It is not good enough to be beautiful. True beauty does something to change the world for the better.

Nichelle Nichols

Singer, Dancer, Actress and Advocate

Nichelle Nichols is an honorary member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority and stars in a new online edition of Star Trek stories called "Renegades."

She is responsible for dozens of astronauts from diverse backgrounds going to work for NASA from 1969 through 2017 through her work as a recruiter and good will ambassador for our national space agency.

A Young International Star

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 and an admiral in the online film Star Trek: Of Gods and Men and the internet series Renegades with Walter Koenig and other original characters.

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.

Ms. Portman was recognized with the 2018 Genesis Prize in Israel for her commitment to important social causes. She is an advocate for women and children ion war-torn areas.

Halle Berry

Lovely as herself, as Cat Woman, 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.

Halle Berry was named Number One on People Magazine's "50 Most Beautiful People in the World" ranking in 2003. She had placed int he top 10 seven different times.

Lena Horne

Miss 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.

Ms. Horne has a place on the International Civil Rights Walk of Fame and several recognitions and awards as an actress, singer, and early civil rights advocate.

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 in productions that include Into the Woods.

Honored with dozens of acting and philanthropic awards, Ms. Rashad was named the first Denzel Washington Chair professor in Theatre at Fordham University in 2011.

Mariska Hargitay

Exotic looking even in the long running TV series Law and Order:Special Victims Unit, Mariska is a lasting beauty.

Her character in SVU became the head of the division in the series, acting as a role model of young women in the workforce and as an advocate for victims of sexual assault and violence, no matter their age, gender, or any other demographic. This advocacy has become a lifetime commitment.

Mariska is the daughter of another beauty, actress Jayne Mansfield, who was also a genius who played classical violin for audiences on such shows as the Jack Parr Show. She acted because she loved the work. Body builder Mickey Hargitay was Jayne's husband and Mariska's father..

Ms. Hargitay speaks five languages: English, French, Hungarian, Italian and Spanish.

Jayne Mansfield

A gorgeous blonde, 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. She is remembered for allowing audiences to know about her genius and abilities outside of acting. Real beauty does not hide one's intelligence.

Ms. Mansfield became the first major American actress to perform nude in starring role in a Hollywood film in "Promises! Promises!" .

Uma Pemmaraju

Strikingly beautiful on television newscasts like "America's News Headquarters with Uma Pemmaraju" for the Fox News enterprise, this reporter is straightforward and intelligent as well as attractive.

Uma has covered news for Fox since 1996 and has reported on the Boston Marathon Bombings, several presidential elections, and hard-to-access celebrities like Buzz Aldrin and his STEAM educational advocacy.

Uma Peramanju is the first Indian-American anchor to broadcast regularly on an American national television network.

Shakira

Shakira is not only attractive, but engaging and fun. She does not have truckloads of "drama" in her life as do many other young actresses and performers. We never hear about drug abuse and such with this young woman.

Shakira founded the Pies Descalzos Foundation, a charity in her home country that set up special schools and food for poor children all around Colombia.


Shakira is the highest-selling Colombian artist of all time, according to Sony, with at least 60 million albums sold.

Claudette Colbert

Miss Claudette Colbert was a famous film star of the 1930s and 1940s who continued to act and model well into her 70s. Her physical appearance hardly changed a bit and she was a lasting beauty.

Claudette filmed two of the many "nude-except-for-a-mink-coat" photo layouts done by famous women for BlackGlamma Mink, including one in her 20s and a new pose about 50 years later in her 70s. I can scarcely 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 below is a more modern issue of the character, which is in the public domain and gives rise to fanzines from time to time.

      I've just been viewing morning television programs on B.B.C. as well as I.T.V. Angela Rippon an English west country girl who was brought back from retirement (i won't reveal a Lady's age) was always beguiling and now has even more mystique to add to her unique beauty. The B.B.C.'s sports presenter Sally Nugent who has her own appreciation society also posseses a strong character whose beauty is rated highly.

      Helena Bonham-Carter is how I find it in cast listings when I do advance-screening film reviews; but, thanks to everyone for all the nominations of beautiful people!

      I personally consider Jewish women to be absolutely beautiful in all aspects.

      Gal Gadot for example 'fits the bill' and 'delivers the goods' to perfection.

      A special mention here on women of Eurasian origin. A very subtle merging of the confident poise of Western beauty combined with the exotic mystique of the oriental maiden.

      I'd rate columnist and television presenter Yasmin Alabhai - Brown as quite high in the beauty stakes. With the winning combination of a handsome countenance, eloquent speech and an exotic mystique. Ms Alabhai - Brown is also an astute business woman and has had published a series of cookery books on mouth watering delights.

      I am inclined to admire Emma Watson for her calm quiet beauty. There is quite a few articles on the Hub pages pertaining to Emma Watson but i shall lok at her official website to see how popular in fact she is.

      Hello everyone! I really enjoy all the new comments on this thread and think I really SHOULD do a 21st century list. Classic beauty of the last century is still classic beauty, but new classic are before our very eyes today. It's wonderful!

    • limpet profile image

      Being well and truely into the 21st century it may be prudent to update the list of Top 10 most beautiful Women in the world. I nominate Nancy Dell' Ollio, a STRIKINGLY beautiful Lady. Ms Dell' Ollio is New York City born and a British barrister as well as a London socialite. Ms Dell' Ollio simply oozes sensuality and not just a pretty face she is an astute business woman emerging with a new found power and wealth.

      With regards to beautiful women i am rather fond of Bjork as she is such an enigma. Bjork truely has a style to her advantage. Another fascinating lady is Zoella a young west country girl with entreprenuerial skills and spritely 'good looks'.

      Naga Munchetti - ravishing.

      Deepika Padukone - exotic.

      Gal Gadot - wonderous woman.

      Honor Blackman - glamorous.

      Helena Bonham-Carter - alluring.

      Sophia Loren - classic.

      Further to previous comment on my favourites i'd like to give the 'beauty rating' on each.

      Dita von Teese - beguiling.

      Zoella - spritely.

      Bjork - mystifying.

      Angela Rippon - charismatic (top billing)

      To keep the thread of the topic current.

      Queen of Burlesque, Dita von Teese.

      Entreprenurial teen, Zoella.

      Icelandic ice maiden, Bjork.

      B.B.C. presenters, Angela Rippon and Naga Munchetti.

      Bollywood starlet Deepika Padukone.

      Wonder Woman, Gal Gadot.

      Glamorous English actress Honor Blackman.

      Ditto, Helena Bonham-Carter.

      Timeless beauty, Sophia Loren.

      It would be difficult to name the top 10 most beautiful women in the world. I rate Eurasians as particularly alluring in the beauty stakes, combining the gracious demure of the Oriental and the poise and confident of western women. Regarding 'beauty' as i was growing up i often had thoughts about Sophia Loren as a sex symbol, but now that placement goes to Dita Von Tease.

      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.

      Great list - I agree about Audrey Hepburn though - she would always be on my top ten list.

      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.

      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!

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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" ;-)

      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!!

      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. ;)
