Most of Taylor Swift's prominent group of friends are top-tier fashion models. Yet, the fact that she made it onto this list proves she fits right in with her A-list squad, which includes Cara Delevingne and Gigi Hadid, both of whom have appeared in her music videos.

No wonder many envy the great T-Swizzle!

The late British-American actress started as a child star and grew her reputation from that time until she became one of the most popular entertainers of her time. In fact, Taylor was among the highest-paid actors back in the '60s and won several awards, too.

Academy Award-winning actress Emma Stone is often lauded for her talent, although she has also, at one time, become one of the highest-paid movie stars in the world. The effortlessness with which she combines her beauty, elegance, and grace is a source of widespread admiration.
So, people should not be surprised that the La La Land star has made it to this list. Stone began performing as a child in The Wind in the Willows in 2000.

The Israeli former beauty queen is renowned for her understated magnetism, but it didn't stop her from scoring some snagging major film roles, most of which required her to maintain the appearance of a fearless young lady who can take on the world.
For all her flawless beauty, the former dancer and fitness instructor needs only to thank her good genes. Those who don't believe Gadot is a natural beauty should see her social media account, as she frequently posts photos of herself bare-faced. Nevertheless, the Wonder Woman star allows professionals to do their magic when roles call for it.
There's no denying that Emma Watson rightfully deserves a spot on this list. Aside from having a beautiful face, she portrayed Belle, aka Beauty, in the live-action movie version of Beauty and the Beast.

No matter how old she gets, Jennifer Lopez remains one of the world's most aesthetically pleasing women. The singer looks so good we have lost count of the number of times she has been accused of having had procedures done on her to enhance her looks, which she has repeatedly denied.
In addition to taking good care of herself, which reflects in her physical appearance, JLO also has good genes to thank for her beauty. According to the 'Love Don't Cost a Thing' famed star, her mother and grandmother are among the most beautiful women she knows, so she gives them credit for being as attractive as she is.
Sophia Loren's beauty was already apparent when she joined a beauty pageant at just the age of 14. Then, at 16, Loren found her way into the acting world and started featuring in minor roles until she finally became a hotshot after signing a contract with Paramount Pictures in 1956.
Over the years, Loren has proved to the world that she is not only beautiful but she's also got the brains and skills to match.

Natalie has often been a top contender for the most beautiful woman and often won the top spot. The Black Swan actor is a timeless beauty, and she is getting more beautiful with age.
