When it comes to the topic of the most gorgeous woman in history, you are bound to hear different answers. After all, every single one of us has their own opinions, biases, and tastes. However, there are still certain candidates that everyone will agree are at least worth considering. There is no way that you can deny that these ladies are all very easy on the eyes. We have compiled the list of these striking women who are deserving of the title. We will let you be the judge here so feel free to choose for yourself!

Marilyn Monroe

We might as well start with the most obvious one! Marilyn Monroe is easily a top candidate for the title. It has been decades since she passed away, but she continues to be one of the most recognizable people in history. We still mourn the fact that she died early at 36 years old. “Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring,” she said. Words to live by!

Here Are The Top Contenders For The Title Of The Most Beautiful Women In History

Natalie Wood

She was a young girl when she got her first taste of the limelight. The Russian-American beauty only made it big when she was cast to play Maureen O’Hara in Miracle on 34th Street, however. Aside from that, she also starred in Rebel Without a Cause and West Side Story. Sadly, Natalie Wood died under very strange circumstances at the tender age of 43. It took place during a trip to Santa Catalina with her spouse, her costar, and the captain. The investigation has since been reopened. In an interesting twist, her husband Robert Wagner was named a person of interest.

Elizabeth Taylor

Born in London, Elizabeth Taylor grew up in California because her family relocated there just before the beginning of the Second World War. Even when she was little, she was so pretty that her mother to tell her that she should act in movies! But what made her look like that in the first place? It turns out that she was born with a genetic mutation, which is why she had two rows of eyebrows. From her beginnings as a child star, she came a long way and went on to be one of the biggest Hollywood stars in history.

Michelle Pfeiffer

During the ‘80s and ‘90s, Michelle Pfeiffer was one of the most famous actresses in Hollywood. Aside from her good looks, she also had great acting skills. We are glad that she was able to get out of the pretty girl typecast. She accomplished this by landing a role in Scarface during the late ‘70s. This allowed her to explore roles that did not only qualify as eye candy. She possesses “the kind of beauty you find yourself involuntarily taking a moment to marvel at mid-conversation,” according to a contributor for the Daily Telegraph. We definitely agree with that description.

Julie Gibson

This amazing performer lived to see the age of 106, which is not something that many people have achieved. It also meant that Julie Gibson outlived most of her costars from the Golden Era of Hollywood despite being older than many of them. She got her start in the industry over 80 years ago and reached the peak of her career during the ‘40s. This was the time that she cemented her status as a legend in show business. Here is something you might not know about her – she was born Gladys Camille Sorey!

Charlize Theron

Actress Charlize Theron grew up on a farm in South Africa. However, things have not been easy for her. When she was 15, her mother killed her dad, citing self-defense because he threatened to kill the two of them. She trained to be a ballerina, but an injury forced her to quit the artform. Luckily, her good looks did not go unnoticed! She modeled for a little while, but her true stardom only began when she went into acting. Mind you, she is very talented at what she does. As proof of that, we will have you know that she won the Academy Award for Best Actress with her performance in Monster.

Raquel Welch

It might not have been her debut role, but Raquel Welch managed to earn her status as a pop culture icon with her work in One Million Years B.C. We are sure that you have seen this photo of the actress in a fur bikini in the past! Aside from that, she was also in Bedazzled, 100 Rifles, Legally Blonde, and Bandolero. Thanks to her efforts to promote her Latin heritage, she was bestowed the “Imagen Foundation Lifetime Achievement Award” in 2001.

Rita Hayworth

All her life, Rita Hayworth proved her worth as a performer. As a young girl, she danced in New York until the family moved to California when she was 10 years old. In the ‘30s, she worked on a number of dancing movies. The decade after that, she got her chance to take on more serious roles. The following decade had not been easy for her thanks to her personal issues. She went into a downward spiral of alcohol and financial issues, which meant that job offers went to younger women. Tragically, she passed away in 1987 after suffering from various symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease for decades.

Ursula Andress

This beauty made a name for herself by being the first person to be a Bond girl. She earned this title by starring in Dr. No opposite Sean Connery. We daresay that it was one of the most iconic introductions of any female film character ever. Ursula Andress had a thick Swiss-German accent, which had to be dubbed over. Despite this, she still enjoyed a highly successful career in the industry. She also appeared in Playboy magazine several times. Someone once asked her why she did not mind posing naked for photos. Her response was legendary: “Because I’m beautiful.”

