With a new actor at the helm, and a long hiatus away from the cinema, relaunching the James Bond franchise in 1995 used a few nods to 007's past to bring both continuity and change to the proceedings.

'GoldenEye' costume designer Lindy Hemming paid homage to Ursula Andress in 'Dr. No' when she selected a three-piece white bikini for Izabella Scorupco's character Natalya Simonova to wear during the beach scenes in Cuba.

Hemming sourced the bikini from La Perla and a matching sarong from Ghost.

Scorupco kept the ensemble after filming completed and it was in her personal possession until November 2012, when she donated it to the Child Diabetes Fund in Sweden for charity auction. The hammer came down at double the estimate, selling for 25,000 SEK (£2,100 or $3,600).
