Penelope sings 007 in collaboration with the Darnell Collection
Skyfall - “Skyfall” 2012
Dress by Viviene Westwood, England, 2000s
Skyfall was released in 2012 featuring Daniel Craig in his third performance as James Bond with Javier Bardem as Raoul Silva, the film's villain. It was directed by Sam Mendes. Bond's loyalty to M is tested when her past comes back to haunt her. Whilst MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost. The original song is a stunning performance by Adel but this recorded version shakes things up and virtuoso violinist Didier Lockwod pulls out all the stops with his sound effects that bring a new spin to this dramatic theme.
This Viviene Westwood dress is made of exactly the same fabric as the dress worn by Penelope of this album’s cover. Séverine (Bérénice Lim Marlohe) would dazzle in this slinky, sequinned sensation under the dim lights of a Macau casino. Great choice Charlotte!
