LONDON - Actress Marilyn Monroe has been voted the greatest blonde of all time by, an online market research company.

The legend has beaten a host of modern beauties, including Cameron Diaz, Madonna and Scarlett Johansson.

“Marilyn Monroe has always been known for her iconic blonde hair,” quoted a spokesperson from the company as saying.

“But it’s amazing to think that even now, almost half a century after her death, she has still beaten modern blondes to the top spot.
