Ludmila Semenyaka deserves a mention, and she wasn't brunette.

Two Kirov ballerinas Inna Zubkovskaya and Tatiana Legat were ravishingly beautiful.
However, Karsavina reigns unsurpassed.

Everyone seemed to enjoy the Most Handsome Male Dancers discussion, so I thought I'd start a similar search for the most beautiful female dancers.

I've decided upon Julie Kent, Stella Abrera, Janie Taylor, and Irina Dvorovenko. (In no particular order)

Carla Fracci. Remember her? Sigh.

Don't worry, there are Fracci fans on the board. Unfortunately, I never saw her (dancing or otherwise), so I can't speak to her beauty.

I completely agree about Carla Fracci. I cannot believe I forgot to include her. In my opinion, she is by far the most gorgeous ballerina ever.

I have a book called "The making of a dance: Medea" with her, Baryshnikov, and the choreographer, John Butler. In the book, she is much more mature than in the other books and videos I have seen of her, and I think it makes her all the more beautiful.

I also emphasize Stella Abrera. She was on the cover of Dance Magazine earlier this year and, as it says in the magazine, "Her glamour and sex appeal come from another era."
