Bond Girls in Bloom at Casino Royale Premiere

The NZ premiere of the latest Bond flick, a Variety fundraiser, will be themed around the Casino plot-line of the film, and will feature 'Bond Girls in Bloom'.

A fashion show is planned in advance of the film screening, featuring 'Bond Girl in Bloom' models in 3 classic Bond Girl looks: evening wear by Yvonne Bennetti, swimwear by JETS and lingerie by Bendon. Guests will be encouraged to bring out their inner Bond Girl, with a prize for the best Bond Girl look-a-like.

The Bond Girl look will be created using the current season Bloom Cosmetics Natural Beauty collection, as well as sophisticated, high glam favourites from previous collections.

"Bloom's signature style is sophistication balanced with a playful spirit – the perfect Bond Girl combo," explains Bloom New Zealand spokesperson, Amanda Holland.

The Bond Girls in Bloom event will be attended by approximately 600 guests at 6:30 on Thursday, 20 November at the SkyCity Theatres in Newmarket.
