Angelina Jolie, the world’s most beautiful woman

In an online poll conducted by Vanity Fair, Angelina Jolie was voted as the “the world’s most beautiful woman” with 58% votes. There were 19 women from across the world on the list of contestants, and after Jolie, the Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen ranked second bagging just 9 per cent of the total votes, followed by Oscar-winning star and ex-Bond girl Halle Berry ranked third with 4 per cent votes. The “Slumdog Millionaire” actress Freida Pinto, who was the only Indian to feature in the list, garnered only 2 per cent of the total votes to come at #4, along with Cate Blanchette and pop star Beyonce Knowles.

However, Freida Pinto was polled ahead of favorites like the French First Lady and model Carla Bruni, Kate Moss and Gwyneth Paltrow. Jolie came at #1 with a huge margin of votes in a competition that wasn't even close, as the others scored poorly.

Freida Pinto was also ahead of Elle McPherson, Kerry Washington and Kate Moss, who got only 1 per cent of the total votes. The 24-year-old Indian beauty was a surprise entry in the list which ignored Hollywood superstars like Charlize Theron and Nicole Kidman.