Catherine Deneuve

This French star made it big when she starred in a movie called Les Parapluies de Cherbourg. It was an interesting film that was just like an opera in the sense that all the lines had been sung! She was also in Roman Polanski’s Repulsion, which made her even more famous. She continued to earn more acting credits after that. In 1985, Catherine Deneuve got to be the official face of Marianne or the French personification of liberty. Recently, she made headlines when she signed an open letter that opposed the #MeToo movement. She claimed that it was only a witch hunt and nothing more.

Ann-Margret Olsson

During the ‘60s and 70s, Ann-Margret Olsson became known as one of the biggest stars of the era. The talented performer earned her big break by starring in Bye Bye Birdie. She had been trying to make it as a recording artist before that. The star also played a big role in Who’s Tommy and a recurring character in Ray Donovan and Law and Order: SVU. Even though it has been many decades since the peak of her career, it is hard to deny her influence on the industry.

Vivien Leigh

Who would have thought that beauty can come with difficulties? Vivien Leigh was a great actress, but her good looks oven overshadowed her talent. There was a director who once described it to a tee by saying that she was a “consummate actress, hampered by beauty.” While she enjoyed a lot of fame for starring in Gone with the Wind and A Streetcar Named Desire, her theatre career had been more prolific than her onscreen one. During the last few decades of her life, she had to deal with tuberculosis. Sadly, she eventually succumbed to the respiratory disease in 1967.

Ava Gardner

If you ever wondered about her accent, it is because Ava Gardner was from South Carolina. In fact, MGM even considered it incomprehensible! Despite this, they gave her a chance by signing her on. She snagged her big break by appearing in The Killers five years into her acting career. This was the beginning of her stardom, which paved the way for her career of five decades in show business. In the ‘80s, her smoking habit caught up with her. She suffered stroke and emphysema in 1986, ultimately rendering her paralyzed. The actress passed away after contracting pneumonia in 1990.

Eleanor Tomlinson

Best known for playing Princess Isabelle in Jack the Giant Slayer, Eleanor Tomlinson also played Demelza Poldark in Poldark and Isabel Neville The White Queen.

With her clear blue eyes and fiery red hair, she is definitely a stunner.

Cheryl Ladd

Can you believe that Cheryl Ladd is nearing her 70s now? Neither can we! She is known for playing Kris Munroe in Charlie’s Angels. In the second season of the show, she joined the crew to take the place of Farrah Fawcett-Majors. She went on to stay on the show until it came to an end in 1981.

Aside from her music, Samantha Fox is also known for her time as a model. She was only 16 years old when she started to make waves in the fashion industry. In 1986, she entered the music world with a single that rose to the top of the charts in eight countries across the globe. Two years after that, she received a nomination for the Best British Female Artist. She has since starred in TV shows and films too!

Cheryl Tiegs

In 1978, Cheryl Tiegs first did a swimsuit shoot for Sports Illustrated. So much time has passed since then! We are not surprised to hear that her modeling career kicked off after that. Aside from that spread, she has also been on the People cover four times in the past. In 2012, she was included in the top 100 Hottest Women of All Time list by Men’s Health. However, her biggest passion is philanthropy. She has previously talked about important causes like reproductive rights and environmental protection.

This American legend is best known for appearing in projects such as Empty Nest, Only When I Laugh, and Little Darlings.

Emma Stone

When it comes to Hollywood, you will be hard-pressed to find a bigger actress than Emma Stone. Some of her most famous projects would be Easy A, Zombieland, and La La Land. Over the years, she has accumulated more than 20 awards. If you ask us, she definitely deserved every single one of them. In 2017, she was actually the top-paid actress on the planet. Cool.

Blake Lively

You probably got to know Blake Lively when she was playing Serena van der Woodsen in Gossip Girl. The show was on the air for five years, and she was one of the main characters. In 2012, she tied the knot with Ryan Reynolds. The two of them are happily married and have three kids together!

Hedy Lamarr

Is there a woman more fascinating than Hedy Lamarr? For starters, she earned the title of the first woman to portray the female orgasm in a film. However, this was not the only amazing thing that she has done in her life. During World War II, she worked on and patented a technique called “frequency hopping.” It is used to solve the radio signal jamming problem often countered by submarines. While it was not used during her lifetime, it did help with the creation of a lot of amazing devices over the years.

