The 10 Most Beautiful Women In The UK
Any two members of the human race can agree on one thing: Women are beautiful. It is so difficult to classify what constitutes beauty in an objective manner however. What makes this person beautiful and the other not? Often the choice lies with the beholder. It is impossible to categorise something as universal and intangible as beauty given that every region in the world has its own criteria. That said there are some women who cut across borders and transcend boundaries. No matter where they go, in whatever region of the world, they turn heads and are constantly the center of attention. The UK has a few of such women of ethereal and timeless beauty and we have included those we consider the 10 most gorgeous in our list of the UK’s most beautiful women.
Michelle Keegan is the darling of the UK. Not only has she garnered success as an actress and fashion model, but she is also quite the television personality nowadays. We were first introduced to her sizzling looks when she lit our screens with her critically acclaimed performances for Coronation Street beginning in 2008 that saw her walk away with the British Soap Award for the Best Newcomer 2008. Besides that she also snapped up the British Soap Award for Sexiest Female for the years 2008 through 2013 and has been part of several other works for televisions such as Red Dwarf, The Jeremy Kyle Show, as well as movies like Coronation Street: Out of Africa.
Drum Roll please! Everyone knows Cheryl Cole. The multi-talented recording artist, dancer, and television celebrity is undeniably one of the UK’s brightest stars. Let’s face it; nobody can blame us for drooling over the belle from Tyne and Wear. We first caught of a glimpse of Cheryl back in 2002 when she successfully made it through ITV’s Popstars: The Rivals to become a member of the resultant singing girl group: Girls Aloud. That was the iconic singer’s television debut, but since then she has churned out six platinum albums with the group along with 20 hit songs, and has still been able to find the time to launch a considerable successful solo musical and television career.
Okay so we noticed her in the movie, Bend it Like Beckham. But Keira Knightley really caught the attention of the world with her starring performance in the international box office hit, The Pirates of the Caribbean. With a host of starring roles and iconic performances over the years in other more serious movies like The Duchess, Pride and Prejudice, The Dangerous Method and Anna Katerina, the UK has a lot of reasons to be proud of this trailblazer from Teddingtonn. That notwithstanding, we hail her plaudits here because ever since her debut in the limelight, she has consistently been hailed, and quite rightly so, as one of the most beautiful dames in the whole wide world-possibly in the whole galaxy!
So what do Victoria’s Secret and Burberry Body Fragrance have in common? The answer is the delectable Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. The perennial beauty from Plymouth is best known for her work with lingerie from Victoria’s Secret during Victoria’s Secret Fashion Shows as well as working with Burberry fragrance. However, she has a budding acting career as well, having starred in movies such as Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon, and Mad Max: Fury Road. There are some faces that are so perfectly sculpted it seems impossible that they could ever be improved upon. Rosie is definitely one of the most delightful and sought after roses in the UK’s garden of beauty!
Okay, so she’s half American-but we know where her looks-and possibly all her talent is from. Emily Blunt is a gem among gems, and one of the most beautiful women in the UK. The rousing beauty from Roehampton actually started out with stage acting back in a 2001 London Production of the play, The Royal Family. Two years later she made her screen debut in the movie, Boudica (Warrior Queeen) and by 2004 she had snapped up the Evening Standard British Film Award for Most Promising Newcomer. This is all backstory though: Most of us could not get our eyes off her when she set our screens on fire with her role as a beleaguered assistant in the Hollywood movie, The Devil Wears Prada. The rest they say is history. Young, Talented, and with bushels of looks to spare, Emily Blunt is one of the many gifts the UK has been able to offer to the world.
Kate Beckinsale is one of the most beautiful women in the world-and she’s from the UK so she makes our list. Born in Chiswick, this talented beauty starred in her first movie role in Much Ado About Nothing while still a student at Oxford. Yes, you read that right-she’s endowed with brains to go with the looks. Speaking of looks, this beauty who is already in her forties still turns heads everywhere she goes, adding substance to the argument that age is indeed nothing more than a number-at least for some. With a host of movie credits to her name since the beginning of her considerable movie career, it is not hard to see why she is one of the UK’s top 10 sweethearts.
It takes guts, resolve, and bucketloads of sublime looks to win Miss England. Yet that is exactly what this mouth-watering beauty from Melton Mowbray set out to do and accomplished in 2008. If you believe in the saying that, “The apple never falls far from the tree,” then this accomplishment in 2008 would not surprise anyone-Laura comes from a long line of prizewinning belles. Her maternal grandmother, Irene, won Miss Army Pin-Up and Miss Lovely Legs in the 1940s. Her mother, Dena, would not be outdone, and won 15 titles in her 20s, including Miss East Anglia. She was also a finalist for Miss United kingdom. Clearly the delectable Ms Coleman did not fall far from the tree.
Lily Donaldson is a London born fashion model whose looks got her noticed back in 2003 at the tender age of 16. Select Model Management quickly realised the jewel they had unearthed and wasted no time at all-by the 2004 Fall/Winter season she was making her modelling debut, working for headliners such as Chanel, Moschino, Louis Vuitton, Missoni, and also Jill Sander. Numerous national and international cover shoots have followed since, as well as numerous fashion campaigns for fashion power houses such as Versace, Gucci, Burberry, Fendi, Calvin Klein, Dior, Dolce & Gabana, and Balenciaga just to name a few. And it is not only we in the UK who think highly of this beauty from Britain-in 2009, Vogue Paris declared Lily one of the top 30 models of the 2000s.
A glamour model with looks to stop traffic, Luck Mecklenburgh is a sight to behold-literally, thousands tune into the show, The Only Way is Essex, just to get a glimpse of her sultry good looks. Reality TV never looked better! And beauty is definitely not all she has in her repertoire. The London born Lucy is also an entrepreneur, with business ventures of her own.
There are some people-not many mind you-who simply suck out the air from a room when they walk in. They possess something intangible-some inane quality, almost a right to be the center of attention. Catherine Zeta-Jones is definitely in that small list. Catherine had always wanted to act, and from a young age aspired to theatre. Her talents would lead her far higher than any child could dream however, leading to many starring roles in movies like The Mask of Zorro, and Traffic as well as many awards including an Academy Award, a British Academy Award, and a Tony. In 2010, this buxom beauty was appointed a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) for her achievements in film and her humanitarian endeavours, a testimony to the beautiful heart that resides underneath. A true classic beauty by all accounts, a Welsh wonder with an acting career not to be ignored, Catherine Zeta-Jones may be last on our least, but she is in no way the least.
