How To Look Like A Bond Girl!

Fashion blogger tips how to look like a Bond Girl
So, I shared this look over on Instagram recently and jokingly referred to Ariana Grande's 'Dangerous Woman' needing to be played in the background to accompany the outfit.  Well, it seems we're all on the same wavelength, as some of the comments literally had me laughing out loud.  One, in particular, inspired this blog post.

'' O H   ,   H I   B O N D ' S   G I R L ''

Have I died and gone to heaven?  Let's face it, to resemble the Bond Girls in even a shadow of a way is pretty thrilling.  I'd take 10% of a resemblance.  Wait, no I'd probably even take 6%.  Or less.  It's the ultimate outfit-compliment and something I've been striving for (whether I realised it or not) since watching my first Bond film, Dr. No, as a teenager.  Speaking of which, we all have our fave Bond Girls - which is yours?  My favourites include Elektra King (played by Sophie Marceau) in The World Is Not Enough and Miranda Frost (played by Rosamund Pike) in Die Another Day.

Okay, so obviously there's no official rulebook as to how to look like a Bond Girl, but it's safe to say they do have a few well-known noteworthy attributes that go a long way in helping us to channel 'the look'.  Do they carry apples around with them?  Probably not. However, there are a few indisputable must-haves that feature in their outfits.  Assuming they're not sexily emerging from the water, they're usually seen in figure-hugging dresses and fierce-heeled stilettos.  Next up comes the immaculate nails, bold lips and never a hair out of place (sorry, can't help you there - the British breeze is not my friend).  If you're also a bit of a softie, sunglasses can help a lot in helping you to achieve the look and add a touch of mystery to your outfit.  But - and it's a big 'but' - above all else, it's about confidence.  Do the Bond Girls ever doubt their ability and slip into the shadows in an attempt to conceal themselves?  Hell no.  Keep your head, heels and standards high - remember your worth, babe!

Needless to say, styling an outfit to resemble a Bond Girl is a pretty subjective challenge.  With that in mind, I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!  Do you associate any specific attributes with that of a stiletto-wearing Bond Girl?!

  1. I was going to say "confidence," but you already knew that, of course. You could easily be a Bond Girl. I've admittedly never seen a Bond movie in my life, but I assume, you totally could. Nice dress, killer heels, confidence - you got it!

    Have a lovely weekend Gabrielle!

  7. My favorite Bond Girl will forever be Ursula, emerging from the water in this amazing white bikini.

  8. Your pictures are stunning Gabrielle, definitely Bond girl vibes. I do love my James Bond. I love most of the bond girls and their names Octopussy, Pussy Galore, Strawberry Fields, Solitaire, May Day and Mary Goodnight. Great picture quality : ) xo

  9. This is a divine outfit Gabrielle although I confess I couldn't stare too long as it made my eyes somewhat fuzzy! For me, a bond girl is a sassy (and classy!), independent woman - a group you most definitely belong to!

  10. You do look gorgeous in that striped dress! The heels are lovely as well. Wonderful photographs! To look like a Bond girl is certainly a nice compliment.

    Elektra is the ultimate Bond girl for me, she brought such sophistication to that role. The World Is Not Enough was no masterpiece, but she made it watchable. Ursula Undress is another favourite. That scene when she is rising from the sea in a bikini is one of the most iconic moments in movie history, and probably the most iconic scene in any Bond film. Halle Berry did a great job of recreating that moment but if I remember well the film itself wasn't that great. I haven't seen the new Bond movie, but I think Monica Bellucci makes for a great Bond girl. I also like the fact they choose a mature woman to play a Bond girl. I'm thinking of watching the new Bond movie only for Bellucci's sake! I watched all the old Bond movies, my dad used to rent them back in the day. It is not surprising that the Bond franchise is still up and running. The Bond movies are ridiculously predictable and not very credible, but there is something about them.

  28. Bond Girl Gabs! Gorgeous and this dress has the Bond Girl effect that's for sure due to the cut of the body-con dress, your glasses and teamed high heels gives this outfit the Va Va Voom!

    All you need is a Martini shaken not stirred or champagne and chocolate (Hotel Chocolat, of course!)

    You look gorgeous!

  35. I love how positive this post is and YES - you do look like a bond girl! Looking like one is definitely all about confidence - then comes natural beauty and of course, the killer outfit. It's a lot about mystery too, I think - about telling little about yourself and let other people guessing :)

  42. Yesss, Bond Girl's are the ULTIMATE! I grew up watching the Bond films with my family and I was always in awe of hot these girls not only looked amazing but kicked major ass doing so :). Those heels are my favorite but I'm in love with all of it. You of course look friggin' amazing. My favorite part of the Bond girl is the killer confidence!
