6. Grace Jones as May Day in A View To A Kill (1985)
Grace Jones in A View to Kill was an entirely different type of Bond girl. She played the character may Day, a tough and unforgettable girlfriend to villlain Max Zorin. Her fashion was just as unique – over-the-knee boots and leather jackets, all enviable stuff. And she made hoodies very trendy!
7. Carey Lowell as Pam Bouiver in License to Kill (1989)
8. Halle Berry in Jinx Johnson in Die Another Day (2002)
Undercover NSA operative Giacinta ‘Jinx’ Johnson played by Halle Berry was a real show-stopper in Die Another Day. Her style is so unforgettable, as is her makeup look that made Revlon to launch a collection inspired by her look after the film’s release. Her most memorable look from the movie is undoubtedly the orange belted bikini, a tribute to the first Bond girl, Ursula Andress, which ended up becoming even more iconic than the original one itself! Plus: check out that perfect bod!
9. Eva Green as Vesper Lynd in Casino Royale (2006)
Eva Green’s Vesper is many’s favorite Bond girl, and it’s not hard to see why. She was charming and dangerous, full of glamour and also betrayal. Her look in this black floor-sweeping gown is my favorite from the movie, and with the plunging neckline worn with a long gold-knotted necklace and sexy smokey eyes, she looks like the perfect seductress.
10. Bérénice Marlohe as Sévérine in Skyfall (2012)
French actress Bérénice Marlohe played anti-heroine Bond girl Sévérine in the twenty-third James Bond film Skyfall. Her black dress from the movie combines sheer and cut-outs with silk, and thousands of Swarovski crystals (60,000 to be precise). Plus, check out that vamp makeup and those long killer nails.
And of course, while we wait to see the latest Bond Girl Monica Bellucci’s style in the upcoming movie, Spectre, here are the teasers!
