Most Beautiful Penelope Cruz

Penelope Cruz has been named the world's most beautiful woman.

The 36-year-old beauty beat supermodel Claudia Schiffer, 39, and 49-year-old actress Kristin Scott Thomas to top the chart, which was compiled by fashion expert Sally Allen.

Sally spent a year looking at press coverage to compile the list, which also included Dame Helen Mirren, 64, and 75-year-old Sophia Loren.

She said: "Our top ten women are often the subject of spontaneous and unexpected press exposure yet always manage, somehow, to look great. Sometimes they are caught without their make-up, on bad hair days, or in less than flattering poses, but their natural beauty always seems to shine through.

"There is no question in my mind that Penelope Cruz is a worthy winner. She was an undoubtedly pretty girl when she started her acting career at 16 but, 20 years later, she has matured into a particularly beautiful woman and a fine actress."

The youngest entrant was 34-year-old Charlize Theron and Sally believes the reason older females were included is because they get better with age.

She said: "As someone once said, the difference between pretty and beautiful is that pretty is temporal, whereas beautiful is eternal."

The list was compiled for clothing firm Wizard Jeans, with spokesman Anthony Edwards saying: "Women like Beyonce Knowles and Cheryl Cole are sexy and pretty but real beauty is something that comes from within and usually requires maturity. The days when women were considered past it at 40 are long gone."

Top ten of the world's most beautiful women:

1 - Penelope Cruz

2 - Claudia Schiffer

3 - Kristin Scott Thomas

4 - Queen Rania of Jordan

5 - Catherine Deneuve

6 - Dame Helen Mirren

7 - Charlize Theron

8 - Kate Beckinsale

10 - Sophia Loren
