Most Beautiful Australian Women - Delta Goodrem & Sarah Murdoch are from Australia
Wide variety of choice!
I get asked frequently who I think are Australia's most beautiful and fashionable women.
I have at last decided to succumb to the pressure of listing who I feel are Australia's most beautiful women. Of course I realize the fashion and style changes with time and cultures.
I've admired female beauty all of my life and I don't really think I have seen a women yet that has not some beauty to project be it external or radiating from within. I don't care whether they are clothed or wearing a bikini swimsuit.
Update: 04-08-2011 - Megan Gale -
It has just been announced that one of my most beautiful Australian women - Megan Gale - has been named the new 'face of L'Oreal Paris'
Not bad for an Aussie girl?
Update:12-05-2011 Delta Goodrem
I see that Delta has wowed the American viewing audience of Dancing With the Stars when she performed live as a last minute replacement. She also sang a duet with Michael Bolton.
My list is not definitive and I have no idea how many women will be on the list .
My list will include women that have faded from public memory and indeed may not have been famous because of their beauty.
Lucky to be Australian
Being an Australian I must be one of the luckiest guys to draw breath. I say this because without a shadow of doubt I could walk through the streets of Melbourne, not to mention Sydney or the lovely beaches we have here , and pick out women that would match the women on my list for beauty.
For my own safety I will not rate my ladies from 1-7. I have listed them purely randomly.
However I will start my list with a woman who I have admired not only for her beauty but for the manner in which she has conducted herself as she has grown to being the woman she has become today! That woman is now known as Sarah Murdoch.
