UPDATE: Actress Angelina Jolie has been voted the world’s most beautiful woman in a landslide victory in an online Vanity Fair magazine poll.
Jolie earned 58 percent of the vote – well ahead of second-place getter supermodel Gisele Bundchen on 9 percent.
Indian actress Freida Pinto is now being feted as a modern ‘Helen of Troy’ by Vanity fair Magazine which is conducting a poll to find the world’s most beautiful woman. The magazine has given out a list of 19 names, out of which one will be judged the world’s most beautiful woman.
Although names of Hollywood superstars like Charlize Theron and Nicole Kidman are missing, Pinto has found a place on the list.
"Of the billions of women on this planet, only 19, we believe, could start wars. These modern-day Helens of Troy come from both hemispheres and include legends and ingenues," said the magazine about it’s chosen list.
The list is a eclectic mix of personalities. From Hollywood, actresses like Halle Berry, Cate Blanchett, Penelope Cruz, Scarlett Johansson, Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow, made to the list.
From the political circles, Queen Rania of Jordan and France first lady Carla Bruni stand tall to give a tough competition.
Two of Leonardo DiCaprio’s girlfriends are also on the list, Gisele Bundchen and current love interest Bar Rafaeli.
