2006's Most Beautiful Star: Angelina Jolie
"The proportion of her face is beautiful," director Oliver Stone says of Jolie (in Versace at the Mr. & Mrs. Smith premiere last summer). "She's a great package, beautifully put together."
Traveling to earthquake-ravaged northern Pakistan last Thanksgiving, Angelina Jolie, then 30, boarded a private plane for the 20-plus-hour journey from Los Angeles without a single Louis Vuitton suitcase in sight. Instead, the actress-activist-object of Brad Pitt's affection grabbed a lightweight field bag and, as she usually does, packed the bare minimum: one Pakistani dress and head cover (to honor local custom); one pair of sturdy boots (for mountain climbing to distribute blankets and food).

For the three nights she was in the field, Jolie – who was accompanied by Pitt, then 43, but left kids Maddox, then 4, and Zahara, then 16 months, back in town – was her typical low-maintenance self, sleeping on the frozen ground in a tent shared with three other workers and wearing the same clothes day after day. No hairbrush. No makeup. Not even a toothbrush. "She really blends in and is very unassuming," says Guenet Guebre-Christos, representative in Pakistan for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, for which Jolie serves as a goodwill ambassador. "She could have passed for any other Pakistani person."
