Naomie Harris is a Bad Ass!

javier-bardem-in-skyfall

One of this Holiday’s biggest movie attractions to come to theaters is the 23rd installment of the James Bond 007 spy series “Skyfall“, and it’s not just Sam Mendes’ peroxide prescription for the film’s “colourless” villain, played by Javier Bardem, that has people citing the latest installment of the series as revolutionary in the history of the franchise, but rather one of the film’s dazzling dangerous leading ladies.

Naomie Harris Gilded Gold in Skyfall

The subject in question is 36 year old English actress, Naomie Harris, who comes to play in the film as Eve Moneypenny, a fellow M16 agent who works closely with Bond. On the surface of it all, she seems to join the ranks of dozens of beautiful actresses who have teamed up alongside 007 in one extraordinary mission after another. The coveted ‘Bond Girl’ title will always look good on a resume.

A

But, Naomie Harris isn’t just your everyday beautiful actress. Time and time again she has exchanged the female stereotype, and impressed not only with her timeless looks, but more so her undeniable edge. Always willing to stand her grounds, at a casting with Michael Mann she is known for showing who is boss with just a look in her eye.

‘He called me for a meeting in his office and he was sort of embarrassed. He just said, “So how do you feel about this nudity thing?” And I said…’ she drops her voice to a low, menacing tone, ‘“Well, I don’t really want to do it, Michael.”’ She sounds terrifying. ‘And he went, “Yeah. OK.”’ I bet he did.

Naomie has also always made room on her plate for faster, feistier, and darker characters. One of her earlier film roles really stands out as a loud and proud display of this quality she brings to the screen is in Danny Boyle’s art-house zombie flick “28 Days Later“.

Naomie Harris Goes Psycho (28 Days Later)

Naomie Harris - Beautifully Bad

As Selena, Naomie tears up the screen with a will for survival matched only by her true grit in getting through post-apocalyptic England with her body and soul intact. This was one of the first, but certainly not the last strong atypical female characters she would conquer on her quest.

Naomie Harris Cuts Like a Knife in 28 Days Later

“She Will Cut You! “

Indeed, she also made an impression as Tia Dalma, Goddess of Calypso in the “Pirates of the Carribean” franchise. She is almost indistinguishable as herself in the film’s fierce makeup, and once again brings her magic to the screen.

Both elusive and dangerous, Harris brings the seductive powers needed to play the ocean goddess and matches it with her viscious voodoo edge. Not your everyday siren of the sea . . .

Throughout her career, Naomie has displayed her will to be something more than your everyday goddess of the screen. From “Pirates of the Carribean”, to “28 Days Later”, Naomie has shown off her ability to play the strong woman, and in “Skyfall“, this inherent quality comes to a head in a move that is completely revolutionary to the history of the franchise.

Naomie Harris is Dangerous Luxury

For the first time in 50 years, 007 is accompanied by not a Bond Girl, but a ‘Bond Woman’.

It’s official. Publicity materials refer to Harris as the ‘Bond Woman’, which is in itself pretty bad ass, indeed. The franchise’s long time producer, Barbara Broccoli, supports the changes:

“‘It’s outdated,’ she says. It’s been a long time since Bond girls wiggled around in barely there outfits sighing, ‘Oh, James!’ every five minutes. And Eve is another significant evolution away from that. She’s a field agent taking the same risks and making the same sacrifices as 007.”

{Source: The Telegraph}

Naomie had hinted at the change at a BAFTA Awards ceremony where she commented on a statement of her as the newest ‘Bond Girl’ , stating “Well, I’m going to change that to Bond woman.”’

Seems like Naomie Harris gets it done. Whether it’s fighting pirates, zombies, or giving 007 a much needed hand, Naomie Harris embraces the evolution of popular culture, and where she fits in as a strong, intelligent, bad ass woman. (read more here)

So always remember to bring that edge!

A Rebel By Any Other Name Would Still Be As Sweet…


At THE EYE OF FAITH, we are always looking to reinvent the classics.  Looking to the past for our inspiration, we sought refuge in classic rebel gear.   We bring you a page from our LOOKBOOK to demonstrate our take on a classic.

James Dean’s iconic red jacket, jeans, and t-shirt combo was our immediate go-to, and we decided to give it a bit of an E.O.F. spin to bring it back to life for today.


We found this sick rebel red Member’s Only windbreaker which we aptly named “James” for the collection, and paired it with an +E.O.F. ORIGINAL+ design which many of our peers have noted looked uncannily like a view of the ocean seen from outer space- thus “Mystical Ocean Mystery” became its title! Cosmic ocean rebel, indeed!


A simple pair of vintage pleated trousers in royal blue brings it back to that classic 1950s all-American vibe we were drawing from in the first place.

And our look wouldn’t be complete without our Grateful Dead Converse kicks.  A cool tie-dye limited edition shoe to take that classic 1950s feel and make it ‘now’!


Definitely think we made a splash here! Really love the combination, and how easily an old classic can be completely redefined to fit in to today’s world, and no doubt, tomorrow’s as well!

It’s all about the spirit you bring to it, and we’re coming full force with number one original rebel attitude!

Rebel Yell with a Touch of Evil: Miharayasuhiro Men S/S13

We are moved by the beautiful designs coming from Miharayasuhiro. Inspired by David Lynch’s “Wild at Heart” and the python jacket Nicolas Cage wore in the film, Mihara Yasuhiro’s appealingly offbeat collection is having the fashion crowd singing praises. And here @TheEyeOfFaith, we are feeling this!

Rockabilly Preppy Goth dudes splashed in paint, some head to toe, made for a truly easy-chic vibe with an edge normally seen with Links and Chains in Nashville. We saw Hairdo’s that have got us combing our hair differently. We love love love the collection overall. Lots of variety with some stark-hard subtly.

We bring you a series of backstage shots by Dirk Alexander from Models.com.  We can envision ourselves sliding into any one of these looks.  Cool simple colour story, lots of beige and white’s mixed with leather’s and black mesh.  A James Dean Rebel red Members Only jacket sets the tone for the whole collection.  We are feeling a Fight Club feel for 2013 with the forever stylish Python.  This is a collection that for SURE stands out this season.
