Dean Is Coolest Icon

Fifties screen legend JAMES DEAN has been voted the coolest icon of all time.

ELVIS PRESLEY came in second place with STEVE McQUEEN a close third. The only women in the top 20 are MADONNA and AUDREY HEPBURN.

A spokesperson for Glenfiddich says, "The top three men have all been dead for years, which shows how young men can still be inspired by icons that weren't even around in their lifetime."
