The Invasion of the Bond Babes

Entertainment Weekly and MSNBC are Bond girl-obsessed today. The former presents slide shows both of the “10 Best Bond Girls” (beginning with Ursula Andress from Dr. No and working its way down to Carole Bouquet from For Your Eyes Only) and the “10 Worst Bond Girls(starting off with the gorgeous Denise Richards from The World Is Not Enough and concluding with Maud Adams from Octopussy). While MSNBC takes a less controversial course, choosing only to celebrate what its contributors think are the five top Bond babes:

Halle Berry
(Die Another Day)
Famke Janssen (GoldenEye)
Michelle Yeoh
(Tomorrow Never Dies)
Diana Rigg (On Her Majesty’s Secret Service)
• Ursula Andress (Dr. No)

In the meantime, writer-editor Gerald So has his own opinions to share on this earthshaking subject. You will find his studied selections of cinematic pulchritude here.

I’m only stunned that Swedish-Polish actress Izabella Scorupco (pictured above), from 1995’s GoldenEye, doesn’t appear on any of these lists. What a travesty!
