The OG Bond Girl: Ursula Andress

“I don’t use my body to seduce, no. I just stand there.”

Though she generously credited her famous white bikini for making her famous in 1961’s Dr. No, everyone else knows the two reasons Ursula Andress remains the number one Bond girl are her face and her body. After that scene, Andress became one of Hollywood’s top beauties, starring alongside Frank Sinatra in 4 for Texas and with Elvis in one of his teen flicks, Fun in Acapulco.  While her aquatic exit has been copied endlessly for fifty years—including by Halle Berry in Die Another Day—there’s only one woman we would be excited to have come at us with an abalone knife.
