Top 10 Best James Bond Girls

No Bond movie is complete without its leading ladies, fondly referred to as Bond girls. They're a quintessential part of the franchise, as integral as the suave spy himself. But let's be clear about one thing right off the bat - these women are anything but mere sidekicks.

These are women of strength, of power, of intrigue. They can be allies, foes, or romantic interests - often a mixture of all three. From scientists and secret agents to villains and vixens, each one has a distinct persona that sets her apart. They aren't just 'girls'; they're strong, multi-faceted characters who bring their unique flavor to the Bond universe.

They're the ones who challenge Bond, who match him step for step, who sometimes even save the day. In their stylish dresses and killer heels, they've thwarted plans, uncovered secrets, and yes, occasionally broken Bond's heart. And that's what makes them so fascinating.

The question is, who are the best Bond girls? Which ones stand out in the annals of Bond history? Who's got the right mix of charisma, intelligence, and allure to take the top spot?
The Top Ten
1 Ursula Andress (Dr. No - 1962) Ursula Andress is a Swiss actress, former model and sex symbol who has appeared in American, British and Italian films.

She is so pretty and was the first Bond girl. She is perfect for her role and for James. She knows how to handle her gun and is a great match for Bond. She is so, so, so cool!

She must be number one and not a rank less. Ursula is the undisputed greatest and hottest Bond girl ever. Just a shot of her in the bikini would prove a lot.

2 Famke Janssen (GoldenEye - 1995) Famke Beumer Janssen is a Dutch actress, director, screenwriter and former fashion model. She played Xenia Onatopp in GoldenEye, Jean Grey / Phoenix in the X-Men film series, Ava Moore on Nip/Tuck and Lenore Mills in the Taken film trilogy.

The only person who I would love to be killed by during a you-know-what affair.

The only girl in everything that you would WANT to kill you!

3 Honor Blackman (Goldfinger - 1964)
4 Barbara Bach (The Spy who Loved Me - 1977)

Not just her body, but her face and her attitude are what it is!

By far the best. Look at the scene on the train.

5 Lois Chiles (Moonraker - 1979)

I don't get why so many people hate 'Moonraker.' Only the last 20 minutes were in space! The rest was phenomenally awesome! And Lois Chiles was the first Bond girl who kicked ass! Not to mention her beautiful face!

She's exactly my type of woman. Beautiful, intelligent, and refined.

She's very seductive and a drug of addiction.

6 Eva Green (Casino Royale - 2006) Eva Gaëlle Green is a French actress and model. She started her career in theatre before making her film debut in 2003 in Bernardo Bertolucci's film The Dreamers She has since appeared in several notable films, including Sin City, Casino Royale, Dark Shadows, and 300: Rise of an Empire

Probably the most complex Bond girl of them all, fueled by an amazing performance by Eva Green. Smart, witty, and incredibly beautiful. Not only did James Bond fall in love with her, but the viewers as well.

You can just sense the chemistry between them!

The prettiest woman in the world.

7 Izabella Scorupco (GoldenEye - 1995)

One of the more three-dimensional Bond girls of the Brosnan era.

8 Jane Seymour (Live and Let Die - 1973) Jane Seymour, is an English actress, best known for her performances in the James Bond film Live and Let Die; Somewhere In Time; East of Eden; The Scarlet Pimpernel; Onassis: The Richest Man in the World; War and Remembrance; the French epic La Révolution française as the ill-fated queen Marie Antoinette;... read more

Jane was just a fantastic Bond Girl. Not to mention beautiful. And why the hell is Gemma Arterton in the top 10? She was so useless in 'Quantum of Solace,' and she had like 10 minutes of screen time.

9 Diana Rigg (On Her Majesty's Secret Service - 1969)

Bond's wife! Come on, people, this is possibly the only woman Bond has ever truly loved (and who has not betrayed him).

The final scene makes me cry. Her beauty level is unbelievable.

10 Sophie Marceau (The World is Not Enough - 1999) Sophie Marceau, born Sophie Danièle Sylvie Maupu (17 November 1966) is a French actress, director, screenwriter, and author.

As a teenager, Marceau achieved popularity with her debut films La Boum (1980) and La Boum 2 (1982), receiving a César Award for Most Promising Actress. She became a... read more
The Contenders
11 Maud Adams (The Man with the Golden Gun - 1974 / Octopussy - 1983)
12 Claudine Auger (Thunderball - 1965)

'Thunderball' is a relatively boring film, especially when compared to Connery's five other films. Probably the film's three biggest highlights come from its three main Bond girls, with Domino being arguably the most beautiful Bond girl ever to grace the screen. I just try to picture her beautiful face whenever a dull underwater scene is happening.

13 Kim Basinger (Never Say Never Again - 1983) Kimila Ann Basinger is an American actress, singer and former fashion model. Following a successful modeling career in New York during the 1970s, Basinger moved to Los Angeles where she began her acting career on television in 1976.

Perhaps the only good performance in the movie.

14 Carey Lowell (Licence to Kill - 1989)

Best Bond Girl by far. She seemed to have quite a special relationship with Bond. She is pretty, but she is also tough and was very helpful in the plot. She wasn't just a bit of eye candy like so many Bond girls are.

15 Daniela Bianchi (From Russia with Love - 1963)
16 Denise Richards (The World Is Not Enough - 1999) Denise Lee Richards (born February 17, 1971) is an American actress and former fashion model. She has appeared in numerous films, including Starship Troopers (1997), Wild Things (1998) with Neve Campbell, Drop Dead Gorgeous (1999), The World Is Not Enough (1999) as Bond girl Christmas Jones, and in... read more

Maybe not the best Bond girl of them all, but certainly one of the hottest, if not the hottest. Denise Richards at her prime.

17 Michelle Yeoh (Tomorrow Never Dies - 1997) Tan Sri Michelle Yeoh Choo-Kheng is a Chinese-Malaysian actress, best known for performing her own stunts in the Hong Kong action films that brought her to fame in the early 1990s.
18 Gemma Arterton (Quantum of Solace - 2008) Gemma Christina Arterton is an English actress. Arterton made her film debut in the comedy film St Trinian's.
19 Tanya Roberts (A View to a Kill - 1985)
20 Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace - 2008) Ólga Konstantínovna Kurylénko, born Ólha Konstantýnivna Kurylénko, is a French actress and model of Ukrainian origin.
21 Shirley Eaton (Goldfinger - 1964)

Was she the one that died by being painted gold? She was a hottie.

22 Jill St. John (Diamonds Are Forever - 1971)
23 Luciana Paluzzi (Thunderball - 1965)
24 Tania Mallet (Goldfinger - 1964)
25 Grace Jones (A View To A Kill - 1985) Grace Beverly Jones is a Jamaican-American supermodel, singer, songwriter, record producer, and actress. Born in Jamaica, she moved when she was 13, along with her siblings, to live with her parents in Syracuse, New York.
