In light of today’s release of “Skyfall,” the latest installment in the James Bond franchise, classic Bond films are on everyone’s mind. While we adore all the men who have portrayed the sleek secret agent, we find ourselves caring more about the plethora of evil villains who make their way into each film.
Raoul Silva, the villain in “Skyfall” played by Javier Bardem, is definitely one for the history books. Silva, a dangerous cyberterrorist who sets out to avenge people who have betrayed him, has quickly become our new favorite film antagonist. We decided to round up other Bond nemeses, and also take a look at their signature style.
Click through the slideshow above for a look back at ten infamous villains and their trademark looks!
Name: Raoul Silva (played by Javier Bardem)
Movie: "Skyfall" (2012)
Trademark Look: Silva's ensembles definitely verge on Eurotrash, and his bleach blonde hair is certainly noteworthy. Miraculously, he's still handsome — a feat that only Bardem is capable of.
Name: Max Zorin (played by Christopher Walken)
Movie: "A View to A Kill" (1985)
Trademark Look: Zorin had bleach blonde hair and opted for preppy chic ensembles and pocket squares that would make even Chuck Bass blush.
Name: Lotte Lenya (played by Rosa Klebb)
Movie: "From Russia With Love" (1963)
Trademark Look: Lenya strictly wore military ensembles and rocked a red combover.
Name: Elektra King (played by Sophie Marceau)
Movie: "The World Is Not Enough" (1999)
Trademark Look: The twisted oil heiress was straight up Russian royalty, meaning exotic prints, super luxe fabrics and fur for days.
Name: Franz Sanchez (played by Robert Davi)
Movie: "License to Kill" (1989)
Trademark Look: When you're the most powerful drug lord in Latin America, you dress the part. Sanchez channeled "Scarface," but a more unkempt version.
Name: Alec Trevelyan (played by Sean Bean)
Movie: "GoldenEye" (1995)
Trademark Look: Trevelyan is one of Bond's most infamous antagonists, as the two were close many years prior and he betrayed him. He exclusively rolls in black combat gear.
Name: Eliot Carver (played by Jonathan Pryce)
Movie: "Tomorrow Never Dies" (1997)
Trademark Look: Carver remained somewhat fashion forward in black Nehru jackets.
Names: Colonel Moon (played by Will Yun Lee) and Gustav Graves (played by Toby Stephens). Both characters turn out to be the same bad guy, thanks to a scientific miracle.
Movie: "Die Another Day" (2002)
Trademark Looks: Moon stuck to North Korean military ensembles while Graves wore over-the-top Bond parody attire.
Name: Le Chiffre (played by Mads Mikkelsen)
Movie: "Casino Royale" (2006)
Trademark Look: For Le Chiffre, his most notable style essentials seemed to be his crisp black suits and facial scars.
Name: Dominic Greene (played by Mathieu Amalric)
Movie: "Quantum of Solace" (2008)
Trademark Look: Sleek tuxedos and crazy eyes are Greene's speciality.
