Top 10 Hottest Blondes: Iconic


You don't have to be a gentleman to prefer these blondes! Welcome to WatchMojo.com, and today we’re counting down our picks for the top 10 hottest iconic blondes.

For this list, we've looked throughout the history of celebrity, and put together the prettiest line-up possible. There are no criteria limitations in terms of career path - as long as the lady has blonde hair, she's in with a chance! If there's a blonde you think should be on this list, but isn't there, be sure to check out our Top 10 Hottest Modern Blondes video!

#10: Heather Locklear

Our first foxy blonde was especially attractive in the '80s! Heather Locklear is probably most well known for playing the darling of "Dynasty", Sammy Jo between the years '81 and '89, while roles on "T. J. Hooker" and "Melrose Place" are also well worth remembering! With hair as radiant as her smile, which was as bright as her eyes, Locklear has to be one of the loveliest women ever to work in front of a camera!

#9: Christie Brinkley

We meander toward the worlds of modelling and magazine covers for our next blonde icon, and to one of the most successful supermodels ever seen! Christie Brinkley came to fame during an especially prolific three-year stint as the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition cover girl between '79 and '81... After that, all but everyone wanted her endorsement! Brinkley has boasted contracts with the likes of CoverGirl, Chanel, Revlon, Anheuser-Busch and Diet Coke (to name a very few) – and it's not difficult to see why she was wanted!

#8: Brigitte Bardot

We step a little further into history for our next hottie, to a name so well known that often the initials were all that was needed! Brigitte Bardot (or BB), was incredibly famous during the '50s and '60s especially, not least because she was incredibly attractive! A French mademoiselle made in heaven, she became known for her bright blondeness, which she carried off with a je ne sais quoi that set her apart! She was the pin-up girl of a generation!

#7: Grace Kelly

The Original 'IT Girl', Grace Kelly had Hollywood wrapped around her finger, before she went the way of royalty in April of 1956! A remarkably simple and seamless step up in the world, when Kelly married Prince Rainier III of Monaco, she took the title most appropriate for her, that of 'princess'! During her short and especially sweet acting career, Kelly had achieved icon status before she even entered into the highest of high societies! This blushing bride was an exceptionally beautiful blonde!

#6: Michelle Pfeiffer

Bringing it back to the '80s, Michelle Pfeiffer is a fantasy girl and then some! An A-Lister in her own right, she's a damn fine actress, and she's damn fine in general! Pfeiffer first brought her own brand of seductiveness to mainstream cinema in 1983, when she starred as Tony Montana's wife Elvira Hancock in "Scarface". In that movie her character was addicted to drugs, after that movie we all were addicted to her! It's just impossible to ever get enough!

#5: Jayne Mansfield

Often described as the 'Working Man's Monroe', in the '50s and '60s Jayne Mansfield became the blonde bombshell for the people! A major Broadway personality turned Hollywood film star turned Playboy Playmate, Mansfield built for herself a celebrity status that was almost unmatchable! Instantly recognizable because of her platinum blondes, she well and truly had the attitude to match her attractiveness! Mansfield was hot, and she knew she was hot... And that is HOT!

#4: Olivia Newton-John

A blonde good girl is one thing, but a blonde bad girl is something else... And Olivia Newton-John can play both just as perfectly! Starring as Sandy Olsson in the 1978 musical "Grease", she turned virginal innocence into full-on insatiability - and wrote her name into 'hottest women' countdowns for years to come! The one that we all wanted, Newton-John has most made a name for herself as a multiple Grammy Award-winning cross-genre musician... She's talented, and a total babe!

#3: Madonna

The 'Queen of Pop', Madonna is very nearly the best of blonde! The 'Material Girl' of many a man (or woman)'s dreams, her spot within celebrity folklore is undisputed! As she sported her famous fixed conical bra during the 1990 'Blonde Ambition' world tour, she cemented her superstar status even further than it had been previously! A trend-setting, fantasy-fuelling, pioneer within the public eye, Madonna's image was often changeable, always attractive!

#2: Farrah Fawcett

The hottest icons of all time often have a defining image associated with them, and that was certainly the case with Farrah Fawcett! The film and TV star rose to fame after a certain photo shoot, which produced a certain poster of Fawcett wearing a certain red swimsuit! A record-breaking, bedroom wall must-have, the picture prompted Fawcett's casting as Jill Munroe in the first season of "Charlie's Angels", and formed the basis of a brilliant, beautiful career from that point forward!

Before we unveil our top pick, here are a few honorable mentions.
- Goldie Hawn
- Veronica Lake
- Catherine Deneuve
- Claudia Schiffer

#1: Marilyn Monroe

An icon among icons, Marilyn Monroe is one of the most instantly recognizable, well-loved personalities of the twentieth century, and much of her reputation is a result of her hair color! She brought the blonde woman to the frontline of the famous, providing a blueprint for how best to convert seduction into success! Often copied but never bettered, gentlemen preferred her, we all liked her hot, diamonds were her best friend and our top spot could go to none other!
