Experts decide on the Most Beautiful Woman in the World
The Age ^

Posted on 06/01/2004 3:58:27 AM PDT by Hillary's Lovely Legs

Film legend Audrey Hepburn has been named the most naturally beautiful woman of all time by a panel of experts.

Three Australians featured in the first 10 out of 100 beauties, actress Cate Blanchett, who came in third, singer Natalie Imbruglia and model Elle MacPherson.

Princess Diana came in 12th.

Hepburn, the star of Roman Holiday and Breakfast At Tiffany's, topped the poll of beauty editors, make-up artists, fashion editors, model agencies and fashion photographers who were asked to choose their top 10 beauties from the list of 100 compiled by the drinks firm Evian.

The women were chosen for their "embodiment of natural beauty, healthy living, beautiful on the inside and out, with great skin and a natural glow to their personality, as well as their complexion", Evian said.

Hepburn was joined in the top five by current US film star Liv Tyler, Blanchett, Tomb Raider star Angelina Jolie and the fifties icon turned princess Grace Kelly.

"Audrey Hepburn is the personification of natural beauty," said Elle beauty director Rosie Green.

"She has a rare charm and inner beauty that radiates when she smiles. Her skin looks fresh in all her films and her personality really shines through as someone warm and lively."

More than 76 per cent of the beauty experts who voted in the survey mentioned Hepburn in their top 10.

The survey also showed that while 32 per cent of the icons placed in the number one spot by panel members were blondes, 22 per cent redheads and 46 per cent brunettes.

"People who are confident without a scrap of make-up and look healthy, happy and glowing, seem like natural beauties to me," Eleonore Crompton, of Heat magazine.

How could Jenna Jameson not make this list? Am I being lead to believe that some parts of her aren't natural?

I saw the title; I saw the poster: I KNEW I'd be in for a treat. As always, thanks! (why do you do this to us...some kind of vicarious triumph of feminine wiles?)

I'm totally mystified by everyone's attraction to Angelina Jolie. I just don't get it. A naturla beauty? Maybe if you look for beauty at the local tattoo parlor.

If I changed the source to Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, NYTimes would you move this back to news? It's been in all those broadcasts and print media this morning.

I do it because it's news and it's not Abu Ghraib, Kerry, Michael Moore or the cost of fuel. Sometimes it's nice to think about things that are different.

Man cannot live happily by being pounded with the same old news over and over.

Well, yeah. They asked a bunch of gay men - excuse me, "beauty editors, make-up artists, fashion editors, model agencies and fashion photographers" - who they thought were some attractive women. Of course the list is wacked.

Joe , remember Vera-Ellen...the Barbie-doll dancer in White Christmas? Disappeared, but certainly one of the most fabulous babes of all time. A little skinny for her day, I think.

I, being a dufuss, still don't know how to post a pic...

Can you find a good full-body shot of Vera Ellen for the wolves?? I'm curious to know the consensus.

Good job!

I first saw Vera Ellen when I was a young teenager. She was in some movie with David Niven, IIRC.

I was in astonished awe of her perfect and beautiful legs, which the movie featured prominently. Though I was only 13 or 14 at the time, when I saw the movie I understood that I had become a man.

Audrey Hepburn, one of the best. She ooozed class and had her inner beauty outshone the outer beauty. We should all be so lucky!

I don't get it...

Just LOOK at women like Grace Kelly next to the recent chicks - NO comparison!

I'm only 40, but where's Janet Leigh, Priscilla Lane,
Vera Miles, Stella Stevens and
yes, Maureen O'Hara!?!?

I'm talking REAL women, not plastic anorexics with bad hair and fake noses!

Well, as HLL stated earlier: "For the record, I think their list is totally wacked."

He's right. Half of those women aren't on the "Top 500,000,000 Most Beautiful Women" list. I see much prettier women whenever I go to the mall.

Yes it is whacked! Sophia Loren is 70, and could beat out most of that top ten. Jennifer Aniston beat Catherine Zeta-Jones? Ye Gods, this is more about who is popular, not who is beautiful.

Well, yeah. And the presence of the downright ugly Uma Thurmon on this list is another mystery.

It looks like they just put the names of a thousand female movie stars in a hopper and randomly chose one hundred and posted them on the list.

I don't understand it myself. If she gets off the self destruction roller coaster, she could end up looking as good as Sophia Loren does now in her 70's.

Uma Thurman is a talented actress, but not beautiful imo. I think you're right. They pulled names out of a hat or something. Put Uma between Rose McGowan and Stephanie Seymour(one time top model for Victoria's Secret...now married with kids, and still very beautiful), and see how ridiculous this is.

Now now, Rose McGowan sans theatrical make up is extremely good looking.

Actually, when the "Treasure's of Cleopatra' exhibit rolled thru town, they made a big point out of the 'fact' that Cleo wasn't attractive. Of course that just turned on me and my buddy all the more, as we fugured she must have been AWFULLY GOOD at her "arts" to get so many big wigs to do her bidding...
