Who's your classic Hollywood style icon?
8-12 points: No-fuss style à la Katharine Hepburn
Like this classy but practical lady, you love pants and flats and you favour a simple ponytail or loose bun over fancy hairdos. You're active, love walking (no stilettos for you) and don't want to be bogged down by accessories or anything too frou-frou. While you care about style, it's more important that your clothes look classic, not trendy.

13-22 points: Classic beauty à la Audrey Hepburn
Elegant and graceful, Audrey Hepburn had a style that was so timeless many women still try to copy her subtle sophistication today. You don't obsess about your clothing choices, rather you stick with classic combinations like tailored white shirts and well-fitting denim. You care about your looks, but often keep your beauty regime simple. A touch of blush, a stylish headscarf and big shades are often all you need before running out the door. Women admire your effortless chic!

23-29 points: Va-va-va-voom à la Marilyn Monroe
When you enter a room, people's heads turn. You love making a grand entrance and causing some whispers as you saunter by in your stilettos and racy cocktail dresses. You follow the trends and are always on top of what's hot in fashion. Who cares if it takes you two hours to get ready for a night out on the town? Looking this glamorous is what being a woman is all about!

30+ points: Go big or go home à la Elizabeth Taylor
Accessories, accessories and more accessories! You are the quintessential diamond icon. Whether they're real or fake, you love to adorn yourself with beautiful jewels. Bangles, big earrings, brooches, anything with colour reigns supreme in your wardrobe! You are very confident in your style choices and like to go against tradition. Many appreciate your unique and bold take on fashion.
