Angelina Jolie tops poll as the decade's ultimate beauty queen

Angelina Jolie has been crowned the decade's ultimate beauty queen, pipping Jennifer Aniston to the top spot, who came in at number two.

The mother-of-six was named the Noughties' top beauty in a poll of 3,000 women by Superdrug. According to the research, Jolie topped the charts for her infamous bee-sting pout and tumbling dark locks, which have become the envy of women worldwide.

Steve Jebson, commercial director for Superdrug commented: 'Angelina Jolie is not a conventional beauty but her strong character shines through her fabulous features to give her a unique standing in the beauty world. It's worth noting that while everyone talks about Angelina's pout we find that its her long thick lustrous hair that really makes British women envious, as well as a figure made for red carpet posturing'

And it wasn't just Hollywood's finest catching the eye of the world's women. Cheryl Cole took her place at number five, Kylie Minogue rocked in at third and flying the flag for Wales, Catherine Zeta Jones came in fourth.

Scarlett Johansson, Keira Knightley, Beyonce Knowles, Liv Tyler and Halle Berry completed the top ten.
