James Bond has always been strong on style and the new 007 novel by William Boyd got a very special photo launch today. In an event that included a host of lovely flight attendants, a fleet of vintage Jensen sport cars, and first editions housed in clear briefcases, copies of Solo set out from the Dorchester to points around the globe. The book will be released to us civilians on Thursday (UK) and on Oct 8th (US). I pre-ordered the UK edition and can't wait to dive into Boyd's adventure. Sadly, my copy will not be delivered by one of the attendants below. More info and images at the Ian Fleming site here

Get ready to meet MIKI ZERO, Japanese fashion model and spy!
