Which actress has what it takes to be the next leading lady in the James Bond franchise? They will need to be attractive of course, glamorous and sophisticated. They will need to have style and smarts, be savvy and seductive. Though they may or may not be essential to James Bond’s mission, they will capture hearts and surely not be forgotten. Past Bond girls include Kim Basinger and Halle Berry, which of these actresses do you think can best live up to those expectations?
Blake Lively and Steve Madden Sarrina
Blake Lively is young, gorgeous and chic. She has experience as an action hero’s love interest through her role in “Green Lantern” and we know she can pull off the tough girl thing if necessary through her role in “The Town” where she plays a girl from a rough Boston neighborhood. She was named in Time Magazine’s one hundred most influential people and we think she could make a great Bond girl, do you? Here she looks stunning in a fitted blue dress and bold purple pumps, similar to the Steve Madden Sarrina. These Steve Madden pumps are the perfect chunky heel, available in a variety of cool colors.
Eva Mendes and Martinez Valero Orli
Why Eva Mendes? The Cuban-American beauty oozes glamour and sex appeal. She has an impressive list of films to her name and has played bad girls, good girls, tough girls and anything in between. She is super stylish and has been ranked number one in askmen.com’s 99 most desirable women. She could be a fierce contender, if she wanted the role. Here Eva wows in a black Armani gown with satin peep toe pumps, similar to the Martinez Valero Orli. The Martinez Valero pumps are a perfect peep toe with added flare in the form of glam rhinestone detailing.
Ashley Greene and Pelle Moda Intrigue
Ashley Greene is pretty new to the acting game, but we still think she would make a great Bond girl. Her experience playing vampire Alice Cullen in “Twilight” will be useful – Alice is spunky and tough, two essential Bond girl musts. She is also stunning, which certainly can’t hurt. Seen here at the “Push” film premiere in California, she wears a belted flower print dress and cage style sandals similar to the Pelle Moda Intrigue. These Pelle Moda pumps are super stylish and almost exactly like Ashley’s – we love them! Now that you know some of our top Bond chick picks, who are yours?
