Actress Penélope works an up-do at the James Bond aftershow party

Penélope Cruz shone as she accompanied her husband Javier Bardem to the aftershow party at Tate Modern for the London premiere of new James Bond film Skyfall.

Penélope wore a stunning floor-length L’Wren Scott sequined dress accessorised simply with an Emilio Pucci clutch and gold sandals.

Her high, sleek ponytail looked perfect with the stunning dress and kept her look super-sophisticated.

Here’s how to do it at home…

• Make sure your hair is blow-dried straight and pull it all to the crown of your head, securing into place with a hairband.

• Take a small piece of hair from the ponytail and wrap it around the hairband, fastening with a couple of Kirby grips.

• Brush the ponytail through and smooth any kinks with a pair of straightening irons.

• Finish with a slick of L’Oréal Hair Expertise EverSleek Smoothing Anti-Frizz Serum, £7.99.
