The high-necked dress cinched in at her slender waist before flowing into a chic mid-length skirt.

Teasing a glimpse of her lean legs, the dress featured a soaring split, with the look completed with white slingbacks. 

Her raven bob was styled in loose waves parted on the side while her pretty features were enhanced with a radiant palette of make-up. 

Phoebe is hard at work scripting the much-anticipated Bond 25, which is set for release on 3 April 2020.

She is also known for writing the first season of worldwide phenomenon Killing Eve and creating hit show Fleabag.  

Since the second series of Killing Eve began to air in the UK earlier last month, it has earned a mixed reception from die-hard fans.

After watching the first episode of series two, viewers took to Twitter in their droves saying the crime thriller was ‘missing the magic’ of Phoebe, who passed over writing duties to Emerald Fennell. 

A free copy of the explosive book, Killing Eve: Codename Villanelle, will be available with Saturday’s Daily Mail and can be picked up at WHSmith. 

The star joined Spice Girl Geri Horner and husband Christian in the Royal Box on Centre Court. 

Geri, 46, looked effortlessly chic in a white midi dress with a black belt while Christian dazzled in a grey pinstripe suit and electric blue tie.

Huge crowds were waved into the All England Club in sun-soaked south-west London with almost 500,000 people expected over the coming fortnight with armed police brought in to keep them safe.   

Security guards walked the spectators past the famous ivy-covered Centre Court with Djokovic beginning the defence of his men’s singles title there from 1pm.

Thousands slept outside The All England Tennis Club overnight having pitched up over the past two days hoping to get tickets for Wimbledon, which began in 1877 and is considered the most important sporting event of the British summer along with the first Test Match at Lord’s each year.   

And many claim that queuing for tickets is ‘as much a part of the Wimbledon experience as the tennis itself’.
