Ursula Andress

When: 1962-67 Sex symbolism: From the moment she emerged from the surf in a belted, off-white bikini in the 1962 James Bond flick "Dr. No," Andress seared herself into the moviegoing psyche. The role not only cast her archetype as the early-to-mid-'60s most iconic Object of Male Lust, it also helped the Swiss-born actress-model become the iconic Bond girl, the female ideal against which all others would be measured. Like those of other epochal sex symbols, the notches on Andress' bedpost are not unimpressive: She is said to have dated James Dean and Marlon Brando.
