Ah, Florida, the theme park capital of the world and birthplace of NASCAR and Gatorade. The list of what America’s most southernmost state has gifted us is endless.
But today we’re not going to talk about why Florida is nicknamed the Sunshine State- okay, maybe just a little! Did you know it holds the Guinness World Record for most consecutive days of sunshine? That’s 768, 25 months of sunshine that occurred from February 1967 to March 1969.
Instead, today we’ll be talking about the most beautiful women born in Florida! We’ve put together a list of 12 notable women from the Sunshine State, from the least to most well known according to Ranker.com. Can you guess who made it on the number one spot?
12. Crystal Renn
Crystal Renn is a notable fashion model and author born in Miami on June 18, 1986. She began her career in fashion at the age of 14 after being spotted by a professional scout. Many young girls would have probably loved being in her shoes, but Renn’s life took a turn for the worst when she was told she needed to lose weight in order to fit into industry standards.
After battling anorexia nervosa for years, the model turned her life around and managed to gain some weight, re-inventing herself as a plus-size model. This, in turn, lead her to write Hungry: A Young Model’s Story of Appetite, Ambition and the Ultimate Embrace of Curves, thus becoming an inspiration to other aspiring models who suffer from similar body image issues.
