Through the years, America has had no shortage of great beauties, and to celebrate July 4th, StyleList readers have picked the fairest of them all, in our quest to pinpoint the "Most Beautiful American Woman of all Time."

America's Beauty Queen is, drumroll, please, Grace Kelly.

Over 52,000 StyleList readers voted on a list of 24 contenders hand culled from old and new Hollywood, and an overwhelming 28 percent of the vote went to Grace Kelly.

Jaclyn Smith was first runner up with 10 percent of the vote, followed by Halle Berry with eight percent, Ava Gardner with six percent and Marilyn Monroe, Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Aniston and Rita Hayworth tied for fifth place with five percent each.

StyleList readers are enamored with the Princess of Monaco -- the idea for this contest sprang from the indignant feedback we received after comparing Charlene Wittstock, Prince Albert of Monaco's new fiancée, to Kelly, who was his mother.

"She was as gracious as she was beautiful," says commenter Joe Spelta. "She represented America splendidly."

"Grace Kelly is above and beyond," voiced another commenter.

In celebration of this American beauty, we put together a gallery of Grace Kelly's most gorgeous style moments, below. And for more gorgeous screen sirens, check out out collection of the most iconic bathing suits of all time.
