Seattle has to be one of the cities with the ugliest people. Most of the people in Seattle aren't locals either. Its not a shock to see that places with warmer climates get prettier folk.

It's amusing that so many people are fiercely attacking the integrity of this article, as it is clearly a lighthearted overview portraying the results of a POLL taken by Travel & Leisure from its readers. (NOT a scholarly journal...take it easy, folks..) A little mindless fluff doesn't hurt anybody every now and then. Yes, beauty is a matter of perception, and also population size  would need to be implemented in  any effort to really compute "most attractive". 

My superficial input is as follows for the cities I have spent considerable time in, and applies more to the female population: L.A:  Most Artificially Beautiful Denver: Most Naturally Beautiful (and Athletic) New York: Most Uniquely Beautiful (think...supermodels) Miami: Most exotic beauties Charleston, SC: Highest ratio of very attractive, put together and well-kept  for population size

And most attractive men? Denver.

Beauty is on the inside anything after is an added bonus.  Some of the cities noted are probably due to having cosmetic surgeons.  For beauty these days come after a lot of surgery.  Nothing natural about them.

    10 of the sexiest denim campaigns of all time

    Have you ever noticed that denim ads are some of the sexiest? And most memorable? We can’t tell you how many of the people featured on our site, jeanstories.com, swoon as they reminisce about the first time they watched the 1985 Levis’s 501s “Laundrette” TV spot featuring the handsome Nick Kamen—who ended up , ahem, sans jeans. As for print ads, think Guess, Calvin Klein … not only sexy, but envelope-pushing and groundbreaking. If concerned mothers of America are writing angry letters to their local newspapers about the boob-baring models of your campaign, you, as a jeans brand, know you’ve done something right.

    Fall shopping, decoded: How to get the most from every budget

    Smart fall shopping can’t be boiled down to some set-in-stone lineup of items. It’s much more about how you play with what you’ve got rather than just racking up a bunch of new stuff; sometimes your bank account’s balance simply won’t allow for a full-on wardrobe refresh. That’s when it’s important to know what’s worth it—and what isn’t.

    Cool collective: Fall’s best products

    Beauty editors are routinely asked to name three essentials they couldn’t live without on a desert island. So here’s our list: water, matches, protein bars. As much as we depend on beauty products, they’re not exactly essential to survival. These luxurious fragrances, nail polishes, and tools are no exception. They’re the anti-basics—hardly your medicine-cabinet staples. They won’t shrink pores or obliterate frizz, but they will make you weak with desire. And that’s a refreshing change of pace. Beyond just looking and feeling great, each of these cool new things appeals to our sense of style. How’s that for an SOS?

    12 iconic beauties who make the case for the cat eye

    Like red lipstick, cat eyes owe their timeless appeal to their spectacular, style-defining range that can, depending on application, telegraph Old Hollywood glamour, graphic minimalism, or counter-culture punk—what else do Siouxsie Sioux and Brigitte Bardot have in common? It’s impossible to think of Marilyn Monroe without those heavy-lidded bedroom eyes or Amy Winehouse sans her subversive, exaggerated swipe. A mere sweep of eye pencil transformed Anna Karina from a fresh-faced teenager into a French New Wave style icon, and Sophia Loren’s wide-eyed gaze has been forever etched into our collective memory with a frame of perfectly delineated black powder liner. Today, Alexa Chung gives the look a modern ease with a signature liquid swoosh that feels right whether she’s heading to brunch, the airport, or the red carpet. Here’s a look at the best feline eyes of all time. We feel certain that Choupette would approve.
