It was a moment that the showbiz world had been waiting for. After numerous delays and more than 18 months of postponement as a result of the pandemic, the latest James Bond film is finally set for release. And, for the stars involved, it was a big moment.

Last night saw them attend the premiere of No Time To Die at London's Royal Albert Hall. Daniel Craig was joined by the likes of Rami Malek, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Cary Joji Fukunaga, Dame Donna Langley, Lashana Lynch and Naomie Harris, as well as Léa Seydoux and Ana de Armas, who both chose custom looks by Louis Vuitton for the big red-carpet event.

Seydoux – who is reprising her role in the latest film – brought plenty of glamour to the event, wearing a white silk gown, which featured a sparkling chiffon cape.

The design took over 520 hours to create as 29,000 sequins, 50,000 cuvettes and 8,800 glass beads were intricately placed on the design. The sections of the dress, including the skirt, top, belt and cape all required precise construction and individual assembly. Scroll through below to see exactly how the beautiful gown came together in the atelier.

Meanwhile, de Armas also garnered plenty of attention in her custom Louis Vuitton look, which was a bias-cut, velvet gown with a deep V neckline and a thigh-high split.

The dress was just as intricate as Seydoux's, with the chain straps having to be created through 3D laser cutting, while they were embroidered with 7,520 Japanese beads, 980 glass beads and 820 rhinestones. This process took over 103 hours to complete in the Louis Vuitton atelier.