Sharon Tate

In our opinion, it is super tragic that Sharon Tate will always be linked to the disturbing yet senseless murders by the Manson family. Before we go into that, let us mention that she had always been a natural beauty ever since she was little. She was able to make a name for herself as a film actress after working on both comedic and dramatic projects. In 1968, she got married to her The Fearless Vampire Killers costar, Roman Polanski. Sadly, she was eight months into her pregnancy with his child when she died at the hands of the cult.

Sophie Marceau

Another French actress made it to the list! Sophie Marceau was only a teenager when she made a name for herself in the industry. It all started when she starred in a 1980 film known as La Boum. She went on to star in European films for 15 years before she made her way to Hollywood by starring in Braveheart. She also appeared in The World Is Not Enough. The actress might be a constant presence in similar lists, but she has always been a modest person. This beauty once said, “I’ve never really been beautiful. I’m photogenic…” Can you believe it?

Sophia Loren

Is there a more famous actress in Italy than Sophia Loren? We don’t think so. She started acting at the age of 14, and she has achieved so many things since then. It is pretty impressive that she is still active in the industry to this day! Over the years, we have seen her in Grumpier Old Men, A Countess from Hong Kong, and The Pride and the Passion. She is gorgeous enough to pull off something that most women simply can’t imagine doing. A fascinating thing about her is that she doesn’t shave her armpits! We love this little fun fact since it shows just how much personality she has.

Barbi Benton

At the age of 16, Barbi Benton entered the fashion industry. Two years after this, she was already posing for the pages of Playboy. Aside from this, she has also made a name for herself in the world of country music. She has released a few albums and appeared in the show called Hee Haw.

Halle Berry

So many aspiring African-American actresses look up to this incredible actress! Halle Berry is so talented and even bagged an Oscar for her performance in Monster’s Ball. Aside from that film, she has also shown off her acting chops in other projects such as Gothika, Die Another Day, Swordfish, and the X-Men movies. We can’t get enough of her!

This iconic star was born in Mexico and grew up there. She got her start as an actress and producer over there, but she later transitioned to Hollywood in her 20s. It has not slowed down since then! In 2009, she married a businessman by the name of François-Henri Pinault. They have one kid between them.

Isabella Rossellini

We think that it is super neat that Isabella Rossellini is the daughter of another gorgeous woman in Hollywood. She was born to none other than Ingrid Bergman and Roberto Rossellini. Acting aside, she has also made waves by working as a model, although she started her career at an older age. She even went on to become a spokesmodel for Lancôme, which she held for 14 years. Over the years, she has appeared in both film and TV projects. Among all of these, the biggest role she ever took on must be the one for Blue Velvet. How awesome is it that she is also a passionate activist, especially in conservation causes?

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

This is far from the first time that Aishwarya Rai has appeared in a list about the “most beautiful woman in the world.” This gorgeous woman got her start as a model when she was in college. In 1994, she brought home the Miss World crown. She eventually starred in Bollywood movies as well. According to Derek Elley from Variety, she has a “delicately sensual presence and physical grace.” Even though she is very famous, she has been able to keep her personal affairs out of the limelight.

Brigitte Bardot

The French beauty began her entertainment career as a dancer, but she decided to try acting in the ’50s. She earned her breakthrough when she starred in a Robert Vadim film called And God Created Women. It shot her to fame in 1956! She is “undeniably a creation of superlative craftsmanship,” said an American critic. She had been such a big star on the global stage that Simone de Beauvoir wrote a feminist essay with the title “Brigitte Bardot and The Lolita Syndrome.” She has since turned into an animal rights activist. However, she has been arrested for inciting racial hatred in the past as well.

Barbara Eden

Most people know Barbara Eden for her starring role in a ‘60s sitcom by the name of I Dream of Jeannie. At first, the creators of the show had been looking for a brunette to fill in the role. They were not too keen on the idea of hiring a blonde because people might confuse the show for Bewitched. In the end, the actress had been so charming that they decided to change their course of action. If you ask us, they did not make a mistake by changing their minds!

Barbara Eden

Elizabeth Hurley

This actress got her first shot at fame when she began to date Hugh Grant. He is a successful actor in his own right. In 1994, he starred in Four Weddings and a Funeral. She attended the premiere in an amazing black dress from Versace that was secured by nothing more than gold safety pins. This has been credited for the boom experienced by the fashion house. The year after that iconic incident, she became a spokesmodel for Estee Lauder even though she had no modeling experience before that. When it comes to her acting career, she is best known for starring in Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery and Bedazzled.

