And one of the great glamour-women of NYCB and ABT, Nanette Glushak, still glamourous as the Director of the Ballet Capitole of Toulouse.

Tamara Toumanova---she was 'drop dead' gorgeous on the stage.

Chan Han Goh is also very beautiful. She not only is principal dancer for the National Ballet of Canada, but has danced in Suzanne Farrell Ballet and has guest starred around the world.
This month she danced Sugar Plum Fairy with the California Riverside Ballet to Nikolaj Hübbe's Cavalier in Nutcracker.

Uh oh! I just saw that Chan was already on somebody's list. Sorry for the duplication!

She's worth mentioning twice. :unsure:

Suzanne Farrell. I think she's one of the most beautiful people in general, not just in the ballet world.

Violet, you are absolutely correct. And SF's beauty is not only outward -- it comes from within.

If I'm not mistaken, there was only one mention of the lovely Nina Ananiashvili, and I'll second it-- Georgian fire and divine proportions to boot.

Larissa Lezhina was also mentioned only once, despite managing to look adorably cute and radiantly beautiful at the same time.

My other vote goes to the beautiful Carla Fracci.

You're probably all bored of hearing it, but I'll say it again - Carla Fracci!

Some seem to interpret this question as to who dances the most beautifully. On straight looks, mine are:

A. Asylmuratova
Christine Dunham
Isabel Guerin
Sylvie Guillem
Susan Jaffe
Julie Kent
Moira Shearer
Silja Schandorff
Tamara Toumanova

As beautiful as Fonteyn and Farrell were as dancers, they just cannot be on this list.

Oh, I don't know, paolo. I'd keep Fonteyn on a list, but I probably wouldn't include some of the ladies you named. Yours all have attractive faces, but I don't feel all of them merit the rarified status of "most beautiful." Fonteyn, to my mind does.

I agree with Carbo, and I would keep Farrell as most beautiful, too, although I didn't list her previously because I was sure others would. I remember reading on here someone saying whether or not he/she would find Farrell attractive if she were not a dancer- in my mind, she still would be. She isn't beautiful in a glamorous way, but rather has a natural prettiness, kind of Uma Thurman-esque. Anywho, there's the old cliche: beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Lezhnina :P
Sizova (Still gorgeous)
Karsavina
Fracci
Ferri

Whomever dances the third shade variation on The Kirov in London tape with Chenchikova. Wonder where she is now.

re: The young Farrell was considered very beautiful (in the general sense of the word).
