England has handed us some of the most beautiful women in the world. Sure, California girls tend to get the most attention with their tanned skin, daisy dukes, and Katy Perry songs --But they're overrated. True glamour comes from the old country. And if you need proof of that look no further than total bombshells like Kate Beckinsale, Kiera Knightley, Victoria Beckham, Elizabeth Hurley, Naomi Campbell, Emily Blunt, Thandie Newton, and Rachel Weisz. They're who set the stage. But the women on this list are the ones that English boys are desperately trying to keep for themselves. Why? Well, it's because they're some of the youngest, hottest, and most sought-after stars currently on the planet. Without further ado, here are 20 Britsh babes that English dudes want for themselves.
20 Sophie Turner May Not Be The Queen of England, But She's Certainly Queen Of The North
She's everywhere. Honestly, Sophie Turner has somehow become one of the biggest stars in the world. We should definitely thank Game of Thrones and the X-Men prequels for her rapid star growth. But it's also because the tabloids eat her up. They want to know everything about her and Joe Jonas, where her tattoos are, and what hair color she's currently rocking. Oh, and the fact that she's a total fox.
19 Emilia Clarke Was The Poster On The Wall On An Entire Generation Of Nerds
Sophie Turner isn't the biggest thing to come from Game of Thrones... Nope, that would be London-born Emilia Clarke. After all, she's plastered on the bedroom walls of an entire generation of nerds. The Khaleesi was a central figure in all of their wet dreams and probably will be until their last days. Even with what the show did to her character by the end. The fact that she's also been in Solo: A Star Wars Story and Terminator Genisys doesn't help her escape being the focus of the acne-ridden basement dwellers.
18 Jude Law's Daughter Iris Law Is Taking The World By Storm And It's Just Not Fair
Well, holy F! Jude Law and Sadie Frost really gave us a friggin diamond with 18-year-old Iris. Chanel certainly thinks so. After all, they offered her a six-figure salary to model with them in 2017. Her vast and growing Insta following is also backing this British beauty. She was genetically predisposed to being an utter babe. Her dad is a handsome dude and her mom's a rocket. So, this shouldn't be surprising.
17 We Grew Up With Emma Watson But We're Still Crushing On Her
An entire generation grew up with Emma Watson, effectively making her the girl-next-door that we all eventually fell in love with. It was practically impossible not to. Even those who weren't attracted to Hermione Granger's book smarts couldn't deny her ridiculous physical transformation by Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Honestly, the Potter, My Week With Marilyn, Perks of Being A Wallflower, and The Bling Ring star is a downright beauty.
16 Lily Collins Has Completely Lost Her Accent But She's Still A British Babe Whether She Likes It Or Not
Everyone thinks of Lily Collins as a State-side beauty. And she is. After all, she spent most of her time in Canada and the States. But she was born in England to a very famous English musician, Phil Collins. So, yeah, even if this eyebrow-queen isn't known for it, she's a Brit through-and-through. And we thank England for it!
15 We Wonder If Nathalie Emmanuel Speaks That Many Languages In Real life
Okay, okay, one more Game of Thrones star for you! Nathalie Emmanuel is best known for her multi-languaged role on the show. She's also making a name for herself thanks to characters in Furious 7, Maze Runner, and The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance. Her posh English accent is one of her most attractive qualities, although she's also ludicrously fit which definitely doesn't hurt matters,
14 Ella Purnell Is Less Sweetbitter And More Hot AF
Sultry and seductive seem to be appropriate descriptive words for Ella Purnell. She's best known for her role on Starz' Sweetbitter, which shows off her adventurous, wild side. There's no doubt, that we love her in it. But she's also rocked roles in Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children and Never Let Me Go. Those remarkably stunning natural lips and cat-like eyes cue her up to take on the role of Selina Kyle... At least, we hope so!
13 Naomi Scott Is The One Who Can Show Us The World
Yep, Princess Jasmine is an English babe that the boys across the pond want to keep for themselves. But she's not having it. She's too busy making moves in Hollywood that will soon solidify her as one of the biggest stars of her generation. Of course, she's also known for her characters in Terra Nova and Power Rangers. There's literally no-stopping this beauty-queen.
12 Lily Mo Sheen Is The New And Improved Kate Beckinsale... So Keep Pete Davidson Away
Yeah, let's keep Pete Davidson away, shall we? He has a type and Lily Mo Sheen falls into that category... just like her mother, Kate Beckinsale did. The 20-year-old resides in Los Angeles but was born in England to her English parents, Kate, and actor Michael Sheen. She's been in a couple of her mother's movies as well as modeled, but she's most famous for her social media presence. That and being an arguably more attractive younger version of her gorgeous mom.
