While I've never been one to spend hours thinking about who is the most beautiful character ever, I do admit I have my favorites in terms of beauty. I might have done this list, but I'd prefer to do it now again now that I've got my favorites cleared out. I add things like likability and personality aside from physical beauty in terms of how beautiful I find the character.
Most of these choices are in between conventional and unconventional, but it's mostly into what I
personally find attractive. Remember that this list is subjective and it's all my
opinion, so don't get mad if your faves aren't here.
First Category- Children
While I wasn't thinking of adding kids, I thought I could always still mention some whom I think have a very pretty design. Thankfully, they weren't many, for I wanted to focus on adult women and most animated girls i find just to be plainly cute.
The winners here are Shanti
(from The Jungle Book) and Princess Eilonwy
(from The Black Cauldron).
Both girls are very cute. I like Shanti's innocent eyes and sweet but teasing expression, while Eilonwy I feel is just a prettier Alice. Her nose has a cute shape and I like the goofiness of her hair. I'm sure eventually they'll grow up into very beautiful ladies.
Second category- Animals
While they won't be on the list proper (save one), many animal characters have gorgeous designs and it felt right to talk about them for a while
The best looking animal female character of them all is Nala
from The Lion King. Not only does she have gorgeous animation to highlight, but she's just overall greatly designed. Her soft peach fur looks very soft and soothing and I love the shades her eyes have. She probably must have the most beautiful eyes in that film
Her human form is also stunning. I esp. like this version of Nala, the artist drew her eyes with such warmth...
Of the furry variety, I find Sawyer from Cats Don't Dance and Renamon from Digimon Tamers to have very elegant, sleek designs as well. They're very feminine but also have some masculine features here and there. Both have huge puffy tails and gorgeous eyes with very lovely colors (ambar gold and icy blue).
Runners up are Lady, from Lady and the Tramp, who is a very cute dog but I prefer her when she's drawn as a human in fanart. Miss Bianca (The Rescuers), Duchess (The Aristocats) and Rita (Oliver and Company) to have very pretty looks as well. Very elegant and feminine. The female deer in Bambi, particularly his mother and adult Faline, also have very beautiful, delicate looks; if a little too realistic at times, which may be unsettling for some.
While these ladies are certainly charming, they just couldn't make the list. But, we can still talk about them.
Merida- While I find her cute, she's certainly not stunning, with her baby face and huge eyes which may look weird and alien at times. Yet her eyes have a lovely shade of blue and of course nobody can forget her hair.
Jessica Rabbit- I'll admit it, she just looks weird. I don't mind the sexy, but she's just so overblown in her design it just seems too much. Too much makeup, too much with the sparkly dress. Too much weird anatomy.. I once found a fanart of her that I like, that it's much more realistic and shows her in a much more normal state (and imo personally she looks prettier in it)
Megara- She looks fine, but her eyebrows always make me a little confused. I'm not sure if she's supposed to be smirking or not at times, her face is just weird looking. Still, she has a lovely hair, and fantastic eyes.
Jane Porter- She's cute. I love her eyes and her upturned nose and mouth. But she's not really that stunning in my eyes to add her to the list.
Nani Pelekai- I like her sporty figure and her hair, but she's just plainly pretty to me. Not bad, but certainly out of another world.
The Blue Fairy- She has a lovely posture and beautiful hair, but the rotoscoping makes me feel a little uncomfortable at times.
Mirage (The Incredibles)- I don't think Pixar females in general tend to be attractive, and she just looks weird at some angles. Regardless, she is classy, and you can't say no to that.
Toothiana- She's not really attractive tbh. Her face looks weird and her nose looks really strange, like if someone tried to punch it in. Regardless, her design is very creative, and those purple eyes again...
Yoruichi (Bleach)- A stunning beauty, but she's too similar to one on the list, so I had to cut one of them out.
Crystal (Ferngully) Not my favorite, but I like the combo of dark hair and icy blue eyes. Gives her this young rocker vibe. And her outfit complements the whole look very well.
Anastasia Romanova- I don't like her at all, but I can't say no to a redhead with such a lovely shade of red and with those beautiful sharp eyes. Not to mention her wardrobe! What stops me from enjoying her completely is the rotoscope.
Wanda Maximoff/Rogue/Mary Jane Watson (Marvel)- Personal favorite heroines of mine, but i think in their animated forms they're just plain pretty. In the comics they're much more gorgeous.
And now, on to the actual list!
18- Vanessa (The Little Mermaid)
Though she has a very beautiful design, the reason I rate her the lowest is because, well, she's not really a person but a costume, and as such I can't say I really care for her when compared to the other characters. And she has very little screentime, so that makes me all the more indifferent to her. Regardless, she has a wonderful fluffy mane of chocolate brown hair and mesmerizing purple eyes (I just love purple).
17- The Spring Sprite (Fantasia 2000)
She's low on the list since she's not technically a human woman, but I still wanted to count her. She's definitely my favorite Disney fairy, and I just love her design. This sorta “mother nature” aspect of her is all over her design with her wild hair and those thoughtful eyes she has. There's something really comforting about her design, like there's nothing really sexual or manipulative about it. It just feels natural (pardon the pun).
16- Helga Sinclair (Atlantis the Lost Empire)
Definitely the prettiest of the Disney villainesses. Normally I'm not a fan of angular designs on characters, but on Helga it works. It just accentuates her villainous status, I suppose. Her eyes have a nice sharp edge which complements greatly her face and her hair. Her looks just ooze of the femme fatale of old movies and it's just really attractive in this old Hollywood kind of way.
