With 2010 upon us, UK-based health and beauty retail giant Superdrug held a poll to find out which female celeb people thought was the 'beauty icon of the decade'. Here are the results!

1. Angelina Jolie

The Hollywood siren and Brad Pitt's partner nabbed the top spot, with her chocolate hair, chiselled features and lithe bod. So Angie is officially Beauty Icon Of The Decade -- and you'll be surprised to see who came a close second!

Yup, the pretty Aniston lost out narrowly to Jolie yet again. But hey, at 40, we still think she's drop-dead gorgeous.

Bootylicious in every sense of the word (she even sang a song about it!), popstar Beyonce's curves and sultry sexiness saw her to the Number Eight spot.

And rounding off the top 10 is another sexy mamma. Berry is now 43, but she certainly doesn't look it. And if you recall her smokin' orange bikini from Die Another Day, you'll agree that one look was iconic in itself!

Chic celebrity chef Nigella also made it to the top 20 -- probably through healthy eating! She is also a successful food writer and has appeared on several television cookery shows, in addition to hosting her own series.

Although Esquire Magazine deemed her Sexiest Woman Alive in 2009, Beckinsale didn't rank too high when it came to the Beauty Icon of the Decade. Still, she made it to 15 in this survey and it's easy to see why.

Angelina's doppelganger didn't quite come within 10 ranks of her, but Megan is certainly one of the most gorgeous young Hollywood stars of today, which is why she grabbed 16th position.

She may play a desperate housewife on screen, but off it, Latino lovely Eva has men swooning over her dusky appeal. The petite actress proves that good things come in small packages!

It was heartening to note that timeless beauty played a part in this poll. British actress Lumley may be 63, but she has aged so gracefully, she still ranked at 18 -- beating out two younger famous faces!

And finally, rounding off the list is South African siren Charlize, who's drop-dead gorgeous and an Academy Award winner to boot. No arguments on either count!
