I don't think Angelina Jolie has been a contender for the most beautiful for several years.

I think she would look better with 10lbs on her. She needs the fat in her face because she has such a broad mouth and wide-set eyes.

Not sure if this link will take you to the the pic I'm looking at but look at her arms:

She looks good though and I think it's great that she's lost the weight.
I saw her pic on a Weight Watchers poster at work, and she looks great there. She's wearing a pretty brown dress and some shoes I covet. I wish I could find a photo.

Not to mention an industrial-strength undergarmet that is probably so tight she can hadly breathe.

Depends on who's doing the considering. Baroque art is known for its depiction of hefty, ripple-thighed women as objects of beauty; the term Rubenesque is used to describe a rotund woman, because Rubens turned fat into a fashion trend.

With the exception of modern fashion, thick hips, breasts, thighs, were always preferred to thinness; it represented a woman of means, wealth, culture, leisure, and clothing styles often were made to accentuate these things, and diminish the waist. Consider the push-up bra - one of the most popular womens' accessories in modern fashion. It is designed to make a woman's chest VOLUPTUOUS. If thin truly were in, flat-chested women would be all the rage, and minimizer bras would be flying off the shelves.

Anyone want to get into the whole J-Lo Butt thing? If you can perch a Pepsi on it, it's worth having. Even maternity clothes have gotten a whole new twist; where once, the belly was obscured by peter-pan collars and no-waist tent-like blouses that went far below the hips, now it's all about the big, bold round belly. The more spandex to show it off, the better.

Personally I think it's a ridiculous question. But if you really WANT to know if thin is considered "prettier" than curved and voluptuous, I'd have to conclude that the fashion industry, and the art world, say absolutely not.

Really? I guess that could be. But the shoes were still really cute.
