The Shah's first wife was Fawzia, princess of Egypt. But she isn't well known at all. So yes, the one you mean was Soraya, his second wife. Soraya was an outstanding beauty. I agree that she was in the same league as Paola and Grace.

I agree, both women were beautiful but I think Fawzia had something more, maybe because she has a more classic look.

Why is there no Anne Marie of Greece in this poll? :(
I've always thought of Anne Marie. She's pristinely beautiful and gives off the impression of a shy beauty that is so charming. Truly amazing beauty even more beautiful than any renowned beauty I know until now.
In my own opinion :)

But for this poll, Paola, Queen of the Belgians gets my vote, too. She was very beautiful even when she just stares somewhere with a blank expression! Although her beauty somewhat faded away when she reached her 40's (smoking, ehem), no one can beat her beauty among the other choices in this poll back in their 20's-30's.

Queen Silvia is very beautiful back then until now, too!
Queen Margrethe is also a stunning beauty since her teens to the time she reached mid-30's. Well the 3 Danish sisters were real beauties!

Vanesa.
I sooo much agree with you, Vanesa. GD Maria Nikolaevna (the one in my avatar) is the most beautiful woman I consider, that if ever I had a choice to choose how I'd look like before I was born, I would choose to look like her! (copycat xD

Princess Alix of Hesse-Darmstadt later the last Tsarina of Russia, Alexandra Feodorovna, is a very beautiful woman, too. She has a sad expression in most of her photos back then but when she smiles, awesome! However, her elder sister, Princess Elisabeth of Hesse-Darmstadt later GD Elizaveta Feodorovna of Russia is more beautiful~ethereally beautiful!!
With regards to Nicholas II's daughters, the GD Tatiana Nikolaevna is the most beautiful actually - an ethereal beauty, too - and I bet had she lived and became Edward VIII of UK's wife, she would've outshone all the queens back in 1920's. She looks very, very beautiful, too - when she had short hair like Audrey Hepburn's, she looked more beautiful than Audrey (why? Because she had no makeup then and yet looked stunning)

However, I'm too biased - will forever be Maria Nikolaevna's fan. She's forever #1 followed by Anne-Marie.

I agree. Anne-Marie of Greece was one of the most beautiful young princesses in Europe!

Might it be because Anne-Marie was never a Crown Princess? She went from being a Danish princess to a Greek queen.

Only a couple of women were in Paola's league imo, the last Shah of Iran's first wife(was her name Soraya?) and of course Princess Grace.
HRH The Princess of Liege (later HM Queen Paola of the Belgians) and HRH The Princess of Hanover,
(the former - twice) Hereditary Princess of Monaco; Caroline was Hereditary Princess of Monaco from her birth until Prince Albert's birth 14 months later, and again from Albert's accession to the the Monegasque throne in 2005 until her niece's, HSH Princess Gabriella (who herself was Hereditary Princess for 2 minutes), birth

I see that mostly European ladies have been mentioned in the thread. While I won't say she was the most beautiful crown princess I think she was one of the most beautiful - Crown Princess Sangey Deki of Sikkim. She died at 25 before becoming queen. Her husband, Palden Thondup Namgyal, went on to marry the American Hope Cook who became the new crown princess.

There are not a lot of photos of Sangey Deki.

This is the first one I ever saw of her:

Darjeeling Unlimited :: Princess from Tibet

This short pdf file is about her life and includes what few photos exist of her. It is titled 'Princess from Tibet' because she was Tibetan.

I voted for Silvia, because, of those in the list, I think she was the most beautiful. Paola was lovely, but there's something about Silvia's face that I prefer. If Grace Kelly had been in the list, she would have had my vote.

All those in the list are Europeans, but there have been, and are, some real beauties to the East.

They are all beautiful ladies but none were crown princesses. I was trying to think of someone who was a crown princess at some point. Of course some of the choices in the poll were never crown princesses either so I suppose it doesn't really matter.

There are several very beautiful crown princesses from older generations, such as crown princess Margareta of Sweden (née princess Margaret of Connaught), princess Alexandra of Wales (née princess Alexandra of Denmark) and her sister tsarevna Maria Feodorovna of Russia (née princess Dagmar of Denmark), or crown princess Cecilie of Prussia (née duchess Cecilie of Mecklenburg-Schwerin).

I don't understand why Queen Silvia is an option. She was never a Princess. She married a King therefore becoming Queen.
