The late ‘Breakfast At Tiffany’s’ actress Audrey Hepburn has topped a list of the most stylish Britons of all time.

And former footballer David Beckham has triumphed over his fashion designer wife.

Beckham is the highest-placed man, in third place, just one slot below Diana, Princess of Wales.

But his wife, Spice Girl-turned-designer Victoria Beckham, ranks lower in ninth position, despite her huge success with her fashion line.

Former 007 star Sean Connery and singer David Bowie are the only other men in the top 10, in seventh and eighth place.

Kate Middleton (fourth), model Twiggy (fifth) and Tudor monarch Elizabeth I (sixth) complete the list.

The research — 2,000 Britons were surveyed for OnePoll — also found that people believe women over 30 should avoid hot pants, mini skirts and tube tops.
