Harri's character never called for 'sexy'. But no matter; her field agent persona still has sexy undertones in how she wears her dresses, like this hot, shirt dress.

No Bond movie is complete without Bond girls. And no Bond girl is complete without a killer wardrobe - literally.

Costume designer Jany Temime says her mantra for the entire wardrobe of Skyfall was 'iconic for 2012'.

Daniel Craig had all the swag the 007 agent needed in his Tom Ford designs, but it was the Bond girls who stole the show.

The two Bond girls, Berenice Marlohe and Naomie Harris, played two different roles and so needed to be dressed accordingly.

For Marlohe, Temime envisioned an Ava Gardner type. She required two knockout gowns, one a second-skin L'Wren Scott number that Marlohe had to be sewn into each morning, and a red, slinky Donna Karan for her final scene in the film.

Harris was classic in her 'bad ass' role. As a field agent, she didn't need to be dressed in sexy gowns. But she did show her softer side in a yellow gown from Amanada Wakeley's autumn/winter 2011-12 runway.

Her dresses were practical for her character and she wore them so well.

Here are the looks Temime created for the Bond girls.
