Audrey Hepburn's little black dress has been voted the greatest female screen outfit of all time.

The Givenchy gown which the late actress accessorised with a string of pearls and long black gloves in the opening scenes of the 1961 iconic movie 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' is the most popular dress of all time, according to a new survey by Lovefilm.

Helen Cowley, editor of Lovefilm magazine, said: "Audrey Hepburn has truly made that little black dress a fashion staple which has stood the test of time despite competition from some of the most stylish females around."

The screen beauty's dress beat off competition from other iconic outfits such as Ursula Andress' white bikini in James Bond film, 'Dr No', which came fourth, and 'Sex And The City' star Sarah Jessica Parker's silk wedding gown, which came 10th in the poll.

Audrey also made another entry in the poll at number six with the long white dress, hat and parasol her character Eliza Doolittle wore to the races in 'My Fair Lady'.
