I’ve been meaning to post a list like this for a very long time. Maxim has their list. Askmen does theirs. I want my own list of beautiful women! I think it will be fun to do this every year, and compare them from year to year. When you delve into your own personal tastes like I have with this list, you learn things about yourself as well. I enjoyed compiling it, and I hope you enjoy checking it out.
First some info before we get to the list itself. This isn’t a list of “hot” women. It is also not a list of “sexy” women. I think the women on this list are hot and sexy, but for me this is a list of Beautiful women. Beautiful trumps just “hot” or “sexy” any time. Also, I’m not saying there aren’t other lovely women out there. There are many, many awesome women who are not on my list. Also, these are women who appeal to just me. This is my opinion, and mine alone. You will notice that the list is, for the most part, comprised of mostly white women. Don’t take this as I don’t believe that there are women of other races who are also beautiful. Indeed there are many, many other beautiful celebrities who are not on this list. These are just the ones who appeal to me the most. So when you check this list out, please keep all this in mind – and also the following:
- The Celebrities need to be at least 18 to be on the list. However, among the women who I think are more beautiful, the ones 23 and older are sorted first – even if I think a girl who is 18-22 is more attractive. Woman are, more or less, insane, but until they’re like 23, 24, 25 they are, for the most part, even more out of control. (Tongue in cheek!, but there is *some* truth to this in my opinion!) So I’m going to keep the younger ones further down on the list. Sometimes it’s hard to do that, though. Take Kate Upton for instance – OMG! She is amazing, and totally would be #1 or #2 on my list if I didn’t follow my rules, but she was only 19 in 2011.
- I prefer long hair, so women who kept their hair shorter in 2011 are further down the list if they’re on it at all.
- I have zero love for tattoos, so women who have several will also be lower on the list than they otherwise would be (Megan Fox), if they are on it at all. Why do people feel like they need to permanently carve things on them that provide personal inspiration, or things that are near and dear to their hearts? Why can’t your character provide that inspiration? Why can’t your heart and soul remind you of things that are near and dear? It all just seems ridiculous, full of vanity, and empty to me. It really ties into my dislike for make-up (see below). It is a testament to how beautiful I think Megan Fox is that she is even on the list at all, let alone how high she is ranked. She’d be in the top 5 easy if she didn’t have the tats, and she could even stand to gain some weight. Sorry, I digress….
- I prefer women with curves as opposed to women who are rail thin. That doesn’t necessarily mean big boobs, but a sweet rack is always fun. Being a curvy woman in my mind, though, is more about having hips and an ass that pops. I also love women with curvy legs because they have great calves. Women who are less curvy are likely to be lower on the list, if they are on it at all.
- Other things factor into placement, but on a lesser scale. Like I prefer lighter colored eyes (blues, greens, and even hazel with more green than brown); I more appreciate women who seem more “down home” or “girl next doorish” (Jennifer Love Hewitt – everyone in the top 15ish or so) than ones who are more overtly sexual; and I prefer women who go for a more natural look than ones who you can tell wear a ridiculous amount of makeup (Katy Perry). I don’t understand why women think wearing pounds of makeup makes them more attractive. I’ve seen pics of Katy Perry with no makeup on – she doesn’t need all that garbage on her face. It’s ridiculous. I guess all you chicks think you can improve the look of the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel just by throwing more paint on it as well. Lunatics! If you don’t have an identity that you carry for yourself from within, which therefore makes you shine, and you have to do ridiculous things with your makeup or your hair to make yourself stand out, then who the F are you? Do you even know?
- What so many women nowadays don’t seem to understand is this: less is more. You shouldn’t be able to tell that you’re wearing any makeup. To those of you who put too much on – it often makes you look like a drag queen. I’m watching Celebrity Apprentice right now (it’s March of 2012 as I write this), and Debbie Gibson, I swear, looks like a drag queen with all the crap that’s on her face. I don’t understand it.
- Speaking of makeup – I wish I could prevent women from ever putting lipstick on ever again. It often looks garish and fake. I especially hate red lipstick. Ugh – just ugh all to hell and back. Something closer to a natural lip tone, and even some lighter shades of pink, are fine if you must wear lipstick. However, I prefer it if you’d just put something on to shine your lips rather than color them. Lip gloss, or even lip balm, is a billion times better than lipstick in my opinion.
Other arbitrary things go into making the list as well; it’s all personal taste. Heck, more than likely no one else is going to give an F who I think is beautiful – which is of course all good with me. My blog is here more for me than anyone else. So on that note, and without further ado, here is the link to my list of the top 82 Beautiful Women Celebrities of 2011.*
*The list was originally supposed to be the top 77. I set it up that way because Top 100 gets done all the time, and Top 99 is with askmen.com. So I figured I’d go with a number that means something to me. I went with 77 because that’s the number of my football jersey in my pee-wee days, and I just like that number. The list became 82 because I just wanted to include those 5 women in the list as well.
