Angling to be a Bond girl? Penelope Cruz's sister Mónica gives Skyfall star Naomie Harris a run for her money in her own plunging black dress

She was wearing a stunning plunging black dress to the Spanish photocall premiere of her new James Bond film Skyfall.
But Naomie Harris had some tough competition in the fashion stakes when Penelope Cruz's sister Mónica turned up.
For the Spanish actress and dancer looked incredible in her own dangerously low-cut gown at the premiere for the film at Santa Ana Square in Madrid.
Daring: Naomie Harris wore a daring plunging black dress to the Spanish photocall premiere of Skyfall, where she posed alongside co-stars Jarvier Bardem and Daniel Craig
Stealing her thunder: Naomi, seen right singing autographs for fans, had some tough competition in the fashion stakes from Bardem's sister-in-law Mónica Cruz, who dazzled in a low-cut gown
Mónica was there to support her brother-in-law Jarvier Bardem, who stars as cyberterrorist Raoul Silva in the spy film.
The 35-year-old displayed her sublime figure in a plunging gown featuring leather and sequin trim.
She accessorised the ensemble with a opalescent clutch bag and some black stilettos.
Sweeping her hair up in a ponytail, she wore heavy wing tip eyeliner and a nude lip for make-up.
Dapper: Naomie's male co-stars looked handsome in their charcoal suits
Meanwhile Naomie looked sexy in her own daring dress.
The 36-year-old, who plays agent Eve Moneypenny, was trim and terrific in the racy little black dress, cinched in at the waist with a leather belt featuring a panther's head.
Naomie paired the look with some strappy stilettos and also wore her hair in a ponytail.
Shiny: Craig opted for a grey suit with considerable shine
Pals: They may play enemies in the film, but Craig and Bardem cosied up on the red-carpet
The Pirates of the Caribbean star posed with the man of the hour, Daniel Craig, who looked dapper in a shiny grey suit paired with matching shirt and tie, and Bardem, who opted for a charcoal suit and open-neck blue shirt.
It's been the most anticipated movie of the year, with excitement brewing since the James Bond cast launched the first Skyfall premiere in London last week.
Celebrating: The cast also posed with the film's director Sam Mendes
Stunning: Model Teresa Baca also opted for a racy plunging gown, showing off her considerable cleavage
Showing some skin: Spanish star Tania Llacer flashed some flesh in her pale pink revealing gown
Sparkling: Spanish actress Lola Marceli was sparkling in her glittering backless gown
And while it was tipped to be popular, the 23rd movie in the spy franchise has now certainly made a huge impact.
Not only did it smash box office records in the UK in its opening weekend, but the movie instantly became the number one film in an astonishing 25 markets overseas.
And if that wasn't enough, it also grossed $77.7 million with its opening weekend of release.
Licence to Thrill: Craig has helped to make Skyfall one of the most successful James Bond movies so far if its opening weekend statistics are anything to go by
It really does have a licence to thrill! New James Bond movie Skyfall has grossed $77.7 million in its opening weekend, getting to number one in 25 overseas markets
The film, starring Craig in his third outing as 007 as well as new Bond girls Harris and Berenice Marlohe, opened to an astonishing $32.4 million (£20.1 million) in Britain alone.
According to Deadline.com, the figure means that it is the biggest opening weekend for a film in 2012 so far, it smashed the all-time Saturday attendance record AND was even the second biggest Friday to Sunday opening off all time in the UK.
Only Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 comes in front of Skyfall for that record.
Winning team: Stars of Skyfall Craig and Harris attended a photocall for the film earlier in the day at the Villamagna Hotel
Making an impact: Harris wore a burgundy strapless satin frock to one of the latest promotional date on their tour
The film also left scores of other countries shaken and stirred, including the likes of France, Russia, Korea, Bulgaria and Brazil.
It also proved that Craig's popularity in the iconic role is rising as figures dramatically beat his first two turns as the super spy.
Deadline reports that Skyfall's launch was 76 per cent bigger than his first Bond movie, Casino Royale.
They must be pleased: Skyfall director Mendes, latest 007 villain Bardem, Bond Girl Harris and the man himself Craig would have no doubt been delighted with the opening weekend figures
Smashing records: It grossed $32.4 million in the UK alone, making it the biggest opening in Britain of 2012 so far
He's back and means business: Daniel Craig appears in the 23rd Bond movie alongside his new Bond girls Naomie Harris and Berenice Marlohe
And it was 30 per cent bigger than 2008's Quantum Of Solace.
The statistics seem to suggest the film could go on to smash even more records, with Hollywood expecting it to top Quantum Of Solace overall, which grossed a total of $586m (£367.4 m).
Meanwhile 2006's Casino Royale grossed $594.2m (£372.5m) in total, making it the highest grossing film in the Bond Franchise to date.
