Ursula Andress in 'Dr No' is still Britain's sexiest swimsuit moment

25-May-2010 • Bond News

Ursula Andress's James Bond bikini scene is still Britons' sexiest swimsuit moment - two years short of its 50th anniversary - reports The Sun.

The Swiss actress, now 74, set hearts pounding when she emerged from the ocean wearing the iconic white two-piece in 1962 Bond flick Dr No.

And her outfit remains a big hit, heading a new poll of the top ten swimsuit moments of all time.

Second was Raquel Welch's fur bikini from One Million Years BC.

Bo Derek's gold swimsuit from the movie 10 took third place in the nationwide survey of 2,060 men and women.

Charlie's Angel Farrah Fawcett was fourth with the red swimsuit made famous in a glossy poster.

Fifth place went to Halle Berry's orange bikini in 007 romp Die Another Day - in a scene that recreated Ursula's Dr No appearance.

The top ten was completed by Angelina Jolie, Pamela Anderson, Demi Moore, Myleene Klass and a holiday bikini worn by Dame Helen Mirren, 65.

A spokesman for online boutique Sandstorm, which commissioned the poll, said: "The same names always come up."
