Gemma Arterton – 007 Heaven

Former Bond Girl Gemma Arterton always looks fabulous, but she’s definitely flashing a lot less flesh on the red carpet than she did when she was OO7’s assistant.

The up and coming British actress says she matches her off duty outfits to those of her film characters, and she has just been cast in the film adaptation of Emily Brontes classic novel Wuthering Heights.

The black and white one shoulder dress that the former Lush make-up artist wore to The First Light film awards screams elegance.

If you want to copy the look there are a couple of similarly ladylike women’s dresses at

Gemma starts filming – with Gossip Girl’s Ed Westwick next month so expect her understatedly classic phase to continue for the next three months at least.

In fact, Gemma told us at the event at The Odeon in Leicester Square: “I’m just testing the waters at the moment. By the time we’re mid-way through the movie, I’ll be going to functions wearing lots of lace and really looking like I am from a different era.”

Gemma has a good idea of matching clothes to films to get you in the mood, but what would happen if she was cast as a monkey or a monster?!

We think we’ll stay with elegant women’s dresses for now!
