She was centre stage on Sunday evening as the second annual Russian Ball got underway at London’s Old Billingsgate Hall.
Arriving in a sweeping white gown, actress Olga Kurylenko looked stunning ahead of the celebratory event, which aims to combine European sophistication and Russian grandeur with a select guest list comprised of businessmen, politicians and media personalities.
With its embellished lace detail and off the shoulder design, the 34-year-old actress, who was born in Russian port city Berdyansk, ensured her dress caught the eye as she sashayed inside the cavernous East End venue.
Olga, who starred alongside Daniel Craig in 2008 Bond film Quantum Of Solace, teamed her gown with a tasteful neck chain, while a simple pink clutch rounded things off.
Keeping her make-up subdued by restricting it to a natural colour palette, the actress made her way inside for a night of traditional Russian food and ballroom dancing with her fellow guests.
The event, which pays tribute to Russian cultural traditions, featured music from classical composer Johan Strauss Jr – who spent several years living in St. Petersburg, from where he wrote some of his famous waltzes.
Former Bond girl Olga is currently starring alongside another 007 incumbent, Pierce Brosnan, in new film The November Man.
The actor played James Bond from 1995-2002, starring in four films – GoldenEye, The World Is Not Enough, Tomorrow Never Dies and Die Another Day – before the mantle was passed onto Daniel Craig.
Olga played Bond Girl Camille Montes in Quantum Of Solace, Craig’s second outing as 007, though the film was not as well received as his first Casino Royale.
In her latest film she plays Alice in the crime thriller, which according to imdb, tells the story of an ex-CIA operative who is brought back in on a very personal mission.
He finds himself pitted against his former pupil in a deadly game involving high level CIA officials and the Russian president-elect.
Meanwhile, Explorer News says of Brosnan’s role: ‘The November Man reminds us of why Brosnan was once selected as only the fifth person to play Bond.
‘He’s cool, confident, unflappable and never flustered by mayhem around him.’
