Yes, beautiful means many things to many people. It could be hot chicks in bikinis, freshly spray tanned and hanging out at NYLO. Or it could be your charitable neighbor who single-handedly raised $100,000 for charity and takes in foster children. We’d like to think the 10 Most Beautiful Women in Dallas are somewhere in the middle. Call it cliched, but we believe beauty is more than skin deep. So if you know someone who deserves this title, nominate her today. Here are the rules:
Contestants must be 21 years of age or older and must be residents of the greater Dallas/Fort Worth area. We are looking for candidates who exemplify values and integrity in line with the D Magazine reader. What does that mean? It means that special consideration will be given to candidates who give back to the community through regular charitable donations or community activism. This contest is not based solely on physical appearance. Let’s be honest: if you’ve got shark teeth and scars where they removed your vestigial gills, you probably won’t win our contest even if you’ve selflessly dedicated your entire life to working with wayward puppy dogs. All finalists must have compassion, charisma, intelligence, and respect for fellow man–in other words, inner beauty. And, of course, smoking-hot looks. That, too. The editors reserve the right to disqualify any candidates for unsavory behavior (vapid, vain, immoral, loose, unethical, etc.). Finalists will be chosen and contacted by the D editors. Online voting begins on August 3, 2009 at 9 am CST.
