Entertainment magazines come up with a list of some of the world’s most beautiful women every year. While beauty may easily come and go, there are women who’s beauty is simply timeless. We’ve prepared a list of some of the most beautiful women ever photographed.
Back in 1962, Sean Connery rocked the world with his legendary depiction of the suave and charismatic spy, James Bond. The MI6 agent is known for meeting and connecting with one lucky girl in every film, and Ursula Andress was one of them. The actress was the world’s first Bond girl.
Andress’ voice was actually dubbed in the film due to her Swiss-German accent, but that didn’t stop her from becoming one of the most famous actresses in Hollywood at the time. She later worked for Playboy magazine, posing in some very provocative shots. Quite a bold move in the ‘60s.
Not many actresses can claim that their biggest flaw is being too beautiful, but that’s exactly what happened to Vivien Leigh. The young and talented star was often overlooked when it came to her acting abilities, simply because people saw her first and foremost for her looks.
Her most famous film appearances to date were in 'Gone with the Wind' and 'A Streetcar Named Desire', which are some of the most iconic and legendary films from the 20th century. Unfortunately, the actress and performer died from tuberculosis in 1967, but her Hollywood legacy lives on even today.
Fans of Sharon Tate will forever remember her story as a tragic one. The talented and beautiful actress led a very troubled life, which included marrying famous director and fugitive sex-offender, Roman Polanski. In 1969, Tate was murdered in cold blood by members of the Manson Family.
What makes her death even more tragic is that the actress was due to give birth at the time, and was nearly nine months pregnant. She is still talked about in entertainment circles today, and is remembered for her astonishing beauty, supreme acting skills and horrendous fate.
While many women have dazzling looks, not many also have a seductive voice to match. Lauren Bacall shared both of these traits, and was named the 20th greatest female star of classic Hollywood cinema. In 1996, she received an Academy Award for her performance in 'The Mirror Has Two Faces'.
The actress was a staunch liberal Democrat, and devoted much of her public status to promote various political causes. She was also a model and often appeared in popular magazines such as Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue. The actress passed away in mid 2014, a month before her 90th birthday.
Barbara Eden was born in 1931 and remains a beloved personality in Hollywood even today. The actress is known for starring as "Jeannie" in the sitcom 'I Dream of Jeannie'. The show revolved around a 2,000-year-old genie (played by Eden) and an astronaut who falls in love with her.
Rumor has it that producers originally wanted a brunette for the show so that viewers would easily be able to tell the difference between it and its main competitor at the time - popular fantasy sitcom 'Bewitched'. However, they simply fell for Eden and just had to give her the role.
You may recall Claudia Cardinale from the original 'The Pink Panther' film, back in 1963. She is an Italian-Tunisian actress who appeared in some of the most highly-acclaimed European films of the '60s and the '70s. She originally rose to fame as “The Most Beautiful Italian Girl in Tunisia.”
Earlier in her career, the actress didn’t get to have her voice heard much, since it was often dubbed by other women. Eventually, her stardom grew to such levels that fans demanded to hear it! Cardinale is an avid women’s rights activist, and has been a UNESCO goodwill ambassador since 2000.
Fans of the beautiful actress Margot Robbie often compare her to Anita Ekberg, a Swedish actress who's best known for playing Sylvia in the Federico Fellini 1960 film, 'La Dolce Vita'. The actress was also a fashion model in her early years, which is no surprise, to say the least.
She competed in various modeling shows, from Miss Malmo to Miss Sweden, which she ended up winning. In 1951, Ekberg even won the Miss Universe crown. From there, she had to learn English to become an actress in America. The actress passed away in 2015, at the age of 83.
It's not every day that you see a woman who's as accomplished as Jaclyn Smith in so many fields. Smith is both an actress and a serious business woman. She is most known for starring as Kelly Garrett in the 'Charlie's Angels' TV show, which ran from 1976 until 1981.
The actress runs various brands of clothing and perfume, and has even launched a wig collection back in 2008. Despite her many accomplishments, one of the things Jaclyn Smith is best known for is her incredible beauty. She regularly graces the pages of magazines’ ‘World’s Most Beautiful Woman’ polls.
Natalia Nikolaevna Zakharenko was a three-time Oscar nominated actress before reaching 25, and proved to be one of the most promising actresses in Hollywood. The actress was born to Russian immigrant parents, and began appearing in films when she was just four years old.
The actress starred alongside James Dean in 'Rebel Without a Cause'. Tragically, both she and the actor later passed away in some unfortunate circumstances. At 43 years old, Wood was found dead after drowning off a weekend yacht trip to Santa Catalina with her husband and actor Christopher Walken.
French actress Sophie Marceau is best known for starring in the 1980 comedy film, 'La Boum'. The actress eventually became a serious star in European theaters, and quickly found herself in Hollywood circles. Marceau appeared in 'Braveheart' and was a Bond girl in 1999’s 'The World Is Not Enough'.
It’s rare to find a “most beautiful women” list that doesn’t feature Sophie Marceau. Marceau, however, doesn’t really understand what the fuss is all about, and claims that the way she sees it, she’s really not that beautiful at all. With all due respect, let’s agree to disagree, Sophie.
Ava Lavinia Gardner had to work extremely hard to become an actress, as she was often misunderstood for her heavy southern accent. She began acting in 1941, and appeared in small gigs before rising to prominence for her role in 1946's 'The Killers', based on a short story by Ernest Hemingway.
From there on, Gardner's career only grew, and in 1951 she even married the legendary Frank Sinatra. Unfortunately, after a lifetime of smoking and at the hands of two strokes, the actress became paralyzed. Gardner died at age 67 from pneumonia, but remains a legendary figure in Hollywood to this day.
Julie Gibson just recently passed away in late 2019, at the incredible age of 106, in her Los Angeles home. You can definitely say that the artist, singer, TV performer, actress, and vocal coach lived a full life. Gibson’s acting career began in 1935 and lasted well into the '90s.
The actress was one of the most beloved personalities in Hollywood, and America in general, back in the ‘40s. She is best recognized for her role in the popular comedy show 'The Three Stooges'. Gibson also dubbed vocals for prominent actresses at the time, including Betty Hutton and Diana Lynn.

