I admire the essence of a Bond Girl. Mysterious, Beautiful, and Cleverly named ala double entendre. A bond girl will typically be a victim, agent, ally, villainesses or member of an enemy organization. A few are just simply stunning!
According to Wikipedia A Bond girl is a character portraying a love interest/sex object of James Bond.
If you are a heterosexual male you wanted one of these girls, and if you are a female you wanted to be one of them.
Mariah Carey actually acted the part of one of my faves "Honey Ryder' from the film Dr.No- in her uniquely named "Honey" video.
And... Halle Berry had a similar take of this classic Bond Girl outfit in "Tomorrow Never Dies"
With a few other notable Bond Gals like:Pussy Galore- (I love her Killer hair)
Jill Masterson- (who else can make death by gold paint look so glam?)
Vesper Lynd (From the Original Casino Royale- '67)
and Solitaire- (Jane Seymour at her finest!)
These ladies are all icons. Classic, Elegant, Sexy, and Fashion Forward!
Recently Gwen Stefani payed a small tribute to these gals by creating a bond girl swimsuit line for her L.A.M.B collection along with countless other designers who continue to create pieces inspired by these fine women. Check her out at http://l-a-m-b.com/

In a true testament to those who admire street art- Jeremy Gibbs created a short film on unsuspecting people studying Banksy's work. The result? You see the diverse range of people who stopped, admired, and appreciated the value of this culture we call "street art"
