The Breakfast at Tiffany`s star was chosen just ahead of fellow screen icon Grace Kelly.

The survey of 5000 women was carried out by New Woman magazine.
And it revealed that old-style glamour still has the edge over modern-day celebrities.

Sixties sex bomb Sophia Loren and movie legend Marilyn Monroe were also in the top five, alongside supermodel Cindy Crawford.

"When it comes to the most beautiful women of all time, head-turning, full-on glamour wins the day," said New Woman editor Helen Johnston.

"The women who top this list all possess classic, timeless beauty and they know how to show it off to the best effect. Women are now returning to the high maintenance, polished look because it makes them feel fabulous and they know men love it too."

Hepburn, who died in 1993, was the muse of designer Givenchy.

Her films include Roman Holiday (1953), Breakfast at Tiffany`s (1961) and My Fair Lady (1964).

Both Victoria Beckham and Coleen McLoughlin have cited Hepburn as their style icon.

But they are no match for her beauty in the eyes of the public - Beckham managed just 49th in the list while McLoughlin was 92nd.

Modern-day Hollywood stars in the top 10 were Angelina Jolie, Catherine Zeta Jones, Halle Berry and Scarlett Johansson.

The late Diana, Princess of Wales was in eighth place.
Supermodel Kate Moss just missed out on the top 10. Sienna Miller was 26th and Keira Knightley 35th.

Old-school Hollywood icons Rita Hayworth, Ingrid Bergman, Katharine Hepburn and Lauren Bacall were voted ahead of Cat Deeley, Teri Hatcher and Kelly Brook.

British stars in the list include Nigella Lawson, Joan Collins, Rachel Weisz, Charlotte Church and Carol Vorderman.

Prince William`s girlfriend Kate Middleton is in 77th place.
