How do you compile a list of the most beautiful woman across Africa in the last decade?
Well, the definition of beauty is more shrouded in ambiguity now than it ever has been before. Beauty varies from one culture or individual to another. Therefore, compiling a list of the most beautiful women in Africa is no easy task.
But for Style Rave, beauty goes beyond physical appearance. It cuts deep into charisma, elegance, relevance and the impact said women are making in their respective communities and beyond.
With that in mind, the fashion and lifestyle organization has compiled a list of 30 most beautiful African women of the last decade. According to Style Rave, the women on the list are those who use their platform and give off their time and resources in a bid to give back to society.
The list includes African women living within the continent and those based abroad – such as Black Panther actress Danai Gurira.
Nigerian women who made the cut include Linda Ikeji, Omtola Jalade-Ekeinde, Stephanie Okereke Linus, Yvonne Okoro and Osas Ighodaro.
