1. White bikini

Perhaps the single most famous Bond girl outfit of all was the famous two-piece white bikini worn by Ursula Andress in one of the first Bond movies – Dr No (1962). The reason she was wearing it was because she encountered Bond (Sean Connery) while out swimming, but what many people don’t know is that Andress helped with the design of it, or that it went on sale for £35,000 in 2001.

2. Long black gown

Barbara Bach played a Russian spy in 1977’s The Spy Who Loved Me, Barbara Bach wore a marvellous floor-length black evening gown with diamond lining during much of the film. This provided a classy, grown-up look for a character that was less ditsy than some of the earlier Bond girls from the Roger Moore era, and went well with Bond’s tuxedo.

3. Purple evening gown

That was probably the finest evening gown worn by a Bond girl until the stunning one Vesper Lynd wore during the casino sequences in Casino Royale (2006). Bond wanted her entrance to serve as a distraction to the other gamblers and the form fitting purple backless dress designed by Roberto Cavalli that she wears certainly achieves that aim. It provides a show-stopping moment to match Bond’s blue trunks earlier in the film.

4. Red flowing dress

Another distinctive Bond girl outfit was the floaty red dress worn by Jane Seymour in the 1973 film Live and Let Die. Her character, called Solitaire, was a tarot card reader and virgin and this outfit combined innocence with a bohemian vibe that marked here out as very different from previous Bond girls.

5. Lace dress

The lace dress that Sophie Marceau wore as Elektra King in 1999s The World Is Not Enough was perfect for her role as an oil heiress with a habit of suffocating men to death between her thighs during lovemaking! The dress in question was revealing but also seemingly innocent rather than vampish, ensuring her each of her victims would be taken by surprise.

James Bond, as well as the various Bond girls, has remained a cinematic style icon for close to half a century now – and he shows no signs of slowing down.
