James Bond: 50 Years of 007's Leading Ladies
Considering that James Bond's leading ladies are remembered more for what they're not wearing than what they are, it may seem at odds to celebrate their style. And yet there are two reasons to do so: One, Skyfall, the latest Bond installment opens today; and two, a closer look reveals that these women were extremely well dressed. Tasteful, even. Barbara Bach's elegant white blouse (cut down to there because this is still 007 after all) with simple jewelry and dark pants looks sophisticated and actually quite modern; Michelle Yeoh covered up in all black exudes serious business without sacrificing femininity. Then again, perhaps this shouldn't be such a surprise. Bond is up against incredibly strategic and smart women. No one needs to tell them that sex appeal is as much about what's hidden as it is what's laid bare.
From Dr. No to Goldfinger to Quantum of Solace, see the slideshow below for the best Bond girl looks.
