Hepburn was joined in the top five by American film star Liv Tyler, Australian actress Cate Blanchett, TOMB RAIDER star Angelina Jolie and the fifties icon PRINCESS GRACE KELLY.
ELLE beauty director ROSIE GREEN says, "Audrey Hepburn is the personification of natural beauty.

"Her skin looks fresh in all her films and her personality really shines through as someone warm and lively."
