Damaris Lewis has one of those faces you never forget. Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, the 23-year-old model has stamped her beauty on the 2009, 2010, and 2011 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issues. Lewis is well trained in performing arts, has appeared in the music video for Kanye West’s single “Monster” and was selected by Prince to be his muse and dancer during his Welcome 2 Australia Tour 2012 with The New Power Generation.


Arlenis Sosa Peña is a 24-year-old Dominican fashion model who went from battling the color prejudice of designers in the Dominican Republic to representing the most prestigious designers and fashion houses in the world. She is the current spokesmodel for Lancôme. She also appeared in the 2008 Victoria’s Secret fashion show. Arlenis is proud of her black heritage and has said: “We Dominicans should value the things we have principally our beauty, our country is black, not blond and blue-eyed.”

    No, just honouring beauty…

  35. Chyna Whyne says:

    Read this article in the Atlanta Black star were Iman and Naomi Campbell speak out about the lack of dark skinned models being presented in the media and put on the runways… Do you think this is one of the reasons why people are bleaching their skin?…dark skinned people are hardly anywhere to be see in the world of fashion arts and entertainment!!!….Do dark skinned people have less to identify with?

  36. why not? you looks beautiful !!!

  37. Brenton 'Danny' Scale says:

    Gwaan mi Chyna!

  38. Sam Cook if there's only 20 how could the love be spread around?

  39. All lovely ladies no doubt! However, since you have one that is from India, how did she become black as opposed to Asian? I guess 19 out of 20 is OK LOL

  40. Kenisha,,,my Cuz..of course a realbeauty ,,bless her

  41. LeRoy Clarke says:

    Thank you Mark… Your eye is the keenest… Indeed, Kenisha is one of the most beautiful under the gaze of the heavens! What a rare moment caught by you! Congratulations!


  42. They got it right! YOU are stunning beautiful! : )

  43. Roger Baptiste Wendy wasnt 2nd she was third . Chesea smith from U.s was 2nd. Trinidad and Tobago should feel very proud out of the five we have two including the first.

  44. Danielle ☥ Toppin says:

    i just hate when they write things like "Most Beautiful Black Women" though…can't people just write 20 of the most beautiful women around the world and they all be black?

  46. Een Gesin says:

    External looks are just a wrapper. True beauty comes from within 🙂

  47. Anna Lee Loy says:

    I don't know if the original text was changed…..but it says "Kenia Martinez, 26, was crowned Miss Universe HONDURAS 2010 and is the second black woman to win the title"…..which means she was the second black woman to win the miss universe honduras title….the local leg of the competition

  48. Danielle ☥ Toppin …yes..crossed my mind..I just lacked the skills to Hack this site! 🙁

  49. Lisa Besley says:

    Roger Baptiste I don't think you read the article correctly. It said she was the 2nd black woman to win Miss Universe Honduras not Miss Universe.;-) In other words she was the 2nd black woman IN Honduras to win the title.

  51. Opie Ever says:

    And their goals are…world peace. *rolls eyes* How lovely how all of them are models.
    Scoured the world and could not come up with a single beautiful black woman who like…had a career not solely based on her looks?

  52. Julie Williams says:

    Dark skin equals black…how else could she get that way? We're global… Putting myself on the list 🙂

  53. Dark skin equals black…how else could she get that way? We're global… Putting myself on the list 🙂

  54. Out of the 20 women I must agree that about 6 are really beautiful including Kenisha Thom . Credits should only be given to the Makeup Artist for the others.

  55. The title of this article should be "20 of the Most Stunningly Beautiful Women From Around The World".

  56. Julie Williams You ARE beautiful. Thanks for the scenery, NUFF Said!!!

  57. Julie Williams You ARE beautiful. Thanks for the scenery, NUFF Said!!!

  58. Danielle ☥ Toppin Darn, they ARE the Most beautiful BLACK women. Don't be too dense. They are talking about 'BLACK' women. Don't read into it what is not intended. NUFF Said!!!

  65. Baba Otu says:

    what about the lady that won Miss World some years back from nigeria

  66. Agbani,right?dnt mind dem

  67. Agbani,right?dnt mind dem

  68. Baba Otu says:

    Agbani my brother,she deserve to be here.

  69. Am happy that there's a ugandan on this long list of models.

  70. Alan Bonney says:

    Beautiful women indeed every one of them.

  71. the only unattractive one is Rissikat Bade. But I wonder what percentage of these "black" women are actually biracial.

  72. Leila Lopes, wow!!!!!!!!!!!

  73. Ruejy Ashton says:

    So black women with the least traditional black features are the "most beautiful"??? such a message coming from a so-called black magazine. The more things change the more they remain the same. Of course you can be as dark as you want to be, as long as your features appear "mixed-race", be it with Indian, Chinese, white, whatever…..

