    While specific details from the sale are still pending, Scotland on Sunday reports that the dress was expected to fetch up to £4,000 at the sale.

    Kurylenko wore the Prada dress towards the latter half of the film. A popular image featured her alongside Daniel Craig’s James Bond while walking in the desert. The actresses Gina shoes were also included in the sale.

    The Bond girl dress, donated by producer Barbara Broccoli, was just one of many items included at the charity event held at Edinburgh’s Sheraton Grand Hotel. Proceeds raised will go towards Scottish children’s epilepsy charity Muir Maxwell Trust, which is aiming towards raising £10 million to launch Britain’s first paediatric epilepsy assessment service and care centre.

    Freelance stylist Lindsay Campbell said that while a Prada dress and Gina shoes would retail at a total of around £1000 it could fetch up to four times that at auction. She added: ‘Kurylenko has graced the covers of many magazines and this will make the dress a coveted piece. It is timeless and classic.’
