Dame Helen Mirren has topped a list of Hotter Than Ever Women Over 50.

At the age of 65, the Oscar-winning actress has beaten numerous celebrities in their 50s.

Dame Helen, who turned heads after being snapped showing off her enviable figure in her swimming costume and wowed in a leopard print Dolce And Gabbana gown at last month's Arthur premiere, was named number one in the study by home shopping retailer for 50-plus women, isme.com.

The actress is hailed as a style icon and has told Vogue: "I think it's great, I'm so surprised by it. At my age, it's like: wow, that's so cool. I never thought that might happen. And I think of myself as sort of a bag lady, really. I wash up nice, but mostly I'm not very stylish."

The Prime Suspect star beat 54-year-old Sex And The City Star Kim Cattrall, 53-year-old Michelle Pfieffer and 52-year-old Madonna to be crowned the hottest woman over 50.

Model Twiggy, 61, and actress Joanna Lumley, 64, were named the second and third most stylish women in the survey, beating American stars such as Kim Basinger, Goldie Hawn, Jerry Hall, Jane Fonda and Sharon Stone, who all fell outside the top 10

Shout singer Lulu, 62, Kim Cattrall, and actress and director Emma Thompson, 52, were also voted into the top 10.
