Audrey Hepburn most naturally beautiful

Audrey Hepburn has been named the most naturally beautiful woman of all time.

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 a 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 Liv Tyler, Cate Blanchett, Angelina Jolie and 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."

It also showed Australian ladies dominating the nationality contest with three featuring in the Top Ten - Natalie Imbruglia, Cate Blanchett and Elle MacPherson. Princess Diana came in 12th.
