The past April, People Magazine named actress Gwyneth Paltrow the year's "Most Beautiful Woman", and we agree!  Gwyneth has a very distinct and foxy kind of look and of course she's very talented!

We've all seen Gwyneth is movies like Iron Man, Shallow Hal, and the Avengers. She made her singing debut in the movie Country Strong.  She has also written three books on recipes and is a Save The Children artist ambassador.
