From Ursula Andress to Denise Richards, Bond girls have always been every man’s fantasy and cinema’s biggest advocate in preserving sexist stereotypes. Whether they are evil, kind or mysterious, Bond girls have been always the most beautiful women in the cinema world. And while there’s nothing wrong with being pretty, the women in the Bond series always seem to be coming and going for the British agent, who has had more than 50 female companions on screen, as apart from glamour and sex appeal what these girls have in common is their intense passion for “Her Majesty’s” secret agent.

Take a look at some of the most fierce and elegant Bond girls then and now!
