Costume Inspiration: Queen Elizabeth The Bond Girl

After the roaring success of Danny Boyle’s genius and entertaining opening ceremony for the London 2012 Olympics, a host of British characters have regained popularity among the fancy dress costume fashionistas. Peter Pan, Harry Potter, Mary Poppins, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Mr Bean played starring roles in the masterpiece and probably one of the most talked about moments, worldwide, was the newest Bond Girl, appearing along side a dashing Daniel Craig – Queen Elizabeth II. HRH showed great humour and surprised us all in a cameo with James Bond, then appearing to parachute from a helicopter above the stadium before her official arrival at London 2012.