Anita Ekberg

During her career, Anita Ekberg starred in a number of American and European films. She was primarily based in Italy. In fact, her most famous project has to be La Dolce Vita. The truth is that she had always been lovely and even started a modeling career when she was still a teenager. In 1950, she entered the Miss Malmo contest and then the Miss Sweden contest after that. Everyone was stunned by the beauty that she possessed! In 1951, she joined the Miss Universe pageant as well. What a legend.

Lauren Bacall

This talented star is best known for her dark good looks and distinctive voice. She was one of the greatest actresses during the classic Hollywood era. Lauren Bacall was also given the Academy Honorary Award “in recognition of her central place in the Golden Age of motion pictures.” She had a highly successful acting career, but she actually started out as a model. Among other things, she graced the pages of Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, and more. With her “cat-like grace, tawny blonde hair, and blue-green eyes,” we can see why this is the case!

Kim Basinger

During the ‘70s, Kim Basinger entered the industry as a model and made waves. After some time, she decided that it was time to try her luck at acting by moving to Los Angeles. She made her debut in Hard Country and appeared in various TV films. She also got the honor of being a Bond girl when she worked on Never Say Never Again. Until the ‘90s, she had been a poster girl. The truth is that she is still active in Hollywood to this day. We have to admit that we are blown away by this.

Jaclyn Smith

We all know that Jaclyn Smith is a great actress, but are you aware that she is a good businesswoman as well? She is best known for playing Kelly Garrett in Charlie’s Angels. The show pretty much propelled her into fame! The actress got to reprise the character for the 2003 film, Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle. She went on to appear in various other miniseries, films, and TV shows for the longest time. Another interesting thing about her is that she has tied the knot four times in total.

Barbara Parkins

She was only 16 years old when Barbara Parkins moved to Los Angeles in the hopes of making it big. We are glad that she succeeded! At first, she was hired to be a backup singer and dancer to huge stars in different nightclubs. She managed to get her debut role in a low-budget movie called 20,000 Eyes in 1961. After that, she landed roles in other projects. One of the most famous ones was the film adaptation of Valley of the Dolls. We are not all surprised to hear that she has been nominated for an Emmy Award as Best Actress in the past!

Julie Ege

At the age of 15, Julie Ege entered the industry as a model. Three years later, she entered the Miss Norway competition and finished second. She also joined Miss Universe and eventually moved to England so that she can improve her English and work as an au pair at the same time. During the late ‘60s, she received small roles in various projects. The biggest one of these must be a 1971 comedy movie called Up Pompeii. Many people have referred to her as a glamour actress, but this did not bother her. She has admitted that it was fine with her as long as it helped her with the bills.

Jane Birkin

The truth is that Jane Birkin is not French but English! At any rate, she was famous for her work in British and French cinema. She became even more popular when she got together with Serge Gainsbourg. After they split up, she continued to enjoy a lot of success in her acting and singing career. In the past, she appeared in Never Cries, Red Fox, A Soldier’s Daughter Never Cries, and more. The famous Hermes bag was also named after her since it was made after she complained about the lack of leather weekend bags that appealed to her.

Britt Ekland

In the ‘60s, Britt Ekland began to work on various films. Her career only got more and more successful in the decade after that! Perhaps you remember her from projects such as Get Carter and The Night They Raided Minsky’s. Aside from this, she also played a Bond girl in The Man with the Golden Gun. She enjoyed even more fame after she and Peter Sellers got together. He asked her to get married after he saw her photo in the newspaper! Without a doubt, she was one of the biggest and most photographed celebs on the planet during the ‘70s.

Britt Ekland

Loretta Young

Her career had been an interesting and lengthy one. Loretta Young, after all, started acting at the tender age of two or three. She was active in Hollywood from 1917 to 1953. In the past, she received an Oscar nomination for her work in The Farmer’s Daughter and Come to the Stable. She and Grant Withers were married from 1930 to 1931, but she had a famous affair with Spencer Tracy as well. She was only eight years old when she picked up smoking. Luckily, she quit the habit in the ‘80s!

Jacqueline Bisset

Since the ‘60s, the lovely Jacqueline Bisset had been gracing the entertainment industry with her beauty and talent. This actress is best known for starring in hits like Bullitt. People started to take her seriously when she starred in Day for Night. However, her real claim to fame would be the iconic soaking wet shirt in The Deep. As a matter of fact, this scene has been attributed to the start of those wet T-shirt contests! Well, it was definitely a historic moment. Anyway, the English star went on to work on various TV shows and movies after that.

