Ten Beautiful Blonde Women and the Blue Eyes That Made Them Perfect
Can we really quantify beauty?
I have made no secret of my love for women with darker hair. But this does not mean that I do not find women of all varieties attractive. Someone recently asked me who I thought the most beautiful blond woman is, so I composed this list of my Top Ten. Most, you will see, also have blue or at least blueish eyes. In fact, they may all have blue eyes. I have not checked, but it would not surprise me. For to me, it is the softness of blue eyes that makes the blond perfection.
1. Tara Reid
Perhaps the perfect example of what a blue-eyed blonde truly is would be the amazing Ms. Tara Reid. She can at times appear completely innocent and cute while at other times appearing wanton and wild and other times falling somewhere salaciously in-between. It is easy to imagine her being your sister as easily as you could see her being your girlfriend. Her blond locks are like spun gold and her blue eyes are deep pools for your soul to dive into, knowing that there you may not find nirvana but you will at least find bliss.
Everyone perhaps knew a girl like Tara in high school. The perfect choice for a young man's fantasy though always frustratingly out of reach. When you think of the perfect woman in a physical sense, would it be easy to dream of a more beautiful girl? Of course not! Tara is as lovely as they come and any woman would be hard pressed to outshine her golden-haired perfection.
Lucky for us, Tara chose to become an actress. She gained her first real attention in the American Pie series of films though she got her start with smaller roles in movies such as Urban Legend, The Big Lebowski and Cruel Intentions. She would go on to star in films such as Josie and the Pussycats, Van Wilder and My Boss's Daughter. Sadly, since making Alone in the Dark in 2005, Tara's career has been a bit sluggish, but hopefully the America Pie Reunion film due out next year will kick start it again and bring on some better roles in the coming years.
2. Heather Thomas
Even a man fascinated by darker hair will tell you that Heather Thomas is nothing short of a goddess. A beautiful sun goddess, in fact, that is as radiant as a California sunset. Eyes as blue as the Pacific Ocean. Heather was quite popular in the 1980s when she starred on the television series The Fall Guy with Lee Majors. In addition to acting, she was a sought after pin-up model with a large line of posters that adorned many a young man's wall.
Heather continued acting through the 1990s but her popularity faded over the years and by the turn of the century she had left acting behind, her last film appearance being a bit part in the 1998 Billy Crystal comedy My Giant. She continued to stay in the spotlight however, becoming active in politics and political fund-raising. In 2008 she published a novel titled Trophies and returned briefly to acting in the film Girltrash: All Night Long.
3. Georgina Pota
There is a phrase many use when referring to a vivacious, energetic blonde who is always quick with a smile -- the bubbly blonde. No one personifies this better than Olympic table tennis star Georgina Pota. Though she did not win a medal in the 2008 Olympic Games, she certainly brightened up the table tennis event and helped propel the game to new heights of popularity.
This young lady has a dazzling smile to match her sparkling baby blues. It is no wonder she lights up a ping-pong game on looks alone, but add to this her high energy, fast-paced game play and you have a beautiful woman who is also a wonderful athlete. We all must know this is a winning combination!
4. Grace Kelly a.k.a. Princess Grace
Grace Kelly became known around the world when she began starring in television and film roles. Some of her major motion pictures included High Noon, Dial M for Murder, Rear Window, To Catch a Thief and High Society. One of the men who found this ravishing beauty so elegantly desirable was Prince Rainier III, the ruling monarch of Monaco. In April 1955, the two met while Grace was attending the Cannes Film Festival. The two began corresponding and in December of that same year, the Prince came to the United States and proposed to the soon to be Princess Grace.
It was dubbed the Wedding of the Century and even now, after the turn of the century, that title would only be disputed because of Princess Diana's extravagant affair. While the world would long for Princess Grace to continue her film career, it just was not a practical possibility. So we are left with only a few films to remember her by but so many are classics. Sadly, Princess Grace died in an auto accident in 1982.
5. Naomi Watts
I first discovered Naomi Watts on the television show Brides of Christ while I was living in Australia. Of course, in America she did not really become known until she starred in Mulholland Drive in 2001, roughly a decade after I had begun my infatuation with the fair-haired, blue-eyed British-Australian. After Mulholland Drive was The Ring and since that time it has been one hit after another, the most recent being Dream House.
