Bikinis, culottes and jumpsuits: Infographic shows every iconic outfit worn by Bond women

Bond Girl Outfits large.jpg

The phrase ‘Bond girl’ may be on its way out, but the fascination with the glamorous women of the slick spy franchise continues apace.

The release of Spectre has prompted a look through the fashion archives at the outfits worn by the female Bond stars over the years, from Honey Ryder's infamous white bikini in 1962's Dr. No, to Madeleine Swann's slinky pale number in the latest installment.

Big Group, the marketing agency behind the illustrated Oscars dresses in January, have produced an infographic (which you can see in full below) documenting the style changes from the 60s through to present day.


Diana Rigg in On Her Majesty's Secret Service

As one might expect from Bond, there are a lot of bikinis and several outfits designed to leave little to the imagination, but there are plenty of trousers in there too, including the sharp tuxedo-style ensemble worn by Diana Rigg as Teresa di Vincezo in 1969's On Her Majesty's Secret Service and the black jumpsuit worn by Dr Holly Goodhead (Lois Chiles) in 1979's Moonraker.

The company explains that while they couldn't include every outfit, especially when you take into consideration that characters such as Jane Seymour's Solitaire in Live and Let Die changes her clothes at least 10 times, they chose the ones most ingrained in audiences' minds by virtue of being worn a lot or during particularly memorable scenes.


Ursual Andress in Dr No

As for the changing style, Big Group muses that perhaps the Austin Powers effect came into play in more recent years, leading to dresses that make more of a statement in an effort to distance the original from the spoof.

Shame it wouldn't quite work for the Bond men. Tuxedo, tuxedo, tuxedo, pants, tuxedo, tuxedo...
