Sensual like Marilyn and Angelina or refined like Audrey and Marion? The icons of seduction that have made history

They are not just beautiful. They are something that goes beyond the aesthetic canons, which enters the field of magnetism, charisma and personality, unhinging the concepts of physical perfection traditionally understood. Yes, because often, allure and charm have little to do with beauty itself, but they are the result of other mechanisms, inexplicable as much as they are immediate and innate. They are among the most fascinating women in the world, who have become icons of today and yesterday, whose sensuality, style and seduction are a continuous source of inspiration for all the female population.

From the diva par excellence, Marilyn Monroe, muse of painters and artists and timeless icon, to the personification of class and refinement Audrey Hepburn, up to the modern beauties of today: Julia Roberts, Angelina Jolie, Dita Von Teese and Scarlett Johansson, for just name a few.

Different beauties from each other, for physicality, temperament, features and colors: from the magnetism of the Nordic and icy Marlene Dietrich to the warmer and Mediterranean beauty of our Monica Bellucci, up to the all-French delicacy of Marion Cotillard and Vanessa Paradis.

Here are some of the most beautiful women in the world who have made history yesterday and today. And you, who do you prefer? In which type of personality do you recognize yourself more, in the more sober and shy one on the Audrey model or in the more heated and sensual temperament of Marilyn and Sharon Stone?
