We’ve seen Liu in action as one of Charlie’s Angels, so a Bond girl is no stretch for this bold, vivacious vixen.
Statuesque, sexy, athletic, and smart, Larter has everything it takes to be Bond’s go-to girl. And we’ve seen her in action on Heroes … she could totally switch sides and change everything.
While we love to see our favorite A-list stars on the big screen, we never object to a fresh and hot new face. Bronze and exotic, this up-and-coming actress could break through Bond’s tough exterior.
Sweet, cute, and bubbly, Ms. Bosworth would certainly keep James Bond feeling young.
Sims offers supermodel looks and actual acting talent! (Seriously, we miss the show Vegas.) She’s good. And hot.
Bubbly Ms. Minnillo would serve a casting agent well. Plus, we really think she needs a job. Why is she famous again?
Silvstedt is reminiscent of the original Bond babes: tall, glamorous, and oh-so sexy.
With beauty, brains, and a British accent, we think Ms. Blunt would be a natural fit.
This girl is versatile. Cuthbert can be elegant and polished or funky and cutting-edge. Naughty and nice … a perfect (and potentially deadly) combo for a man like Bond.
Newton’s delicately feminine wiles would balance out Bond’s masculine, tough-as-nails demeanor.
Give Bell a skimpy bikini and a sleek PPK and we’ll call her a Bond girl.
Maybe Bond’s sexy sidekick could break out in song—Ms. Knowles definitely has the chops, the bod, and the face to be 007’s better half. And she’s bootylicious to boot—shaken, not stirred.
Naturally gorgeous, Lilly would look absolutely spectacular in a phenomenal gown—hand-picked by Bond, of course.
Previous Bond girls (we won’t name names) have proved that you don’t need talent to make it to the silver screen. And though the ravishing Refaeli doesn’t have previous acting experience, she did date Leonardo DiCaprio—so maybe she learned a thing or two along the way.
This all-American woman would add a little class and grace to the role of a Bond babe. We’d love for Connelly to be the woman who tames 007.
Striking and seductive, Ms. Bündchen trading in her all-American boyfriend, Tom Brady, for a night with a sexy international spy is something we’d like to see.
This sassy Brit would definitely keep 007 in check. And she’d make darling eye candy to distract all the enemies.
Lakshmi’s exotic, mysterious look always entices. But we’d always be wondering which side she’s really on.
With her delectable red lips and womanly curves, Ms. Johansson would add a retro feel to a modern Bond.
Another Brit for this list, Knightley has the sort of regal beauty that would complement Bond’s dashing, genteel style.
This tomboy turned glamour goddess can play tough by day and elegant by night—an ideal match for James.
We can imagine this blond goddess batting her eyelashes at the enemy. We’d fall for it.
With outrageous curves, luscious hair, and a face that could stop traffic, Ms. Mendes would simmer and sizzle at Bond’s side. But this bombshell would definitely flirt with the bad side. 
Even after having a baby, Alba still has the hottest bod in Hollywood. And that reason alone has her at the top of our list.
Need we explain? Fox’s seductive stare and to-die-for body have us drooling. Enough said.
Exotic and elegant, sophisticated and sexy, these glamorous ladies sizzle and smolder. In a gorgeous gown or bodacious bikini, we can see these 25 stunners draped on the dapper arm of one 007. Here Brash highlights the sexiest would-be, could-be Bond girls.
