OPI: A merchandise tie-in with nail lacquer brand OPI may seem like a head-scratcher — until you consider the number of women who have tried to sink their talons into Bond over the years. In October, OPI released a limited-edition, 12-color Skyfall collection inspired by various Bond films. Two of those shades were also used to create Berenice Marlohe’s two-tone manicure for the movie; the tops of the fingernails painted a maroon hue called Skyfall, and the underside of each nail painted a glittery gold shade dubbed GoldenEye. ($8.50 at OPI retailers.)

Orlebar Brown: What is it about James Bond and the parade of pale-blue swimtrunks? In 1964’s “Thunderball,” Sean Connery famously sported a pair of Sunspel trunks. In 2006’s “Casino Royale,” Daniel Craig strode out of the surf clad in a barely there pair by La Perla. Six years later, in “Skyfall,” costume designer Jany Temime chose a powder-blue pair of Orlebar Brown’s short, retro-style Setter swimtrunks in a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it pool scene, specifically as an homage to Connery’s original trunks.
