Double Oh-My: The 25 Best Bond Babes

James Bond has had many faces: Connery; Lazenby; Moore; Dalton; Brosnan; Craig; Woody Allen (well that was Jimmy Bond, but close enough). No matter which Bond you may have struck a bro-mance with, there has always been one continuous element in bond films that all men anxiously awaited the next film for: Bond women.

Such a collection of women cannot be held to a mere Top 10, or even 20, list, so we present you more Bond women then you could rake a moon at.

Honey Ryder, Dr. No: "Are you looking for shells, too?"

The world of Ian Fleming's James Bond was realized the moment Ursula Andress, aka Honey Ryder, rose out of the sea in bikini-clad goodness. With beauty that matched her blood-lust for revenge, Honey Ryder began the standard of Bond girls being more than eye candy.
Honey Ryder, Dr. No: "Are you looking for shells, too?"
Miss Moneypenny, Dr. No: "Flattery will get you nowhere - but don't stop trying."

Behind every good man is a good woman. In Miss Moneypenny's case, beauty is also added to the equation. While there have been six official James Bonds, actresses portraying Miss Moneypenny have had a longer shelf life. With a trio of titillation that includes Lois Maxwell, Caroline Bliss, and Samantha Bond, it stands to reason that the loudest criticism of the Daniel Craig films is that Miss Moneypenny is missing.
Miss Moneypenny, Dr. No: "Flattery will get you nowhere - but don't stop trying."
Tatiana Romanova, From Russia With Love: "James, behave yourself. We are being filmed."

Every good spy movie needs a beautiful, blonde Russian woman. Luckily, the former Miss Rome and Miss Universe, Daniela Bianchi, more than fit this necessity as the Russian double-agent, Tanya Romanova.
Tatiana Romanova, From Russia With Love: "James, behave yourself. We are being filmed."
P***y Galore, Goldfinger: "You like a close shave, don't you?"

While her character almost became "Kitty" Galore, Honor Blackman was able to meld her wit, beauty, and flying skills to prove that her character could get past one of the most risque double entendres to grace a Bond film.
P***y Galore, Goldfinger: "You like a close shave, don't you?"
Fiona Volpe, Thunderball: "Since you're here, would you mind giving me something to put on?"

Not all Bond girls are at Her Majesty's service. Fiona Volpe, played by Lucianna Palluzi, proved that the art of seduction can be used on both sides. Unfortunately for Fiona, Bond's dancing skills were much better than her own.
Fiona Volpe, Thunderball: "Since you're here, would you mind giving me something to put on?"
Kissy Suzuki, You Only Live Twice: "No honeymoon. This is business."

For Japanese secret agent Kissy Suzuki (played by Mie Hama), her marriage to Bond was business as usual. Luckily, that business relationship only lasted until SPECTRE was stopped, which left lots of time for a traditional honeymoon on a life raft.
Kissy Suzuki, You Only Live Twice: "No honeymoon. This is business."
Vesper Lynd, Casino Royale (1967): "If I wore it in the street, people might stare."

Just because the Casino Royale from 1967 was a parody doesn't mean it couldn't have a load of beautiful women, even if the point was that this version of James Bond is impervious to seduction. Ursula Andress returned as Vesper Lynd, but this time as a secret agent with more money than the queen of England.
Vesper Lynd, Casino Royale (1967): "If I wore it in the street, people might stare."
Tiffany Case, Diamonds Are Forever: "I don't dress for the hired help."

While money may be the most important thing on her mind, Tiffany Case (played by Jill St. John) stroked the imaginations of men worldwide when she introduced herself to a complete stranger in her Sunday morning best.
Tiffany Case, Diamonds Are Forever: "I don't dress for the hired help."
Solitaire, Live And Let Die: "Is there time before we leave, for Lesson number 3?"

Only James Bond can stretch the moral compass that resides in an oracle. That's just what he did when he taught Solitaire (played by Jane Seymour) a few lessons in reading her future in bedroom manners.
Solitaire, Live And Let Die: "Is there time before we leave, for Lesson number 3?"
Mary Goodnight, The Man with the Golden Gun: "Standard uniform for Southeast Asia. The buttons are down the back."
photo credit: Eon Productions
Unfortunately, not all beauty comes with brains, as was apparent in secret agent Mary Goodnight (played by Britt Ekland). While her bumbling maybe have provided a bit more comic relief than a Bond film can handle, her body was enough to cement her standing as one of the beauties of Bond.
Mary Goodnight, The Man with the Golden Gun: "Standard uniform for Southeast Asia. The buttons are down the back."
Major Anya Amasova, The Spy Who Loved Me: "When necessary, shared bodily warmth."
photo credit: Eon Productions
Sometimes it takes a while for Bond's charms to fully seduce a woman. This was the case with Agent Triple X, Major Anya Amasova (played by Barbara Bach) whose pledge to kill the man who killed her former Russian lover dissipated as quickly as her clothing.
Major Anya Amasova, The Spy Who Loved Me: "When necessary, shared bodily warmth."
Dr. Holly Goodhead, Moonraker: "Take me 'round the world one more time."

