Ever since Ian Fleming's famous British spy novel, Dr. No , was first adapted into film and released in 1962, his series' beloved hero James Bond has no doubt been one of the most influential movie presences of all time. Talking his way in and out of bedrooms and the lairs of bad guys, the secret agent has personified the definition of smooth. From Sean Connery to Daniel Craig, a different face could never tarnish the Bond mystique; it is a life led by the privileged and an escape in to every man’s fantasy.

The spy's series is not only a cinematic experience, but it also introduced the world to an enviable lifestyle. As we learned from his films, if you've never walked in to a bar, ordered a gentleman’s cocktail, and made eyes at a scantily clad women while coolly dragging from a cigarette, then you haven’t lived. 

They say behind every great man, stands a great woman. In Bond's case, you better take a number, because behind 007 stand the 72 most bad-ass women to have ever graced the big screen. Bond girls, as they've come to be known, are extraordinarily independent women oozing with femme fatale mystique who could knife you in the blink of an eye. And James Bond's ability to break down their walls and bed (almost all of) them adds to his legend. 

So with the franchise's 23rd installment, Skyfall, set to release in the UK on Oct. 26 and the U.S. on Nov. 9, Complex has been inspired to take a look back at every Bond girl from Honey Ryder to sexy new siren, Severine. A man can only hope for a Rolodex this impressive.
