Bond girl fashion

Posted on

From bikini babes to femmes fatales, the ladies who loved — or loved to hate — 007 have always dressed to impress. Here’s a look at four decades of fashion-forward Bond girls.

1962
Honey Ryder, Dr. No — Being a Bond girl is no walk on the beach, but Rider (Ursula Andress) made it look easy in her skimpy suit.

1964
Jill Masterson, Goldfinger — Death by gilding gave the seductive Masterson (Shirley Eaton) eternal life as a Bond icon.

1983
Domino Petachi, Never Say Never Again — Kim Basinger’s deadly glamour-puss was no victim — fashion or otherwise.

1985
May Day, A View to a Kill — Disco queen Grace Jones flexed her gender-bending sex appeal in Bond’s 14th big-screen adventure.

1995
Xenia Onatopp, GoldenEye — Onatopp (Famke Janssen) killed men with her legs. But her gaudy Soviet style was just as lethal.

1997
Wai Lin, Tomorrow Never Dies — Michelle Yeoh’s spy fought bad guys in a sleek leather catsuit. We’d like to see 007 try that.

2002
Jinx, Die Another Day — Halle Berry’s two-piece Dr. No homage was one of the new millennium’s first great bikini moments.

2008
Strawberry Fields, Quantum of Solace — As Bond’s latest conquest, Gemma Arterton mixes modern chic with a retro coif.