Even when speaking about Bond girls, the terms "NASA astronaut," "CIA agent," and "astrophysicist" rarely come together. Luckily, Dr. Holly Goodhead (played by Lois Chiles) made sure those terms became sexy, particularly during a Zero-Gravity romp with Bond.
Dr. Holly Goodhead, Moonraker: "Take me 'round the world one more time."
Melina Havelock, For Your Eyes Only: "For your eyes only, darling."

A woman's vengeance may be scary, but nobody pulled it off better than the half-Greek goddess Melina Havelock (played by Carole Bouquet). Brains, beauty, and a crossbow? What more does a man need in a woman?
Melina Havelock, For Your Eyes Only: "For your eyes only, darling."
Bibi Dahl, For Your Eyes Only: "That's a laugh. Everybody knows it builds up muscle tone."
photo credit: Eon Productions
Figure skaters have always been at the top of beautiful female athletes. While allegedly a bit too young by Bond's standards, Bibi Dahl (played by actual figure skater Lynn-Holly Johnson) helped men worldwide take an interest in female figure-skating.
Bibi Dahl, For Your Eyes Only: "That's a laugh. Everybody knows it builds up muscle tone."
Octopussy, Octopussy: "I wish you weren't in such a weakened condition."
photo credit: Eon Productions
On an island inhabited by only women, the matriarch would most likely be the most beautiful and diabolical of the bunch. This was indeed the case with Octopussy (played by Maud Adams), who allowed Bond into her residence in order for the film's audience to fantasize about such an Amazonian haven.
Octopussy, Octopussy: "I wish you weren't in such a weakened condition."
Magda, Octopussy: "I need refilling."
photo credit: Eon Productions
While Octopussy is the usual choice of a fan's favorite Bond girl, Magda (played by Kristina Wayborn) deserves an honorable mention. With a style of using acrobatics to undress, Magda cemented her place as the next in line for Octopussy's island.
Magda, Octopussy: "I need refilling."
Domino Petachi, Never Say Never Again: "What do you want me to do?"

Never Say Never Again is usually labeled as a reason to get Sean Connery back into the Bond series. This is unfair, as the real reason seemed to be having Domino Petachi (as played by Kim Basinger) dress up in a see-through leotard.
Domino Petachi, Never Say Never Again: "What do you want me to do?"
Xenia Onatopp, Goldeneye: "This time, Mr. Bond, the pleasure will be all mine."
photo credit: Eon Productions
Most men would say that, if they had to go out, they'd want to go out while in bed with a woman. Xenia Onatopp (played by Famke Janssen) gave plenty of men that wish with thighs that won't quit...until your abdomen is crushed and your lungs collapse.
Xenia Onatopp, Goldeneye: "This time, Mr. Bond, the pleasure will be all mine."
Christmas Jones, The World Is Not Enough: "Is it about time to unwrap your present?"
photo credit: Eon Productions
Denise Richards as a nuclear physicist? Yeah, that happened. Richards was given the highest honor short of making out with Neve Campbell when she became the latest beauty and the brain in the Bond girl lineage as Christmas Jones.
Christmas Jones, The World Is Not Enough: "Is it about time to unwrap your present?"
Elektra King, The World Is Not Enough: "You don't take 'no' for an answer, do you?"
photo credit: Eon Productions
Elektra King (played by Sophie Marceau) is many things: rich; beautiful; revenge-driven; driven by Stockholm Syndrome. Luckily, those eyes make all the bad in her much easier to accept.
Elektra King, The World Is Not Enough: "You don't take 'no' for an answer, do you?"
Jinx, Die Another Day: "Wait, don't pull it out. I'm not finished with it yet."
photo credit: Eon Productions
You know what's great about Halle Berry? Everything. The one thing she didn't have, however, was the honor of being a Bond girl. That all changed when she emerged from the sea as the second coming of Honey Ryder as Jinx, with a lot more firepower as one of few bright spots in "Die Another Day."
Jinx, Die Another Day: "Wait, don't pull it out. I'm not finished with it yet."
Miranda Frost, Die Another Day: "I know all about you - sex for dinner, death for breakfast."
photo credit: Eon Productions
While watching Die Another Day, it's impossible to not be rooting for Bond to finally bed down the ice queen Miranda Frost (played by Rosamund Pike). Even after she unloads Bond's gun while he isn't looking, it's hard to root against this beauty whether she's in a fencing suit, dress, or blankets.
Miranda Frost, Die Another Day: "I know all about you - sex for dinner, death for breakfast."
Vesper Lynd (again), Casino Royale (2006): "As charming as you are, Mr. Bond, I will be keeping my eye on our government's money - and off your perfectly-formed arse."
photo credit: Eon Productions
Vesper Lynd (played by Eva Green) had the ability to turn every single head in the room. No wonder she was the reason Daniel Craig went on a rampage that no Bond has ever indulged before.
Vesper Lynd (again), Casino Royale (2006): "As charming as you are, Mr. Bond, I will be keeping my eye on our government's money - and off your perfectly-formed arse."
Camille Montes, Quantum of Solace: "There is something horribly efficient about you."
photo credit: Eon Productions
While Camille Montes (played by Olga Kurylenko) may bear brutal scars, they're no match for the ones on the inside. Never underestimates a man's desire to console and protect. Chivalry is clearly not dead.
Camille Montes, Quantum of Solace: "There is something horribly efficient about you."
