The 60s icon topped a list of 100 chosen for their embodiment of 'natural beauty'.

Hepburn hit the peak of her fame in classic films such as My Fair Lady and Breakfast At Tiffany's. She was petite even by today's standards, with a 34A-20-34 figure Yet the English actress once said: 'I never thought I would land in pictures with a face like mine.'

Like fellow film star Grace Kelly, who was fifth, Hepburn never had plastic surgery. In later life, she campaigned tirelessly for children's charities and was a Unicef ambassador. She died in 1993 aged 63.

Actress Liv Tyler came second in the poll, while her Lord Of The Rings co-star, Cate Blanchett was third.

The list is dominated by actresses and models but Princess Diana came in 12th.

Laura Bacherach, beauty director of Company magazine, said: 'Beauty is not only about flawless features and perfect hair. You should celebrate your quirks.'
