As the latest actress to take on the role of Eve Moneypenny in the long-running James Bond franchise, Naomie Harris knows a thing or two about stepping out in glamorous style.
And the 39-year-old actress showed she can keep turning heads once cameras stop rolling, when she made a head-turning arrival at The Boodles Tennis party in Buckinghamshire on Wednesday.
The British beauty wowed as she entered the Stoke Park Hotel wearing a pristine white sleeveless minidress, which featured a large front bow, and was teamed with matching embellished heels.

With her dark cinnamon-tinged tresses resting about her shoulders, the star highlighted her stunning looks with just minimal makeup for the sports-themed bash.
Opting to largely forgo accessories, Cambridge-educated Naomie carried a small black clutch bag as she prepared to mingle with an array of well-heeled guests, including fellow actress Anna Friel.
Anna, also 39, went for a more colourful look, opting to wearing a long, multi-coloured knitted dress, which she wore with white tennis shoes.

‘I would like to dedicate this to my supportive, loving family. Without their love and support I wouldn’t be here,’ she said after accepting her award from David Gandy.
‘I remember one of my first jobs was in Wales and they all turned up with their inflatable mattresses and slept on my floor so I didn’t get lonely.’
Reminiscing about her early efforts, Naomie revealed: ‘My stepdad used to hang rugs across the living room as a fake backdrop so I could audition in front of them and they’d be the judging panel.’

Naomie recently told The Guardian that it is important to her to play strong female characters, explaining: ‘I’m not interested in playing roles that stereotype me as a woman or as a black woman.
‘I grew up with incredibly strong, powerful women around me who were highly intelligent and doing their own thing, and those are the women I’m interested in portraying because that’s what I know to be the truth.
‘A woman who waits around for a man, pines after them… I don’t have any experience of that kind of woman, so I don’t think I’d be very good at playing that kind of character.’
