I'd like to get photographers' views on this.   I think the most beautiful woman alive is Sophie Marceau.  Anyone agree?

Well, Robert, if you think the most beautiful woman alive is Sophie Marceau, enjoy her without any reinforcement from me.

For me I am always partial to the ones I know and then more so to the ones I work with and even then it gets topical.
Then it gets hard to decide on the ones where something about there personality is so dang charming in person and it makes it partial even to the image.

I guess I will always be to moody to hand all the crowns to just one.

With photography there is certainly no absolute standard of beauty. This precisely is what makes its pursuit so interesting and capture so rewarding to photographers and other artists.

Would the best model necessarily be the most beautiful?


Recently I noticed some pin-up style pictures of Italian actress Rosalba Neri for sale on ebay, she was well known in the 1970s for her film roles but she she also did some modelling and fashion work.

The most beautiful woman alive is currently Iron Fist actress Jessica Henwick.

Sophia Marceau? No disrespect, but not a chance. There are quite a few models on Model Mayhem alone that are better looking. I'll just name one. Ever see or here of Scarlet Begonias? Take a look at the 'Elite Models' album in my portfolio (she's the blonde in the pool and the tight headshot). Agree or disagree?

No such thing as "most beautiful"

Each person  enjoys a different style of beauty.

There used to be a sign in front of a strip bar I passed now and then. "Home of 11 of the most beautiful women in the world, and 1 ugly one." Don't know if that was a disclaimer or if it gave the ladies something to debate.

Like everyone else, I have my own personal bias.  But for me, there was always something special about Olivia Preston.

To the surprise of nobody...

I still feel  Zhang Ziyi is one of the most beautiful women in the world.

Yes, Zhang Ziyi is nice, but remember Joan Chen in her prime? Older than Zhang, so she might be forgotten by some. However, in her prime, she was both beautiful and sexy. Still looks pretty good for her age now as well...

Nope, no way.
She's attractive but no where near that claim.

I think that beauty is contextual, so the question is unanswerable as asked.

Saying Olivia Preston is one of the most beautiful women in the world is kinda like saying the sky is blue, it's so obvious it doesn't need to be reinforced.

I don't see it at all, attractive yeah, that's it.
Sounds like the media hype in Mag's of world's top 10 most beautiful women, where none actual are.
Wheeling out the usual suspects of Rihana, Scarlett Jo, J-Lo, etc etc, and people just ba-baa and lap it up.

Most famous top 10, maybe yeah, but most beautiful, no way.

Raquel Welch, for me, is one of the most beautiful ever!
Any era, any criteria, she's in my top 5.

I say one of, as what's the best food ever, depends on the moment, mostly-mostly Thai, but sometimes Jamaican Jerk Chicken or a Xmas dinner with all the trimmings is the most craved.
