I agree she is not the tipical sex symbol but she does have a unique look. and her face from her early days is perfection comparing her with mae west and bo derek

I don't have words to explain how perfect she is .The body of an hourglass and with that face maybe I schould pray on her .

Average listal rating (1992 ratings) 7.4  IMDB Rating
35. Angelina Jolie

she might have great face proportions but I really don't like her as a person. A two faced bitch that is what she is yesterday she was doing drugs and today she is acting mother Teresa. and I hate how when she does events she acts like she is on top of everyone , and her acting is nothing special .

Average listal rating (442 ratings) 7.9  IMDB Rating
36. Kelly Brook

best body a true hourglass

Average listal rating (1138 ratings) 6.6  IMDB Rating

I have nothing against plastic surgery, to some it has actualy boosted their confidence on an other level. Yeah I get that she is not the best actress but I would pick her anytime over angelina !

Average listal rating (136 ratings) 7.4  IMDB Rating
38. Natasha Poly

many don't know her but in the high fashion she is a sex bomb and reading comments that Anja Rubick is better than her really made me laugh .

Great face but somehow she is forgettable sorta like jessica alba .

Don't like the situation she has with the lips and those lines across it but she's pretty . and her legs are perfection

GREAT LIST!

For the '90s, how about Demi Moore and Claudia Schiffer?

For 2000s, I think you should add Beyonce. I'm not her fan but have to admit her sex appeal reaches out to men (and women) of various race and ethnicity, plus she has a lot of fan base among all current female singers.

Btw can Elizabeth Taylor be considered a sex symbol? I know that she's not a bombshell in the mold of Marilyn Monroe, Rita Hayworth or Jayne Mansfield. I guess when talking about her, they tend to see her rather as a beauty goddess, not a sex goddess.

Another suggestion, Carole Lombard?

Great list!!
you should at some more like russ meyer girls!!!!

Madonna does not belong on this list. she is too trashy and too much of a copy of all the others. She was not a sex symbol in the 90s as she looked too old by then. She was in the 80s only.

Nice list. I think Monica Bellucci is stunning but I've never heard of her being a big sex symbol. You should include Jessica Rabbit for the 80s. I know she's fiction but still! Weren't Halle Berry, Cameron Diaz and Michelle Pfiefer also big sex symbols in the 90s?

So glad to see Dorothy Dandridge on here. She's my favourite beauty!
Posted: 2 years, 8 months ago at Feb 3 22:32
Great choices. The amount of stir Pamela Anderson caused during the 90s shouldn't be forgotten either.
Posted: 2 years, 8 months ago at Feb 6 16:55
maybe mae west
Posted: 1 year, 7 months ago at Mar 14 13:08
Great list. I'm sure Pamela Anderson would be in the 1990s sex symbol. She was hot back then.
Posted: 1 year, 6 months ago at Apr 5 9:29
what about Lana Del Rey?

Someone tell me how to paste a link and not just a line of text.

I remember Pamela Anderson being everywhere in the 1990s, and I was just a kid. Anyway, great list.

Hey just wanted to stop really quickly & say fuck you for your comment about Queen Harlow! She was an effortless beauty queen, sex symbol, timeless ICON. You tried it, but Queen remains unbothered and remaining more iconic than the poor other girls. :)
