Get the Look: James Bond's Bathing Trunks

11/28/2006 at 10:21 AM ET

For male James Bond fans, Daniel Craig’s homage to Ursula Andress’s infamous bikini scene may have been a little disappointing (especially in comparison to Halle Berry’s take), but not so for his female fans! In fact, ladies have been quick to snap up Craig’s snug swim trunks for the Bonds in their lives. Part of the Grigio Perla men’s range of celeb-favorite Italian brand La Perla, the trunks have proved to be so popular that UK department store Selfridges’ quickly sold out the coveted item shortly after Casino Royale‘s release. Reportedly, Craig picked out the trunks for the film himself — get your own pair for $87 by calling 1-866-LAPERLA (six-pack abs not included).

EWWW the worst Bond ever.

His hips are feminine, his face is awful. :(
Bad decision

EWWW EWWW

joy on

he is yummy…the rugged look is in.

Bunky on

Roger Moore was the worst Bond (Moonraker? Seriously.)
It probably would have been Timothy Dalton but, mercifully, they didn’t keep him around long enough.

Daniel Craig rocks as Bond. If you want feminine, look no further than Pierce Brosnan’s dainty turn (enjoyable, sure, but not tough). Bond’s a character who got his designation (007) by *killing* people for Her Majesty – it’s about time they gave him a little edge.

The shorts should come with a warning not to attempt unless you look like Daniel Craig.

Susana on

I agree Vanessa…I’m defenitely not loving the new bond, we need another one that looks like Pierce Brosnan!

jessica on

he is so effing hot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

aa on

Craig makes a great Bond! And it really has nothing to do with the apparel or physique either (though both are far from bad!). If you see the movie, rather than just commercials, there’s no doubt he is a good choice for the role–especially in this movie. He’s more rough-around-the-edges killer than suave “ladies man,” but it definitely works for him. This is a Bond who takes his work seriously.

Based on looks alone–he’s not bad, and facially, he does look much older, although his body is certainly better than any Bond before him. But as an actor in the role, he is the package deal, and certainly the Bond Fleming had in mind.

Aimee on

Best Bond ever!! That old school rugged look is back and I’m soooo glad we as women are getting back to liking men who look like men and not baby faced pretty boys!! U ROCK DANIEL!!

yen on

it was about time that the man was the one taking his clothes off instead of always been the women

Rachel on

Nobody can replace Sean Conrey….nobody in their lifetime…………….ever.

j on

i don’t normally go for this look. but, i must say: yum!

Simone on

Craig is an excellent and Casino Royale’s worldwide success proves it!

He looks fantastic in those little blue shorts!

RT on

Sean Connery will always be the greatest James Bond in my opinion! Even at 76 he is still sexy!!

Sela on

Sean Connery had it all and will always be my favorite Bond.
I think Graig did a great job as Bond and rebooting the franchise (44 yrs and counting) made the new Bond interesting and fresh. My only complain – it was a bit too long and too many product placements.

Astro on

He’s disgusting!! Ugliest man ever!! If I want to see an ugly guy, I’ll watch a mob movie (Godfather anyone?) But I want my Bond handsome, and rugged?? Uh, rugged is Russell Crowe, not an ugly troll with ears that rival Dumbo’s. I personally would take Sean, Roger, Timothy or Pierce any day of the week, then sit thru 2 agonizing hours of Daniel playing Texas Hold Em. (how stupid is that?! Bond playing Texas Hold Em. Ian Fleming is rolling over in his grave)

Katri on

The Best Bond Ever Made!
And he´s the best Man for the job. So right choice.

me on

great movie–follows the book, which was written in 1953 really well. Craig is hot!!!!

Kim on

I think Daniel Craig is an excellent choice and for those who think he is not hot, to bad for you! He is the new bond and for the first time since Sean Connery I am willing to go see a James Bond movie!

Mrs.Borrego on

What makes Daniel Craig so darn hott? Please help me understand because from the direction I’m at he doesn’t look that great.

wawatukina on

All I can say is…HOT, HOT, HOT!!!

C on

I totally agree with Bunky. Craig is awesome as the new Bond. I had my doubts about a blond 007 too but after seeing the movie, I’m convinced he’s perfect for the role…very charming, and yes, hot.

Monica on

This man has it all! Daniel Craig totally rocks with his charm, sex appeal and Steve McQueen coolness as James Bond!!! I totally agree 100% with Aimee!! DANIEL ROCKS!!!!!!!!!

Erica on

Face…not attractive. I don’t like the thin hair or ears. Body…AWESOME! WOW! Great great great. Love the arms. So strong looking.

But those legs…too feminine! He’d look super in a mini skirt with those things.

Ashley on

O I love that shot. This was favorite part of the movie!! J/K
LOVE HIM!!!

Mona on

I’m surprised myself that I find this shot quite, well, pleasing. It works well for this man but it won’t work well for all unfortunately.

SAT on

Yummy!!! My bf could be his younger brother :)

Leslie Criswell on

Ummmm…………SCOTLAND FOREVER! Enough said.

kate on

YUM YUM YUM YUM. he is seriously the best bond ever. drool.

