Beautiful, talented and sophisticated – these are the attributes that put Audrey Hepburn at the top of our survey of most beautiful women that we conducted to celebrate the start of July Beauty Month.
2000 people voted in our survey to find the top beauty icons. Topping the poll with 13% of the vote is Audrey Hepburn. While Cheryl Cole is clearly our 21st century sweetheart with 12% of the vote, old school glamour prevails with Marilyn Monroe in at third place (8%). Plus beating love rival Jennifer Aniston into the top five is Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie (6%).
The top ten QVC Beauty Icons are:
1. Audrey Hepburn (13%)
2. Cheryl Cole (12%)
3. Marilyn Monroe (8%)
4. Angelina Jolie (6%)
5. Grace Kelly (5%)
6. Scarlett Johansson (4%)
7. Halle Berry (4%)
8. Princess Diana (3%)
9. Kelly Brook (3%)
10. Jennifer Aniston (2%)
Narrowly missing the top ten were Kylie Minogue, Beyonce Knowles and Audrey Tatou.
Immortalising beauty icons in make-up
From this survey, we asked super stylish illustrator Daisy de Villeneuve to create portraits of the top four beauty icons… in make-up! She used products including Smashbox eyeliner, OPI nail varnish, Bobbi Brown lipstick and Benefit mascara and each portrait was set with a generous spray of La Coupe hairspray! See how she made them on our new YouTube channel.
The make-up portraits will be auctioned by QVC with net proceeds being donated to Breast Cancer Care.
