Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner both featured. But the top celebrities aren't who we thought...
Today, the results of a poll to crown the biggest style icon of the last century have been revealed, and the results may surprise you…
British model Cara Delevinge made it to the top spot, followed by Marilyn Monroe at 2nd place.
Of course, 24-year-old Cara inspires style every day. Whether we’re obsessing over her thick brows, grunge outfits or tattoos, Cara is one of our biggest style crushes of all time.
We can’t get over this outfit.
Kim Kardashian took the third spot, and even further down the list was Kylie Jenner, taking 7th. Kind of shocking, no?
Kylie and Kim have triggered pretty much every trend in the book for the past few years. Saying that, it’s good to see a mixture of icons from different time periods in the top three.
Marco Robinson, co-founder of NKDb, said, ‘It’s great to see a mixture of current celebrities and icons from decades gone by in the top 10, proving that women find make-up inspiration from numerous avenues.’
The poll was conducted by cosmetics brand NKDb, who asked 1000 18-85-year-olds in the UK to name their top three ‘style icons’.
In addition to the Top Ten Style Icons, NKDb also found that 66% of those polled said make-up helped people ‘stand out from the crowd’ and 48% said make-up ‘enhanced their natural beauty’.

One member of the public, Paula Warrender, 31, shared their reaction to the poll with The Mirror, saying, ‘I don’t see how Cara can beat Marilyn Monroe or Audrey Hepburn – it’s totally crazy, they were both complete and utter style icons…’
We definitely believe Cara is a style icon in her own right and we happen to love those brows!
