A now grubby white bikini worn by Bond Girl Ursula Andress fetched a staggering 41,000 pounds ($60,000) at a London auction held at Christie‘s. The costume, whose top was made from one of Andress‘s own bras covered with ivory cotton, thrilled Bond fans when the curvaceous actress emerged from the sea in the 1962 film „Dr No“. Other Bond fans were making the most of Valentine‘s Day. Some bought flowers, others chocolates, but money was no object for Max Reid, who bought his wife one of 007‘s cars. Reid, whose favourite Bond film is „Goldeneye“, paid nearly 158,000 pounds ($230,000) for a silver Aston Martin DB5, driven in a car chase by Pierce Brosnan in the 1995 hit.
