Audrey holds her throne

23jun03

FEW would argue that Audrey Hepburn is one of the great style icons of all time. But should Jennifer Aniston, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Kate Moss really be mentioned in the same hallowed breath?

The latest style survey by fashion bible Vogue, conducted among 2500 readers who were allowed to vote for more than one famous face, says they should.

Hepburn, star of film classics such as Breakfast At Tiffany's and My Fair Lady, is still regarded as the ultimate style queen more than 40 years after her heyday.

The actress, who came top in the annual survey to find the most stylish woman, died of cancer in 1993 aged 63.

Last night a spokesman for Vogue, which has conducted the poll for five years, said: "It's fascinating Hepburn is still so highly regarded when it comes to style.

"People look at her as elegant and stylish -- she has an enduring beauty. They often remember her in those classic black-and-white pictures."

Hepburn won 29 per cent of the vote, two per cent ahead of Friends star Aniston. Victoria Beckham was third, with Catherine Zeta-Jones fourth. Isabella Rossellini was joint fifth, along with Kate Moss. Rossellini was voted the world's most stylish woman two years ago.

David Beckham was voted the most stylish man with 51 per cent of votes, ahead of Pierce Brosnan and Jude Law. Brad Pitt was fourth and Hugh Grant fifth.

But do you agree with the rest of the top ten?

1 Audrey Hepburn, 2 Jennifer Aniston, 3 Victoria Beckham, 4 Catherine Zeta-Jones, 5 Kate Moss, 6 Isabella Rossellini, 7 Nicole Kidman, 8 Madonna, 9 Princess of Wales, 10 Kylie Minogue.
