Nichelle Nichols

Beautiful as a famous young songstress in France, she was later known in America as an actress. She portrayed the communications officer Uhura of Star Trek The Original Series.

Nichelle, who was named Grace at birth, is also an author of the Saturn's Child science fiction novel series.

She is beautiful in word and actions as well as in appearance during her senior years as well as during her youth. She wrote an autobiography that included some surprising material from her Star Trek® years.

I have met this celebrity and role model her at conventions, where she has helped recruit minorities and women for NASA. She is fantastic.

Please enjoy her newest Star Trek film featured below, Of Gods and Men.

Natalie Portman

This particular actress is a favorite of science fiction fans around the world, ever since seeing her work in Star Wars as Queen Amidala, wearing the unique clothing, makeup, and hairstyles of the character.

Halle Berry

Lovely as herself, as CatWoman, and even lovelier in her pregnancy photos seen often now in the news.

Ms. Berry's work on the TV series Extant in 2014 and 2015 is better than some high budget theater films.

She will surely remain a star for long to come.

Lena - Stormy Weather & If You Believe

Lena Horne And Phylicia Rashad

Lena Horne

Ms. Lena Horne is another great songstress lovely in youth and in later years.

From her role in Cabin in the Sky to several future more substantial roles in classic films of the Golden Age of TV and Movies to her classic rendition of the number Stormy Weather, she is a beauty for the ages.

Phylicia Rashad

Beautiful her whole life, apparently, this woman is a talented and well known actress, singer and stage director.

Excellent in two TV series with Bill Cosby and a star on Broadway.

Mariska Hargitay

Exotic looking even in the TV series Law and Order:Special Victims Unit, becoming the head of the SVU division in the series. She is an activist and advocate against violence to women and minorities.

She is the daughter of actress Jane Mansfield and body builder Mickey Hargitay.

Jane Mansfield

Beautiful and blond, she made many B-level movies, but had studied physics at Southern Methodist University.

She played the violin beautifully as well and had more potential than she was able to access, dying in an automobile crash at the age of 34.

Uma Pemmaraju

Strikingly beautiful on television newscasts - specifically "America's News Headquarters with Uma Pemmaraju" for the Fox News. I'd like to see her on other networks as well.

Shakira

In my opinion, more beautiful than Britney Spears or Christina Aguilara.

And she can dance -- Hips don't lie (One of her popular songs).

Claudette Colbert

Ms. Claudette Colbert was a famous film star of the 1930s and 1940s who continued to act and model well into her 70s.

This actrerss did two of the many "nude-except-for-a-mink-coat" photo layouts done by famous women for BlackGlamma Mink her 20s and again in her 70s and you could not tell the difference.

Not Airbrushed Or PhotoShopped

Artists and photographers found it much more difficult to retouch photos in the antique 1970s magazines than it is with us today, so Ms. Colbert looked amazingly good, even in her 70s.

BlackGlamma still does such fur ads, with younger celebrities, so look for them.

The series was begun during an era when wearing fur signaled high social status and wealth. Today, stars like Janet Jackson and others are posing in mink.

Beauty In The Comics

Honorary Mention: Octobriana.

This figure was a comics heroine of the 1914 October Revolution in Russia. Her look has changed for the 21st century, but I think the image of her in an antique 1960s edition I have seen is dazzling! The image to the right is a more modern issue.

Uhura has great legs. Halle Berry is an alltime favorite of mine. Natalie Portman is skeletal and icky. Great list I agree with all except Natalie.

What about Elizabeth Taylor in the 1950s?


Isabella Snow profile image

Isabella Snow 9 years ago

Wow.. what an interesting list! I agree with Nichelle Nichols - I saw her on Heroes the other day and was stunned by how beautiful she still is. No wonder Capt Kirk wanted her. ;)


Patty Inglish, MS profile image

Patty Inglish, MS 9 years ago from North America Author

jimmy - that's the best comment you could have ever made!

Ralph - just my personal opinion, of course! - your hub is great.

lovemeanddie1988 - Let's do a Top 10 Most Beautiful Hubbers!!!

Gredmondson - I just don't care for that style of beauty I guess. -- I'm weird.

