So a friend and I were talking about something and somehow I had to come up with a reference to a bombshell/sex symbol. My mind kind of blanked for celebrity names and all I could come up with in that second was “Kathy Ireland”. Of course, that’s really dated now as she’s in her 40s.
All I could think of off the top of my head was Jessica Alba. Is she the go-to sex symbol now? I guess there is Megan Fox but she’s kind of flash in the pan and too skanky for my tastes.
What are some good, solid, sex symbols of today?
Kathy, my dream girl when I was a lad, is still holding up incidentally:
Angeline Jolie - though she is off my list once I realized those tattoos in Wanted are real. Rebecca Romijin (nooo, Eastwick was canceled - well, she’s been looking a bit heavy in that). Monica Bellucci. Halle Berry.
Trashy Sexy - Jenna Jameson
Respectable Sexy - Katherine Heigl
Hollywood Sexy - Scarlett Johansson
Sexy to Women Sexy - Angelina Jolie
Sexy to Women who watch Soap Operas Sexy - Eva Longoria
Rubenesque Sexy - Kate Winslet
Girls that Guys like Sexy - Marisa Tomei
Woof, that askmen article has my current crush on the front, the girl from Entourage that plays Eric’s girlfriend. She is crushingly hot. It’s actually worth sitting through Zohan just to see her in a tight shirt.
edit: and I can agree with askmen about Eva Mendes, but a lot of their top ten are either fairly obscure (centerfolds and swimsuit models) or not really hot so much as pretty, like Anne Hathaway.
Holly Weber says … “For the No. 1 men’s website to rank me as one of the Top 99 Most Desirable women is a substantial achievement for me. Having AskMen.com and their readers recognize my work by including me among some of the most beautiful and talented women in the world marks a significant accomplishment in my career.”
You only beat me to it because I typed more. Great minds think alike, though.
Edit: Zhang Ziyi and Scarlett are good picks, too. They also do very, very well with what they have.
The thing is, all three of these gals… none of them fit the “beautiful” image that’s sold by the ad and fashion industries. Ziyi is too flat-chested and the white chicks are too fat. But every one of them can test you for erectile dysfunction without even taking their clothes off, with just the right look at just the right time, and it’s a different look for each one of them.
And there’s a moral in there about sex appeal that applies to everyone.
