Vanity Fair “World’s Most Beautiful Woman” Poll 2009


Vanity Fair has compiled a reader-produced list of the World’s Most Beautiful Women.

According to the fashion-forward style mag, 58 percent of respondents voted that mother of six Angelina Jolie is the Most Beautiful Woman in the World. Newlywed supermodel Gisele Bundchen came in a distant second, earning just nine percent of the vote.

British-born model Kate Moss, R&B songstress Beyonce, actress Cate Blanchett, and Iron Man 2 star Scarlett Johansson rounded out the Top 5.

“Of the billions of women on this planet, only 19, we believe, could start wars,” Vanity Fair editors said on its website. “These modern-day Helens of Troy come from both hemispheres and include legends and ingenues, a Queen (Rania of Jordan) and a first Lady (Carla Bruni of France), and at least two bedmates of Leonardo DiCaprio (Bundchen and Bar Refaeli).”
