Known as the ultimate Bond girl, Ursula Andress, became an overnight sensation because of a bikini (similar to another '60s sex symbol). Her minute-long bikini-clad entrance onto the screen in "Dr.No" earned her a Golden Globe for the 1962 film, and the attention of men everywhere, including Marlon Brando and James Dean (the lucky girl had flings with both leading men). Always oozing confidence and icy cool (even today) Andress was never afraid to bare some skin. When asked why she posed nude for Playboy in 1965 Andress replied, "Because I'm beautiful." You can't blame her for wanting to show off that bod.
In this 1970 photograph Andress is more covered up than we've ever seen her, but she is still dressed to kill. Even her turtleneck looks sexy when paired with a tiny mini and vampy high boots. Would you try a monochromatic number this fall?