  74. Reggie Edu says:

    You fail to realize that if you travel throughout the entire continent of Africa and meet all the different type of indigenous people living there…you will find every single "physical feature" known. Wide noses, pointy noses, large eyes, small eyes, coiled hair, naturally wavy hair, dark brown skin, light brown skin, etc are all found on different types of indigenous african people…don't let the european classification of things fool you. I can show you an african man with skin that is virtually the color black with a nose as pointy as any Nordic man. Don't forget Africans are genetically more diverse than the rest of the world combined.

  75. Reggie Edu says:

    When has a competition or magazine/tv/online feature highlighting the most beautiful women, ever shown the women in their "natural state" I've never seen that. And for the ones wearing make-up, for majority if not all of them the noticeable make-up worn does nothing to enhance their beauty and if anything detracts from it. I see the natural beauty of all of them, which can not be said for many of Hollywood's Darlings whose beauty is directly correlated to how much make-up they have on.

  76. Anonymous says:

    This list is official. However, I would suggest you see to see a more complete list.

  77. Katrina Coakley says:

    …are we looking at the same women? I was thinking the exact opposite. I guess this just goes to show that "tradition" is relative.

  78. Dick Cannon says:

    Black Women are the most Beautiful Women In the Whole Wide World!!!

  79. Dick Cannon says:

    I am a white guy, but Veronique Boubane is the most beautiful Miss Everything, wow, you go girl! I am absolutely awed by her beauty:)

  80. Dick Cannon says:

    Joelle Kayembe is an absolute Goddess:)))

  81. Dick Cannon says:

    Lydia Marsha and Joelle Kayembe are the epitome of Beauty!

  82. Strange Brew says:

    This doesn't sound well searched and studied before posting it here ! First of all where is The Famous Liya Kebede ( the first African ever to be on the cover of vogue before anyone else , and also she is the spokesperson for united nation ) I believe she is from East Africa . And Also the first Immigrant Non-Israel , African woman who won Miss-Israel in 2013. and She is also studying law and one of the most influential person in Europe. So I would say dig it well !!!!

  83. Did you notice the one thing they have in common, besides God's gift of being beautiful? No Graffiti (tattoos) on that art work!

  84. Deborah Rosanwo says:

    I'd better put myself up as well! Chubby cheeks, luscious lips and a mocca complexion with a touch of cinnamon…I pass!

  85. All the women are stunning, but how can you leave off Miss Black USA, which CELEBRATES the diverse beauty of Black women who come in different shades and sizes.

  89. Tony Gomez says:

    you belong there

  90. Donna Marie says:

    Very Nice!

  91. Chyna Whyne, you should definitely add yourself. Your beauty is inside and outside (inward and outward); it radiates from within. I don't know about theirs.

  92. Ruejy Ashton says:

    Reggie Edu , all you did was STILL solidified what I stated. There are all types like you have described, yet ONLY those with the features closest to Europeans are ALWAYS featured. My statement was simple and FACTUAL. If anything, you fail to acknowledge the trend. No where in my statement did I imply that Africans are not genetically diverse. I don't give much attention to FB hence my delayed response. You cannot school me on my heritage. FYI: Majority of Africans have broader noses etc, hence the TRADITIONAL clause. In all aspect of probability, the "more likely" or "majority" take precedence.

  93. Ruejy Ashton says:

    Katrina Coakley , I guess you're off on another trail, it's clear that you would agree with anything that appears to bring you further away from how "Black" is predominantly represented.

  94. Martin Ebere says:

    Teaching the word of God, Mark 6:5 tells us “He could not do any miracles there, except lay his hands on a few sick people and heal them.” Jesus also got tired and slept (4:38), something we would never expect an all-powerful God to do. Yes, Jesus at His first coming had limitations – limitations he placed on himself. This is clearly stated in Philippians 2:5-8:

    “… Christ Jesus:
    Who, being in very nature God,
    did not consider equality with God something to be used to His own advantage;
    rather, He made himself nothing
    by taking the very nature of a servant,
    being made in human likeness.
    And being found in appearance as a man,
    He humbled Himself
    by becoming obedient to death—
    even death on a cross!”

    In the Mark 6:5 incident, Jesus was in His hometown of Nazareth where they 'took offense at Him' (Mark 6:3). The crowd was so hostile to Him that they even wanted to kill Him (Luke 4:28-30). Jesus was amazed at their lack of faith (Mark 6:6). But there were a few sick people who believed in Him and He healed them (Mark 6:5). If you are bleeding to death and only a blood transfusion can save you but you fiercely reject the only doctor who can provide the transfusion, the doctor can't do anything to save you.

