Maud Adams and Roger Moore - Octopussy poster detail

How many pattern models can say they’ve been a Bond girl? Since the Toronto International Film Festival is underway, this instalment in my models series focuses on Swedish model-turned-actor Maud Adams, whose film credits include The Man with the Golden Gun (1974), Rollerball (1975), and Octopussy (1983). (To see the other series posts, click the ‘models’ tag below.)

Before getting into film acting in the 1970s, former Miss Sweden Maud Adams (née Wikström, b. 1945), worked as a model in Paris and New York for publications including Vogue, McCall’s, and Vogue Patterns. McCall’s 1044 sees her modelling a check suit by Laird-Knox:

Maud Adams appears on many Vogue designer patterns of the later ’60s, such as this one for a dress by Patou:

Here she wears a dress and matching scarf by James Galanos:

And here Adams models the maxi version of Vogue 1847, a fabulous halter dress by Pierre Cardin:
