List Rules Only famous, living women - can be from TV, film, sports, politics, the literary world. . . and yes, they can be models too.

Naming the most beautiful women in the world is a difficult task because of how subjective it is. Beauty is a mixture of physical attractiveness, sex appeal, attitude, personality, and just an "aura" that is attractive to other people. While these things are difficult to pin down, one thing is for certain - the pretty ladies on this list have that special something that people recognize as beautiful. This list attempts to rank the most beautiful women in the world according to the collective opinion of thousands of people.

The women featured here are some of the most beautiful women on primetime TV, the hottest celebrities of all-time, and the hottest female athletes in America and the world. These amazingly hot women are representative of every nationality - they are Swedish, Indian, Russian, American, and every from country in between. Of course, beautiful women come from all corners of the earth.

Is Scarlett Johansson the sexiest woman in the world, or does that honor belong to a model like Adriana Lima? Do the prettiest women get their looks from genetics or are good looks made with regular visits to the gym and a good skin care routine? Probably a mixture of both, honestly. There are scores of beautiful women from around the world compiled here, and this list of beautiful women is open for all to to vote on.

Who are the most beautiful women in the world? Remember, the term "beautiful" is different than "hot," "cute" and even "pretty." The hottest women in the world - super hot models, for example - aren't necessarily the most beautiful. Being beautiful implies physical beauty, yes - but it is more than just sex appeal and hotness. It is the whole package, physically. For many, being beautiful is the highest compliment one can get on their looks.  

This list has some of the hottest models, hottest movie stars, and sexiest famous women around. Vote up the women who you think deserve the title of the most beautiful woman in the world.
