Hilary Alexander, the editor-at-large for the magazine, said: "It's great to see such a high percentage of British women represented within Hello! Fashion Monthly's new list of the most stylish stars.

"As a nation, we are really dominating the industry at present, with top designers such as Vivienne Westwood, Burberry, Matthew Williamson, Stella McCartney, Victoria Beckham, Alice Temperley, Jenny Packham, Christopher Kane and Mary Katrantzou excelling on the global stage, so it is fantastic that our style ambassadors are also following suit."
