HUMAN BEAUTY

Cities with the World’s Most Beautiful People

In the “Traveler’s Digest” web site you can find two posts talking about the places with the most good-looking people in the world, one with regard to men and another about women. Though we can find the name of the author, can’t know how and what criteria he drew on to get these rankings. Personally, I have two comments about.
The “human beauty“, first of all, is a cultural and subjective issue therefore, what is a prototype of the local beauty in an eastern country (for an ethnic group) couldn’t be in a far western country (for a different race), for example. In addition, especially for Western civilization, thanks to high migratory flow, the standard of “beauty”, for both male and female is, so to speak, standardized by now, and common in many countries. It is difficult, if not impossible, to determine the nationality of a gorgeous person simply looking at his/her face. In each country there are, of course, beautiful women and handsome men, and to achieve such a ranking we should determine instead which nation has the highest number of beautiful people or more beautiful ones than other nations. Somewhat difficult, do not you think?
Lastly, the beauty of the Nature and Earth is universal, unique and undisputable while the aesthetical concept is fleeting: during the centuries the concept of “beauty”, alike people taste, has changed, and while up to the Renaissance the woman’s beauty was represented by a “paleolithic Venus”, a woman with prosperous and rounded forms, today instead is more appreciated a sort of “Greek Venus“, but taller and thinner. Once, fat or pot-bellied man, hairy or not, was synonymous with prosperity, opulence and wealth, while today such a man is considered bad-looking, scruffy and sick even. A man to be alluring must be not older than 50, slender and athletic.
Among a flood of people with green or blue eyes, tall, slender, athletic and with a healthy lifestyle, including many who (lucky them) have the opportunity to dress fashionably and enjoy life, all others unluckily are banned and taunted. No wonder, then, if Dr. Pierre Duncan arrives and proposes lower marks to obese students.
It is a fact that today there has emerged a new form of “beauty”, which derives from a mixture of different ethnicities. Not by chance beauties like Naomi Campbell, Anggun, Lucy Liu and Maggie Cheung are considered universally beautiful, and this shows this transition.
I think beauty also should lie in diversity, if we were all equal to each other, with everyone very beautiful or very ugly,  the terms “beauty” or “ugliness” would lose its meaning.
On the contrary, as the concept of “material” beauty establish itself predominantly (overstatement?), about ‘body appearance’ and lifestyle, entirely towards outward and based on pure narcissism, it becomes a damnation and brings to the standardization mentioned ahead.
However, I realize those like Traveler’s Digest ones are frivolous entertaining articles, just wrote to catching people attention, and with this spirit I now will summarize the ranking with the top five.  

Cities With The World’s Most Beautiful Women

1. Kiev, Ukraine

Kiev and Ludmilla Radchenko

Kiev is home to the world’s most beautiful women. The unsuspected talents of skilled conversationalists and the culture of Ukrainian women are the most interesting of the planet, and Kiev, one of the most magnetic.

2. Stockholm, Sweden

Stockholm and Victoria Silvstedt

Well-known from the time of the sexual revolution, Swedish women are not only the most uninhibited and open in Europe, but also the most beautiful. Nordic archetype: fair skin, blue eyes, blond hair, broad shoulders and tallness, is shown at its best in Stockholm.

3. New York City, USA

New York and Scarlett Johansson

New York is a melting pot of so many different cultures and ethnicities and this city has some of the most diverse and beautiful women in the world. Perhaps because it is the center of fashion and cinema (after Hollywood) or because from Tribeca to Meatpacking District the clubs are the “coolest” in the world, but the thing that really makes New York women so special… is their fashion!

4. Buenos Aires, Argentina

Buenos Aires and Belen Rodriguez

All of South America is known as a producer of beautiful women, from Venezuela to Colombia, not to mention Brazil, Buenos Aires, but Buenos Aires is probably the city with the most variety and the highest percentage of beautiful women walking down the street.

5. Varna, Bulgaria

Varna and Nina Dobrev

Bulgaria isn’t a well-known country. Varna is on the country’s gorgeous Black Sea Coast and in the summer the city becomes jam-packed with sunbathing beauties. Similar to their Russian and Ukrainian counterparts, girls here are often tall and light-eyed.

Cities With The World’s Best Looking Men

1. Stockholm, Sweden

Stockholm and Alexander Skarsgård

Swedish men generally are considered aesthetically pleasing due to their fine-boned Nordic attributes and exceptional height advantage. They are great admirers, never irritating, always attentive and patient; once you have captured the heart and imagination of your elegant gent he will be devoted to you for life.

2. New York City, USA

New York and Robert Downey Jr

A lot of incredible looking men from every corner of the globe flock in New York, the most exciting city on the planet, to seek their fame and fortune. Just walking down the street on any given day will bring you eye-to-eye with the man of your dreams – at the very least in the physical sense.

3. Amsterdam, Netherlands

Amsterdam con Wesley Sneijder

Amsterdam is filled with jaw-dropping, good looking guys. Taller than the average Europeans, these lovely lads dress impeccably and like to engage interested ladies in polite, easy-going conversation. Despite their sometimes reserved dispositions, Dutch men have the right mood for romance, especially if in their natural environment.

4. Lisbon, Portugal

Lisbon and Cristiano Ronaldo

Portuguese men tend to be worldly, well-educated and brimming with pride for their small but scenic country. In Lisbon, the often tall, charismatic and athletic Latin seducers might surprise you with their firm grasp of their own culture.

5. Buenos Aires, Argentina

Buenos Aires and Rodrigo Diaz

Men of Buenos Aires could be categorized as sexy and sensuous. These mysterious hombres are sporty and cultivated, complicated and charming, but his company for sure will keep you mesmerized from dusk till dawn.
