Looks like winning Ms. World (as she did back in 2000) isn’t enough for Priyanka Chopra. The Bollywood bombshell has defeated the likes of actress Blake Lively (No. 17) and supermodel Adriana Lima (No. 19) to come in as the second most beautiful woman in the world.
In a poll taken by celebrity site Buzznet, Chopra, who stars on the TV show “Quantico,” ranked second only to Beyoncé.
Chopra thanked her fans on Twitter for voting, noting that Beyoncé was her No. 1 as well.

Chopra was followed by Victoria Secret Angel Taylor Hill, Emma Watson, “Fifty Shades” actress Dakota Johnson, and interestingly Hillary Clinton at No. 6. Perennial favorite, Angelina Jolie came in eighth while supermodel and Kendall Jenner’s BFF, Gigi Hadid came in at 13. Buzznet collected more than 7 million votes in its poll, which resulted in the World’s 30 most beautiful women.
While Chopra is undoubtedly beautiful, she’s also a woman on a mission. She was named Unicef’s Goodwill Ambassador last year and created the Priyanka Chopra Foundation for Health and Education to support children in poverty across India. According to a recent interview in Glamour, the celebrated actress noted she gives 10 percent of her earnings to the charity.
Watch out for Chopra in this summer’s “Baywatch” film hitting theaters in May. The film also stars Hollywood’s highest-paid actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Zac Efron. (And be sure to read about how Zac Efron got in shape for his “Baywatch” role.)
Chopra hails from Jarkhand, an eastern Indian state, she’s the daughter of two physicians and spent time in the U.S. during her teenage years, where she fell in love with acting.
