We all know for a fact that actress Julia Roberts is gorgeous. But to prove that she’s otherworldly kind of gorgeous, the Pretty Woman actress has just been crowned 2017’s ‘World’s Most Beautiful Woman’ by People magazine.
And this isn’t the first time 49-year-old Roberts has bagged the headline-worthy title. The magazine — which started ‘The 50 Most Beautiful People in the world’ list in 1990 — has named her the ‘Most Beautiful Woman in the World’ for a grand total of five times, according to People.com.
Responding to her win this year, Roberts told People that she is “very flattered.”
To celebrate this, we’ve compiled our very own list of gorgeous Asian celebs who we think are equally beautiful. Now scroll through the gallery to find out if your favourite stars have made it to our list.

Kim Tae Hee, actress
Admired by throngs of fans for her beauty, South Korean actress and International celebrity Kim Tae Hee is the perfect face for the girl-next-door look.
She broke into the entertainment scene with her debut hit drama Stairway to Heaven in 2003. The newcomer then proceeded to bag the New Star Award at SBS Drama Awards in the same year.
Fast forward to 2017, Kim wedded hunky Korean celebrity and singer Rain. And just last month, we flew to Kuala Lumpur to meet with the star herself.
Kim, who was there for Bonia’s flagship store opening, drew a massive crowd to Pavilion Kuala Lumpur shopping mall. Now that is what we call star power.
