Fashion designer Giorgio Armani has named Jordan's QUEEN RANIA as the most beautiful woman in the world.

The 69-year-old legend deems the elegant royal to be most alluring female, but also namechecks a selection of Hollywood stars whose form he admires.

Armani gushes, "Think of Michelle Pfeiffer in Scarface when she comes down the stairs in that gold dress - I fell in love with her at that particular moment.

"There are also some younger actresses today like Mena Suvari. She is beautiful and the way she moves is so sensual. And Julia Roberts, well, her smile is enough really."
