Most Beautiful 2009

World's Most Beautiful People

From superstars like Kate, Salma and Carrie to hot newcomers (the cast of Gossip Girl!), get a peek at who's on PEOPLE's 100 Most Beautiful list!

Onscreen, they are gorgeous, scheming, backstabbing high schoolers. Off-screen, Blake Lively, Chace Crawford, Ed Westwick, Jessica Szohr, Penn Badgley, Leighton Meester and Taylor Momsen (clockwise from bottom) are still gorgeous but somewhat kinder to one another. "I assure you," says Badgley, "we are all fun and charming as hell."
