I went in search of 8 of the world's most attractive women. Here's where I do one man's meat is another's poison. I'm not including any of my friends here because friends of laspapi are not eligible for this grading. I'm going into the world of celebrities and making choices. I was told by a female my list wasn't complete without Angelina Jolie; well, I don't think so. She's not on this list. Neither is Halle Berry, now I think of it. It'd be interesting to know what female readers of this post think.
They are listed in no particular order.


Vanessa Williams (Actor, Former Miss World, Singer)

Maria Sharapova (Lawn Tennis Professional)

Shakira (Singer)

Vivica A. Fox (Actor- Kill Bill, Booty Call)

Peju Alatishe (Author: Crossroads-"Oritameta", Architect)

Gabrielle Union (Actor- The Honeymooners)

Nicole Kidman (Actor- Moulin Rouge, The Others)

Sophie Okonedo (Actor- Hotel Rwanda)

laspapi said...

Sorry about that, V. It's just that she fills my world ;-D

Who is Peju Alatishe?

I agree with Shakira and Gabrielle, hot ladies.

laspapi said...

Omosewa, I'm going to post a picture of Peju Alatishe shortly.

damsel said...

Laspaps, I dey only feel Gabrielle Union for your list oh... How about Lauryn Hill????

laspapi said...

Ah, damsel,a few years ago, she would have topped such a list of mine. I don't know what happened. I think she stopped singing or something. If there was space for another 2, she'd join the list.

Noni Moss said...

Vivica Fox is on your list - after her "half-assed" (pun intended) atte,pt at shaking it for 50 cents at some award show?

Shakira?
Maria Sharapova?

Vanessa Williams - yeah for a woman almost in her 50s.

:-) dont mind me - i'm just hating. To each their own.

laspapi said...

noni,
that was vitriolic.

Still, as I wrote, I knew one thing in the back of my mind, women don't often get what men see.

I didn't call them the most beautiful in the world, they're just very attractive women.

How u dey?

Nilla said...

Vanessa Williams, Shakira......I agree with you.

Overwhelmed Naija Babe said...

and he sha missed me oh!!!(sobs!!!)..but yes gabrielle union is gorgeous,vanessa williams.. in fact all the women on your list are beautiful.. you missed jennifer lopez tho!!!

laspapi said...

yeah, ms zee, it's something about her facial expressions when she plays.

@ nilla- I have to meet vanessa williams before I die. I like the way she overcame adversity (losing her Ms America crown) to become big. And those songs..."Save the best for last" and the "pocahontas" one? Wow.

you know you'd top my list any day, Storm, an unfair advantage.

ps. J Lo doesn't do it for me.

damsel said...

Laspaps (I hope you don't mind me calling you that???), she is alive and well and recently perfomed 18 months ago and was still as beautiful as ever!

laspapi said...

you can call me anything, damsel
;-D
I assume you're talking about lauryn hill. I don't doubt her talents and her "attractiveness", she's just slipped from the forefront of my consciousness.

Mona said...

laspapi said...

see you, mona...

You shoulda called me in Lagos when u came home.
