Léa Seydoux nails understated elegance in an oversized blazer as she promotes No Time To Die

She never fails to nail understated elegance. 

And Léa Seydoux looked effortlessly chic in a black and red roll neck dress as she left her hotel to promote the new Bond film No Time To Die on Thursday. 

The actress, 35, channelled 90s power dressing as she stepped out in an oversized blazer and the matching thigh-skimming mini dress.

Léa added a pop of colour to her look with the two-tone dress that featured a red high-neck collar. 

She looked sharp as she accentuated her frame by buttoning her blazer at the waist and strode confidently in a pair of suede sling-back stilettos.

The actress kept the chill off her lithe legs in a pair of sheer black tights and completed her timeless look with a pair of spiral diamond earrings. 

Léa wore her short locks in a sideswept wet-look style and accentuated her natural beauty with a slick of pink lipstick and a sweep of bronzer across her cheeks.

In No Time To Die, Bond – played for the final time by Daniel Craig – has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help.     

The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.

Bond has two new allies in the film, in the form of agents Paloma and Nomi. A video released last week introduces fans to ‘cocky’ Nomi [Lashana Lynch] and ‘intense’ Cuban agent Paloma [Ana De Armas] ahead of the No Time To Die release.

During the final trailer for No Time To Die – which was released last month – Craig is seen coming face-to-face with captured nemesis Ernst Stavro Blofeld, played by Christoph Waltz.

It appears that the old foes may even be forced to form an uneasy alliance. ‘James, fate draws us back together. Now your enemy is my enemy,’ says Blofeld. ‘How did that happen?’

Bond replies with his trademark smirk: ‘Well, you live long enough.’

Secrecy also surrounds Léa’s character Madeleine Swann – who is Bond’s love interest, after the couple escaped together at the end of 2015’s Spectre.

Holding a mysterious folder, she warns Bond: ‘You don’t know what this is?’ – and he looks uncharacteristically nervous. 

Bond is later seen burning a note reading ‘forgive me’.

Fittingly for a production delayed by the Covid pandemic, the tone seems grim and apocalyptic. 

‘If we don’t do this,’ Bond growls at the end of the trailer, ‘there will be nothing left to save.’

Fans only have to wait until the end of this month to see if their hero – as is traditional – saves the world and gets the girl.
