A look back at all the lovely allies and femme fatales who’ve crossed paths with 007 over the years.

Ursula Andress as Honey Ryder, “Dr. No” (1962)

Widely regarded as the first Bond Girl, Honey Ryder’s emergence from the ocean clad in a white bikini is considered one of the most iconic moments in 007 franchise history.

Eunice Gayson as Sylvia Trench, “Dr. No” (1962) & “From Russia With Love” (1963)

Sylvia Trench introduced herself to James Bond as “Trench, Sylvia Trench,” which inspired him to reply with his now iconic “Bond, James Bond” phrase. She’s also the first Bond Girl to appear in more than one film.

Daniela Bianchi as Tatiana Romanova, “From Russia With Love” (1963)

Tasked with seducing and killing James Bond, Tatiana falls for the British spy instead, ultimately teaming up with him to take down the deadly Rosa Klebb.

Honor Blackman as Pussy Galore, “Goldfinger” (1964)

Perhaps the most suggestively named Bond Girl of all time, Pussy Galore led a crew of all-female pilots, and originated in Ian Fleming’s novels.

Shirley Eaton as Jill Masterson, “Goldfinger” (1964)

Poor Jill Masterson made her biggest impression posthumously, forever remembered for being painted gold from head to toe by the villainous Goldfinger.

Claudine Auger as Domino Derval, “Thunderball” (1965)

Another bad-girl-turned-good, Bond encountered his enemy’s girlfriend, Domino Derval, underwater, and persuaded her to turn on her man, Emilio Largo.

Diana Rigg as Teresa di Vicenzo, “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service” (1969)

The only woman who ever became Mrs. James Bond, Teresa di Vicenzo became Tracy Bond before being murdered by Ernst Stavro Blofeld, one of Bond’s most famous nemeses.

Jane Seymour as Solitaire, “Live and Let Die” (1973)

A psychic who would lose her powers if she ever made love to a man, Solitaire inevitably proved unable to resist James Bond and indeed lost her gift as a result.

Maud Adams as Octopussy, “Octopussy” (1983)

The only Bond Girl to be named for the title of the film she appears in, Octopussy ran an all-female floating island and jewelry smuggling ring and helped Bond kill her former partner after he turned on her.

Grace Jones as May Day, “A View To Kill” (1985)

A deadly assassin who at first tried to kill James Bond, she eventually turns good, ultimately meeting her death while working with the spy to try and dismantle a bomb.

Michelle Yeoh as Wai Lin, “Tomorrow Never Dies” (1997)

A Chinese secret agent working alongside Bond to investigate media mogul Elliot Carver, Wai Lin proved smarter and a better fighter than the British spy on several occasions.

Halle Berry as Jinx, “Die Another Day” (2002)

Jinx’s most memorable moment is an homage to original Bond Girl Honey Ryder’s rise from the sea, clad in a bikini (orange this time), with a knife at her hip.
