Ten Most Beautiful Women In History. Vote! Beauty is not a universal truth but a personal feeling as well as a social opinion. Don’t you think so? Today, enjoy a list about handsome women in our Western culture. Each of them was an icon of beauty in her time, and the most important men fell in love with them. However, they are very different because preferences about hair color, thickness of lips, clothing size or height change constantly.

Phryne was the prettiest women in Ancient Greece (4th century BC). She was Praxiteles’ muse and model. What do you think? Maybe too sober?

Cleopatra VII Philopator (1st century BC). Julius Caesar and Mark Antony loved her. But she had a strange nose! Take a look at the coins made at the time.

Livia Drusilla (30 January 58 BC– 28 September AD 29) was the wife of the Roman emperor Augustus throughout his reign, as well as his adviser. Intelligent and elegant, old Roman men admired her. However, she was a little fat for our tastes.

Lucrezia Borgia (18 April 1480 – 24 June 1519) has been cast as the first ‘femme fatale,’ and many paintings, novels, and films focus on her personality and beauty. But have you seen the real portrait of Lucrezia?

Anne Boleyn (c. 1501 – 19 May 1536). King Henry VIII of England found her so attractive that he annulled his marriage to Queen Catherine, breaking with the Catholic Church forever. Today, her style is too dull!

The Princess of Eboli has captivated attention for centuries, been immortalized in opera by Verdi, portrayed in a movie by Olivia de Haviland, and is the subject of numerous books. Is sexy an eye patch? As I said before, beauty is not a universal truth.

Hélène Fourment (11 April 1614 – 15 July 1673) was the second wife of Baroque painter Peter Paul Rubens, and the model of the Three Graces. How about her cellulitis?

Marie Antoinette, Queen of Rococo style, had a peculiar face… But she was the most chic woman in the 18th century. In the United States, expressions of gratitude to France for its help in the American Revolution included the naming of the city of Marietta, Ohio, founded in 1788.

Marilyn Monroe (June 1, 1926 – August 5, 1962) was one of the most popular film stars and sex symbols of the 1950s, and is considered one of the most important popular culture icons of the twentieth century.

Mia Farrow (born February 9, 1945) is the icon of the androgynous style of 70s.
