Ségolène at No 23. As a presidential candidate (or not anymore?), the ecologist Nocolas Hulot is classed the highest No 3. No.41 Jean-luc Delarue may drop off the list next time, after the incident he caused on the plane to Johannesburg.

What about Catherine Deneuve? What about Yves St. Laurent? Jean Moreau?

Only 50 places on the list -- some of those names come and go. There will be more political names on the next list, which will be published after the presidential election.
