Black Women are beautiful indeed! The 10 Most Beautiful Black Women on Brazilian TV
by Diego Sioli
People magazine chose the actress Lupita Nyong’o as the most beautiful woman in the world. But the public did not receive the news well and the comments of that black women “could not” be the most beautiful woman in the world has led us to make this list!
They are 10 Brazilian women who are black, authentic, with curly hair, full lips, expressive features and outside of the imposed standard of beauty. But that could be elected the most beautiful in the world, if People magazine or Blog Buchicho wishes. See the list below…
Do you think that every black woman is ugly? Leave your prejudices aside, because beauty is relative and possible at any age, color and condition. See the most beautiful black Brazilian women on TV:

5. LUCY RAMOS
Lucy Ramos from the northeastern state of Pernambuco has won several major roles in novelas (soap operas) of the Globo TV network, all due to her sweetness and talent in drama, but certainly her beauty must have opened many doors in theater and on TV.
4. JULIANA ALVES
Julianan Alves was once a participant on the long-running reality show Big Brother Brasil. That’s right, Juliana Alves is a former BBB, but the talent of the young woman on TV was so expressive that the public does not seem to remember this, which is very good for her. In fact, she does not need anything at all to look beautiful or talented. Not even a photo studio!

One of Brazil’s most famous actresses is black and beautiful! Taís Araújo was the first black actress to be a protagonist of a novela in the country, in both novelas outside of Globo TV such as Xica da Silva, as well as those the network such as Da Cor Do Pecado. Despite the dubious title, it was a milestone for Globo novelas show that a black woman could play the lead role of a production.

Is there another beautiful woman you think should be on this list?
Note from BW of Brazil: Well, actually, there are MANY famous Afro-Brazilian women who could be included on this list, but the one who didn’t make Diego’s cut was Camila Pitanga. After going through the list, we thought, well maybe he’s only including browner-skinned women who wear natural curly/kinky hair, but then he included Ildi Silva, who doesn’t fit either description. As such, we will include Camila here as a sort of “honorable mention” even though she is usually included in most top 10 lists throughout the blog-o-sphere. As proof of this, see the second video!
