Haven't you learned this yet?

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

I love Salma but, Penelope Cruz has always been my favorite! Oh and Morena is a close second!

I love dark-haired, dark-eyed women, but I live in the Southwest (see it a lot). My favorite thing, though, is when women have those physical attributes in combination with paler skin. Makes the hair and eyes really stand out.

It's not "universally beautiful" like blue eyes and blonde hair but of course there are manyyyyyy that do find it appealing. You shouldn't even worry.

I don't have a specific single standard for feminine beauty, except for some of those that anthropologists have discovered really seem to be universal across cultures: 1:0.73 hip-to-waist ratio, fuller lips, larger eyes, prominent cheeks, and a "significant coiffure.

Beyond that, I like ethnicity to bear itself out. Pale Scandanavian women look stunning to me blonde and blue-eyed and Asian woman look stunning to me with long black hair and dark, almond-shaped eyes. Asian women with blue eyes and blonde hair look unattractive to me. Generally, women with lighter hair and eyes than skin color look wrong to me.

I prefer a brown/black hair woman with brown eyes over the latter any day. I find it very attractive. Black hair and blue eyes also do it for me.

What about black, asian and hispanic women?

A girl that fits your description was chosen as "Best Looking" in our senior class. I saw her picture on facebook recently and she still looks good in her 60's.
