Which of these lovely ladies do you think is the most desirable?

India lacks a lot of things, but beauty ain't among them.

Indian women the world over have redefined the term beauty + brains.

Without further ado, check out our shortlist of ladies we think have a shot at being crowned the world's most desirable woman.

Don't forget to vote for your favourite, because the results depend on who gets the maximum number of votes.

Katrina Kaif

Half a billion hearts swerve a beat each time she bats her eyelids.

And it's a dumb list of most beautiful women that does not include Kat.

The buzz is that Ranbir Kapoor is Kat's go to guy now, but there are billions of guys out there who'd fulfil Kat's every whim!
