|Ursula Andress started it all as Honey Rider in 1962's Dr. No, the first of the Bond films.
If the clothes make the man, the bikini makes the Bond girl. From damsels in distress to treacherous double agents, James Bond's bevy of beauties often dressed as good as they looked. Here are the 10 Bond girl outfits we'll never forget.
Jinx's bikini (Halle Berry, Die Another Day)
When Jinx emerged from the surf in her orange bikini, it was a deliberate nod to Honey Ryder's similar introduction 40 years earlier. But we still like the original best.
Honey Ryder's bikini (Ursula Andress, Dr. No)
When Honey Ryder rose out of the waves in 1962's Dr. No, the Bond girl was born. And many men couldn't take their eyes off her beautiful... seashells.
Dr. Christmas Jones' shorts (Denise Richards, The World is Not Enough)
When working in the field in Kazakhstan, nuclear physicist Christmas Jones dressed down in a tank top and shorts that wouldn't have looked out of place on Lara Croft.
Jill Masterson's gold paint (Shirley Eatton, Goldfinger)
Being asphyxiated with gold paint seems like a terrible way to go, but Jill Masterson definitely left a good-looking corpse.
Xenia Onatopp's dress (Famke Janssen, GoldenEye)
While she was a Bond villain and not a Bond girl, the psychopathic sexual predator's clingy, cleavey, high-collared dress is still wedged in our brains.
Lupe Lamora's red dress (Talisa Soto, Licence to Kill)
Timothy Dalton's outings as Bond might not be as memorable as some of his peers', but Lupe Lamora's red dress burned this movie into our memories forever.
Camille's black dress (Olga Kurylenko, Quantum of Solace)
It wasn't just Camille's black Prada dress we loved, it was the way it rode up her thigh as she hiked through the desert barefoot with Bond.
Pam Bouvier's sparkly dress (Carey Lowell, Licence to Kill)
Before she was an assistant district attorney on Law & Order, Carey Lowell cut a slim, sexy figure as Pam Bouvier in a sleeveless, sparkly dress.
Vesper Lynd's casino dress (Eva Green, Casino Royale)
During the high stakes poker game, Vesper Lynd wore a dress with a neckline that plunged even deeper than the knife she eventually drove into 007's heart.
Domino's swimsuit (Claudine Auger, Thunderball)
There was no shortage of sexy swimwear in Bond movies, but Domino's off-the-shoulder number with its revealing mesh strip remains an all-time favourite.
