GET THE BOND GIRL LOOK* GUEST POST

From itsy bitsy teeny weeny bikinis to showstopping dresses, half a century of Bond has given us half a century of Bond girls – and more importantly, over 50 years of stunning looks. Here’s a look back at three generations of Bond fashion with tips on how to get the look for less.

Domino - Thunderball

Few women manage to make PVC look classy, but Claudine Auger in 1965’s Thunderball managed to do just that. The former Miss France impressed directors so much that they forgot all about the fact that they wanted an Italian actress to take the part – and with her bikini body, it’s no wonder why. Domino’s iconic looks, headbands and all, epitomised the chic, feminine style of the 60s, with her sophisticated jewellery still maintaining the Bond girl image. To rock the 60s orange, head over to Boohoo.

Melina Havelock – For Your Eyes Only

Arguably the inspiration for today’s Katniss Everdeen, the arrow wielding Melina Havelock, played by Carole Bouquet in 1981’s For Your Eyes Only, gave revenge a whole new meaning. While the pins on the movie poster of this Roger Moore classic may be a little difficult for us mere mortal ladies to achieve, Melina’s army-chic inspired look is much easier. The androgynous military look is lighting up catwalks for 2014, from oversized coats to camouflage trousers, so get your hands on Melina’s khaki combat look at ASOS.

Severine - Skyfall

Fast forward to present day and you have the drool-worthy wardrobe of Severine, one of the most recent Bond girls, played by Bérénice Marlohe in Skyfall. Of course, it would be a sin not to mention the jaw-dropping Swarovski crystal-laden dress as featured in that iconic scene in which our luscious lady first meets Mr Bond, but lovely Severine has many more wonderful outfits. A simple favourite for our heroine (and perhaps memorable for other reasons, but there are no spoilers here) is her gorgeous burgundy wrap dress – get your own at Very.

Of course, Bérénice and her lovely ladies often frequented casinos while seducing our favourite double O , so if you fancy looking like Eunice Gayson in Dr No but don’t have £3,000 for a dress, why not play Mermaids Millions in your pyjamas? With big cash to be made, there’s no reason not to look and feel like a million dollars with these stylish film star looks.

  1. Over the years the nature of the women in Bond movies has changed a lot. Jinx in Die Another Day was presented to us as Bond's equal in many respects.
