Beautiful Women From Around the World: Atlas of Beauty

Beauty comes in all shapes, sizes, and colors. It exists everywhere, and in every cultures. Our perceptions of beauty may be different, but beauty is universal.

To prove that beauty is everywhere, Romanian photographer Mihaela Noroc has traveled to several different countries across several different continents in order to capture beautiful women surrounded by their culture. Her project is called Atlas of Beauty.

In the past two years I traveled around the world and I photographed hundreds of women in diverse environments. My goal is to show that beauty is in our differences, not in trends, money or race. Through my photography I want to capture that feeling of warmth and serenity which is so specific to women and comes to balance all the negativity we see in the media. I think people should be more aware about other cultures and beauty can teach us to be more tolerant.

She will continue her journey, to expose the beauty flourishing throughout our vast world.

Here are 20 beautiful women from her endeavors.

1. Romania

Which was your favorite photo?

This take was simple, yes, but it was fun to put together, and a filler for the more serious takes that I am working on. :) I will also do a take like this one on men, to show the standards that society has for men around the world as well.

Thanks for reading, and if you want to see more beautiful women from Noroc's adventures, check out the original article here.

  • I knew about Noroc and her project before and while I love the photos and I like the idea behind it, I also have my difficulties with it to be honest. One of the questions that I asked myself when I first saw this art project was "How come there are only women?" Does Noroc suggest that only women can be beautiful? Apart from the possibly sexist undertones, I also just find it a bit too "clichรฉe" to think "I wanna make a project about beauty... oh yeah, let's just take pics of a couple of women". Why not men? Why not children? Why are all the women in their 20s? Is that the only period in life where one is beautiful?
    Another difficulty I have with this is that while Noroc probably tried to be as neutral as possible, we also have to ask ourselves how much these choices reflect on HER personal taste of beauty. Personally, I don't find all them pretty. I wouldn't go on a date with the Romanian or the Indian girl for example. However, that doesn't mean they're not pretty. It also doesn't mean there's no beauty in their respective country, since one woman is hardly representative of a whole nation.
    This just as a little food for thought.
    But I won't be a party crasher and so I'm also gonna finish with simply stating my favorite:
    1. Colombian girl
    2. Chinese girl
    3. Brazilian girl
    4. Kyrgyz girl

  • Is the appreciation of beauty instinctive? I know I was indoctrinated by mass media to see beauty as a certain look but nobody, for example, taught me to see Grace Jones as beautiful but she is, especially from her prime.

    I think there is an instinctive component.

  • Can i disagree with England please?

    Not to say she's ugly or anything, she's not, she's actually rather pretty but... Look at the other countries, Ethiopa for example, You picked a person who showcases what i can only assume is a native tribe.

    Yet, For England... she's got more of a Generic American punk look going on, Why not have someone who looks a little more... British? Haha.

    Like i said, She is pretty but.. Dosent look very English ;)

    • I thought she looked different. That's why I added her haha. :)

    • Show All
    • @chintita My point entirely, Haha, As i said, Dont get me wrong she is a very pretty person, But... Its 70's-90's American Hippie... Not the sort of Womanly Elegance i would associate with a British woman, Haha.

    • Yeah I just added her because she looked different :) According to the original article she is not from the richer parts of England.

  • With all the questions on GAG about race and attractiveness, thank you for this great reminder that women of all races, and from everywhere in the world are beautiful.

  • They are all gorgeous! I hate when idiots say: oh this one is the hottest"
    Grow up! They are all lovely in their own way
    I'm sure the purpose of this book is not to degrade these women like they're on miss universe! It's to show ignorant americans that women worldwide rule in beauty! beauty not bought or sold! Beauty you can't buy at the Mac counter! Femininity you can't buy from Instagram

  • Brazilian woman was very sexy and I liked Iranian woman's eyes, they are soulful.
    The rest were gorgeous too but they were the one that caught my eyes... by the way thanks for adding a simple looking Indian girl, she is very pretty and she is actually represents our majority. Not that our models are bad but they all are typical, I liked how you choose the 'common' women instead of the models.

    Please do a take on men too! I would like to read it as well.