11 Excuse Us, We're Just Gonna Stare At Ellie Bamber For A Little While...
It's nothing short of amazing how Ellie Bamber is so famous given the fact that she's only been in a few big roles. Of course, she's been in Nocturnal Animals, The Nutcracker and The Four Realms, and rocked the role of Cosette in the BBC One television series, Les Misérables. But she's famous for her heart-stopping good looks. That, and dating Richard Madden for a hot minute.
10 Cara Delevingne Reminds Us That Ashley Benson Is One Lucky Girl
The London-born actor/model certainly isn't everyone's cup of tea. That's because she takes risks. Most of the time, they pay off. Regardless, she doesn't give a F! And we love her for it. The gorgeous Carnival Row, Paper Towns, and Suicide Squad star is one of the most interesting looking talents around. No wonder Pretty Little Liars star Ashley Benson has claimed Cara for herself.
9 It's Impossible For Rosie Huntington-Whiteley To Look Bad
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is best known for her work as a Victoria's Secrets lingerie model but also as the star of two movies... And only two movies. Seriously, how is this girl so popular after only being in Transformers: Dark Of The Moon and Mad Max: Fury Road? Maybe it's because she's dating Jason Statham? Or maybe it's because this English bird is truly THAT hot.
8 This British Model Will Soon Be One Of The Biggest Names Around: Adwoa Aboah
The world is going nuts for Adwoa Aboah. The English model has one of the fastest-growing Insta accounts around and is in almost every clothing campaign from Kenzo to H&M and Calvin Klein. She's outspoken, bright, passionate, and also naturally gorgeous. Her unique look is what attracts people to her. Frankly, we're looking forward to seeing more of this Gurls Talk founder.
7 We'd Love To Show Dakota Blue Richards Our Golden Compass
Dakota Blue Richards has come a heck of a long way since her role in the so-so Golden Compass. English fans know her from the latter seasons of Skins (which you can see on Netflix), where she... well... developed... Not only did she become a stunner, but she also took on more complex roles in Endeavour and Beecham House. Her unique looks come from being a bit of a mix.
6 We'd Be Thrilled To Spend The End Of The World With Jessica Barden
Nerdy awkward girls for the win! Although Jessica (Jessy) Barden doesn't always play them, followers on her social media accounts know that this is a bit of an odd duck. And we love her for it. It makes her infinitely more attractive. Her acting ability doesn't hurt things either. She's best known for her roles in Tamara Drewe, Hanna, Far From The Madding Crowd, Penny Dreadful, The Lobster, and her starring role in the fantastic Netflix series, The End of the F***inng World.
5 Kaya Scodelario Makes Men Crawl
Kaya Scodelario may just be the best thing to come from Skins. She's, by far, one of the most engaging actors. But, more obviously, she's easily one of the most beautiful women around. She has such a naturally gorgeous and yet highly seductive look that makes us fall to our knees. Other than the famous English teen drama, we've seen her in The Maze Runner series, Pirates of the Caribbean 5, Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, and the break-out 2019 thriller Crawl.
4 Emily Ratajkowski... Yep... She's British
Basically nobody knows that Emily Ratajkowski was born in London. The actor/model is best known for her show-stopping presence in the "Blurred Lines" video, her role in Gone Girl, and how much she shows off her assets on social media. Seriously, this girl is aesthetically blessed... It's a little intimidating actually. Of course, The States have claimed her for their own given that fact that neither of her parents are English. This one's a fluke, people.
3 Agent Gemma Arterton... Code-Named: WOW!
Gemma has the face of the actor you know you recognize but can't remember the name of. So, let us properly introduce you. This was the absolutely, hilariously, and unrealistically gorgeous actor in movies like Quantum of Solace, Prince of Persia, Hansel and Gretl: Witch Hunters, Clash of the Titans, upcoming King's Man. We should all know her name and all be really thankful to Gravesend, Kent, England for her.
2 Suki Waterhouse Is A Triple Threat: Model, Actor, And Hottie
Get up. Go to your local mall. And see if you can find a photo of Suki Waterhouse in less than 10 minutes. Odds are, you can. After all, the English model has represented brands like Burberry, Redken, Swatch, H & M, Tommy Hilger, Sass & Bide, Pepe Jeans, and on and on and on... She's also been in a couple of movies such as Insurgent, The Bad Batch, and Pride & Prejudice and Zombies. Oh, and also... she's hot AF!
1 A Long Time Ago, In A Country Not THAT Far Away: Daisy Ridley
Daisy Ridley may be the next Natalie Portman. it's easy to compare the two since they have similar features and both have starred in Star Wars movies. Ridley was born in Westminster, London and has sent ripples across the planet. And surely this will continue after a few more character reveals in the upcoming Star Wars: Rise Of Skywalker.
