Pretty sure that a beautiful skyscraper is a matter of personal opinion. Not what everyone else wants you to think it is. I could be wrong though, but I think I'll wait for the Oxford to change the definition.

Chrysler is dominating and cannot be beaten.

From what has been posted so far, my choice is the Chrysler Building and then the Taj Mahal.

Apart from the obvious that I love such as the Chrysler:

There's the Reichstag - Which is amazing:

And as for the modern, London's Gherkin:

For modern skycrapers , I choose petronas twins towers in kuala lumpur. The twins towers are the most beautiful towers that i've ever seen so far. The skybridge is brilliant.

Well, I think the thread name should be changed. I think just "Beautiful Buildings" would be better statement.

And If you don't mind I'll post something from Poland: Rondo 1 skyscraper
