Charismatic, Western-educated Prime Minister of Pakistan; 36. Married to businessman Asif Ali Zardari; two children (the younger, Benazir, born in January, shown here). "She had a kind of Arabian Nights aura that clung to her like an exotic perfume....and though she wore dingy Levi's to class like the rest of us, she had a closet bulging with saris."—Writer Anne Fadiman on Bhutto at Harvard
