    Audrey Hepburn 'most beautiful woman of all time'
    June 1, 2004

    Film legend Audrey Hepburn was yesterday named the most naturally beautiful woman of all time by a panel of experts.

    Three Australians featured in the first 10 out of 100 beauties, actress Cate Blanchett, who came in third, singer Natalie Imbruglia and model Elle Macpherson.

    Princess Diana came in 12th.

    Hepburn, the star of Roman Holiday and Breakfast at Tiffany's, topped the poll of beauty editors, make-up artists, fashion editors, model agencies and fashion photographers who were asked to choose their top 10 beauties from the list of 100 compiled by the drinks firm Evian.

    The women were chosen for their "embodiment of natural beauty, healthy living, beautiful on the inside and out, with great skin and a natural glow to their personality, as well as their complexion", Evian said.

    Hepburn was joined in the top five by current US film star Liv Tyler, Blanchett, Tomb Raider star Angelina Jolie and the '50sicon turned princess Grace Kelly.

    "Audrey Hepburn is the personification of natural beauty," said Elle beauty director Rosie Green.

    "She has a rare charm and inner beauty that radiates when she smiles. Her skin looks fresh in all her films and her personality really shines through as someone warm and lively."

    More than 76 per cent of the beauty experts who voted in the survey mentioned Hepburn in their top 10.

    The survey also showed that while 32 per cent of the icons placed in the No. 1 spot by panel members were blondes, 22 per cent redheads and 46 per cent brunettes.

    "People who are confident without a scrap of make-up and look healthy, happy and glowing, seem like natural beauties to me," said Eleonore Crompton, of Heat magazine.

    I don't think I've ever seen a picture of Audrey Hepburn, how pathetic is that?

    But, anyway, of that top 10, the only one who I agree with being in the top 10 is Angelina Jolie. Liv Tyler's cute, no argument, but number 2??? Of all time!?

    And, I'm not trying to be mean here, but Princess Di never did much for me. Of course, we've discussed my preferences in women, and she is pretty much the polar opposite of everything I like (except for the English accent).

    I thought the list was pretty neat. I was hearing about it this morning on the radio.

    At first, I was like, "What about Marilyn?" But then I remembered they said naturally beautiful. ;)

    I was glad to see this. Dido is not only beautiful, but an underappreciated artist, her last CD (yes, I own it, shut up) was probably one of the best pop/folk albums of last year.

    She's a two-face though, sometimes she'll be gorgeous, other times she looks kinda sketchy.

    Yay! Though Dunst and Holmes would've been waaaaaaaay higher if I had done this list. And Kiera would've been in the top 5.

    Most of that list would not qualify as 'natural'. Somewhere along the way they have had a knife plunged into their face or legs or rear....somewhere they have had a needle stuck into their lines...or a pair of silicone bags to boost things a bit...
    Liv Tyler??? Good heavens.

    You know.....I used to travel a bit and I found the most natural and beautiful women on the planet where from Africa....Ethiopia to be exact. Have you seen these women? Nevermind the Hollywood plastic doll organization - or stepford wife type! Give any male or female a good surgeon and you could be the perfect Barbie or Ken.
