After 18 months of delays and setbacks, the world premiere of No Time To Die finally took place in London on Tuesday night at the Royal Albert Hall. This is the 25th installment in the James Bond film franchise, and, after five movies, marks the last one for actor Daniel Craig as the British Secret Service agent. Many stars attended the premiere, starting from Craig and his co-stars to royal guests in the form of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. So, without further ado, here are some of our favorite looks from the long-awaited premiere:

Léa Seydoux certainly turned heads as she made a show-stopping arrival at the No Time To Die premiere. The French actress, who reprised her role as Dr. Madeleine Swann, wore a custom Louis Vuitton gown designed by Nicolas Ghesquière. The dress featured a crystal- and silver paillette-embroidered detailing, a keyhole neckline, and a chiffon cape. Seydoux completed the look with Chopard jewelry.

Per usual, Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, made an unforgettable appearance at the U.K. premiere’s red carpet. The Duchess stepped out to the red carpet wearing a dazzling Jenny Packham gold-sequined cape gown, which featured sheer panels and gold sequin detailing. Middleton wore her hair styled in an elegant updo and accessorized with matching circular gold earrings by O’nitaa. Middleton completed the look with nude Aquaruzza heels. Many believed that this look was inspired by the Duchess’ late mother-in-law, Princess Diana, who wore a shimmering silver gown with similar shaping to the 1985 premiere of another Bond flick, A View to a Kill. Middleton was joined at the premiere by her husband, Prince William, who wore a traditional black, velvet tuxedo.

How could we make a best-dressed list for the No Time To Die premiere without including Bond himself, Daniel Craig?

To complete the look, Craig sported shining black John Lobb shoes and an Omega watch.