Isabella - Nichelle was on HEROES??? I must watch more often!

Thank you manoharv2001 - it was fun!!


Patty Inglish, MS profile image

I'd also add Scarlett Johansson, Sandra Bullock, and Rene Zellwigger.

Nice hub Patty, and a great list. Very Diverse, and I couldn't argue with a single one! As for Hoodala's comments about Natalie, I can see how people can find her "skeletal", but to me she has a very Audrey Hepburn quality about her.... and I wouldn't call her skeletal or either one "icky" ;-)


Patty Inglish, MS profile image

Patty Inglish, MS 9 years ago from North America Author

That's it - Audrey Hepburn. You're right! Thanks for the comment. I also enjoyed her composure as Queen Amidala in her first Star Wars episode - at 18 or 19 years old, that took a lot of concentration, I think.


Ralph Deeds profile image

Ralph Deeds 9 years ago

I wouldn't call Natalie Portman skeletal, either. "Elfin" might be the right word for her. In "Closer" she played a lap dancer quite convincingly, as I recall. And she has all the equipment for it. And she's a Harvard graduate, I believe. Beauty and brains in a single package.


Patty Inglish, MS profile image

Patty Inglish, MS 9 years ago from North America Author

Ralph - Elfin is a good word too.

I remember her on SNL where she was hilarious in a number of sketches - the ones with the exotic parents where she sat with a huge magnifiying glass in front of her face, hyper at the protein drink bar, etc. Cute and talented.

Yes, shes the grandmother of 2 hero kids!

Princessa 9 years ago from France

Like lovemeanddie I want to be on the list!!!! lol

From your list Shakira comes as my favorite "hips don't lie" not only a beautiful curvy woman but also a great dancer. Natalie Portman comes as my least favorite, I think there is too much bone on show!


Patty Inglish, MS profile image

Patty Inglish, MS 9 years ago from North America Author

It is fun. I first saw Mariska as a amall animated woman on a kid's Saturday morning game show sort of thing years ago. When Law and Order arrived, I recognized her voice and her hair. Much fun.

Nice hub, Patty. Lena Horne, Jayne Mansfield and Claudette Colbert are actresses I''ve enjoyed in movies for years. I don't know much (or anything) about the others. Other names that come to mind are Marilyn Monroe, Betty Grable and Rhonda Fleming. Personally, I always liked Maureen O'Hara.


Patty Inglish, MS profile image

Patty Inglish, MS 9 years ago from North America Author

I agree with Rhonda Flreming and Maureen O'Hara as well. I ned to watch more Audrey Hepburn movies and take abetter look.

Funny you mentioned Nichelle Nichols. Whenever an old Star Trek episoede comes on, I always think "man, Uhura was really hot!". Great picks.


Patty Inglish, MS profile image

Patty Inglish, MS 8 years ago from North America Author

Hey, that's great. Thanks for sharing that with us. I should look half so good when I reach that age. Oy! She is still beautiful.


Angela Harris profile image

Angela Harris 8 years ago from Around the USA

Wow, narrow it down to just 10? So difficult. My son would agree with Natalie Portman and Halle Berry. My daughter would agree with Chakira as a choice. Diverse list, to be sure. It was fun looking over it.


Patty Inglish, MS profile image

Patty Inglish, MS 8 years ago from North America Author

it WAS fun, but purely my own personal opinion. I hope to meet Nichelle Nichols once more. She is so classy!


Abhinaya 8 years ago

I can never forget Uhura.She was my favourite in Star trek series.


Patty Inglish, MS profile image

Patty Inglish, MS 8 years ago from North America Author

The new Star Trek film at the end of 2008 will be interesting, in that younger actors will portray Uhura and the rest at the Academy. I don't know if they can compare with the originals.

Patty Inglish, MS 8 years ago from North America Author

You know this is the beauty of writing, you can put down anything you like and someone, somewhere out there will like and appreciate. Ten most beautiful women in the world eh, huge assumption, many, many to choose from yet we sit and read, and explore and perhaps come out with more.

Wow, I am so surprised not to see mention of the incredible Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly. All stunningly gorgeous and real women. Rachel Welch too.
