Lindy Hemming, the costume designer on “Casino Royale,” said that the similarity between the his and her swimsuit scenes was no accident. Knowing that the scene would cause a sensation and that the publicity photos would be iconic, she was very careful in her choice of swimsuit, picking the GrigioPerla after a long (and, she said, very amusing) fitting session with Mr. Craig.
“He was a new Bond,” she said, “and they were going to pick images that really showed him. Everything was there in that picture.”
Yes, ma’am…everything was in that picture. And now the Times is reporting that Casino Royale caused a seismic shift in men’s swimwear.
Not sure I can agree, but it doesn’t hurt to dream, right?
