Seriously, try to beat those facial expressions. I always have a goofy/dreamy smile on my face when I watch a movie starring Rachel McAdams. Embarassed

She wasn't on the list and I don't care if I am biased, but she is intelligent, sultry, funny, and sarcastic as hell!

Taylor was stunning and the eyes drove everyone crazy... next for me was Natalie Woods so petite and finally Linda Evans tall sexy and sweet looking

Liz Taylor is a great choice. As Cleopatra, she's one of the most strikingly beautiful women in the history of ever.

Kate Beckinsale is drop dead gorgeous at times, and drop dead sexy at others. She's aged really well through the years as well. She's still a holdover crush from years ago. Embarassed




Back in her Dark Angel days, Jessica Alba dripped sex appeal when she had the black hair, more toned body, and slightly bigger booty. She's slimmed down over the years.




Halle Berry of course.

She is so adorable and sexy...and she's Canadian from not far from where I am!

Wardog, who is the 2nd photo of on your post, right above Barbara Eden? She's stunning!

I just do not think I could possibly pick just one, whether on your ordinal list or not, just too many to choose from.

I always thought Pamela Anderson was quite a gorgeous lady in her youth.



In a way, I think what we're discussing here concerns the iconic reputation of these women a lot more than their current physical hotness per se. Beauty and hotness have changed quite a lot culturally since the Monroe era, to the point where most women in the OP appear rather average to me ; I simply do not have the cultural impregnations to judge those past beauties.

Also, I think there's something fairly hypocrite in the way we grant such women an iconic status. More often than not, these women are a representation of what the overall population wants to consider hot, rather than a representation of hotness per say. A lot of times, the 'beautiful yet not too much' brunette with average body fat levels and nice eyes will be perceived as the epitome of feminine beauty, while the drop dead gorgeous blonde with voluptuous breasts and shapes that require some degree of dedication is going to be judged as a superficial bitch. Granting Salma Hayek an iconic status doesn't really create a huge level of discomfort among the population, but admitting that Pamela Anderson is hot as hell rubs quite a lot of people the wrong fucking way.

We also like to reinforce this reality by offering the former roles linked to elegance and intelligence, while the latter is doomed to fill the role of the dumb bikini babe. We then look back at it all and exclaim how superficial and idiotic this bombshell can be by 'choosing' this image, while totally forgetting that the choices are in fact made by producers according to what the population demands in the first place. Women like Pamela Anderson then orient their careers toward depravity and superficiality at the great joy of the masses (there's actually a demand for that), despite the fact that she was initially nothing more than a strikingly beautiful woman.

I've met a few extremely 'hot' women in my life, and the way they were treated by their peers was not that dissimilar to the way society treats women like Pamela Anderson. Men talked to them as if they were dumb kids, and women attacked their reputation by any means they could come up with. Again, admitting that these women could possibly have any other qualities than their shocking beauty rubbed a lot of people the wrong way.

Now, of course there's more to human value than beauty, and there's more to beauty than hotness, but to express this reality through a hypocrite culture without any substance by destroying the reputation of gorgeous women instead of relying on thoughtful dialogue is all very fucked up to me.

Sorry to say, but according to the men I've met through my life, strip clubs I've visited, the general porn culture, and my own sentiments, this random fitness model is a whole lot hotter than Mrs. Taylor. Not necessarily a superior human being, but definitely hot as fuck. As for the rest of her personality, nobody here has sufficient information to judge any of it simply with this picture.




Here I'm back with an exhaustive rant despite my promise to never participe in these forums ever again. I forgot to mention, but aside from being an arrogant prick, I'm also a major asshole. confused1

I'd agree that she was one of the most beautiful, those violet eyes, but I never saw her as sexy. Perhaps, for me, more earthiness or raunch is needed to be really sexy. I never thought Audrey Hepburn or Grace Kelly were sexy, both beautiful but in a wholesome way which was part of their allure.

From those on the list:
Salma, Natalie, Sophia. I dont really get the Elizabeth Taylor hype. Yeah, its all subjective, but I just dont get it (like the whole Aniston thing). Maybe Im not old enough to have appreciated her in her younger days.

Sophia has definitely aged better than Taylor, and Raquel Welch better than both of them who was mentioned, although, Welch is 8 years Taylors' junior and 6 years Loren. But I bet she still looks better then they did at her age.

