PEOPLE's Most Beautiful: A Look Back at the Covers

From a 29-year-old Jodie Foster and a baby-faced Leo to three-time covergirl Julia, see who's graced our Most Beautiful issues

MEG RYAN, 1994

The actress, then 32, was still married to Dennis Quaid and promoting the film When a Man Loves a Woman when she made the cover of PEOPLE's 50 Most Beautiful issue. Daniel Day-Lewis, Toni Braxton and –whoa! – Joey Lawrence (then on Blossom) also appeared on the cover.
