French actress Brigitte Bardot has been voted the most stylish woman of all time.
French actress Brigitte Bardot has been voted the most stylish woman of all time in a new UK-wide poll.
“She was the pin-up girl for a golden age and has never been forgotten in France.
The 1960′s film star outscored a bevy of beauties, including a number of dazzling British female style icons, to land the crown as the world’s most stylish woman.
She polled almost three out of every 10 votes cast (29.5%) in the nationwide poll of 3,000 Brits across the UK by iconic orange soft drink Orangina.
Legendary English rose and Hollywood icon, Elizabeth Taylor, who sadly died this year, came a very close second, with just a few percentage points between her and Bardot.
Bardot, the former fashion model, actress and singer, is now aged 76 and is a world-renowned animal rights activist. But in her 1960′s heyday she was lauded across the world as the epitome of glamorous French style, with her dress sense and iconic hairstyle copied in shops, fashion houses and hair salons in across the globe.
Famous French women such as fashion queen Coco Chanel, actresses such as Juliette Binoche, Catherine Deneuve and Emmanuelle Béart, and former model now president’s wife Carla Bruni, have helped establish French femmes as the leading lights in the global style stakes, according to those polled in the national study.
Paris also won the vote for the world’s most stylish city too, beating Milan into second place, New York into third and London into fourth.
Factum is that she still ranks higher in style terms than some of Britain’s won modern style queens says everything.”