Vi on

Daniel Craig is an awesome Bond, great actor, great body. By the way, did you know that Ian Fleming based Bond on a real-life Canadian? Cool, eh?

enigma on

Daniel Craig is way HOT! He is the cat’s MEOW and does the infamous line “Bond, James Bond” justice at the end of film!
I thought I would never find blonde hair blue eyed men to be sexy……..I am glad Daniel Craig changed that for me! His body is so feverishly fine!
He was pretty good in “Layercake” as well, too bad Sienna Miller was in it!

Mel on

This guy is Hot!!!!!

Jessica M. on

Daniel Craig ROCKS as Bond! No one else could have brought about the character more fantastically.

Sunni on

Brosnons’ the best Bond yet.

Terri on

Daniel Craig is James Bond. He is a fabulous Bond and to date is the best Bond we have had thus far surpassing Sean Connery who I am sorry never did a thing for me in the role (of course I was only not born yet when the first one came out). Daniel is rugged, charming, masculinity is oozing out all over, and he is just sexy as hell. He brings something new and fresh and exciting to this character. The movie was absolutely fantastic. See him in his tux, see him in his short sleeved white shirt and dressy casual pants, just go see him. He brings a much needed realness, rawness, and ruggedness to this series and it really needed it too. He embraced this role and made it his own and did it so splendidly and suavely and he is a wondeful actor. I can’t wait for the next installment and to see his next movies as well.

Angie on

HOOOOOOOT!Not only is he great looking, sexy and charming, but he did most of his stunts,which definitely makes him the ‘real deal’.Bond is, after all, a professional assassin.Craig is also a fantastic character actor and he brought out the man Fleming had in mind really well: He was human, yet hardened.And this shot sooo does it for me.Mmm,mmm,mmm.Delicious.

Kate on

OMG! BEST BOND EVER! HOTTEST, SEXIEST, OMG I AM ABSOLUTELY AMAZED! I HAVE ALREADY SEEN THIS MOVIE TWICE AND I ABSOLUTELY CANNOT WAIT TILL IT COMES OUT ON DVD!!!! OMG OMG OMG WHAT CAN I SAY? I THINK DANIEL CRAIG IS GORGEOUS! HIS FACE, AWESOME! HIS BODY, HEARTHROB! OMG, I LOVE HIM!

donna on

CRAIG IS THE HOTTEST GUY IN THE PLANET PERIOD. TO THOSE WHO DISAGREE AND HAD NOT EVEN SEEN CASINO ROYALE OR ANY OF CRAIG DANIEL MOVIES, PLEASE STOP AND WATCH HIS JAMES BOND DEBUT. I’VE SEEN CASINO ROYALE TWICE AND I CANNOT GET ENOUGH OF THIS GUY. HE’S SO RUGGEDLY HANDSOME, INTERESTING, GOOD SENSE OF HUMOR, EXCELLENT ACTOR AND AN EYE CANDY TO BOOTH. LADIES, ENOUGH OF BRAD PITT, ETC., CRAIG IS THE MAN OF THE MOMENT, THE SEXIEST MAN ALIVE 2007. HE WILL ROCK YOUR WORLD WITH THIS MOVIE, BELIEVE ME, IT DID MINE. I CANNOT STOP THINKING ABOUT THOSE CLEAR BLUE PIERCING EYES AND HIS SEXY SCENES WITH THOSE BOND GIRLS. WHEW. SO HOT. ENOUGH SAID ALREADY. GIVE THIS HOTTIE A CHANCE TO SHINE, HE IS ALL WORTH THE $15M THAT HE GOT FOR THIS FILM AND MUCH MUCH MORE. PLEASE CRAIG MAKE MORE ROMANTIC AND ACTION MOVIES AND YOU WILL GRAB THE SPOTLIGHT FROM ALL THESE AMERICAN BORING ACTORS THAT WE HAVE THAT I THINK ARE BIG HOLLYWOOD JOKERS. :D

deep on

stuart on

OK i am a guy and i have to say to the ladies that are calling Daniel Craig yuk need to take a look at themselves in the mirror before uttering such non sense. he is clearly at the top of the bond list after just one movie! he will probably overtake Sean in the rankings of the best bond ever after a few more movies under his belt. undoubtedly Craig has all the attributes of a great Bond. Nuff said

Lisa on

Daniel Craig is sooo damn sexy in this movie, drives me crazy!

Preston on

Sorry Vanessa but I would have to agree with pretty much the majority of the world by saying that even though I like all the bond’s with maybe the exeption of George Lazenby, Daniel Craig is the most realistic one and frankly I’f I were gay lol……I’d be all over that.

cherry on

he is cute!!!!!!!BEST Bond ever!!!!!

Gracie Hayes on

I would have to say that Daniel Craig is the best James Bond of all times.:~:

Isabel Russell on

i think that Daniel Craig is only second to Pierce Brosnan when playing the role of James Bond*:,

Wire Shelving : on

Daniel Craig is bigger and better than Sean Connery. i like him as the new james bond*”-
