James Bond purists will likely scoff at me, but when I think of Bond girls, my mind immediately gravitates to Grace Jones as May Day in “A View to a Kill” (pictured). Her asymmetrical coiffure and penchant for sexy hoodies both terrorized and enticed Roger Moore. But in celebration of 50 years of Bond, I’m putting aside my love of Grace Jones to weigh in on the most stylish Bond girls. Cue the Shirley Bassey soundtrack and let’s have a look.
