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

'Skyfall': New Bond girls wear designer dresses

Daniel Craig isn’t the only character to wear designer threads in the slick new Bond film Skyfall, in theaters on Nov. 9.

After securing suits, tuxes and accessories from Tom Ford, costume designer Jany Temime called on Amanda Wakeley and Donna Karan to dress 007’s Bond girls.

In the action flick, Naomie Harris, who plays an MI6 agent named Eve, dons a yellow gown pulled from Wakeley’s autumn/winter 2011-12 runway for a casino scene.

“Since much of the film takes place in London, I think that Jany was interested in working with an iconic London designer,” Wakeley, whose creations are also worn by Dame Judi Dench’s M, told British Vogue. “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.”  READ FULL STORY
