GRACE KELLY’s 1955 Oscar gown leads a new glamour poll of stylish stars drawn up by luxury car giants Jaguar.
The company looked at hundreds of awards night outfits to find The Gorgeous 100 – men and women who define Academy Awards fashion and style.
Kelly’s EDITH HEAD-designed dress gave the HIGH SOCIETY star the edge just two weeks before she wed Monaco’s PRINCE RAINIER. She beat AUDREY HEPBURN’s 1954 look and MARLON BRANDO’s stylish tuxedo outfit also in 1955.
Brando was the only man in the top 10, but TOM CRUISE, ROBERT WAGNER, CHRISTOPHER REEVE, PAUL NEWMAN and CLARK GABLE all made it into the top 20.
In a related Jaguar list, MARILYN MONROE’s skirt-raising scene in THE SEVEN YEAR ITCH beat out the finales of GONE WITH THE WIND and CASABLANCA to land at the top of an Iconic Movie Moments list.
The top 10 gorgeous Oscar heroes and heroines are:
1. GRACE KELLY (1955) 2. AUDREY HEPBURN (1956) 3. MARLON BRANDO (1955) 4. ELIZABETH TAYLOR (1960) [b]5. NICOLE KIDMAN (1997)[/b] 6. SOPHIA LOREN (1999) 7. HALLE BERRY (2003) 8. CHARLIZE THERON (2000) 9. DIAHANN CARROLL (1968)
