The "James Bond" movies are known just as much for the girls James encounters as for the character of James Bond himself. You can dress as a Bond girl by mastering the look and style typically used by the women in the films. Match stunning elegance with intriguing allure, and you have what it takes to be a memorable Bond girl for Halloween, whether it's trick-or-treating or a party.

Items you will need

  • Long dress
  • Stiletto heels
  • Small clutch purse
  • Diamond (or simulated) jewelry
  • Fake eyelashes
  • Lipstick or lip gloss
Step 1

Acquire a long elegant dress with a low-cut neckline, long slits in the sides that show off your legs and a low-cut back. Pick a dress with a solid color that's either black or red, or if you'd like to pay tribute to '70s Bond girls, you can choose gold.

Step 2

Acquire stiletto heels, especially ones that are very high. Red heels can work for a red dress, but if your dress is a different color, stick with black heels.

Step 3

Find a small clutch purse. The decorations should be shiny and make the purse sparkle, such as sequins or metallic details, but avoid glitter.

Step 4

Put on jewelry to add to your elegant Bond girl look. Choose diamonds or things that look like diamonds.

Step 5

Apply fake eyelashes to give yourself lush, vibrant Bond-girl eyelashes.

Step 6

Make your lips pink and pillowy by using lipstick and lip gloss.

Step 7

Drape a strand of your hair over one of your eyes, which adds allure and mystery to your Bond girl look.

Tips & Warnings

  • For an even more convincing Bond girl look, come to the party or other Halloween event with a male friend dressed as James Bond.
