I know Merle Oberon. That's an interesting connection to make. She was in one of my favorite movies, The Scarlet Pimpernel. I like your thought about Meryl being an exotic ballerina. Now that you mention it, she reminds me quite a bit of Cynthia Gregory, a major ballerina from the seventies.
I definitely find Katia Gordeeva beautiful.
And Tanith Belbin is beautiful.
Those two, for me, embody ideal feminine beauty, but I also find Mao Asada to be incomparably beautiful in a universal, transcendental kind of way.
Many fans have remarked upon her remarkable facial similarity to Bodhisattva statues:
I also find that she looks very similar to Mona Lisa:

I agree about Mao. I think this is partly due to her expressiveness. She has such a mobile face. Very interesting about the Bodhisattva statues.
I wasn't sure before but after watching Worlds I must say Monika Simancikova has become very beautiful, she has strong features but she's finally grown into them and has a striking look to her that's very alluring.
Kaetlyn Osmond is also really pretty I think (I know some people aren't fans of her body type, but I think the costumes are just not the best fit, she looks stunning in practice outfits and fit, trim, muscular...not heavy at all), her eyes especially are very sparkly and draw you in.
