#4 - Penelope Cruz

With her dark eyes and hot accent and the seductive and sometimes playful Spanish actress, Penelope Cruz became famous internationally when she played the motion-sick heroine in the 2000 film Woman on Top. She was already a star in Spain: she had a major role in the Oscar-winning 1992 film Belle Epoque. She is the eldest of three: her brother Eduardo, is eleven years younger and a singer; her sister Mónica, who looks very much like her, is three years younger and enjoying a career as an actor and a flamenco dancer. During the time she was 15, Penelope Cruz, found her true passione after winning a talent audition in the midst of 300 other girls. Following this early success she landed several roles on Spanish TV shows and music videos, paving the way for a career in films. One of her first appearances on television was in a music video from a Spanish band called Mecano.

She made her big screen debut with the feature film, ‘Jamon, Jamon’ in 1992. She played the role of the female protagonist, Silvia. The film met with favourable response. She was as much appreciated for her talent as for her daring nudity in the film, which made her a major sex symbol overnight. When she was at the age of 26 she made her first appearance in PEOPLE's Most Beautiful issue and the following year becomes the face of designer Ralph Lauren's brand. In 2006, she also represents L'Oreal for reportedly $2 million a year. She is married to Spanish actor Javier Bardem and has two children.

#6 - Elizabeth Taylor

The phrase ‘talented beauty’ best describes Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor and her life. While it was her stunningly beautiful face and magnetic appeal that drew her to the world of show business, her prolific career that spanned over six decades was due to her great performance, exceptional talent and inherent creativity. A performer by birth, acting was an intrinsic part of the personality of this beautiful actress. Her charming blue and yet sometimes purple eyes made all the jaws drop to the floor when seeing her. Interestingly, the Hollywood giants, Universal and MGM both were willing to place her under contract due to her angelic looks and striking appeal. However, Universal edged past MGM and secured her by offering a seven year contract without even waiting for a screen test!

Although she made no movies for the next couple of years, in 1963, she made history for earning $3 million to star in the movie 'Cleopatra'. This was also the film where she met her fifth husband, Richard Burton. After Cleopatra, she earned raves for her role as Martha in 1966's 'Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf' ? The role as an unkempt loudmouth was considered by many to be her finest performance. It won her another Oscar. In May 2000, along with Julie Andrews, she was made a Dame by Queen Elizabeth II.

The legendary star was also suffering from scoliosis, a congenital disease that had twisted her spine so badly that in recent months she had been in constant pain and used a wheelchair for appearances. In October 2004 she underwent spinal surgery to repair seven compression fractures in her spine. In early 2011, Taylor again experienced heart problems. She was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Hospital in that February for congestive heart failure. On March 23, 2011, Taylor passed away from the condition.

      I couldn't believe just how astonishingly beautiful is Dita Von Teese when she made her debut in Burlesque. I wonder what she is doing now!

      In my adolescent years we had a bevy of beautiful actresses and the boys had a game where you had to guess the name of one by her initials, for example M.M. namely Marilyn Monroe or D.D. for Doris Day. When the film 'Boy on a dolphin' was screen on T.V. one night every lad in the school ground was ecstatic over Sophia Loren who was yet to come into her prime in the early to mid 60's and is still a 'stunner' to this very day. Miss Loren was particularly apt at portraying Queens and Empresses as she had that regal and commanding bearing for those roles.

      Quite rightly so! Admitedly, i shouldn't have wandered off 'on a tangent' nominating my own favourite most beautiful women in the world. The top 10 from here are definately well endowed with the beauty rating. I vividly recall in my teen years Elizabeth Taylor being acclaimed as the most beautiful woman in the world but not only that, she just got more beautiful as her career went on. Liz did develope problems with being overweight (for a time) and also some substance abuse but in her matronly years she did make a 'come back' as a mature diva and i think, better than ever. Katrina Kaif i did mention previously. Here we have an actress model with exotic 'good looks' of the Hindi lady combined with a confidant Western style polish.

      Yes I'm aware of who Shilpa Shety is, though she is also beautiful, I picked these women due to a personal taste. Katrina Kaif is and always will be a beautiful down to earth actress/model.

      Ian Stuart Robertson 20 months ago from London England

      In my mention of Angela Rippon and Gillian Anderson i omitted to recognise the no. 1 placing of Katrina Kaif on this page. Though unfamiliar with her career, i certainly am aware of Katrina now. The Bollywood actress Shilpa Shety certainly 'made her mark' whilst in London. In fact she now divides her time between residing just outside of London and commuting to India for her contractual commitments.

      Yes Gillian Anderson is beautiful and she even looked better in Hannibal. I've never heard of Angela Rippon so I had to look her up...

      Elizabeth Taylor sure is lovely and so are all the other women on this page.

      Ian Stuart Robertson 20 months ago from London England

      Continuing on from the previous posting, i wish to nominate Gillian Anderson as a most beautiful of the North American continent. Not having seen much of the 1990's X files though but the photo stills of her showed classic 'good looks'. At a recent premiere staged in London's west end, Ms Anderson was in attendance and her beauty has certainly not faded.

      As there are 5 continents on the planet and a number of island groups in as many oceans i propose that our top ten be a representative of each. To keep it currently to the 21st century with the greatest of respect to Elizabeth Taylor though. It would be ideal for the candidate to be mature rather than a celebrity starting out on her career. This shows that she has already made her 'mark' in life. As i currently live in 'olde London towne' i'd propose a lady of English, Welsh, Scottish or Irish background. Unfortunately there are regions in these countries where women are blessed with absolute 'good looks' due to genetics and the rustic life style. They are also well educated, ambitious and can articulate with eloquent speech. The news media tend to get a lot of female presenters who exude charm, poise and confidence. One such is Angela Rippon.

      Ian Stuart Robertson 20 months ago from London England

      No doubting in my mind at all that the women mentioned here are beautiful to say the least! I'm not going to cast my vote on any particular celebrity as i regard all mature women have the quality of 'beauty' however some are blessed with allure whilst the luckier have charisma. During the 1960's Elizabeth Taylor did hold the undisputed title of The most beautiful woman in the world.
