For the sake of argument lets say "now" meaning about the past 5-10 years, since one may have recently "taken a dive" looks wise...the intent being fairly current stars vs the "classics." And pls no obscure picks, ie just people who are or were very well known in their time:

A toughie but I go (in no special order):

TOP 5 EVER
Elizabeth Montgomery
Ann Margaret
Donna Reed
Ingrid Bergman
Sophia Loren

(Hon mention to Sally Field and Raquel Welch)

TOP 5 RECENT
Charlize Theron
Jennifer Aniston
Michelle Pfieffer (sp)
Meg Ryan
Catherine Zeta-Jones


MOST OVERRATED
To be honest I could list a zillion, most of them the newer celebs, really. Nowdays it seems tacky, even slutty, is increasingly considered attractive; how bizarre. Class is all but dead, it seems. Too much makeup, "hairdos" that either look like they just woke up or were run over by a lawn mower...the fake puffy lips, the fakey boobs....I will never get why any of that is considered attractive , bu to each their own I guess.

Of the older beauties, Marilyn Monroe and similar blonde bombshell types come to mind, and for similar reasons. "Fake" is so unattractive IMO.

Also pretty much any of the so-called "supermodels," who are mostly these ultra-skinny, sneering, grungy bimbos. super puke.

More generally, Katherine Hepburn comes to mind. Great great actress and credit for having a different look about her, but even in her prime IMO wasn't all that amazing looking. Likewise Lauren Bacall.
