The characters may be fictional, but their style is real
When it comes to spy flicks, it’s hard not to be entranced by the fast talking, smooth walking, and butt kicking sleuths who bring it on in the name of their country. Arguably the most popular onscreen spy is James Bond. But with all his debonaire swagger, his match is easily met with the Bond Girls that he encounters, who are just as fierce and fashionable as 007. Everything about these ladies is enviable. Their fashion is chic, their gadgets are sleek, and their missions are covert. To celebrate their sartorial allure, here’s a rundown of what you need in your arsenal, to get Bond Girl style. Master these, and you’ll be ready for any mission.
Dress Alluring Like A Bond Girl
There’s an allure to a Bond Girl, whether she’s a femme fatale, or the ‘Girl Friday’ type. This is what separates the good from the bad and the sophisticated from the sleazy. She knows how to dress for the occasion and sometimes that calls for a drop-dead look featuring a jaw-dropping dress like Léa Seydoux as Madeleine Swann in Spectre (2015). She knows how to catch Bond’s eye. Go for scarlet red, velvety black, or a shimmering metallic hue. Pick a color that makes you stand out from the rest!
Accessorize Your Look Like A Bond Girl
Accessories can make or break a Bond Girl’s look. Statement sunglasses to shield your peepers, a silky scarf strategically wrapped for a low-profile look, and driving gloves with that hands off look and for making a quick getaway in that vintage roadster. Vroom!
Paint Your Pout Like A Bond Girl
What better way to add drama to your beauty regime than with bold lips in a ruby red hue. There is no beauty item to transform a look as red lipstick such as Tom Ford Lip Color Matte in Ruby Rush. Even on a day when you opt out of a done up face, adding a pop of color to your lips makes the statement, “I’m ready for anything” and you will be
Have A Signature Scent Like A Bond Girl
So what’s your poison? This is a question that a quintessential spy girl can answer. The poison is her fragrance of choice – her signature scent. It’s the aroma that is easily identifiable by those who have encountered her. It may be spicy, sweet, or even musky – but above all, it’s distinctive. Wouldn’t you just die for a spritz of 007 for Women? It’s dubbed a “dangerously seductive fragrance.”
Have A Covert Hangout Like A Bond Girl
A true spy girl has a cool meet up spot that’s not on everybody’s radar but is a hotspot for the Who’s Who in the world of Fashpionage. Nestled in the heart of Paris, France in the Trinité quartier, the Hôtel Design Secret de Paris has that certain je ne sais quo that makes it the perfect place to rendezvous for covert cocktails or a top secret mission. J’adore the art deco look
Have A Signature Drink Like A Bond Girl
James Bond coined the phrase “shaken, not stirred” when referring to how he likes his martinis prepared. That is probably one of the mostmemorable film quotes of all time and proof that a sleuth loves their drink. A Bond Girl is no different and part of her covert style is having a signature drink. It can be a cocktail or a mocktail, a non-alcoholic drink that resembles a cocktail. Order up something not only tasty but, chic like the Vesper martini pictured here. This blue oasis was concocted at The Lounge & Bar in The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong.
