Bond girls strike a pose for new photo exhibition

WENN

More than 45 former Bond girls have posed for photographs as part of a new exhibition.

Actresses including Honor Blackman, Shirley Eaton, Grace Jones and Jill St. John sat for a shoot with photographer Taryn Simon to celebrate the superspy movie franchise. Simon wrote to 57 former stars of the 007 films, and only ten declined to take part -- including the very first Bond girl, Ursula Andress, and British actress Gemma Arterton, who had a brief role in 2008's "Quantum of Solace."

 Some actresses referenced their part in the famous franchise, such as "Goldfinger" star Eaton, who wore a dress with a flash of gold coloring, while others, including "Live and Let Die" star Jane Seymour, chose simply to pose in elegant eveningwear. Simon tells British magazine Stella, "All the women had complete freedom to choose the clothes and poses they wanted ... Each woman who is not there is still represented by a blank space on the wall, together with a tag giving her name and the film in which she appeared."

The exhibition, titled Birds of the West Indies, will open at the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, later this year before heading out on tour.

I saw the first four Bond movies as a GI in W. Germany at two army chopper bases, early 60s.  Needless to say all shows were jam-packed.  Andress and Eaton got many whistles and cat-calls....
