They're all pretty easy on the eyes when you think about it. Have you ever seen a high ranking skating girl that isn't? The judges must weed the others out.
for me the most gorgeous one is Elena Ilinykh. Nathalie Pechalat is also very pretty, as well as Pernelle Carron.
I also love the nymphish, ephemeral look of Meryl, but I wouldn't call her a classical beauty.
Of those who retired, Margarita Drobiazko, however she did have a period of too much make up. With long her and natural make-up, she's gorgeous (still, despite time passing). Irina Lobacheva was another gorgeous one. Tanith Belbin as well.

Krylova and Dubreuil.
Belbin is also lovely. Drobiazko in her 40's looks 1000x better without the trowels full of make-up than she did when she was competing. In the interview footage from "Ice Age," Domnina reminded me of a younger, softer-faced Sheila McCarthy (Sarah Hamoudi on "Little Mosque on the Prairie").

From those still in competition:
Nathalie Pechalat, Madison Chock and Anna Cappellini.
Anna Cappellini. She is one of the most beautiful and smart girls I've ever met.