Jacqueline Bisset

Grace Kelly

Are you surprised to learn that Grace Kelly had been an actress for only five years or so before she left? She is probably best known for marrying Prince Rainier III. While she had a pretty short career, she made it big thanks to her beauty and elegance. She had to give up acting after being a part of the Monegasque royal family. Instead, she chose to focus on philanthropy and art promotion. Sadly, she died in a horrible car crash after suffering a stroke while behind the wheel. We are glad that her daughter at least survived the collision. To this day, Grace Kelly is known to be the epitome of sophistication and class. We daresay that her legacy lives on to this day!

Audrey Hepburn

With her incredible talent and dazzling good looks, Audrey Hepburn was pretty much made for stardom. Just take a look at the success that she earned when she made her debut in Roman Holiday opposite Gregory Peck. It granted her a Golden Globe, a BAFTA, and an Academy Award! Aside from her career as an actress, she was also very devoted to humanitarian work and philanthropy. In 1993, this amazing human being died after suffering from a rare type of abdominal cancer. In case you need more proof of how successful her career had been, just take a look at how famous she still is to this day.

Kim Novak

The truth was that Columbia Pictures recruited Kim Novak to replace Rita Hayworth, previously one of the biggest stars in the industry. Aside from that, the company had been hoping that she could be a viable rival of Marilyn Monroe from 20th Century Fox. She was able to make a name for herself in Hollywood by starring in an Alfred Hitchcock movie called Vertigo. However, she has only taken on roles in sporadic spans of time ever since the ‘60s. She officially retired in the early ‘90s. In 2010, the actress shared that she was suffering from breast cancer. Fortunately, she beat the disease!

Kim Novak

Claudia Cardinale

This beautiful actress got her start when she won a competition to look for the “Most Beautiful Italian Girl in Tunisia.” The prize was a trip to Italy! However, Claudia Cardinale struggled because her parents taught her Sicilian and not Italian. Just so you know, the two languages are pretty different. At any rate, she was able to land a lot of modeling opportunities and acting jobs with her good looks. They had to use voiceover for her, however, since she had a raspy voice and a French accent. We are glad to say that she is passionate about women’s rights. In 2000, she was named a UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador!

Claudia Cardinale

Claudia Cardinale

Jean Shrimpton

Well, it makes sense that one of the first supermodels to have graced the planet would make it to the list! Jean Shrimpton might be a senior citizen now, but she used to appear on the pages of magazines when she was younger. Some of these publications include Harper’s Bazaar, Vanity Fair, Time, and Vogue. We can see why she has been declared to be one of the most influential people in the fashion industry in the past.

Kate Moss

Up next, we have another famous English model! Kate Moss was just a young girl when Sarah Doukas discovered her at JFK airport.

She has also worked as a businesswoman and a contributing fashion editor.

Scarlett Johansson

Did you know that Scarlett Johansson can sing, act, and model? We were impressed to learn this as well. Over the years, she has appeared in many movies such as Lost in Translation, Match Point, Girl with a Pearl Earring, and Manny & Lo. Even though she has received a lot of Golden Globe nominations in the past, she has yet to snag one. In 2003, however, she did win a British Academy Film award for her portrayal of Charlotte in Lost and Translation.

Have you noticed how much attention Gal Gadot has been getting lately? She worked as a combat instructor for the Israeli Defense Forces, bagged the Miss Israel crown in 2004, and took up international relations as she modeled on the side! Is there anything that she can’t do? We are really starting to doubt it. However, she made it big on the global scene when she took on the title role in Wonder Woman. She is now happily married to a businessman by the name of Yaron Varsano.

Lynda Carter

We mentioned Wonder Woman, so this might be the perfect time to talk about Lynda Carter! After all, she got her turn to play the superheroine from 1975 to 1979.

She has always been passionate about raising awareness about leukemia. It is a personal matter for her because her brother died of the disease when she was no more than 10 years old.

Brooke Shields

We can’t believe that Brooke Shields became a household name when she was literally a child. She was 12 years old when she landed the lead role in Pretty Baby, a rather controversial Louis Malle film. In the movie, she played a child prostitute from New Orleans. There was a time when she and Andre Agassi were married, but this is no longer the case. She is now happily married to Chris Henchy!
