I know different people have different opinions on what a beautiful person is physically, less than beautiful, etc. A couple of known women I always thought were strikingly beautiful in their prime were Ashley Judd and Elizabeth Hurley.

Are those women strikingly beautiful? Beautiful but maybe not strikingly so? Pretty but not beautiful? Less than pretty?

I think they're beautiful, but IMO no strikingly so. When I think striking beauty, I usually think of Aishwarya Rai.

They're both beautiful. I wouldn't say strikingly, but that's subjective I guess.

She's definitely a strikingly beautiful lady.

I always thought Catherine Zeta Jones was striking in her younger days. Back when Angelina Jolie had a few more pounds on her, I thought she was smoking. Margot Robbie from the Wolf of Wall Street is amazing too!

Wow. Not only are you objectifying women by only judging them physically but your going one step further with the misogyny and implying that both women--who are still gorgeous--were only "strikingly beautiful in their prime," i.e. when they were young.

These are both recent pics:

If you no longer think these women are beautiful--striking or otherwise--it's only because you've gotten used to them.

Can not tell if you are serious or joking. But it is funny either way.

Default From OP; A couple more examples

Two more women I decided to add are Christy Turlington and Stephanie Seymour.

Are those women strikingly beautiful? Beautiful but maybe not strikingly so? Pretty but not beautiful? Less than pretty?

I vote beautiful but not strikingly beautiful for both.
