The Look of Love | Ursula Andress in Casino Royale

We recently watched the film Casino Royale and couldn’t believe the amount of feathers that were used in the costume designs. From Natural White Coque Tails to luxurious Ostrich Floss and Boas; Ursula Andress as Vesper Lynd embodies the Look of Love in the ultimate spy spoof of all time; Casino Royale 1967 .

CasinoRoyaleCollageHere are some of our favorite movie stills featuring the stylish Vesper Lynd in her feathered best. We especially love the Ostrich Floss Feathered turban and Natural White Coque Tail Feather caplet she wears.

Kate Bosworth attends the "Schiaparelli And Prada: Impossible Conversations" Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 7, 2012 in New York City.

Purple feathers were all the rage yesterday at The Met Gala in New York City! Check out these feathered leading ladies and tell us which one you think wore her feathers best! I have to say that while Beyonce looked spectacular in her black and purple ostrich trimmed gown by Givenchy and Diane Kruger in a regal ostrich trimmed gown by Prada, my vote goes to Kate Bosworth’s cocktail mini also by  Prada who’s feathers were actually a mix of burgundy and navy plumes! Flirty, yet sophisticated!

Ostrich Feathers in Bridal Decor and Accessories

Fancy and Luxurious, Ostrich plumes are the ultimate in feather trimmings! You can change the entire look of anything with just one plume. From adorning flapper headbands or embellishing your bridal bouquet and accessories, the possibilities are endless. Very popular in the special event industry, large ostrich plumes are a staple item for making table centerpieces, opulent feather palm trees and adding romantic details to bridal decor. They are also spectacular when making showgirl headdresses, costumes and large feather fans. Available  by the dozen or by the pound in a variety of styles  (drabs, femina, spads, nandus and floss) and colors… And like our Feather Girls in New York City say’s nude colors like blush and ivory are in! You can use our handmade  Ostrich Fringe with bias tape sewn across the top which makes it easy to work with… our  1 ply ostrich fringe comes in some great new shades like Beige, Champagne, Oatmeal and Sand and our 2 ply ostrich boas come in Cinnamon, Ivory, Natural and many more colors.
