London: Veteran actress Helen Mirren has been named the top style icon for women over 50 in a new poll carried out by clothing company CC.
   
The 66-year-old fashionable actress, claimed the accolade after clothing brand quizzed 1,000 women for the poll and they believe the results show that "age isn't a barrier to style or confidence", as reported.
   
"These results show that age really isn't a barrier to style or confidence. In fact, it can be quite the opposite.
   
"Dame Helen Mirren has as much style, grace and elegance off screen as she does on it and is a fitting icon for the women of her generation. All too often we are bombarded with images of youth and temporary trends, so it's great to see such a varied list filled with women of real class," a spokesperson said.
   
A host of famously fashionable veterans completed the top five including model Twiggy, 62, 'Absolutely Fabulous' star Joanna Lumley, 65, 63-year-old singer Lulu and Dame Judi Dench, 77.
