World's Most Beautiful issue is on sale April 26, but we're giving you a weekly sneak peek at some of the most gorgeous women around. Meet Danai Gurira, 35:

How you know her
The Iowa-born actress and playwright wields a mean sword as Michonne on AMC's The Walking Dead.

Her hair evolution
"One day I had to wear a wig cap, and I said, 'That kind of works.' " says Gurira, who sported an Afro in college. "As soon as I could, I cut it all off, and I haven't looked back since."

Feeling beautiful on-set
"Playing a zombie-apocalypse survivor is an un-glam job, but the makeup artists figure out how to pop your eyes and make your skin still look great without it showing."

Her beauty must-haves
"A good pair of earrings and a lip gloss. I'm bald, so the earrings always make me feel like, 'Okay, I'm popping.' "
