Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe has been dead nearly 50 years but her body continues to inspire the crowds. According to a survey conducted in England by 'Debenhams' Store locator, Marilyn Monroe has been named the Top Beach Body Of All Time -- she beats Victoria Beckham (ranking 22nd), Kate Moss (21st) and Miranda Kerr.

Among the 20 most beautiful women in bikinis, Christina Hendricks placed second and Kim Kardashian 4th. We still find Scarlett Johansson, Kelly Brook, Beyonce, Rihanna or Elle Macpherson on the list of top 20.

This suggests that plumper women have rated again and size zero might be on the decline while there is no ideal age to please people as Helen Mirren, 66, is seventh in the top, "Our results tell us women that being the best on the beach, this is no longer to be the thinnest or the youngest," said Debenhams spokeswoman Sasha Nagalingam,reports DailyMail.

Last year, Kelly Brook was voted top of the best celebrity bikini bodies and Marilyn was second.

Here is this year's breakdown:

TOP 20:

  1. Marilyn Monroe
  2. Christina Hendricks
  3. Ursula Andress
  4. Kim Kardashian
  5. Tulisa Contostavlos
  6. Raquel Welch

Hmmm, a bag of chips, some donuts and cookies sound good right now, just don't look in the mirror at yourself in a bikini and you'll be just fine!
