Sure, there’s plenty to be excited about with the release of the latest James Bond flick, Casino Royale — especially dashing new 007, Daniel Craig. But what would the Bond franchise be without the super agent’s feisty, female component, the “Bond girl?” As style icons – who can forget Ursula Andress’ famous white bikini from Dr. No — with sex appeal, the ladies of the James Bond films have rightfully earned their place in the pop pantheon. As we look at the new crop — Eva Green and Caterina Murino — we fondly recall our favorite Bond women (Honor Blackman as Pussy Galore or Halle Berry as Jinx) and even those who, er, “stirred” us the wrong way (uh, Denise Richards as nuclear physicist Dr. Christmas Jones). Now you take on the case: Tell us who is your favorite Bond Girl?
