It’s hard to define what is beauty because it is said that beauty is in the eye of the beholders. A person may be attractive to someone but at the same time, someone else may not find him or her attractive.
When it comes to beautiful women, we think of female celebrities. The silver screen has bought us some of the greatest-looking women in the world (both in the past and the present), like Elizabeth Taylor and Jessica Alba. Although it was a difficult task to pick a few out of an incredibly decent bunch
, we’ve rounded up 20 of the most beautiful women of all time.
We know beauty is highly subjective, so you may not agree about our list but that’s what the voting is for. If you’re curious about them, scroll down to see.
