As a new James Bond movie opens this week, we recall some of the most iconic Bond girls that have graced the silver screen and have given us serious #lifepegs for their svelte physiques, badass personalities, and well, being the apple of agent 007’s eye.
Playing the role of James Bond’s girlfriend Syvia Trench in the first two movies (Dr. No and From Russia with Love), Eunice goes down in history as the first ever Bond girl. Although, she was originally set to play M’s assistant Miss Moneypenny. Good thing that role went to Lois Maxwell instead, who, in turn, played the role for the next 14 films.
Anyone who’s seen the 1963 Dr. No movie would probably say that the scene where Honey Ryder emerges from the waters clad in a white bikini is one of the most iconic bikini moments in movie history EVER.
Pussy Galore. The name alone makes anyone giggle. And while she’s probably the last person that comes to mind when you say “Bond girl,” we feel that Honor’s witty banters and subtle humor in Goldmember make for a memorable part in the earlier days of the Bond series.
The image of a gilded Jill Masterson lying face down on a bed goes down in history as one of the most iconic Bond film moments - often imitated, never duplicated.
Think of Jinx as the reincarnation of Honey Ryder, who, too, emerges from the waters dressed in a hot string bikini and a knife belt. Hot damn, hot damn.
Shuffling between Desperate Housewives and Lois & Clark, Teri makes her Bond girl debut as Paris Carver in 1997’s Tomorrow Never Dies.
Vesper Lynd was author Ian Flemings’s first Bond girl in the novels and it wasn’t until 2006 when she finally came to life on screen, as portrayed by Eva Green. She played opposite Daniel Craig who made his Bond debut in Casino Royale.
Contessa Teresa di Vicenzo a.k.a. Tracy Bond becomes one of the most iconic Bond girls of all time for the simple reason that she’s the only woman that Agent 007 actually loved. He even put a ring on it!
