50 of the Most Beautiful Women Ever
« on: November 29, 2013, 09:44:44 AM »
Very tastefully and beautifully done.

For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

Wow....hauntingly beautiful the way they did it.

Thanks, Lando!

Given that group I wonder if there could ever be any consensus on the top 5. I'd say N. Wood and A. Margaret would have to be in that group.

Jane Russell is my all time favorite beauty, hands down.   She was beautiful on the inside, as well as the outside, being a staunch conservative up until the day she died.   She is also the God mother of infamous poster Deb at FR.

Helen Hunt?  Come on, seriously?  :shrug:

Honestly, as I watched...you need a pencil and paper if you're going to rank them.

They're all spectacular.   Audry Hepburn, Sophia Loren, Natalie Wood...


...although even back then Lana Turner looked crazy.   LOL!

They are displayed in the order of their birth years.

I'm slightly inclined to favor the Latin look-Sophia Loren, Raquel Welch, etc. They generally age extremely well.

But I like them all.

A slightly dissident view: as far as I can tell all of these women are actresses which means for these glamour shots they had access to the best makeup artists and photographers that could be found. That is not to say they are not attractive but "most beautiful"? Plus the pool could be expanded to include models like Cindy Crawford, who still looks hot, and Miss Universes and such.

While I am on the subject I will make an admission which might make me banned from the Guild of American Males. To wit, Marilyn Monroe never did anything for me. It's true. Otoh, I would crawl over broken glass naked just to have Raquel Welch pat me on the head. And she's a Libertarian/Conservative. Gorgeous woman.

Ingrid Bergman. Yes. Works perfectly for this green aura'd dude.

I so much agree, Lipstick!

Talk about being typecast...it never gave her the opportunity to leave I Love Lucy.  But she was a serious actress.  And beautiful.

Audrey Hepburn and Halle Berry. Tied for number one on my personal list.

Those two would be at the top of my list, along with Natalie Wood.  Helen Hunt I would replace Katherine Hepburn with Myrna Loy. I always thought Loretta Young, Betty Grable, and Jean Harlow were beautiful. I love watching the old movies.

Lucille Ball had her chance in the big screen cinema, but was unable to break out of the B role mode, which is one reason she went to television (another was to provide work for husband Desi Arnaz).

I put her up not only because she was so beautiful, but also for her amazing contributions to the film/TV comedy genre.  She was so talented, and an absolute work horse.

Of course, how they could leave Salma Hayek off the list is beyond me.   :laugh:

Pretty cool video.

For my money, if you could take Lauren Bacall, Katherine Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe and put them together, you'd have a hell of a woman.

It is nothing short of sad how she (and Priscilla Presley) destroyed their looks with plastic surgery.

Definitely in my top 5, plus Hedy was a total braniac. Example:
Quote
She and composer George Antheil invented an early technique for spread spectrum communications and frequency hopping, necessary for wireless communication from the pre-computer age to the present day.[

If she only owned a liquor store then...