15- Gogo Tomago (Big Hero 6)
She's got a really neat design. I like the punk elements of her outfit, and I like her delicate facial features, despite being a tough girl. Her eyes have a nice color and I like the shape of her haircut. I also adore her thick thighs, being one to have them myself. She just looks athletic without overdoing it.
14- Queen Elsa of Arendelle (Frozen)
Elsa only really looks good in the actual movie and in good screenshots of it. In other stuff she looks really crappy, but otherwise I do think she is very pretty. She has very cute eyes and I like the different styles her hair goes through in the movie. She's also very elegant with every movement she makes, which is also a big attractive thing to me.
13- Eris (Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas)
Oh goodness, yes, who can resist that animation!? Not only is it stunning, but it's certainly very unique; so far I haven't seen anybody try to mimick Eris' animation. For that reason alone she should be remembered. But it's not only that, her animation just helps contribute to her alluring image. Her cat eyes and that impish grin just help facilliate the image she has. Not to mention she's voiced by Michelle Pffeifer, one of the most beautiful women in the world.
12- Opal (Steven Universe)
I'm not into this show anymore, but Opal is great. She has that “white hair elegance” that I love from female characters, and I like how tall she is. Her coloring is soft and very elegant and gives off the vibe of a very relaxing sophisticated gem.
11- Princess Odette (The Swan Princess)
A very classy princess, she's one of the few modern princesses that carries the glass of elegance of the oldies like Cinderella and Aurora. Her wavy hair is memorable, and I like how it contrasts with her purple eyes. She has a very soft and elegant appearance....You'd say even swan-like.
10- Pocahontas (Pocahontas)
Oh yes! Poca definitely has a fantastic design. Based on her voice actress, the very beautiful and talented Irene Bedard, Pocahontas the same grace and diginity that she does. Her long black hair is a treasure to see, and she has a very gorgeous face with atypical features. Personally I think she looks the most gorgeous when she's not looking serenely, but that's just me.
9- Sakuyamon (Digimon Tamers)
Alright, I already included her, so that's kinda cheating...But not really since now I'm using her humanistic figure. Although we can't see her face, Sakuyamon presents herself as a lovely visual, based on the gorgeous transformation sequence she gets in the series, it's safe to assume she's a beautiful woman underneath the helmet. She's got a lovely body that's well proportioned and well, seems like the actual body of a mature woman, with her thick legs and hips. I like that. Her overall design makes one think of religion, serenity and culture, all things strongly associated with her character. Truly a beautiful and unique Digimon.
8- Blue (Wolf's Rain)
Such a beautiful woman! (well, wolf) Her blue eyes contrast greatly against her all-black ensemble, and the scarf adds a little touch to her overall soft looks. With the short haircut, she demonstrates her action girls, with the soft eyes, she shows the love she feels for her loved ones and the uncertainty she has about her origins. She's nicely shaped as well, very tall with long legs, which make her stand out when she fights.
7- Tiana (The Princess and the Frog)
Tiana is very beautiful. While I'm not a big fan of the “wide eyed Disney heroine” look, I think Tiana pulls it off better than Belle. I love her big warm eyes, and she has the prettiest smile...
6- Asenath (Joseph: King of Dreams)
While I'm not too big on this movie (don't dislike it either), I do love how beautiful the heroine in it is. I'm all for Egyptian things, and her look is just fantastic. She has this elegance combined with a soft playful attitude that makes her complement greatly Joseph. Seeing her always carrying cats also makes her out to look more elegant than she is.
5- Esmeralda (The Hunchback of Notre Dame)
She is GORGEOUS! I love almost everything about her design. She's just so beautiful and eye-catchy, it's no wonder so many men go after her in the movie. She's just breathtaking. However I have issues with her eye color...It just seems a little...unnatural for some reason? Which makes her look rather strange in some shots. I think it's because she doesn't have light in her eyes, which would make any design look a little strange and doll-like, I suppose. Doesn't negate the rest of her beauty though. I'm in love with her color scheme and body, it's just fantastic.
4- Lady Amalthea (The Last Unicorn)
My girl! Easily one of the most beautiful designs ever. It just carries so much elegance and grief and presence, just with her looks you can imagine her entering into a room and everything gets silent because everyone would set their attention on her. Her eyes are mezmering, her hair is of the loveliest shade (and i just love how detailed the animators when drawing it), and her figure is also charming. The only downside I'll say is that the coloring at times in the movie is off, and it makes her look in some scenes like she's wearing the most hideous pink shade of makeup, like the ones you see in old ugly Barbies...She's still wonderful though. <3
3- Princess Iasmine (Aladdin)
Definitely the best looking princess of the 90s. I love her recognizable hairdo and her beautiful two piece outfit. She has a great complexion and a lovely smile.
2- Giselle (Enchanted)
I adore her design. With that gorgeous shade of red and those lovely cat eyes, she's one of the prettiest animated redheads, if not the prettiest. I love her Art Nouveau motif and everything associated with it, she just screams “spring” in her design.
1- Princess Aurora (Sleeping Beauty)
Surprise surprise. Well what can I say? She's certainly the most gorgeous of them all. Beautiful golden locks, soft red lips, a gorgeous posture...Really I can't say anything more that hasn't been said before.
(Sorry for no Aurora pictures I ran out of space)
Well, hope you enjoyed it! Got any comments about this article? Just say it below! :D
