Italian actress and glam diva Nancy Dell'Olio managed to recreate that very famous and iconic Bond girl pose, in the 1962 James Bond film "Dr No".

The film, which starred Sean Connery as James Bond, also had Ursula Andress as the original Bond girl and famously introduced her character rising from beneath the waves, at a beach, in a bikini. Dell'Olio managed to pull of that same pose and shoot... all these years later... wearing a purple bikini.

The model, who is now 50 years old, was wonderfully confident when re-creating the scene, for a photo shoot for Hello! Magazine.

"I have never loved my body more than I do now. Lately I have been exhausted tired, but it doesn't show. People say I have never looked more healthy and that comes from inside. I am the happiest I have ever been." Dell'Olio told Hello!

The model, who also met Prince Harry recently, said the young royal had "charisma, definitely; a twinkle in his eye and a lovely smile, a lovely face".

"In the flesh, he is even more handsome than in his pictures. I said to him, 'We should go dancing' because one time we danced together. We had a good laugh," Dell'Olio told Hello!

The newest Bond girl is currently single, although, according to ThisisLondon, she did briefly date former M&S Chairman Sir Stuart Rose.
