Top 10 Most Beautiful Women of 2012

Like every year askmen, People and maxim make the list of the most beautiful woman in showbiz. Of course, I mostly disagree with their list so I decided to make my own List. If you don’t like this your probably a woman.

The list consists of women’s in the entertainment industry, not porn obviously. Most of them that I have seen in movie, TV or on the internet apart from Aishwarya Rai who I have met personally at BAFTA and she was beyond beautiful of what I had thought of her. I have also met Michelle Ryan for who I had done some editing, and she has the most beautiful eyes I have seen in the UK.

Just because I don’t have any dark skin actresses on my list doesn’t mean I am racist. I just don’t know of that many dark skinned actresses.

this list is my opinion, my criteria and my choice if you don’t agree go F*cking make your own list but if you have any new suggestions you are most welcome.

Vote For Your favourite out of this list, at the bottom of this blog.

    Wow good list but I think u missed Penelope Cruz and I would have to say I completely disagree with your ranking of Cobie Smulders at No. 1 Aishwariya is much prettier than Cobie.

    • oh ya i do like Penelope Cruz:P
      oh ya Penelope Cruz beautiful, she was amazing in Volver. Aishwarya rai is all time number one but recently i have been watching how i met your Mother and Cobie is what i call a perfect girl 10/10 where is Aishwarya Rai is beyond beautiful so i went with Cobie as she is more real yet beautiful.

  • Ramya Patnaik I don’t care about any of them but I’m fucking stoked you put Callie on the list 😀 😀

  • If you are looking for dark-skin nominees how about Zoe Saldana (Star Trek)?

    • Zoe Saldana looks pretty, but I havent really seen any of her film apart from Avatar 😛 but if i had to choose one dark skinned girl, then it would be Halle Berry. scene of her coming out of sea in James Bond is still stuck in my head.
