'People' mag tags world's beauties


"Who's handsome? What's gorgeous? Where does sublime reside?"

People magazine asks and answers these burning questions in this week's double issue, "The 50 Most Beautiful People in the World, 1996."

Mel Gibson and Michelle Pfeiffer both make the list for the fifth time, putting them in a tie with John K. Kennedy Jr. He didn't rate a spot this year in what usually becomes one of People's biggest sellers.

People tells us that not everyone was to the camera born. David Duchovny, of TV's "The X Files," says his older brother called him ugly and friends knew him as "Big Nose" and "Big Lips."

Other familiar faces in the People pantheon include Fran Drescher, Martha Stewart, Demi Moore, Nicole Kidman, Jon Bon Jovi, George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Quincy Jones, Susan Sarandon, Pierce Brosnan, Johnny Depp, Brooke Shields and Gail O'Grady, the big-haired Donna Abandando of "NYPD Blue."
