"Bond girls follow a fairly well-developed pattern of beauty. They possess splendid figures and tend to dress in a slightly masculine, assertive fashion, with few pieces of jewelery and that in a masculine cut, wide leather belts, and square-toed leather shoes. They often sport light though noticeable sun-tans, and they generally use little or no makeup and no fingernail or toenail polish, also wearing their nails short." —O.F. Snelling, author of Double 0 Seven, James Bond, A Report.
I'm under no illusion that there are several Bond girls that don't have tomboy style in the slightest, but after seeing For Your Eyes Only over the weekend and watching Melina Havelock wield a crossbow, I knew there were at least a few.
I'd love to know, do you have a favorite James Bond character and/or movie?
