(CBS) - The late screen icon Elizabeth Taylor had a strong ability to look pretty in pictures, and it turns out she's the best at it.

The Hollywood star, known for her beauty and glamour, has been voted the "Most Photogenic Celebrity of All Time," according to a poll conducted by MyMemory.com.

Taylor, who died in March of congestive heart failure at age 79, beat out actress Jennifer Aniston and soccer star David Beckham, who placed second and third place respectively, for the top spot.

"It was very interesting to see a member of Hollywood royalty, Elizabeth Taylor, clinch the top spot as the most photogenic celebrity of all time; but I think this proves that she will forever be remembered for her timeless beauty," website co-founder Rebecca Huggler said of the survey, which polled over 1,500 members of the British public.

Along with Taylor, a few other Hollywood icons were featured on the list including Audrey Hepburn (No. 5), Marilyn Monroe (No. 8), and James Dean (No. 10).

Actress Megan Fox ranked at No. 4, beating Angelina Jolie, in seventh place.

Jolie's longtime partner Brad Pitt narrowly missed out on the top ten, along with actress Freida Pinto.

"It will be interesting to see how this list changes over the years, as there are a lot of classic celebrities in there who have been famous or passed away many years ago; proving that photographs stay with us forever," Huggler added.
