James Bond Wears Drag For International Women’s Day

|

Unfortunately, David Craig wearing drag for International Women’s Day isn’t an ad for The Best James Bond Film Ever Made. What would that movie be called anyway? The Lady Spy Who Loved Me? The Living Highlights? Live And Let Diane? In reality it’s a promo for EQUALS, a group of organizations supporting International Women’s Day on March 8. “For someone with such a fondness for women, I wonder if you’ve ever considered what it’s like to be one,” Judi Dench playing M intones, after reciting a devastating list of inequalities between the sexes. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo star proceeds to saunter out in a wrap dress and sensible heels, and let’s be honest. He has an enviable figure.

Wigs off to Craig for being man enough to wear fake bosoms, but we’re not exactly sure where the Bond part comes in. Is it James Bond or Daniel Craig supporting women? What does it mean that he pulls off his hair and becomes a man again at the end? Where did he buy those earrings? “Are we equals?,” Dench asks as Craig walks solemnly away. Whether he’s 007 or just an actor with fantastic calves, we have to say, it’s nice to see that Daniel Craig says yes.
