Psychic Energy2 of 11
Jane Seymour brought a bohemian vibe to her role as Solitaire, virgin tarot-card-reading vixen, in Live and Let Die (1973). With her long, straight hair and flowy outfits, Solitaire had an otherworldly sensuality.
Cover Up3 of 11
As the first American Bond girl, in Diamonds Are Forever (1972), Jill St. John's Tiffany (so named because she was born at Tiffany & Co.) was a sweetly seductive diamond smuggler. When told to put something on over her bikini, Tiffany covered up in a two-tone long-sleeve top that highlighted her narrow waist.
One-Two Punch4 of 11
Wearing a cute bra-let bikini, unknown Japanese actress Mie Hama made her American debut as spy and ninja Kissy Suzuki in You Only Live Twice (1967).
That's Rich5 of 11
While most Bond girls were famous for their sultry gowns and sexy swimsuits, Maud Adams is best remembered for wearing a white silk robe in Octopussy (1983). As the title character, Adams embodied the image of a 1980s power woman in her boudoir.
Strong Arm6 of 11
Before prosecuting criminals as an assistant district attorney on Law & Order, Carey Lowell fought them as Pam Bouvier in License to Kill (1989). Just as formidable in a shimmering halter dress as she would later be in power suits, Lowell, with her cropped locks and toned arms, added an athletic dimension to the Bond girl look.
Hear Her Roar7 of 11
In Never Say Never Again (1983) Kim Basinger's Domino Petachi sheds her regal white gowns and pearl chokers when she takes up with Bond. The tiger one-piece worn toward the end of the film brought out the character's wild side.
Tough Enough8 of 11
Jamaican-born model and actress Grace Jones started her career as a muse to Andy Warhol, who loved her severe, androgynous look. In A View to a Kill (1985), Jones' Bond girl May Day helped popularize the star's signature hooded look.
Stealing His Heart9 of 11
As the Russian KGB agent Anya Amasova, actress Barbara Bach arguably wore the most notable Bond-girl evening dress in The Spy Who Loved Me (1977). Long, black and lined along the straps and neckline with diamonds, the slinky getup helped the Soviet spy easily woo Bond, James Bond.
Making Waves10 of 11
Despite the many looks that have followed, the skimpy white bikini worn by Ursula Andress (as Honey Rider in Dr. No, 1962) remains the second-most-iconic style moment in Bond history.
Tangerine Dream11 of 11
Thirty years after Ursula Andress, Halle Berry's Jinx Johnson resurrected the belt-and-bikini look in Die Another Day (2002). The string bikini and bold orange color made it even more attention-getting than the original.
