With all of the talented and beautiful women in the world, have you ever wondered why we are always faced with seeing the same 10-15 faces on magazine covers? Largely, it is because of the celeb's intense public relations efforts. The other part, of course, is the paparazzi gets paid more for taking pics of specific celebs. So it pays to encourage super-stardom and keep all eyes directed toward those who are trending.
However, People magazine made popular the World's Sexiest and the World's Most Beautiful lists, but seriously, these lists are limiting because they tend to include predictable selections, such as those same 10-15 faces we have seen in every magazine throughout the previous year.
And to those actresses who are still making their way to mainstream notoriety, we want you to know you are not forgotten. There are so many understated, but gorgeous and sexy women that have not been chosen as number one of People magazine's Most Beautiful Women list, we created our own list of 13 who should definitely be considered. See what you think.
14 Ivanka Trump
Ivanka is so much more than a beautiful face, she is a seasoned business person first and foremost. As the Executive Vice President of Development & Acquisitions at The Trump Organization, she also acts as judge on The Apprentice and The Celebrity Apprentice. Married to successful businessman, Jared Kushner, they have had two children - Arrabella Rose and Joseph Frederick. Regardless of her last name or any reported plastic surgeries, Ivanka is gorgeous and her understated and classy personality add to her overall sexiness.
13 Roselyn Sanchez
This Puerto Rican singer-songwriter, actress, model is gorgeous and extremely talented. Her biggest claim to fame may be the roles she played in the CBS series, Without a Trace, Rush Hour 2 and her latest role as Carmen Luna in the hit series - Devious Maids. She began her career as a dancer and variety show co-host before moving to the U.S.. Today, she is married, a mother and still sizzling hot.
12 Kristin Kreuk
Kristin is a Canadian actress who is a mixture of Chinese and Dutch heritage. This unique combination is stunning. She is most known for her role as Laurel Yeung in Edgemont - a Canadian teen drama and Lana Lang in Smallville - the younger Superman series. Currently, this sexy actress can be seen in the CW's Beauty and the Beast as Detective Catherine Chandler. Although Kristin has not been named Sexiest Woman, her sexiness has not been overlooked by FHM Men Magazine's 100 Sexiest Women list several years in a row.
11 Brooklyn Decker
Model and actress, Brooklyn Decker has managed to parlay her Sports Illustrated Swimsuit success into a blossoming career in both film and television. Her roles in feature films, Just Go With It (2011) with Adam Sandler and What To Expect When You're Expecting (2012), really showcased her comedic timing and acting abilities. She co-starred on Friends With a Better Life (CBS - 2014), however the televisions series got cancelled after one season. Although she has been featured in People Magazine, she has not been cited as one of the sexiest - although Esquire magazine voted her Number One on their list in 2010.
9 Aishwarya Rai
Aishwarya Rai has been called one of the most beautiful women in the world, with the stand-out being her 1994 win of the Miss World crown, which started her film career. Her first debut was in Iruvar, in which she played two roles. The film was an enormous success. She has been married since 2007, has a daughter and still manages to appeal to men everywhere.
8 Catherine Bell
Catherine Bell is best known for her role as Lieutenant Colonel Sarah MacKenzie on JAG, which aired from 1997 to 2005 - and for playing Denise Sherwood on Army Wives (2007 - 2013). She has also starred in a series of made-for-television movies, The Good Witch, which is premiering as a series on the Hallmark Channel. This beautiful and über sexy actress has been featured in People magazine, but has never made it to top of the list.
7 Tricia Helfer
Tricia Helfer is one of those faces you see on television in a variety of roles. She began as a model after winning Ford Models' Supermodel of the World contest (1992) and had a long run as a fashion model. She parlayed that career into becoming the host for Canada's Next Top Model until she moved to L.A. to pursue larger opportunities. One of her most well known characters was as a humanoid Cylon Number Six in the more recent Battlestar Galactica television series (2003).

She co-starred in the 2006 hit The Devil Wears Prada, Iron Man 3 and most recently starred in the since-canceled television series, Satisfaction. Her French beginnings shine through, making her one gorgeous and sexy celeb who has never been listed in People's Most Beautiful list.
5 Gina Torres
Gina Torres has been a hit in several series, such as Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, Alias, Firefly, Angel, 24, The Shield and now USA Network's Suits.

This tall, slender British beauty is currently co-starring on Downton Abbey as Lady Rose MacClare. Her upcoming feature role as Cinderella in the new Disney version is going to make her a lifelong favorite for young girls everywhere. But when she isn't being proper in those two roles, Lily's more sexy and human side are being featured in many online and print magazines.
3 Joy Bryant
Joy Bryant has been included in a few issues of People magazine. The Bronx native was attending Yale prior to becoming a fashion model and actress (2001). Her role as Jasmine on Parenthood was strong, sexy and soft and we were sad to see it end after only five seasons. Bryant has not been featured in People magazine, but was considered #19 of BuddyTV's 100 Sexiest Women of 2011 list.
2 Teri Polo
Teri Polo is one of those actresses who has steadily worked her way up the ladder of fame. Her biggest break came when she was selected to co-star as Pam in Meet the Parents and its two sequels along with Ben Stiller.

Currently, she co-stars in a Jennifer Lopez produced television series, The Fosters, as a part of a lesbian couple.
