There are so many different forms of beauty in this great, big world of ours. Regardless of your tastes, there's sure to be a city out there that caters to the type of beauty and style that you seek. But can we really rank the cities with greatest volume of beautiful women? Many attempts have been made to do so, and we've collated all those rankings to bring you the definitive list. Of course, beauty's in the eye of the beholder - but most beholders seem to be in agreement that the following ten cities boast the most beautiful women.
There have been numerous attempts to rank cities with beautiful women out there already – most based upon individual tastes and preferences. We looked at the number of times each city or country appeared on various lists to determine whether or not they'd make the ultimate top ten. Then, we took the investigation a step further by looking at the pageant industry. Sure, beauty pageants aren't something most of us think about on a daily basis, but there are several major pageants that are considered internationally reputable. By looking at the countries with the most pageant titles, we were able to nail down a few rankings.
We also looked at the country's overall reputation, the value they place on conventional beauty standards, and the lengths women go to meet them. Some countries place huge value on physical fitness, for instance, and they have a large population of women who are very fit. In others, plastic surgery is the norm, and women undergo numerous procedures to obtain that physically 'perfect' ideal of beauty. All of these factors, and more, have gone into our rankings. Still, it's worth keeping in mind that where one person sees beauty, someone else will not. But whether you like blondes or brunettes, snow white girls or girls with dark, silky skin, it's all here. These are the ten cities with the most beautiful women in the world.
10 Montreal, Canada
One city that kept popping up on every ranking for beautiful women was the French Canadian city of Montreal. This city is a sexy combination of European charm and North American sass. Montreal has a very lively nightlife, and the beauty of its women rivals that of the city itself. The city is known to have a fantastic fashion scene, and with fashion comes, you guessed it, models. Not only are the women beautiful, many of them also speak French which is a sexy bonus.
9 Luanda, Angola
