Dressing the part of James Bond

Even though there are decades of Bond looks from more than 20 films, everyone knows this secret agent is also dashing and debonair. From formal tuxedo events to James Bond skiing the slopes, scuba diving, and monochrome leisure outfits, Bond look-alikes will be sure to wear the following:

Tuxedos , black or white, modern or vintage; ski suits, unforgettable in The Spy Who Loved Me with a yellow and red ensemble or catching air in For Your Eyes Only with the #24 on a blue suit; scuba suits; add accessories: Spear gun, knife, tanks, goggles; leisure wear, try a black turtleneck with black pants and weapons and gadgets, you can’t be a secret agent without these.

Dressing the part of a Bond Babe

It wouldnand#8217;t be a 007 movie without a beautiful woman, with names as captivating as their charms. Here are a few favorites:

Pussy Galore/Goldfinger, plunging necklines, white or black dress suits, or a black catsuit … and a pistol, of course; Honey Ryder/Dr. No, wear a vintage white bikini with a dagger, be sure to bring the giant conch shell. Or go for sultry white bohemian princess, toss a white sheet with a tiara around your head; Bibi Dahl/For Your Eyes Only, red snowsuit, giant white earmuffs, and a black cowboy hat is all it takes; Magda/Octopussy, middle eastern belly-dancer outfit to successfully pull this look off and Tiffany Case/Diamonds Are Forever with red hair, a gigantic diamond, an Uzi submachine gun, black gown and a white fur.

Dressing the part of a Bond Villain

Jaws/The Spy Who Loved Me, perfect for the big and tall guys, he wears suits and ties but the noteworthy characteristic are his steel teeth, Oddjob/Goldfinger, oh, the fun you can have with a steel-rimmed bowler hat, a black three-piece suit, and a tobacco pipe and#8230; it wouldn’t hurt to take a cat for your sidekick; Xenia Zirgavna Onatopp/Goldeneye, she has a few of the easier looks to choose from: Military or sexy … an AK-47 or a cigar; Auric Goldfinger/Goldfinger, playing golf, lounging in a golden colored bathrobe, or military uniform and Paco and#8220;Pistolsand#8221; Scaramanga/The Man With The Golden Gun, white retro tux, black tie, some fake bushy eyebrows and sideburns, and be sure to carry a golden pistol.
