Are Mixed Race People the Most Beautiful?

The ultimate American beauty is no longer blond, blue-eyed and busty.

According to an Allure magazine survey, 64 percent of women and men think women of mixed race represent the epitome of beauty, Stylelist reports.

Respondents' picks for "most beautiful" female stars include the biracial Halle Berry, as well as Angelina Jolie, Megan Fox, Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, Julia Roberts, Sandra Bullock and Jessica Alba.

Picks for most beautiful male star include Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Tom Cruise, Denzel Washington, Ryan Reynolds, Matthew McConaughey, Harrison Ford and Hugh Jackman.

Today's beauty icons have darker hair and skin and curvier figures than they did two decades ago, when Christie Brinkley was named "most beautiful" in an identical survey.

In fact, 70 percent of those who wish to change their skin color would like it to be darker; 74 believe that a curvier body type is more appealing now than it has been over the past 10 years; and 69 percent believe there is no such thing as an "all-American look."

What do you think? Does Halle Berry define the word "beautiful" in 2011?

    It truly depends on the individual. In America, who isn't a little mixed? Especially if you go way back in your geneology? :)

    That's a loaded question. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Some mixed people are just plain ugly; two ugly people making a baby. Just because they are mixed doesn't mean they are beautiful.

    I'm answering "No" because this poll just BEGS for a tidal wave of racial resentment in the comments & responses.

    Halle's beautiful but, it's sort of her job (as with most celebrities).

    Every race has insanely beautiful people with no one race exalted over another.

    People have their preferences and that's their right but, c'mon...!!!

    Enough with the race-baiting polls already.


























    You get my point, hopefully.

    That's not Julia on the bottom photo; the top photo is irresistably sexy; she was hotter when she was younger; what was that movie where her husband was trying to kill her, so she moved out of town? She was hot in that movie.
  • keliffa Tuna 2011/03/10 19:36:20

    No, these are 2 different women, Sarah Shahi at the top and Sarah Wayne Callies below her. You must be talking about Sleeping With the Enemy, where she fakes her death before her abusive husband kills her. Good flick!

    Looks like Julia on top, yeah I like that idea; that's the flick, he was one of those tough-guy woman beaters wasn't he?

    Everythig s fl is beautiful! Dolphins are projected to pick Mark Ingram. Thoughts?
  • Tuna keliffa 2011/03/11 12:19:58
    Tuna
    As much as Ronnie Brown is adored, he has never been, never produced a great season; he's average at best but we are a little biased; Ricky is getting too old, Ingram would be a good fit. I think Carson Palmer would be a good fit; not holding out much hope for Henne. I thought John Beck was gonna be the man but he never got the chance except in the Cam Cameron year. Alot of mismanagement in Davie; I'd like to see Kim Bokamper get into Dolphin's management; maybe Marino in the office, too.

    Ricky wants out and I have no doubt he'll fly- I wish him the best. Ross has no idea what the hell he's doing, hopefully Ireland can function all on his own and takes charge. If Parcells wanted him, he must have some talent. SOMEONE needs to take control from Ross who is clearly more interested in becoming an entertainment venue rather than a football team.

    It doesn't make sense to draft Henne, who is a drop-back pocket passer, then draft linemen for a running game. The offensive line was built around Marino just like Colts and Pats protect the QB. Pick up Brandon Marshall and only throw him the ball twice per game; 3rd down and 8 to go, throw a 5 yard pass; like Chris Bosh said about the Heat, can't fix the problem if you don't know what the problem is. Offense co-ordinator Dan Henning is getting like Coach Shula; just too old, the game has passed him by. fix offense co-ordinator dan henning coach shula game passed orange bowl miami dolphins
  • Tuna keliffa 2011/03/11 16:27:50

    We've got such a great, talented, young nucleus to build on; Henne, Koa Misi, Jake Long, Vontae Davis, Chris Clemmons, Randy Starks, Antonio Fasano, et al; if Sparano is not quite ready to BUILD a team he needs to step aside. I don't know why we don't get Jimmy Johnson back. don't say Cowher, I'm not a Cowher fan. Where did the Bucks find that no-name genius they have for a coach?

    Personally I never found them to be the most beautiful.
    People with olive skin tones are the most beautiful in my opinion.

    However, why do we have to have a most beautiful? Can't you let people make up their own minds instead of making a standard?

    We're actually not all God's children. Some of us choose rebellion against God instead of adoption as children. But you're on the right track. God is the source of all good. He is the source of Beauty. We *are* all God's creation and he made us in his image, so....

    Thanks a lot guys.
    I'm now hideous because I'm blond, blue eyed (with eyes that change color), and small busted, fair skinned (I'm literally the color of light cream cardstock on my legs), with an 'I' type body. As if I needed any more to worry about.

    So I should get cancer causing sun tans.
    I should get laser eye treatment to get my eyes brown.
    I should get my hair dyed.
    I should give up my whole cultural heritage.
    I should get breast implants.
    All this, just to get to this idea of "beautiful".

    And this thing is racist.
    Technically I'm "mixed race" because I'm let's see:
    German
    Swedish
    Scottish
    English
    Irish
    Dutch
    And a whole bunch more mixed in there, but it's all European.

    And...black/white are not 2 different races, dear god people! They're human! One species, one race. A little melanin difference does not, and will not, change that.

    And those 70% of people that think that 'biracial' people are the most beautiful are racist for 2 reasons.
    1. Biracial. They're stereotyping biracial people into being gorgeous and they're stereotyping people like me, into being hideous creatures.
    So they're being racist against a 13 year old girl. I.e. Me. Asshats.
    2. Because the idea that we're not a human race, but white, black (which aren't even ethnic backgrounds, they're descriptions of skin colors), Mexican, Arabian means that they don't view us as all one race. The human one.
    In other words? The attitude that "people with white skin are a different race from people with brown" is what helped along slavery, the civil war and the Rodney King riots (at least part of the riots anyway).
    And those 70% of people? They're going to think that they're not racist at all.

    Lolaita you are very smart. I try to tell people this all the time. We are one race(the human race) and many ethnicities. White and Black is not an ethnicity, but a play on skin color. People need to start understanding that. Of coarse your not ugly and neither am I. They are just trouble makers trying to make people argue about beauty. Every ethnicity has features that are stunning and I am glad we are different in that way. Variety is wonderful, and I wouldn't want to live in a world with one ethnicity and culture. :)
