In a rare break away from royal dinners and community appearances, Kate Middleton and Prince William took to the red carpet in London last night for the premiere of Spectre.

Wearing one of her favourite designers, Jenny Packham, the Duchess embraced the glamour of the evening by going for a style that was certainly more daring than usual.

Her sheer duck-egg blue gown featured a draped neckline and an open back, but Kate worked the sexy look like a pro. 

The dress, with its embellished waistband and sleeves, was teamed with some seriously high-class accessories – glittering gold Jimmy Choo stilettos and Robinson Pelham diamond earrings worth a staggering €20,000.

Also in attendance at the CTBF Royal Film Performance was Prince Harry, who spent some time getting to know Daniel Craig and his wife Rachel Weisz.

Despite arriving on the arms of his co-stars Lea Seydoux and Monica Bellucci, Daniel couldn't keep his hands off Rachel, stopping to cuddle and kiss her on the way into the theatre.

Even when she's not wowing at red carpet events, Kate still manages to be very on-trend indeed – earlier in the weekend she rocked a space print Tabitha Webb dress that will no doubt sell out over the next few days.

When it comes to style, our Kate can do no wrong it seems.



Daniel Craig is Bond through-and-through, as he showed during a recent interview when he shut down a reporter with nothing more than an icy stare.

ITV's Sarah Powell was chatting to Daniel ahead of the release of Spectre when she asked him to do his signature Bond "pout."

Fans of the film franchise will know of Daniel's intense, pouty-lipped look, but it seems Daniel himself wasn't aware of the hype he'd created.

Probably because that pout is actually just… his normal face:

So when Sarah repeatedly asked Daniel to "do the pout," he was none to happy.

At first he gently refused, but once she brought it up again, she was swiftly told, "I think you need to move on."

Ouch. Check out the cringe-inducing clip above.


Daniel Craig is apparently more than ready to hand over his James Bond title.

His fourth turn at portraying the iconic spy Spectre will be released this month. While some would think that it might be difficult to hand over the role and see someone else take over, Daniel is actually kind of over it.

When asked how he would feel about doing another Bond film, his answer was pretty straight forward:

“I'd rather break this glass and slash my wrists. No, not at the moment."

He told Time Out London that his “over it at the moment” and all he really wants to do it “move on”.

He first took on the role back in 2006 and the 47-year old believe that at this point the creative drive for the film franchise has run “dry”.

"If I did another Bond movie, it would only be for the money," he added.

He still believes it was “ludicrous” that he was cast in the role in the first place and isn’t entirely sure where the next films could go- “space, maybe?” was his suggestion.

He also is not at all interested in the great big internet debate about who will take over after he steps back from the franchise.

“Look, I don't give a f—. Good luck to them!" he said.

"All I care about is that if I stop doing these things we've left it in a good place and people pick it up and make it better.”

Does he have any advice for the next 007?

“Embrace it. Some clichéd line like that. But no, just make sure you're great.”



We're on the verge of a brand new James Bond: Spectre will hit cinemas at the end of the next month.

And after the success of Skyfall in 2012, it's certainly highly anticipated by fans of the Ian Fleming franchise.

However, rumour is also abound that the 2015 release will represent Daniel Craig's fourth and final portrayal of the iconic British spy.

The likes of Londoner Idris Elba and Kerryman Michael Fassbender have already been linked to the role, but if recent reports are to be believed, it seems that producers already have their heart set on another candidate: Damian Lewis of Homeland fame.

The Sunday Mirror claimed yesterday that the 44-year-old has been given an "unofficial nod" from producers of the movies, and that he is very much their first choice.

A source told the paper: "If Daniel Craig leaves, it's Damian Lewis who will be crowned the Bond.

"He is seen as an all-round international star who is perfect for the role. As he ages, he looks increasingly suave and sophisticated.

"Bond bosses are now convinced Damian is their man."

However, it is the fans themselves that might need more convincing. 

"No!!!!! Cannot see that working. He has zero charisma. Idris Elba would be the best choice," stated one emphatically, while others said that his ginger hair alone would rendered him unsuitable.

Although, as another highlighted, Mr Craig leaves big shoes to fill: "Daniel Craig had done such a good job whoever follows him has an almost impossible task," they offered. 




Sam Smith has announced that he will sing the theme for the new Bond film, Spectre.

The Grammy winner had teased at his involvement with the film over the weekend over social media (in the middle of his Electric Picnic preparations we presume) and now it has been confirmed that Sam will be singing Writing’s On The Wall.

The track was co-written with Jimmy Napes, with whom Sam has collaborated with previously on Stay With Me and Naughty Boy’s La La La.

On Instagram the singer wrote: “This is one of the highlights of my career. I am honoured to finally announce that I will be singing the next Bond theme song.”

Sprectre will be the twenty fourth Bond film to be released in Ireland on 26 October. Sam’s single, released by Capitol Records, will debut and be available to stream on 25 September.

Writing’s On The Wall will be the first time a Bond theme song has been recorded by a male solo artist since 1965. Speaking about the announcement the producers of Spectre, Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli said:

“Sam and Jimmy have written the most inspirational song for Spectre and with Sam’s extraordinary vocal performance, Writing’s On The Wall will surely be considered one of the greatest Bond songs of all time.”

The previous Bond themes have made for some of the most memorable film music of all time. The last theme, Skyfall, was performed by Adele and went on to win a number of awards. These included the Academy Award and Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song.

Sam told Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw he was relieved to finally be able to talk about the project, saying it “has been the top secret mission of my life.”

“I got called into the office with Barbara Broccoli and Sam Mendes and they gave me the script, I read the script. They said ‘have a go at the song’.”

We can’t wait to hear this!



The follow-up to Skyfall is here… almost!

Daniel Craig's next stint as 007 will hit cinemas in November, but in the meantime, Sony Pictures have released the FIRST behind the scenes look at the new movie, Spectre… which is currently being filmed in the isolated surroundings of Austria's snow-covered mountains.

The cast and crew definitely don't have an easy task working in such  a harsh and unforgiving location, but the rewards are more than worth it. "It's a real challenge to be up here, but the payoff is stunning scenery and an incredible location," said production manager Martin Joy.

We can't wait for the first teaser trailer!
