Benjai articulated it most aptly “Iz ah a proud proud Trini…dey like to how Trini does look…and dey like Trini woman wok wok wok wok…”
News spread across the island today that Trinidad and Tobago has some of the most beautiful women in the world.
It’s not surprising really, that the folks at Providr were unable to overlook the diverse blend of beauty abundant on our twin island. Their list of the sixteen countries with the most beautiful women in the world did not give a rating, but we’re pretty sure our ladies belong in the top three. That’s being humble.
This soil gave birth to the first black woman to be crowned Miss Universe in the history of the award, Janelle Commissiong, in 1977, and went on to see the gorgeous Wendy Fitzwilliam cop the title in 1998. Trinidad and Tobago has had five representatives place in runner-up positions at the international beauty pageant.
According to Providr, “Trinidadian women are well known for their extreme diversity in terms of looks due to the racial mixing on the island. The women are downright gorgeous…” In Trinidad and Tobago, you will find people of Indian, African, Chinese, Syrian, Lebanese, European, and Indigenous ancestry, to name a few.
Our women are both beautiful and intelligent. Now mix this with the fact that MSN ranked Trinidad and Tobago’s accent as the 4th sexiest in the world, and you just might have a recipe for something very close to perfection.
The team at MSN stated that “…this accent is the most charming on women for its musicality and singsong quality. If you were to plot the notes of Trinidadian speech on a music sheet, they would flit up and down throughout the staff. Even when they’re angry, Trinidadians sound sprightly.”
And according to CNN, who ranked the accent 11th sexiest in the world, it “offers an undulating, melodic gumbo of pan-African, French, Spanish, Creole and Hindi dialects that, when adapted for English, can be sex on a pogo stick.”
The full list includes Venezuela, Brasil, Argentina, Korea, Ethiopia, India, Italy, Trinidad and Tobago, Canada, USA, the UK, the Philippines, Russia, Sweden, Iran, and Australia.
Many may say validation was not needed. After all, if God is a Trini, then the women here are surely angels.
