The Best of the Bond Girls: From Casino Royale to Spectre

Via

Daniel Craig will be transforming into his suited-up secret agent alter ego for the fourth time in the upcoming James Bond installment, Spectre. But where would James Bond be without his girls? The new movie will include three Bond girls — Naomie Harris (returning from Skyfall), Léa Seydoux, and Monica Bellucci. The actresses have big shoes to fill with iconic women starring as Bond girls before them.

The very first Bond girl, Linda Christian, played Valerie Mathis in the 1954 TV adaptation of Casino Royale before James Bond films hit the big screen. There have been countless Bond girls over the years, from Pussy Galore to Mary Goodnight to Strawberry Fields, and the most iconic 007 femme fatale would probably be bikini-clad Ursula Andress, who played Honey Ryder in the first James Bond film, Dr. No, in 1962. See the bodacious ladies who”ve wielded guns, showed off their assets, and bedded Bond for the last 50-plus years!
