List Rules Voting should be based on a woman's beauty during her peak years as all beauty inevitably fades with age . . .

Here are the most beautiful women of all time ranked not on looks alone, regardless of their talent. This is a test to see if the so-called "wisdom of the crowd" will actually be able to determine the most beautiful woman of all time. If you'd like to rank these women on more than their beauty, consult The Best Actresses in Film History list. This list does not only include the prettiest current actresses but the most beautiful women in history.

So, who is the most beautiful woman ever? Of course, that person may very well be a total unknown, but since it's impossible to list every woman who's ever existed, and users are less likely to rank people they don't know, this list will be comprised of female celebrities. All of these women are gorgeous which means more than simply being the hottest woman in the world.

These ladies are at the top of the list in the conversation for sexiest woman ever and prettiest woman in the world. With that being said, you can vote up all the women you find to be attractive on the list below.
