We picked this up from one of our favorite ‘it’ girls – fashion stylist/visionary Alexa Winner, whom if you remember we recently did a feature on. Talking of which Ms Winner has gone on and done her own feature on who she considers to be the top 22 most beautiful women in NYC (both on the outside and the inside- now isn’t that refreshing?)
Why 22? Well because Ms Winner is only 22. Which only means next year one more of you lovely ladies is going to make it on Alexa’s list.
What I have done is taken the liberty of looking at Ms Winner’s choices and put out my top ten (and unlike her- ‘I ranked them….with accompanying notes– that’s right kids’) – see my notes next to Alexa’s. Of course I can think of other women I would have personally put out there, (like Ms Devorah Rose– she really is more than meets the eye kids, Dr Shireen Fernandez for her tireless humanitarian work ) Natalie Gal (because she is simply stunning and a joy), Sarah B Hartshorne our fashion correspondent and of course Reka Nyari the photographer who is simply so often hotter than her subjects and of course my favorite current model du jour Julia G whom we featured over the summer courtesy of dilettante at large Cody Ross.
For those women that didn’t make the cut this time, this was Alexa’s project-so that’s that.
So here’s our top ten below- courtesy of Alexa, and to get her top 22 inclusive, be sure to go to the link here to get the whole low down.
Also one last caveat, before you salivate read over this list, please don’t start writing us letters telling me us how betrayed you feel for not making it on the list. The truth is I love you all, and some of you more than you can imagine (well you did help keep the page loads clicking in overtime), sorry Tinsley – I would have put you on the list and even you Ms Hruska. Seriously, but this was Alexa’s project.
Personally, we think Ms Winner should have put herself on the list as well….and by the way Malik So Chic, you bite your tongue- I know deep in your heart you consider yourself a girl but sometimes you just can’t make every list.
The Top 22 Most Beautiful Women in New York: Inside and Out- Alexa Winner.
Nowadays, every publication seems to bombard us with celebrated lists of the “top ten socialites” or the “50 most beautiful people.” These magazines and blogs seem to base these “list-worthy” qualifications simply around one sole quality or attribute, and generally speaking, it’s external. “How many times was she photographed on Patrick McMullan?” “How many feature roles did she star in this year?” “How many actors has she dated?” “What’s her net worth?” Now don’t get me wrong, these lists can all be quite intriguing, but what they gather so easily is collectible external information.
I’ve yet to find a list that not only credits ones outward “image,” but all gives credit to what is equally, if not more important; the internal information. Internal information are the things that make us human, the things that can’t be found on the internet, paid for by an inheritance, or found in the backlogs of Page Six. Thus said, I have compiled a list of the 22 most beautiful women in New York whose outward beauty is just as dazzling as their inward beauty.
The list is in no particular order, and while I’d like to give a witty answer as to why I chose the number 22, the truth is that it’s simply because it’s my age. Thus said, if I could learn one thing from each of these women for every year that I have lived, then that would be the greatest gift I could ask for. What I have however learned, from my experiences with some of these women firsthand and others in passing, is that learning from them has been far more exciting than posing with them.
