KEIRA KNIGHTLEY was named the number one women’s beauty icon of 2007 in a poll of 2,500 people held by UK chain Superdrug.
The Pirates of the Caribbean actress and the face of Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle perfume (above) beat TV presenter Kelly Brook and supermodel Kate Moss to win the greatest share of votes.
All 10 of the women named as top beauty icons in the Superdrug poll are British.
Glamour model Katie Price, a.k.a. Jordan, came just ahead of Paris Hilton to get the number 10 slot.
Superdrug beauty director Katherine Le Clerc said, ‘The top 10 beauty icons list shows that today there is room for everyone’s idea of true beauty.
‘From the aloof glamour of Keira Knightley and Victoria Beckham’s high-maintenance gloss to the fresh-faced youthful looks of Fearne Cotton, Holly Willoughby and Gemma Atkinson.’
Kate Moss, 33, is the oldest woman in the top 10 followed by Victoria Beckham, Superdrug said.
The survey was carried out by market researchers 72point in December.
These are, in order, the top beauty icons of 2007 as named in the Superdrug poll:

Kate Moss
Victoria Beckham

Keira Knightley’s Atonement dress voted best ?lm costume - cyrano - 01-24-2008 06:51 AM

It’s 2008 and two of the three Lucire ‘Insider’ entries are about Keira Knightley. It looks like 2007 was very much Miss Knightley’s year, if all these polls are anything to go by.

From the Press Association: ‘The emerald green dress worn by Keira Knightley in Atonement has been voted the best ?lm costume of all time.
‘The bias-cut, backless silk gown had fashion editors raving when it ?rst appeared on screen last year.
‘Knightley’s character, Cecilia Tallis, wore it during a pivotal scene in Joe Wright’s period drama, which is tipped for Oscar nominations.’
The survey was done for Sky Movies and British InStyle. Following Knightley’s dress were:

white dress worn by Marilyn Monroe, in The Seven Year Itch;
little black dress worn by Audrey Hepburn, in Breakfast at Tiffany’s;
skin-tight pants worn by Olivia Newton-John, in Grease;
blue gown worn by Kate Winslet, in Titanic;
tie and waistcoat combination worn by Diane Keaton, in Annie Hall;
satin corset worn by Nicole Kidman, in Moulin Rouge;
stockings and bowler hat worn by Liza Minnelli, in Cabaret;
gown worn by Cate Blanchett, in Elizabeth;
dresses worn by Vivien Leigh, in Gone with the Wind.

Ian Lewis, director of Sky Movies, said, ‘There’s no doubt that Keira Knightley’s dress in Atonement created a massive stir this year, so it will be interesting to see whether it attains this stand-along iconic status in years to come.’
Our view: probably not. As meritorious as the ?lm is, as well as the original book by Ian McEwan, Atonement hasn’t had the level of promotion some of the others with iconic dresses have had.
