List Rules Vote up the most stunning living women in entertainment, modeling, sports, or even politics.

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, 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. Who's the world's most attractive lady? You get to help decide.

The women featured here are some of the most beautiful women on primetime TV, the hottest celebrities of all-time, and the sexiest female athletes in America and the world. You might also ask yourself, where are the most beautiful women in the world? These amazingly hot women are representative of every nationality - they are Swedish, Indian, Russian, American, and from every country in between. 

Is Scarlett Johansson the most gorgeous 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 skincare 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 vote on.

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 considered the most beautiful. Being extremely beautiful implies physical beauty, yes - but it is more than just the hottest or cutest girls. They are the whole package, physically. For many, being beautiful is the highest compliment one can get on their looks.

This list is ranking some of the best looking models, hottest movie stars, and most beautiful famous women around. Vote up the women who you think deserve the title of the most beautiful woman in the world. Your votes will help them get closer to the top of the list.
