan, and, since 2006, the gritty, blonde Daniel Craig, a few things remain the same for 007’s look: pure, tailored, retro coolness. Here, in an article originally posted before Skyfall hit theaters, costume designer Jany Temime takes us behind the seams.

When it came to pulling together Craig’s outfits for his third Bond vehicle, costume designer Jany Temime turned to trusted source Tom Ford. The designer, who created Craig’s bespoke suits for 2008’s Quantum of Solace, took things a step further for Skyfall, providing a head-to-toe wardrobe for Bond, from hard leather lace-up ankle boots, to tuxedos, suits and overcoats, custom cuff links and sleek aviator shades, all from Ford’s eponymous label.

“Tom Ford has been a dream. He completely respected what I wanted,” said Temime, whose past work includes dressing Harry, Hermione and the rest of the cast of characters in the Harry Potter franchise.  READ FULL STORY

Bond Girl Fashion Face-Off: Ursula Andress vs. Halle Berry

Today marks the 50th anniversary of the James Bond film franchise, and everyone knows you can’t have a Bond movie without at least one Bond Girl. Not all of 007′s female companions have been perfect 10′s, but Ursula Andress and Halle Berry definitely top the list.

Swiss sexpot Andress was the very first Bond Girl, washing up on the beach to tempt Sean Connery as Honey Ryder in 1962′s Dr. No. Forty years later, Berry slipped into a similar-looking two-piece to play Jinx Johnson opposite Pierce Brosnan in Die Another Day.
