Worth every Moneypenny: Naomie Harris looks a million dollars in a white skirt suit at the Bond In Motion exhibition

Naomie Harris was every bit the Bond girl on Tuesday, as she stepped out to support an exhibition of the largest collection of 007 memorabilia.
Housed at the London Film Museum, the actress – who plays Moneypenny in the spy series – wore a crisp white skirt with a matching jacket featuring a plunging neckline.
Naomie, 37, matched the black button on her blazer to her strappy sandals and clutch bag as she joined former Bond girls Maryam d'Abo and Caterina Murino for the unveiling.

Harris also added a pair of Noor Fares geometric octahedron earrings and a geometric rhombus ring, all in white diamonds.
Naomie made her first appearance in the James Bond franchise in Skyfall, with Daniel Craig as 007; as did Caterina but in Casino Royale.
    Maryam starred opposite Timothy Dalton in The Living Daylights back in 1987 as Kara Milovy, a Czechoslovakian cellist and sniper who falls for James Bond. 
    Michael G. Wilson, writer and producer of many of the Bond films, was also in attendance with his half-sibling and fellow 007 producer Barbara Broccoli.

    British race car driver Darren Turner was another guest, who no doubt enjoyed taking a look at the various motors that have featured in the Bond movies over the years.
    BGT judge and comedian David Walliams was also there to check out memorabilia including the classic Aston Martin that has appeared in Bond movies from Goldfinger to Skyfall.
    It turns out the vintage car was Walliams favourite vehicle as he tweeted a picture of the car afterwards, writing: ‘The Bond in Motion exhibition at the London Film Museum is a treasure trove for all Bond fans.’

    Nelson Mandela?s story is an inspiring one from his humble beginnings to his eventual inauguration as the first president of South Africa to ever be elected democratically. His youth and young adulthood were taken up with the struggle against South Africa?s apartheid government. His commitment to freedom for all South Africans landed him in prison, where he spent 27 years. This time of anguish was difficult for him and for the struggle he and others were attempting to keep alive. The patience and courage of Mandela is portrayed as well as the deep personal cost to his health and marriage. We see his emergence from prison and ultimate politic rise as he begins to rule as president of a finally multi-racial South Africa.
