It’s been clear since Ursula Andres, alias “Honey Rider,” strolled out of the waves in a white bikini in 1962 for the very first Bond film, Dr. No: 007 women pack an extra punch. They emit a stunning aura, and their singular look has quietly emancipated itself so that the Bond women are now so much more than just a pretty accessory to an action scene. Clever, strong and direct – real Bond girls aren’t just pure and perfect, but rather the perfect blend of innocence and danger. Watch out – because now that dangerously sexy style can be yours, too!
Be a Bond Girl – 10 Tips:
1. Brave, cool, classy: Bond girls have the attitude of a worldly woman who’s traveled far and knows how to stand on her own two feet.
2. The fitness factor: Not thin, just strong. It’s not about how much you weigh. More of an emphasis is placed on the fit curves achieved through yoga or kickboxing.
3. A healthy balance: The Femme Fatale à la Bond should always stay in touch with her natural side. The credo: glamorous, but unpretentious.
4. Super-woman: Do not hesitate to play up your attractiveness to the fullest. Emphasize facial features with makeup. The idea here is fashionable luxury.
5. Bombshell hair: Whether blonde like Britt Ekland, brunette like Olga Kurylenko or red like Gemma Arterton, whether long locks or a short bob – volume is the key to happiness.
6. Under control: A facial peel for fresh skin, concealer to hide under-eye shadows, a bit of foundation for flawless skin tone plus bronzer to accentuate cheekbones.
7. Goldeneye: Devilishly wicked, smoky eyes with fine gold nuances shimmer in the night. A must: extra volume mascara.
8. Kissable Pout: To get a seductive evening look, first powder your lips, then line them into your desired shape. Use a liner the same color or lighter than your lipstick color. Fill in lips with a nude lip color for understatement or bright red to make a killer argument.
9. Luxury everything: At the beach, Bond girls wear sexy bikinis or cut-out bathing suits. On the red carpet, tight, flared mermaid gowns are absolute essentials. Favorite: the little black dress, of course.
10. Final touches: Stiletto heels add height and attitude in every sense. A sultry perfume with lively citrus and warm vanilla notes is always unforgettable.
