Who is a style queen and who should sack the stylist?

Best dressed: Helen Mirren

Say what you like about Helen Mirren, but she's never been afraid to flaunt it. Who could forget her Lady in Red moment in that fabulous bikini?

The body that launched a thousand diets ... even if she does swear that it was all down to a flattering camera angle.

And she's got it oh-so-right yet again.

The scoop-neck, long-sleeved dress looks demure but just manages to skim every curve. She's accessorised it perfectly with an award from the Palm Springs Film Festival.

With three movies to be released this year and a Golden Globe nomination, it seems that we'll be seeing a lot of Ms Mirren on the red carpet in 2010.

Let's hope she continues her winning streak.

Worst dressed: Esther Rantzen

We may be in the midst of the big freeze, but really that's no excuse for this get-up. Choosing to wear such an ill-fitting pin-striped suit is bad enough, but combining it with that coat is truly the mark of the colour blind.

As for the stumpy shoes, words fail us. Almost. And this woman claims to represent the masses. I don't think so ...

Oh Esther, we know you're canvassing for votes and you'll go to extraordinary lengths to get ahead, but you can relax, you've topped this poll by a landslide.
