The world is changing and with it comes a variety of cross-bred cultures, religions and of course nationalities. We are constantly seeing different looks pop up in the fashion industry with stunning models dazzling us with their elegance and grace. Before you judge us on compiling a shallow list of cosmetic beauty, please understand that we also believe beauty is created from the inside out too. Following on from our post on Top 10 Countries With The Most Handsome Men – we bring you our follow up with the women..
Frieda Pinto, Aishwarya Rai and Sonakshi Singh are just 3 reasons why India makes this list. Indian women have breathtaking eyes, long flowing dark hair and perfectly symmetrical faces that often see them steal the show on many global stages. The fact that Aishwarya Rai has been called the most beautiful woman on the planet is testament to that fact.
Besides giving the world poutine, the Canadians also managed to produce some of the planet’s most stunning women. From supermodel Linda Evanalista to beauties like Jessica Stam, Coco and Shalom Harlow, we are convinced that there is something in the drinking water that keeps the bar set very high. Even Living360’s editor-in-charge Amanda Dyer is the product of Canada’s supermodel factory!
From the beauty of Xhosa women to the exotic looks of women of Cape Malay heritage, blonde beauties like Candace Swanepoel and Charlize Theron to the undeniable appeal of South African Indians and everything else in between, South Africa undoubtedly has some of the world’s most beautiful women.
Considering the fact that some of the world’s most celebrated supermodels hail from Brazil, it’s no wonder that they produce some of the most beautiful faces on earth. From Adriana Lima, Gisele Bundchen and Morena Baccarin to Lais Ribeiro and Alessandra Ambrosio, the beauty of Brazilian women is well represented and simply captivating.
Latino women are on many “most beautiful” and “most desirable” lists thanks to the likes of Eva Mendes and Salma Hayek. Puerto Rican women have the beautiful and distinct features which we see on beauties like Jennifer Lopez, Roselyn Sanchez, Dayanara Torres, Joan Smalls and Rosario Dawson.
Ziyi Zhang, Lucy Liu, Gaile Lok and Fan Bingbing gracefully represent the beauty of Chinese women. Their enchanting stare with a perfectly symmetrical facial structure is often cause for a double take when walking down the street in Shanghai.
Claudia Schiffer, Heidi Klum and Diane Kruger are just a few examples of the beauty to come out of Germany. Many other German beauties and women of German descent like Kirtsten Dunst can be seen on runways, sports fields and TV screens. Like Sweden the country is associated with ‘The Beautiful Blonde’.
Brigitte Bardot is considered to be one of the most beautiful faces to ever grace TV screens. She has a beauty that became associated with her country – an iconic cult figure that resonates with French classiness. Today, France can boast about the likes of Marion Cortillard, Vanessa Paradis, Eva Green, Noémie Lenoir and singer Shy’m to show off the beauty in their stable.
Jamaica and Trinidad
These are two of many Caribbean countries that have produced some of the most beautiful ladies alive, including Kerry Washington who is of Jamaican descent and Nicki Minaj who hails from Trinidad. Other famous beautifies with Caribbean roots include singer Rihanna, Meagan Good, Tia and Tamera Mowry as well as Selita Ebanks.
As this compilation clearly shows, beauty doesn’t have just one representation or the same source. There are beautiful women everywhere, who look different and sport their own quirks and unique attributes. This is something we continue to celebrate because it speaks to the diversity of our wonderful planet. This allows us to keep an open mind and gain the valuable understanding that every single place on this earth, even the smallest island on the map is able to give us beauty and wonderful things worth admiring.
