London: Screen siren Marilyn Monroe`s white halterneck dress which floated up over a subway grate in `The Seven Year Itch` has been voted the most iconic screen outfit of all time.

The blonde bombshell`s billowing frock from the 1955 film has been named the favourite in a survey conducted by the British Heart Foundation, reported Daily Express.

The romantic comedy starred Tom Ewell as a publishing executive who is infatuated with Marilyn`s character `The Girl` and watches as her dress flutters as a train passes below ground.

In second place was Dorothy`s gingham dress and ruby slippers, worn by Judy Garland in 1939 classic `The Wizard Of Oz`.

Olivia Newton-John`s tight black leather trousers and red mules, which she wore for the fairground scenes at the end of `Grease`, made in 1979, came in at number three.

Original Bond girl Ursula Andress`s white bikini from `Dr No` and Audrey Hepburn`s stylish black dress and pearls in `Breakfast At Tiffany`s` also made it into the top five.

`Baywatch`s red swimming costume, Michael Jackson`s red leather `Thriller` suit and animated Jessica Rabbit`s plunging red evening gown in `Who Framed Roger Rabbit`? were in the top 10.