Audrey Hepburn was a British actress and humanitarian with an impressive portfolio. She worked alongside legendary actor, Gregory Peck, in 'Roman Holiday', and received a Golden Globe, a BAFTA, and an Academy Award for her incredible performances.

Recently, the American Film Institute ranked Hepburn as the third-greatest female actress in Golden Age Hollywood. She passed away in 1993 due to stomach cancer, but remains a popular influence in entertainment circles for her acting and social impact to this day.
At age 61, actress Michelle Pfeiffer remains one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood. She has appeared in an endless list of films, including 'Scarface', 'Stardust', and more. It was challenging for her to break out of the “pretty girl” typecast in the ‘70s, but it was worth the effort.
Michelle Pfeiffer’s beauty has often been described as the kind that you have to take a moment to marvel at, which we believe holds true even today. The actress has also produced a set of her own films, and is still acting and widely admired by a huge audience of fans even today.

The talented model, actress and singer passed away at age 36. She lived a troubled life that was rife with depression and addictions, which ultimately led to her tragic ending. Monroe was known as the pioneer of women's sexual revolution, and will forever be remembered as its icon.

What made Lamarr unique was her second profession as an inventor.

She was also married and divorced six times throughout her life.
There is a long legacy of beautiful American film actresses marrying royalty from a variety of countries. Grace Kelly spent a few years as an actress, before retiring at 26 to marry Prince Rainier III. She subsequently became the Princess of Monaco, and played the role from 1956 to 1982.
The talented actress and princess had a rather unfortunate end though. While driving back to Monaco from her country home in Roc Agel, she had a stroke and lost control of her vehicle. Kelly passed away that day, and had one of the most publicized funerals in the world.

She began her career as a child star and quickly became one of the world’s most popular actresses. In 1999, the American Film Institute named Taylor the seventh-greatest female screen legend. Many fans wondered what her real eye color was, a topic which is still discussed today