    As for the healing of the blind man (8:22-26), couldn't Jesus have healed him immediately? Of course, He could have but He chose to make it a process. Why? Because, Jesus healing of the man is an illustration of how some people come to faith in Jesus. Immediately after this healing we have the passage where Peter confesses Jesus as the Christ (8:27-30). Peter has recognised something of who Jesus really is, but he doesn’t yet see this clearly (like the blind man only seeing partially at the start), since Peter then rebukes Jesus when Jesus says he must die (8:31-32). So this healing is an illustration, not a limitation of Jesus.

    If you are still not convinced that Jesus is all-knowing and all-powerful, please read the passages below.

    Revelation 1:12-18
    I turned around to see the voice that was speaking to me. And when I turned I saw seven golden lampstands, and among the lampstands was someone like a son of man, dressed in a robe reaching down to his feet and with a golden sash around his chest. The hair on his head was white like wool, as white as snow, and his eyes were like blazing fire. His feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace, and his voice was like the sound of rushing waters. In his right hand he held seven stars, and coming out of his mouth was a sharp, double-edged sword. His face was like the sun shining in all its brilliance.
    When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. Then he placed his right hand on me and said: “Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last. I am the Living One; I was dead,and now look, I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades.

    Philippians 2:9-11
    Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
    and gave him the name that is above every name,
    that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
    in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
    and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,
    to the glory of God the Father.

    Jamaica should be ashamed because all they do is promote those girls that are of brown complexion. and putting down our girls of the darker complexion, this results in our dark sisters bleaching themselves and damaging their beautiful skins. Jamaica has less truly beautiful black women with the bleaching and weaving of false hair at an alarming rate. Our black women do NOT love themselves because the men in this country craves brown or lighter colored women.
    Thiis explains why we have so many high colored beauty queens.

  96. Katrina Coakley says:

    "Clearly?" Not so much. I'm well aware of when/where we are represented and when/where are not, oftentimes because I'm a person who puts my time where my heart is. I won't get into marketing, stereotypes, real-life representation or the lack thereof with you. Just know that you are not in a position to be clear on anything regarding me.

  97. Jenny Rietta says:

    I disagree with your "least Black feature" comment.

  98. I love this! Maybe you all could revise the title to describing "women of African decent" instead of "black women" seeing that "black" is a socially constructed word derived and used by Americans only. Just a suggestion because there are many beautiful Afro-descended women on this list that aren't "black" or African-American women.

    Thanks for posting! Share more like these 🙂

  100. Kay Turner says:

    oh shut your mouth. Jamaica made the list.

  101. Kay Turner says:

    Reggie Edu well said!

  102. Ataui Deng is missing, she is so gorgeous!!!

  103. so 90% of these women had their hair straighten and they are the most beautiful "BLACK" women? lol.

  104. Doug Handy says:

    The most beautiful ones have less paint and real eyebrows instead of the hideous "magic marker" effect.

  105. Nece Moore says:

    Where is Alex Wek…she's beautiful, her skin is flawless!!!

  106. Would it be racist to have an online magazine called atlantawhitestar or a list of the top 20 most beautiful white women in the world? Would it? On another note, I have seen pretty girls, all black /spanish, pumping gas in their vehicles. This least is garbage.

  107. As one man said, in Africa we have a variety of phenotypes broad noses, thin noses light skin, dark etc. Instead of saying the women chosen have European featured, why not say European have African features. Some people say I have European features, I say nope, you have African features. No denying Africa is the birthplace of man and the worlds ethnicities have evolved from the various African tribes. Also many of the women listed are beautiful but how many of the non African models (Tomiko included) have the nose they were born with. That's why I respect African models aside from imam on that respect because many have breast implant and contoured their noses where majority of the African models are still natural when they were discovered/signed. On a last note majority of Africans abroad in places like UK and USA tend to be West African so when one thinks of beauty and Africa are just thinking of that phenotype which is different to others and thus the comparison appear with European features rubbish prefrence when a non west African model is compared to west African model. Not to take away from the models but straighting hair so we being doing this in African long before madam c invented relaxers, that is not a problem but nose jobs are. Reminds me of the African Egyptian artifacts with the noses knocked off to hide Africa's might.

  109. I'm pretty sure it says Black women…which means this list is full of women composed of various ethnicity or even one ethnicity but who a darker skinned, not just pure Africans and/or African-Americans. So no, not every black woman has the same grade of hair, same facial features, same anything cause they're all individuals. You want your idea of "black beauty" acknowledge, then stop pushing your idea of what "black" or "beauty" should be onto people, just like you want them to stop pushing their ideas onto you. If you'e embraced a certain lifestyle and believe others should too because it's"who they are"then that's cool but let everyone have their own journey to find themselves. No one is better than any other person cause "they're natural" or "they have a chemical treatment". Or "she doesn't wear makeup" and she "has a face full of paint and fake eyebrows. my goodness, can people just be left alone to adorn themselves or not adorn themselves in the manner in which they wish?! You don't have to like it or incorporate it in your life, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I'm sure another group of people compost a similar list, they'd have something different. Everyone has their own preference and a different perspective, why is the first reaction to put down one another?! Ugh.

