Every year, People Magazine awards one lucky lady the title of “World’s Most Beautiful Woman,” which is an altogether bold and absurd concept to begin with. People, a glorified tabloid magazine, decides who the best looking woman on earth is. Coincidentally, it’s almost always an actress, a singer, or some sort of celebrity. What are the odds?
This year was no different, as People once again has decided who we all, collectively, must agree is ranked #1. I’m not sure exactly what their criteria is or what the decision is based on, but I’m sure it’s an intense and complicated algorithm that only the experts over at People Magazine can decipher. Some previous winners of the prestigious nod include:
Lupita Nyong'o in 2014
Gwyneth Paltrow in 2013
Beyoncé in 2012
and Jennifer Lopez in 2011
And for 2015? Yup, you guessed it! Sandra Bullock! Wait, what?
That’s right, People Magazine selected Sandra Bullock as the most beautiful woman on the planet for this year. Don’t get me wrong, she definitely is beautiful, but it just seems like an odd choice, doesn’t it? She isn’t exactly at the apex of her career, nor is she making very many headlines these days. It’s not that I disagree; I’m just a little bit surprised. It’s not who I’d have selected, but then again, I’m not People Magazine. That’s why they get to make the call!
