Elizabeth Taylor was certainly a classic actress to be reckoned with. She was known for being bold, sexy, and a spitfire with her roles. She played many lead roles in Tennessee Williams' adapted films, Cleopatra, and, most famously, was in the film Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf. She was a fashion icon and and a Hollywood starlet still today. Elizabeth Banks is a more modern actress. She's starred in such classics as Wet, Hot, American Summer, Zach and Miri Make a Porno, and the Hunger Games trilogy. Her directorial debut with Pitch Perfect 2 made about $69 million at the box office opening weekend, which is a record for a first time director.

And, of course, Queen Elizabeth II is on this list. She is the oldest living monarch to date. She has also been known for wearing intereting, funny hats. God save the Queen.
