Ask pretty much anyone to cite a fiercely fab star and expect to get Helen Mirren as an answer.

So we weren’t surprised to learn that in a new poll conducted by a U.K. clothing brand, the 66-year-old actress was named Britain’s top style icon by women older than age 50, as reported by London’s Daily Mail.

Mirren was followed by Twiggy, Absolutely Fabulous star Joanna Lumley, Lulu and Judi Dench, in that order.

And even though she’s a young 37, Victoria Beckham landed at number six on the list, with Elle Macpherson, Carol Vorderman, Carole Middleton and Nigella Lawson rounding out the top 10, according to the newspaper.

“Victoria Beckham has proven she carries universal appeal and her image over the past few years has altered from high glamour to a more classic look which appeals to women of all ages,” a spokesperson for CC clothing tells the Daily Mail. “And 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.”

Her generation? Please. Try any generation.
