The bikini worn by URSULA ANDRESS in DR NO has sold for £41,000 ($61,500) at auction.
The costume was made from one of Andress's own bras covered with ivory cotton. It has clearly seen better days and was more yellowy-brown than white, but the bidding was furious nonetheless. A telephone bidder finally bought the bikini. Andress has attributed her success to the outfit. (PDD/WNWR)
