“No Mr Bond, I expect you to die!” – analysing the relationship between Daniel Craig’s hair colour and the suits he wears as Bond
In his private life Craig rarely wears a suit, preferring smart, fitted casualwear. That is not to say, however, that he doesn’t wear suits extremely often: he’s had enough red carpet strolls and Bond junkets to last a lifetime, which is probably why it looks like he’ll be hanging up his Walther PPK after Spectre.
Whether he’s comfortable in suits or not, his stylist certainly has great taste… and insight. His suits both on screen and off are classically simple: two buttons with notch lapels – in plain, simple colours. Analysing the suits over the years, however, an interesting pattern emerges regarding their colour pallete.
In the 9 years since he began playing the role, Craig’s suits have changed from predominantly blue to predominantly grey. This is because his hair colour has gone from blond to silver, and someone behind the scenes has made sure that his hair and skin tone matches the suits he wears.
Here’s the evidence:
Blue suit, blue shirt
This is the suit Bond wears for most of Skyfall. Is it blue? Is it grey? Is it deliberately ambiguous…?
Tonal greys and notably silver hair
Grey suit, with blue shirt and tie (to compliment his eyes)
