Hot actresses and their "beauty" films?

Can anyone think of the movies that really zone in on an actress' beauty? For example, a perfect example of what I'm looking for is a movie like Malena which showcases Monica Bellucci's beauty, not just in a cameo or a quick nude scene, but in a leading role. I mean a film in which the director totally focuses on the beauty of the actress throughout the whole film. I know it may be hard to narrow it down to one film since these actresses are hot, but please try.

Monica Bellucci - Malena
Natelie Portman - Closer (although V for Vendetta is close)
Jessica Biel - Texas Chainsaw Massacre
Jessica Alba - Into The Blue
Jennifer Connelly - Career Opportunities
Megan Fox - Transformers
Salma Hayek - Desperado
Eva Green - The Dreamers
Liv Tyler - Stealing Beauty
Halle Berry - Swordfish (although Catwoman/Die Another Day are close)
Angelina Jolie - Wanted (although Beowolf and Gia are close)
Charlize Theron - 2 Days in the Valley (although Hancock and Aeon Flux are close)
Emma Suárez - The Red Squirel
Leonor Watling - Talk to Her (although Sound of the Sea is close)
Kirsten Dunst - Bring It On
Blake Lively - Accepted
Cameron Diaz - The Mask
Naomi Watts - Mulholland Drive
Hellen Mirren - Age of Consent
Raquel Welch - 1 Million Years B.C.
Sharon Stone - Basic Instinct
Catherine Deneuve - ?
Sophie Marceau - ?
Isabella Adjani - ?
Sofía Vergara - ?
Paz Vega - ?

Can anyone think of any others. I'm actually mainly looking for foreign actresses since a lot of times, we don't get all their movies released in the States (Paz Vega for example - most americans know her in Spanglish or Sex y Lucia, but I know she's done tons of Spanish flicks I don't know about)

From early cinema, there's only one actress I can think of that has contemporary, undated hot looks from this movie.

Paulette Goddard - Charlie Chaplin's "Modern Times"

It's like she is a hot actress from the present and somehow time-traveled to the past:

If you're looking for one featuring Paz Vega, check out Carmen. The film itself is mediocre, but she looks great as the mysterious, sensual lead.

Also, Priceless definitely showcases Audrey Tautou for her pure beauty -- moreso than Amelie, which hinges on her charm.

I've seen the movie but can not believe that I didn't take notice of that beauty.

Some other fav's:

Very attractive woman.

Pierrot le Fou. Band of Outsiders is B & W. I think any Russ Meyer film would fit the bill.

though i still find her extremely attractive...rachel weisz in THE MUMMY. just something about her in that film. i think it's because she still has a little baby fat which makes her face a little fuller.
