James Bond - 50 Years Of James Bond Celebrated In New Exhibition

More than 400 items from James Bond movies have gone on display in London.

'Designing 007: 50 years of Bond Style' features a selection of film posters, costumes and gadgets from over 50 years of movies about the suave secret agent and Oscar-winning costume designer and co-curator Lindy Hemming has called the exhibition ''magical''.

Lindy said: ''It's magic - you go on your own adventure, you are given a mission and you go on an adventure and it ends up that you have produced a film and the film is captured on celluloid so you can look at your own work and that is exciting. It has been an amazing thing to do and I am really glad we have been able to pull it off and hope people come and learn from or enjoy it.''

Lindy also revealed how much research went into the exhibition which features the white bikini worn by Ursula Andress in 'Dr No', Halle Berry's orange two-piece from 'Die Another Day', Daniel Craig's tight blue shorts from 'Casino Royale' and a replica Sean Connery leans against his beautiful 1964 Aston Martin DB5.

She said: ''We have tried to take pieces, interesting objects which would help us to understand design in films and the objects range from gadgets, clothing, jewellery, wonderful drawings of sets and models of sets and artwork.

''It is a vast array of different things. They are all themed in a world that gives you the feel of being in a Bond film. Bond films have been responsible for the British film industry working constantly over the years when there were other lulls and therefore kept many technicicans in employment.''

The display will tour internationally after the show closes at London's Barbican in September.