It's early days, but poor old Jayne Mansfield with no votes! It's interesting what suggestions are coming out from people outside the official seven. If I had have chosen a list of 100 women, someone would have found number 101.

Interesting debate on the notion of beauty and who's hot and who's not come out of this, if nothing else.

Why so few iconic hot dark-skinned women? I'm appalled and embarrassed to say I can't think of any!

Sophia Loren has definitely got something a bit Eastern going on though, hasn't she?! I think there's a case for Whitney Houston to be up there, but she didn't spring to mind. I probably should have extended the list. Next time...

I agree with every aspect of the above statement and would place Halle Berry on the top of my list. I'd love to place her on something else of mine but, ahhhhhh, sweet dreams are made of this.

I gave you two, though they were fairly light skinned. I could go on and on about the lack of opportunities for dark skinned women in early Hollywood, but I don't have the time.

Dorothy Dandridge
Lena Horne

When I first responded to this thread I actually read the OP question wrong. For some reason I thought she was asking who is the SEXIEST woman in the last 70 yrs. To me there is a big difference between Hot and being Sexy. Being Hot is all about appearance and being Sexy is all about attitude in my opinion.

So while I would still choose Sophia Loren with Marilyn being a close second from the choices given, I retract my comment about Raquel Welch. I Think she is far HOTTER than anyone in the poll. JMO of course!

Most of the women that have been mentioned are gorgeous although I really don't see how some of them (Jen Aniston for example) belong in the conversation with most of the Iconic women mentioned. Nothing against Jen, but she is out of her league here!

And I am also surprised Jayne Mansfield got no love. I guess most still think of her as a Marilyn wannabe.

To me Marilyn Monroe was iconic because she was the original blueprint for the coquettish blonde bombshell. She set the standard. There are reasons why she has been copied over and over again for generations - to name a few: Madonna, Anna Nicole, Pamela Anderson, Christina Aguilera, Lindsay Lohan. Her 'look' or image has been borrowed at times by celebs from Gwen Stefani, Scarlet Johanson, Paris Hilton, Angelina Jolie to even Rachel McAdams. All the women I named are beautiful but there is something iconic and unique about Marilyn's combination of glamour, sexuality, vulnerability and innocence that has made her a household name and still a glamour-icon to be emulated and borrowed from today. She's still appearing in Chanel No. 5 ads. It's crazy when you think about it. Beauty is bit easier - there are endless beautiful and/or hot women past and present, but it's kind of like looking at the Mona Lisa and trying to understand what makes the painting special.



Here's a 'modernized' Marilyn with dark hair - if this person existed today - even without the icon-factor, she would still be absolutely stunning - even by today's standards.

Oops, and not to threadjack, but I *have* to mention how beautiful I think Pam looks even now because I am loving the bold haircut on her. I absolutely agree - I think she was a hottie when she arrived on the scene, but I think she still looks fantastic at her age.

Of the 7 I chose Elizabeth Taylor

I also agree with some of the choices listed esp. Dorothy Dandridge, Halle Berry, Lana Turner, Diahnn Carroll, Jean Harlow, Natalie Wood, Kim Basinger and several others.

Some other choices I would throw in are:


Jaclyn Smith


Susan Hayward


Vivien Leigh


Farrah Fawcett


Lynda Carter


Olivia Newton John

And even though these last two are not legends or well known I will throw them in:


Tamara Tunie


Debbi Morgan

I agree about Pam. I think she looks great with her new hair style. But she was stunning as a young sexy girl next door before she got caught up with all the cosmetic surgery. And while I think she looked great she didn't need it!!

yeah they crossed my mind, along with Norma Shearer, Deborah Kerr, vampish Theda Bara, Bob Newhart, and Alexis Smith (the last one having maybe the sexiest eyes I've ever, EVER seen), but they just didn't quite get shortlisted. Also I'm trying to keep my long list-making tendencies under control lol.

that Susan Hayward photo was heavenly.

ok last ocd edit - Sonia Braga, Aishwarya Rai, ***Eesha Narang***

Susan Peters was another of the actresses from the 30s and 40s who was beautiful. Her career was tragically cut short from a gun shot wound that left her paralyzed. They tried to revive it in the 50's with a short lived daytime soap opera, but it didn't work.



Gene Tierney was another classic movie actress who often gets overlooked in the beauty department.

As someone else said I guess we could debate this forever as everyone has their ideas about beauty. But truthfully we could easily make a list of at least 50 from each decade
