KEIRA KNIGHTLEY was named the number one women’s beauty icon of 2007 in a poll of 2,500 people held by UK chain Superdrug.

The Pirates of the Caribbean actress and the face of Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle perfume (above) beat TV presenter Kelly Brook and supermodel Kate Moss to win the greatest share of votes.

All 10 of the women named as top beauty icons in the Superdrug poll are British.

Glamour model Katie Price, a.k.a. Jordan, came just ahead of Paris Hilton to get the number 10 slot.

Superdrug beauty director Katherine Le Clerc said, ‘The top 10 beauty icons list shows that today there is room for everyone’s idea of true beauty.

‘From the aloof glamour of Keira Knightley and Victoria Beckham’s high-maintenance gloss to the fresh-faced youthful looks of Fearne Cotton, Holly Willoughby and Gemma Atkinson.’

Kate Moss, 33, is the oldest woman in the top 10 followed by Victoria Beckham, Superdrug said.

The survey was carried out by market researchers 72point in December.

These are, in order, the top beauty icons of 2007 as named in the Superdrug poll:

Keira Knightley
Kelly Brook
Kate Moss
Victoria Beckham
Fearne Cotton
Holly Willoughby
Gemma Atkinson
Alesha Dixon
Lily Allen
