Angelina is named beauty icon of the decade
Tuesday 29 December 2009
Angelina Jolie beat Jennifer Aniston to the top spot of a poll to decide the top 20 beauty icons of the decade.
The Tomb Raider star’s luscious lips and flawless skin have seen women across the world envy her and millions of men want to be with her.
Her stunning looks even helped her bag Hollywood superstar Brad Pitt, after the pair starred together in the film Mr and Mrs Smith.
As well as appearing in several box office hits during the past decade, Angelina has also become a mum-of-six after adopting three children and giving birth to another three with Pitt.
The poll was carried out by Onepoll for Superdrug, who questioned 3000 British women.
Second place in the poll went to Angelina’s love rival Jennifer Aniston, who was still married to Pitt when the couple first met.
After her iconic hairstyle in the 1990s, the Friends actress has carried on wowing people with her sleek hair and flawless beauty throughout the past ten years.
Australian pop princess Kylie Minogue came third in the poll of Brits followed by Welsh actress Catherine Zeta Jones.
Cheryl Cole topped off an amazing decade by being voted into fifth place.
Since winning her place in girl group Girls Aloud in 2002, the Geordie beauty has seen her career soar, finishing the decade as the nation’s golden girl thanks to her role as X-Factor judge, she was named Beauty Icon of 2009 in Superdrug’s research last year.
As well as marrying Chelsea footballer Ashley Cole, she has also become the high-profile face of L’Oreal.
Actress Scarlett Johansson was at six, followed by English rose Keira Knightly who was named Beauty Icon of 2008 in Superdrug’s research.
American superstar Beyonce was eighth while Armageddon star Liv Tyler was at nine.
Oscar winning actress Halle Berry completed the top ten.
Other stars to feature in the top 20 include Titanic star Kate Winslet, Transformer beauty Megan Fox and This Morning presenter Holly Willoughby.
A spokesman for Superdrug added: “It is great to see that the list is packed with women of all ages and colouring in the top twenty, from the ageless beauty Joanna Lumley to new national sweet heart Cheryl Cole.
“But the message from our stores for 2010 is you don’t have to be a film star or celebrity to be a beauty icon. Every single woman in Britain can walk into their local Superdrug and pick up products that will give them the confidence to turn heads on the high street. Unfortunately, we can’t promise that any of them will end up marrying Brad Pitt.”
