    Everett Collection (4)

    Octopussy (Maud Adams)
    Spy Who Loved Her: Roger Moore, 'Octopussy' (1983)
    Bond Girl Power: The only actress to play two Fleming babes (she's also in 'Man With the Golden Gun'), she also has the only titular Bond-girl name -- i.e. it's the film title. What'd you think we meant?

    Everett Collection

    Honey Ryder, (Ursula Andress)
    Spy Who Loved Her: Sean Connery, 'Dr. No' (1962)
    Bond Girl Power: The mother of all Bond girls (not literally!) set the bar high for the women who would follow: Beautiful blonde + white bikini [+ pounding surf] = the stuff of fanboy dreams.

    Everett Collection

    Major Anya Amasova (Barbara Bach)
    Spy Who Loved Her: Roger Moore, 'The Spy Who Loved Me' (1977)
    Bond Girl Power: Bach puts the "rrr" in "international relations" as a KGB spy (code name: Agent XXX) who vows to kill Bond but then falls for him. That James, he's SUCH a diplomat.

    Everett Collection

    Domino Petachi (Kim Basinger)
    Spy Who Loved Her: Sean Connery, 'Never Say Never Again' (1983)
    Bond Girl Power: Intent on finding the location of two stolen missiles, Bond does a little heat-seeking of his own when he links up with this blonde bombshell in the Bahamas. Seems he doesn't mind she pals around with terrorists.

    Everett Collection

    Jinx (Halle Berry)
    Spy Who Loved Her: Pierce Brosnan, 'Die Another Day' (2002)
    Bond Girl Power: It takes cojones to stride out of the surf in a bikini, since Ursula Andress' famous 'Dr. No' scene. And while Halle definitely doesn't have those, her entree is spectacular nonetheless.

    MGM

    Tatiana Romanova (Daniela Bianchi)
    Spy Who Loved Her: Sean Connery, 'From Russia With Love' (1963)
    Bond Girl Power: OK, so she's a Soviet defector. Or is she? That's the beauty of Bond girls: Even if they're evil, you find out long after the lovin'.

    Everett Collection

    Pussy Galore (Honor Blackman)
    Spy Who Loved Her: Sean Connery, 'Goldfinger' (1964)
    Bond Girl Power: You can have your Sylvias and your Tiffanys -- they're no match for the power of Pussy. Even better, Goldfinger's pilot has a posse: Pussy Galore's Flying Circus. Meow!

    Everett Collection

    Melina Havelock (Carole Bouquet)
    Spy Who Loved Her: Roger Moore, 'For Your Eyes Only' (1981)
    Bond Girl Power: When 007 is sent to prevent a lost nuclear control device from falling into enemy hands, this leggy and lovely Frenchwoman falls into his. Gotta love the job perks.

    Everett Collection

    Fatima Blush (Barbara Carrera)
    Spy Who Loved Her: Sean Connery, 'Never Say Never Again' (1983)
    Bond Girl Power: First spotted playing nurse -- and later revealed as a SPECTRE agent -- this femme fatale is liable to shoot you one second, tend to your wound the next. She's enough to make even the most suave action heroes, um, blush.
