The bikini worn by Ursula Andress in Dr No and Halle Berry’s two-piece outfit from Die Another Day feature in a new James Bond show - alongside Sean Connery’s shorts.

The iconic customes all feature in a 007 exhibition at the Barbican, in central London from July 6.

Fifty years of 007 movies are being celebrated at a two-month long exhibition, Designing 007: Fifty Years Of Bond Style.

Among the 400 Bond items are the swimming trunks by Daniel Craig as he emerged from the sea in his Bond debut, Casino Royale.

More than 400 Bond items will be brought together for the exhibition, opening on July 6, with weapons such as Scaramanga’s golden gun, Oddjob’s deadly bowler hat and Rosa Klebb’s flick-knife shoes.

Vehicles and gadgets will include Bond’s 1964 Aston Martin DB5 and the attache case featured in From Russia With Love. Roger Moore’s white tuxedo from Octopussy and space suit from Moonraker are also to feature.

The exhibition, guest-curated by fashion historian Bronwyn Cosgrave and Oscar-winning costume designer Lindy Hemming, will tour internationally.

Further details are at www.barbican.org.uk/bond.

The latest Bond movie Skyfall, again starring Craig as the suave agent, is in production and due for release later this year.
