Some of the most memorable images and items from film have gone on display as a half century of secret agent James Bond is celebrated in a new exhibition.
Many of the 400 items on display at Designing 007: 50 years of Bond Style will be well known to fans of the films.
The exhibition opens with an immediate wow factor, as film posters stretch along a corridor where a replica Sean Connery leans against his beautiful 1964 Aston Martin DB5.
The white bikini Ursula Andress wore as she emerged from the sea in Dr No’s jaw-dropping beach scene is also on display.
The bikini, quite tiny close up, is displayed alongside Halle Berry’s orange two-piece from Die Another Day and a recreation of Sir Sean Connery’s shorts from Thunderball.
Current Bond Daniel Craig, set to reappear in Skyfall in the autumn, won over many female Bond fans when he wore a pair of tight blue trunks in Casino Royale.
These are also part of the display which will tour internationally after the show closes at London’s Barbican in September.
