Mirror Mirror on the wall – who is the coolest of them all?

Kylie has it and so does the David Beckham and his posh wife Victoria but who else makes the cool school according to a list compiled by the Brand Council of the UK? Sexy Soccer sensation David Beckham has been voted this years coolest celebrity with ex-boy band funkster Justin Timberlake taking out second. Followed then by the coolest chicks of them all, Victoria Beckham who came in at third place and Aussie songbird Kylie Minogue took out fourth place. At the other end of the age scale, even the Queen and Sean Connery apparently also possess it. According to the Brand Council, cool is not something you can manufacture, while they do state that there is no strict definition, being cool has something to do with being innovative, irreverent and confident enough to do your own thing. How cool are they?
