I read an article once about trying to figure out who the most famous woman ever was, if I recall Mary (Jesus's mom) was 1st, but Diana was in the top five.
Thinking about famous and reknown, Diana is up there but she was what... a media blitz for 2 decades. Although she did good works and called attention to a lot of things that were needed to be addressed, most of the blitz was about her private life. I think for the 20th century, I'd pick Mother Teresa over any of them. I've read where Diana respected her highly and it was notable to me that they both passed on around the same time.

She didn't need to wear couture to look stunning either. But I do agree just wearing couture does not make you stunner.

Mother Teresa for a saint is the top for me to. But there are other categories that famous women stand out too. BTW did you know Mother Teresa at the end of her life question is G-d exists? I think with all she saw of the poorest of the poor she must have been clinically depress.

Diana, Princess of Wales passed at the weekend and Mother Teresa during the week. All attention was on Princess Diana's funeral and Mother Teresa just on the day she was laid to rest.

I really think this topic is to board for a person to answer with just one woman. The topic needs to be more specific. Like the end of the 20th century who was the most famous woman.

Isn't it intriguing that both women died the same week. It's unfortunate that Mother Teresa's death was overshadowed by Diana's. If MT had died another time I think a much bigger deal would have been made out of it, and rightly so.

I think that is very possible. All of us go through spiritual crisis where we look at and question our beliefs and its those questions that make us stronger. Diana, herself, was always seeking out and asking questions along these lines too I believe.

I don't remember Mother Teresa's death being shocking it was sad but it wasn't shocking because she was elderly. Where as Diana's death was shocking because she was young and healthy. It was ironic that two great women in their own rights died in the same week.

I thought when they both died that we lost two great humanitarians. I don't think we have had persons since to fill their shoes. The world got a little darker that week.

The most beautiful woman? Of course not. The most famous one? I don't hope so! There have been so many important and intelligent women who have done truly good work in the 20th century, I would be depressed if we would only remember a woman that was such a drama but wore beautiful frocks!

With all due respect she was of course not the most beautiful woman of the century. Don't get me wrong she was a very attractive woman but cmon 100 years saw many many ladies far more prettier.
Concerning the "famous" side i believe she was probably ONE of the most famous women of the last century, for good or bad reasons btw, in a long list of icons...

Marilyn Monroe is far from the most beautiful woman of the 20th century. She was gorgeous though.

She was one of many women that did good works in the 20th century. The woman in your avatar wore beautiful clothes and caused a lot of drama herself and yet we remember Margaret. And she was very beautiful in her youth.

She's definately Top 5 but I doubt she's #1. She's up there with Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, and Jackie Kennedy.......and maybe Madonna.

So, she's the most famous, the most beautiful AND an Angel, I hear... Ok, did anyone of you that think of her as an Angel meet her? Spent a couple days with her? Maybe you should have done that, cause it's the only way to find out if she was made of angel material.

Noor no one here said she was an angel. She wasn't an angel nor was she an evil witch either.

The woman in my avatar isn't a subject in this thread and as far as I know it wasn't her who has given the Panorama interview.

Regardless if she's not subject in this thread she proved my point. Anyway I won't go down that route on who caused more embarrassment its pointless.