  110. I love Black women, the truly come in different shades, shapes, Straight hair natural hair, no hair don't care… they just beautiful…

  111. Dee Butler says:

    How could Sanaa Lathan not be featured here? ,I smell a rat…

  112. it is very unfortunate that these yes very pretty women, had to be sexualized by clothing(meaning having to show what is privite, their body and ones business) the male culture SUCKS!

  113. Rod Lewis says:

    Joelle Kayembe O.M.G.

  114. I love the variety of looks represented in the selection of all these beautiful women. How did Lupita Nyong'o get over-looked? Her beauty radiates inside as well as outside.

  115. Eric Moore says:

    Why can't this simply be entitled The Most Beautiful Women in the World.

  116. I would say, beauty is nice but it's not everything. In my experience, some of the most beautiful black women, inside and out, that I've met just so happened to live outside of the U.S. with the exception of the north west (Oregon, Washington). The best attitudes I've encountered were from black women living in Canada and Europe. In addition to that, Lupita Nyong'o should have definitely made the list.

  117. These woman are really beautiful, I wonder if I could add myself to this list?

  118. people from the dominican republic should be called dominican republicans.

  119. Damon Moore says:

    I think the women are beautiful BUT black women look beautiful without make up. And, black women look beautiful at various stages of their life. I wish we wouldn't fall in with popular views of what beauty is and OPEN OUR EYES to true beauty.

  120. Jay Muhammad says:

    It really pleases me to see that the authors of this article had the intelligence to know that Black has no limits by including the Indian sister. Next time I hope they include some Aborigines as well.

  121. Complain, complain, complain. They are beautiful. Each one.

  122. God CREATED Africans 1st… Africans cannot have European features …europeans have African features …they came from you….

  123. We're perfect. Whats the problem?

  124. Ruejy Ashton Nobody is "pure" anything.

  125. Ruejy Ashton The hate just radiates off of you.

  126. It's really sad how bitter some people are. I'm happy and confident in myself thus I feel no need to be threatened by anyone or anything different. I don't feel the need to put others down simply to bring myself up. I don't need for the media and/or society to acknowledge what I already know, which is that I'm beautiful. I just feel bad forpeople who don't have that peace of mind. It must be extremely tiresome to go through life with your nose turned up and you're forehead all wrinkled, trying to convince everyone around you and even yourself that you're worth being valued.

  127. Get rid of "black" in the headline. They're beautiful women. Period. Not only as black women. The qualifier of "black" continues to normalize non-black beauty and it's long past time to de-normalize that idea.

  128. Craig D. Casimir And this list in a mainstream magazine would include only white women, but it wouldn't be called "The 20 most beautiful WHITE women".

  129. The race topic is getting boring…I just like certain women period!

  130. And the rest are wearing weaves.. smh

  131. Eloquently Stated, Jade!

  132. Shara Banks says:

    Lysha Jay Milian When we use the term "black" it is a symbolic not literal meaning to embrace all women of color. For example there was a woman here from India with dark skin. Afro descended maybe your preference but world wide when you say black women it is understood that you are speaking of women from the African diaspora and then some. I am the descendent of African slaves and American natives. Afro implies that I am only from Africa (or the descendent of black people dispersed in the slave trade) when in reality I am a native American as well. It s kind of how Malcom X, replaced his last name with a symbol to cancel out all the misnomers people give us. But at the end of the day does it really matter? Would a rose called by any other name smell less sweet?

  133. Shara Banks says:

    No, it would not be racist. But since white people have not been historically marginalized and largely ignored by popular media outlets, and unfairly represented in mainstream magazines it is not as necessary to create alternative publications catered to these people that give more accurate representations of them. Besides it is just ONE List amongst many. Would you post a similar statement if it was tilted "Most Beautiful Red Heads In the World?

  134. Nakia Deon why R U so quick to place white people in africa. listen to the news: the only human genotype comes out of africa, Black people. the others are various degrees of neanderthal. educate yourself about that.

  135. yeah we are pure, mimi. Black people are not neanderthal like the rest of you.

  136. there is nothing wrong with beauty enhancement. don't let that be your focus. the women pictured here are the most beautiful women on the face of the earth and guess what, y'all, they ain't white. I always felt the attention given to the beauty of white women is over-rated, way over-rated.

  137. WHY are most of these women's hair straight?

  138. Give us REAL ,natural, beautiful, Black (dark) women!

  139. I have a problem with Black women representing white countries in beauty contest. This is manipulation by the elitrs who want to blur culture and mix us up to make it easier to control us all. This creates anger in people. A black woman does norridiculoust represent the women in a white dominant society.
