According to a list published in 2013 by TVandFilmReview.com, Yvonne Strahovski, Hayden Panettiere and Emilia Clarke are the three most beautiful television actresses, starring in Dexter, Nashville and Game of Thrones respectively. This list contains a ranking of 50 different actresses, with individual paragraphs explaining the reasoning behind each choice.
Some actresses show up on lists on many different websites. Stars such as Zooey Deschanel and Tina Fey show up on multiple lists for their unique traits and personalities. Some of these lists weigh the charming or elegant personalities of the women, while others are strictly based on physical attributes. The article posted by HelloGiggles.com notes that Maxim magazine named Elisha Cuthbert as "most beautiful woman."
Because beauty is subjective, different people find different traits to be beautiful. As a result of this, the amount of variation in rankings such as "The Most Beautiful Women" lists tends to be extensive from one source to another, and the same source lists different rankings from one year to another.
For instance, IMDB.com has a list published in 2011 that ranks a woman by the name of Lea Michele as the most beautiful. Sometimes, lists cover only well-known pop culture icons, while lists such as this take lesser known stars into account.
