We break the bad news to Bond actress Naomie about her Ferrero Rocher wrappers frock
There's only one thing worse than turning up on the red carpet wearing the same dress as someone else... finding out your Oscar dress idea has already been done. It’s a fashion fail of Katie Price proportions.
Bond actress Naomie Harris now feels as uncomfortable as Victoria Beckham in flats about her Oscar frock thanks to us. Erm, awks.
She revealed her plans to go “eco” and wear a frock made from recycled sweet wrappers courtesy of Vivienne Westwood when she attends the film bash next weekend. The only snag is Harry Potter actress Emma Watson got there first. And we had to break the news.
Naomie said: “I’ve been having fittings for the dress this week and it’s fabulous, designed by a guy called Michael Badger from Ghana who won the Red Carpet Green Dress Challenge. He is lovely and based his design on a volcano and flowing lava. He didn’t know I was going to be wearing it when he won and they flew him to London so he could be there for my fitting.” This, she added, was at Vivienne Westwood HQ, where it was being made. “I’m really into sustainability and recycling and this is a great way to show it.”
And then we dropped a style bombshell the size of Sarah Jessica Parker’s cupboard... she’s not the first to wear a dress which looks like Ferrero Rocher wrappers – another Brit A-lister did last a couple of years ago. Eeek.
Naomie’s face fell faster than a Bond villain dispatched with a Walther PPK when we showed her a picture of Emma’s gold outfit.
She said: “Oh my goodness it is a bit similar, I can’t believe she’s done it first.”
Then, quickly regaining her composure (what a pro) she added: “Obviously, mine is more of a gown rather than a party dress. I kind of wish you hadn’t shown me but good researching skills.” Why thank you.
While Naomie is comfortable dressing up, she’s revealed she’s not that happy stripping off. Talking on a train, renamed Skyfall to promote the release of the DVD and Blu-ray tomorrow, she said: “I don’t think as an actress you should have to resort to nudity. I told Michael Mann, the director of Miami Vice, I wouldn’t do it.”
Don’t worry about the weekend Naomie. You’ll still look sweet! (Grovel, grovel.)
