If one looks at lists of Miss Universe and Miss World winners, it appears that Indian women are considered to be the most "beautiful" in Asia with 2 "Miss Universe" winners and 5 "Miss World" winners.

However, if one looks at a list of Miss Asia Pacific International winners, it appears that the Philippines might have the most "beautiful" women in Asia with 5 "Miss Asia Pacific International" winners.

So far, the results of the "poll" of this thread (at the time of this post) have Japanese women in the lead with 35 votes, followed by Korean women with 33 votes, and Pilipino women with 27 votes.

Of course, some Asian "beauties" can look quite different sans makeup...

I don't think this thread is silly. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and it's subjective which is pretty much what this thread is about. Personally, I like women that look healthy - curvy regardless of race. What I can't stand is women that would surgically change their look. For example, east Asian women that would changed the shape of their eyes. Black women that would wear blond wigs. White women that would tan to look darker and add breast/butt implants. I like it when a woman eats burgers with fries as opposed to just 'air' (translation : nothing).

for me

1.)Korean- all of them are perfect...no faults at all
2.)Filipina - since I am biased...they arent number one because of the few mestiza and negrito admixed ones in the country who bring the image down....morenas and chinitas in the country can be damn pretty
3.)its all a toss up from here on out
