Swinging sixties space heroine BARBARELLA has been hailed the sexiest sci-fi babe of all time.

The scantily-clad intergalactic beauty - played by Jane Fonda in the 1968 space-age film - topped a prestigious poll commissioned by movie magazine FILM REVIEW.

The magazine says, "Getting dressed in zero gravity has never looked as good as the opening sequence of this classic sci-fi film."

And describes Barbarella as, "A Sixties icon who was sweetness itself, and yet also the sexiest screen heroine ever to sport a transparent vest."

Ex-supermodel-turned-movie-babe Milla Jovovich took the runner-up spot in the poll for her portrayal of the scantily clad LEELOO in the 1997 hit THE Fifth Element opposite action man Bruce Willis.

And in third place was leggy Kristanna Loken for her role as killer robot T-X in Terminator 3: THE RISE OF THE MACHINES.
