How to Dress Like a Bond Girl for Halloween

Unlike any of the other run-of-the-mill sexy Halloween costumes, being a "Bond girl" requires a certain degree of assertiveness and class. On film, Bond girls are not only attractive, but they've got brains, too. Whether you choose to be a fellow agent, an ally or a villainous femme fetale, a Bond girl can be an all-around entertaining character to portray for Halloween. You can choose to mimic your favorite Bond girl or you could dress as a general, iconic Bond girl. To top it off, introducing yourself with a risqué double entendre can be fun in itself.

Step 1

Take a look at the list of Bond girls. If you want to be racy, consider Jill Masterson (Shirley Eaton) of "Goldfinger" and use body paint to achieve head-to-toe gold. If you'd rather be a spy, think Wai Lin (Michelle Yeoh) of "Tomorrow Never Dies" and her cat-suit getup. Be the classic Bond girl if you can't choose one.

Step 2

Get an elegant, form-fitting, figure-hugging evening gown. Consider provocative details, such as a thigh-high slit or a dangerously low back. Black would be the classic color of choice, but style and color choice depends on your personal taste.

Tips & Warnings

  • Bond girl hair and makeup should be classy and sultry, but never overwhelming.
  • If you don't feel comfortable in figure-hugging attire and do not have the time to go on a Bond girl workout regimen, use body-sculpting underwear.
