Beckham named 'greatest style icon'

Victoria Beckham has been hailed as the greatest fashion inspiration for UK women.

The Spice Girl-turned-designer topped a poll to find the greatest "style icon" as London Fashion Week drew to a close, ahead of runner-up actress Emma Watson.

In third place in the survey of 1,000 women for Hello! Fashion Monthly was model Kate Moss.

Seven out of the top 10 figures are British, with Alexa Chung, Cara Delevingne, her sister Poppy and Rita Ora also ranking highly.

Hilary Alexander, the editor-at-large for the magazine, said: "It's great to see such a high percentage of British women represented within Hello! Fashion Monthly's new list of the most stylish stars.

"As a nation, we are really dominating the industry at present, with top designers such as Vivienne Westwood, Burberry, Matthew Williamson, Stella McCartney, Victoria Beckham, Alice Temperley, Jenny Packham, Christopher Kane and Mary Katrantzou excelling on the global stage, so it is fantastic that our style ambassadors are also following suit."

The top 10 is as follows:

1. Victoria Beckham

2. Emma Watson

3. Kate Moss

4. Olivia Palermo

5. Alexa Chung

6. Cara Delevingne

7. Jessica Alba

8. Kim Kardashian