6. Cody Kennedy
Cody Kennedy is an actress who is 2008 was named an "It Girl" along with Zooey Deschanel back in 2008 by Nylon magazine. While Cody's career has not taken off the way Zooey's has, in fairness it must be said Zooey had a bit of a head start with Zooey having already appeared in over 20 motion pictures including several lead roles compared to Cody's single brief appearance in one film. Cody has gone on to guest star on many television shows but has also made her mark as a model. An incredibly beautiful girl, I think we can expect great things in the future for Cody Kennedy.
7. Candice Swanepoel
Best known as a Victoria's Secret model, Candice Swanepoel was discovered in her homeland of South Africa when she was only 15 years old. Within a year she was already earning a living as a model. That was only seven years ago and now she is earning over $3 million per year. Not too shabby for a young lady who began working before finishing high school! But that does not mean Candice is not a smart young lady. She speaks three languages fluently and certainly seems to have no problem managing her business affairs!
8. Paris Hilton
I am sure you need no introduction to Paris Hilton. Perhaps she is just famous for being famous, as some have said, but there is realistically no denying her stunning beauty. Perhaps if she were not from a wealthy family she would be unknown, but then there are many beautiful women from wealthy families that have not obtained her level of fame. But even if she were not famous, she would still be beautiful. I just would not know her to put on this list which is a reminder that beautiful women are waiting everywhere to be discovered!
9. Elsa Pataky
Elsa Pataky began her acting career in her native Spain, working first with the Madrid theatre company, Teatro Cámara de Ángel Gutiérrez. She eventually moved on to Spanish television and films before working on some British and French co-productions. As she became fluent in French and English, she has moved on to American films such as the Fast Five. An incredibly beautiful woman, her mixed ancestry of Spanish, Hungarian and Romanian descent, she is such a perfect package!
10. Jamie Lee Williams
Jamie Lee Williams, or Miss Galaxy International 2011 if you prefer, is one of the most beautiful women to ever walk a pageant runway! The sunlight cascades off her golden locks and sparkles in her eyes of blue. She has a smile that can melt a glacier and the perfect body of a goddess. Did I save the best for last? It is so hard to make up my mind! So much beauty and yet the world holds so much more...

Yes, Yes, I know. Zooey is not a natural blonde and that is why she did not make the top ten. Or more specifically, she did not make it because she is not known as a blonde. Honestly I have no idea if the girls in the list above are natural blonds, but I believe they are. Either way, they all look incredible. But Zooey, who is so incredibly lovely with darker hair, seems to harness the light of angels when she lightens her hair. Perhaps it is those big eyes so filled with seductive allure. Or maybe it is the shimmering softness of her hair. Whatever it is, Zooey Deschanel is one gorgeous blonde.
As I mentioned before, there is so much beauty in the world that this one meager hub cannot hope to capture even the smallest part of it. What you see here is but a speck in an infinite universe of beauty. Certainly we can find this beauty among celebrities such as those pictured her on the right -- Cameron Diaz, Charlize Theron and a relatively undiscovered actress, Carly Schroeder. But beauty is really all around us.
Look at the faces you see each day. Beauty is not always so obvious as golden hair and blue eyes. The darkest mysteries might sometimes hold the deepest shades of allure. Look into her eyes, man! Look into her soul. There is beauty in us all but in a good woman that beauty is magnified a thousandfold.
I hope you have enjoyed sharing these lovely ladies with me, but more than that i hope you take away with you an understanding that we all have beauty practically in the palm of our hand. We can choose to appreciate it or we can choose to ignore it, but rest assured we cannot send it away. True beauty is as eternal as the earth beneath our feet and the sky above our heads.
When you feel the warmth of the sun upon your shoulders, let that radiance soak in. When you smell the fresh air tinged with morning dew, let that resplendence fill your soul. When your spirit is touched by an angel, grab hold and cherish the eternal bliss. When beauty welcomes you with open arms, do not turn away. Do not fear that you may not be worthy. Beauty is the birthright of all mankind, for we are born in the image of One whose beauty knows no boundaries.
Life is very good, my friends. The lesson is there for us all to learn, each day and every minute. Open your eyes so that you are not blind. Open your heart so that you are alive. Open your arms and receive the gift that we all long for. It is a beautiful world full of beautiful lives. So many good things await those who live in beauty. Will you join me as we travel along?
