Bombshells: Iconic Bond Girls

James Bond just celebrated his 50th year in the movies. While I haven't seen them all, I am a big fan of Bond flicks. In celebration my inspiration this week is iconic Bond Girls, because, well, who wouldn't want to be one?

For this post, I gave myself the task of choosing 5, and ended up with 6. That means that I had to leave out several, several amazing ladies. But anyway.. here we go!

1. Honey Ryder played by Ursula Andress in Dr. No (1962). She set the standard. 

2. Sylvia Trench played by Eunice Gayson in From Russia with Love (1963) and Dr. No (1962)

.

3. Pussy Galore played byHonor Blackman in Goldfinger (1964)- The most classic Bond Girl name. 

4. Jill Masterson played by Shirley Eaton in Goldfinger (1964). Classic Bond scene with the gold paint. 

5. Jinx played by Halle Berry in Die Another Day (2002). She brought back the classic look. Honey Ryder would be proud. 

6. Severine played by Berenice Marlohe in Skyfall (2012). I couldn't help but include her. I think she will become one of the legends. 

Which Bond Girl is your favorite? 

Bombshells: Angelica Huston

Angelica Huston is a beautiful actress. In her modeling days in the 1970's she became a favorite of photographers such as Bob Richardson (whom she had a relationship with) and Richard Avedon. She was also a muse to designer Halston. Her 70's style has long been an inspiration. Here are some shots from her modeling career. 

 On the right. Love that outfit! 

Bombshells: Linda Darnell

Welcome to my new series; Style Icon! I will be featuring those whose style is a great inspiration to me both current and from the past. First up is 1940's screen star, Linda Darnell. She encompasses classic 1940's style and was so beautiful, I am surprised she is not more well known.

Born in Texas in 1923 she started modeling when she was 11. It wasn't long until she made her way to Hollywood. The movie Star Dust (1940) put her on the map. Two of my favorites are;  A Letter to Three Wives (1949) and Fallen Angel (1945). 

I love this whole look! Turban, crochet cardigan and those nails! 

Gorgeous!

Can I please look like this when I ride my bike?

Stunning

Chic!
