Here are the most beautiful women in the world according to Kenya. Well, at least the English-speaking, online-content-creating part of it as filtered by Google Images:
1. Lupita Nyong’o (1983- ), a Mexican-Kenyan actress, best known for playing Patsey in “12 Years a Slave” (2013), for which she won an Oscar. People magazine in the US named her the most beautiful woman in the world in 2014. Four of its top ten appear on this list: all three of its Black women and one of its White women.
2. Aishwarya Rai (1973- ) is a Bollywood actress and winner of Miss World in 1994. In 2008 she was the most beautiful woman in the world according to Google Images.
3. Olympia Owira is a Kenyan actress and model.
4. Kerry Washington (1977- ), an American actress, is best known for playing Olivia Pope on “Scandal” (2012- ). In 2014, People magazine named her the tenth most beautiful woman in the world.
5 Elizabeth Faith Sakwe is the adopted daughter of Nigeria’s former president, Goodluck Jonathan.
6. Vera Sidika (1989- ), a Kenyan model, is one of Kenya’s curviest women and one of Nairobi’s most beautiful – at least according to the websites that appeared in this search. She has bleached her skin and enlarged her breasts. I have seen pictures of her on Tumblr, better than the one above.
7. Juliana Kanyomozi (1982- ) is a Ugandan singer.
8. Gabrielle Union (1972- ), an American actress, is probably still best known for starring in the cheerleader film, “Bring It On” (2000). She tried out for the part of Olivia Pope but lost out to Kerry Washington. She also loses out to her on this list. People magazine, though, considers her more beautiful, putting her at number seven in 2014.
9. Jenna Dewan-Tatum (1980- ) is an American dancer and actress. In 2014 People magazine named her the third most beautiful woman in the world. Never heard of her.
10. Tiguida Sissoko is a Malian model who lives in Paris. I have seen pictures of her on Tumblr, better than the one above.
Tiwa Savage (1980- ), a Nigerian singer, would have beat out Tiguida Sissoko but she was in a group photo of beautiful Lagos women, so I could not count her individually. What a beauty!
How I made the list: I searched for the most beautiful women in the world using Google Images but limited the search to just those websites that end in “.ke”, the top-level Internet domain for Kenya (like what “.uk” is for Britain). I took the top ten women who appeared alone in a picture and who could be identified. That means group photos and stock photos were not counted.
Why Kenya? I looked at the top ten of 28 different countries (that have at least a million people who know English) and liked Kenya’s the best.
You might think that countries that are mostly Black would have top tens that are also mostly Black. That is not always true. Here are the top four or five for different African countries. Click to enlarge:
