Audrey Hepburn Tops Poll of 'Most Naturally Beautiful'

June, 2004 - Film icon Audrey Hepburn has been deemed the most naturally beautiful woman ever in a poll of beauty experts. The diminutive star of Breakfast at Tiffany's was chosen by beauty and fashion editors, make-up artists, model agencies and photographers. They had to choose their top 10 beautiful women from a list of 100 compiled by water company Evian. U.S. film star Liv Tyler and Australian actress Cate Blanchett were voted second and third. Tomb Raider star Angelina Jolie and the actress-turned-princess Grace Kelly completed the top five, while Princess Diana was placed 12th. The women were chosen for their "embodiment of natural beauty, healthy living, beautiful on the inside and out, with great skin and a natural glow to their personality, as well as their complexion", Evian said. "Audrey Hepburn is the personification of natural beauty," said Elle beauty director Rosie Green. "She has a rare charm and inner beauty that radiates when she smiles. Her skin looks fresh in all her films and her personality really shines through as someone warm and lively." Hepburn was included in the top 10 by more than three-quarters of the beauty experts surveyed.

The politics of thin
Review: We are bombarded with images of skinny people and yet the planet is groaning under our burgeoning weight. How can something as natural as eating and drinking be so complicated? The new year has begun and all over the world people are standing on their bathroom scales making resolutions to lose weight. Try this calculation: divide your weight in kilos by your height in metres squared: if you score over 25 you are overweight; if you score over 30 you are obese; over 40, morbidly so.




New York Cabbies Discover Politeness

It is years since crime was rampant in New York and Times Square was a seedy den of sex shops and drug dealing.

The alarming news is contained in the annual report published by New York's taxi and limousine commission, which says that complaints from the public about drivers' rudeness fell to the lowest figure for art least 10 years.
