Ever wonder what the 15 most beautiful nationalities in the world are? You’ve come to the right place. This is a list of some of the most attractive ethnicities for men and women around the world.
The world is filled with so many different kinds of people and faces. People with different traditions, different styles, and different shaped noses. That’s the beauty of it. Our differences are what make us beautiful. But as the saying goes, “beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” What one person considers the most beautiful race in the world could be entirely different to someone else. This is because of our different styles and upbringings. In the same way, a man may have a preference for only blondes or only brunettes; some people just don’t consider certain features attractive.
Now, we’re gonna get a little sugary on you. It’s true that everyone is beautiful in their own way, even the person who may be most unattractive to you. No matter what a person looks like, it’s what’s on the inside that counts, and a beautiful inside can create a more beautiful outside. So don’t let generalizations like this make you feel inferior. So don’t panic. If your nationality isn’t on this list, you’re not cursed to be single for the rest of your life. Hollywood and the media, as well as the beauty contests and most attractive ethnicity polls on which this list is based, can easily put the wrong ideas in the minds of the ones left out. The ones whose candidate may not have performed perfectly or worn the right outfit. Remember that beauty can easily be found in every nationality. So no matter what part of the globe you or your ancestors come from, and whether your people made this list or any other, you can shine above it all.
To rank our nationalities, we used a special scoring system that included the following sources: Elite Reader’s Countries With Most Beautiful Women, World Atlas’s Countries With World’s Most Beautiful Women, Destination Point’s Top 11 Countries with The Most Beautiful Women in the World, and Defense’s 15 Most Attractive Nationalities On Earth. Each time a country or nationality landed a spot on one of the most attractive nationality polls above, we gave it a score according to its spot on the list. For instance, if the nationality scored between 1st and 5th on a list, we gave it 3 points. If a country scored between 6th and 10th on a list, we gave it 2 points, and if a country scored over 11th on a list, we gave it one point. This way, the countries with the lowest rankings got the lowest amount of points and vice versa. We also incorporated this list of Miss Universe winners since 1952 into our scoring. For every time a country/nationality won Miss Universe, we gave it 5 additional points. And since this has been a worldwide, well-known contest for well over 60 years, we considered it a pretty good judge of what the general public considers beautiful. As a result, nationalities with the most points can be found at the end of this list, as well as a list of runners-up.
But remember all the disclaimers we mentioned about the definition of beauty before, you go trying to look like one of the nationalities we mention. In this list, you’ll find some of the most beautiful nationalities in Asia, Europe, Central America, South America and the rest of the world, but only according to the general public.

So without further ado, here are 15 most beautiful nationalities in the world. We are starting off with the 10th place on our list since the last 4 nationalities share it, due to the same number of points they got.
10. Argentinian (Argentina)
Adults and children literally travel home after lunch each day to take a siesta. #jealous This nationality definitely gets their beauty sleep.
10. Thai (Thailand)
Just look at how easy these children are on the eyes. It’s no wonder Thailand scored top 6 in 2016 Miss Universe, top 20 in 2016 Miss World, and top 15 in 2016 Miss International.
10. Finns (Finland)
Read about how the first black woman won a Finnish beauty contest here. No wonder they placed eleventh on this list of 15 most beautiful nationalities in the world.
10. Trinidadian (Trinidad & Tobago)
Not only is this nationality beautiful, but they also have a great accent, ranked 10th among CNN’s Top 10 Sexiest Accents in the World.
9. Canadian (Canada)
And finally, the 9th spot on our list of most beautiful nationalities in the world. It is taken by Canadians who are even more beautiful because their hair and skin can survive those harsh winter temps. They also charmingly insert “aye” into their sentences quite frequently.
8. Australian (Australia)
Australia may have beautiful competing adults, but they asked an American Child beauty contest to keep away from their country. Way to put your foot down, Aussies.
The following two nationalities have the same rank on our list of most beautiful nationalities in the world.
6. Colombian (Colombia)
Colombia has the greatest number of beauty pageants in the world, with more than 10 a day country-wide. C’mon Colombia, that’s just showing off.
6. French (France)
The French eat 30,000 tons of snails per year. Maybe that’s their best-kept beauty secret.
4. Indian (India)
India has a lot of natural beauty products they consider their best secrets, including neem oil, turmeric, and saffron. (Read more about it here.)
4. Filipino (Philippines)
The people here are probably so beautiful because of all the nutritious tropical fruits that are so readily available here.
5. Brazilian (Brazil)
Brazilians take beauty so seriously that they spend about $240 a year on beauty products on average.
4. Swedish (Sweden)
The blue-eyed blondes here are apparently a big hit, and for some reason, their features match the Swedish flag perfectly.
3. Puerto Rican (Puerto Rico)
Miss Puerto Rico won Miss World in 2016. There’s something about that Latino beauty.
2. Venezuelan (Venezuela)
This country on our list of most beautiful nationalities in the world not only holds some of the most beautiful people in the world, but it’s also home to Angel Falls, the tallest waterfall in the world.
1. American (North America)
Yep, according to the general public, we’re one of the most beautiful nationalities. The Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and Spain are all runners-up. That’s it for our list of 15 most beautiful nationalities in the world!
