    It was the Oscar-winning actress’ experimental fashion that awarded her the accolade with her looks dubbed ‘unexpected’ and ‘unparalleled’ by the magazine.

    Not even the royal’s Alexander McQueen or Jenny Packham creations could secure her the coveted top spot. Or that infamous big bouncy blow dry!
