In Bond's world, there are flashy girls like Vesper Lynd and Tiffany Case.  There are tough girls like Jinx and Pam Bouvier and then there are damsels like Solitaire and Mary Goodnight.  Tatiana doesn't really fit into any of these say that she does need a bit of rescue of sorts and even thats not quite on the level.  For as much love as From Russia With Love gets, Tatiana doesn't get much and on lists of favorite girls or characters, she's rarely seen.

Tatiana, a Russian clerk who uses the coveted Lektor decoding device in Turkey and wishes to defect and will bring the decoding machine with her if MI6 sends Bond to rescue her from her communist life.  We see Rosa Klebb who is Tatiana's boss on this mission which MI6 and Bond know is a trap to kill Bond, and Rosa speaks sharply to Tatiana and it's even hinted that shes attracted to Tatiana.  It's not hard to see that this lovely woman Tatiana will not only fall in love with Bond as a part of her job, but make good on her story that she needs rescuing.  Let me put it another way if I was Tatiana, between hunky James Bond and a toad like Rosa Kelbb, yeah I think I would head Bond's way too.

Tatiana has a very natural beauty to her, nothing flashy, nothing out loud it's all on display in her normal clothes and make up.

Tatiana isn't a damsel either.  She may need rescuing, but we're not talking about the normal kind, she needs to get away from her life as she knows it.  She doesn't know it at first but when Bond comes into her life, she is instantly smitten with him and comes to love Bond, even through thick and thin when things don't go right.  Towards the end of the movie, I really got the feeling that Bond and Tatiana also had real chemistry together.  Other then a few other instances, I can't really think of other times Bond and the leading lady had chemistry together, especially as well as they do here.

A very beautiful lady that has chemistry with her lead

A sweet woman under the ugly thumb of oppression. Her bedroom meeting with Bond is one of two scenes potential Bond/Bond Girls must have together in an audition.
