They say that “Behind every successful man, there is a woman”. That statement is quite true when it comes to Agent 007. A James Bond movie can’t be complete without a James Bond Girl. This list of Bond Girls will remind you why James Bond seems to fall under a love spell in every movie.

Who can forget the phenomenal James Bond film “Goldfinger”? No one can ever forget about that James Bond girl who was painted in gold. And yep, that was Shirley Eaton.
4. Honor Blackman as Pussy Galore
Honor Blackman was another bond girl in “Goldfinger”. She played the role of Pussy Galore, which is a very naughty name for a very phenomenal role. This is another reason the “Goldfinger” is one of the most popular James Bond film.
5. Claudine Auger as Dominique “Domino” Derval
