    Kiira belongs in Hollywood. She totally has that classic blonde bombshell look.

The article suggested that in Japan Mao is regarded as more beautiful than Miki. I have no idea if this is true, though.

    My pick would be Maria Sergejeva...

    Then Nathalie Pechalat and I think Lepisto's looks better than Korpii.

    Mai Asada is the most beautiful skater (older sister of Mao) if she is still skating.

    Tanith BElbin, and Mao Asada

    Well, from what I know, Japanese love everything that is cute, and as another poster pointed out, Mao and her sister Mai has this classical Japanese Hina Doll look (in fact, there's even a hinadoll made for Mao!) So it's very possible that Mao is regarded as prettier there.

    This kind of thing is clearly subjective. How often do you see couples walking on the street that seem so mismatch to you? Sometimes, you see a really fat and out of shape woman with a handsome good looking guy, though rare, but very often, it's the other way around, an ugly, fat and not good looking man with a thin and pretty girlfriend. Beauty is in the eye of beholder.

    ... to state the very obvious. Clearly, the thread is about who we individually think is the most attractive (a celebration of beauty, if you will).

    Now get off your high-horse and dish out on who you think is gorgeous!

    I already did: http://www.goldenskate.com/forum/sho...l=1#post496446

    The other girls look like pretty female skaters, she looks like a gorgeous actress who happened to know how to skate, not a skater.

    It struck me the other day how much Mao looks like the women in classic Japanese woodblock prints.

    This is a more modern version:

    Miki's face is quite different. I never thought of it as more Western but it also doesn't remind me of Japanese art. They're both exquisite. Mai too, of course!

    Mao is definitely classic Japanese idea of beauty.

    an ugly, fat and not good looking man with a thin and pretty girlfriend. Beauty is in the eye of beholder.
    Beauty is sometime in the eye of how big the bank account is...

    Yah, the Hina Doll of Mao; they made it because Mao is popular among parents.

    Even the original Hina Doll looks the same. Scroll down to see the lady. She looks exactly Mao:
