You can’t have it all, they say. It’s either beauty or brains. What if you’re told you can choose just one? Is it because the two are a rare blend? Maybe they can’t really go together. Well, maybe not.

It’s a common knowledge that some think smart girls can’t be charming enough and those that are pretty are intellectually inferior. Don’t freak out, though. There’s a roster of real stunners far from being empty heads and with overwhelmingly impressive feats in life. 

Brooke Shields

Once you start modeling at 11 months old, there’s a good chance you’ll be up for something fabulous. What actually happened to Brooke! She was one hot babe in the 80’s. Yes, she also rocked the fashion world being the ambassador for Calvin Klein and cover girl for Vogue. But, wait, there’s more! Brooke holds a degree in French Lit from Princeton University. 

Christy Turlington

This 90’s supermodel is still an eye-catcher. Why not?  It’s plain to see that Christy’s a drop dead gorgeous with diplomas in Public Health, Comparative Religion and Eastern Philosophy. She’s also a doting mother of two. Beat that. 

Lily Cole

An angel in disguise! Lily can be mistaken as one. She’s a looker who has graced the runway for Rimmel, Christian Lacroix, Chanel, John Galliano and a lot more. With first class honors from Cambridge University, anyone can comment that this girl is downright lucky. Giving a nod to that?


Don’t hate her ‘cause she’s beautiful… and sharp-witted! Known as David Bowie’s widow, Iman is not your typical lovely. She is able to converse in five different languages. With literacy in political science from the University of Nairobi, this Somali native can confidently blow your mind.

Laura Shields

Born and raised in United Kingdom, Laura had socko moments in beauty pageants. She bagged the Miss UK International (2004) and Miss Europe (2005) titles. At 15, she had already signed a contract under Elite Model Management. What if you find out now that she’s a chemical engineer? (Insert smiley here.)

Cameron Russell

And (almost) the whole world agreed when this runway intelligentsia member said in her TEDxMIdAtlantic speech, “Looks aren’t everything.” Get that from someone who isn’t just a stunning face able to stir the crowd. Cameron has been tagged as one who has “won the genetic lottery.” With a stint in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, the brilliant looker can boast of her education background from the esteemed Columbia University. 

So, next time around, look beyond the externals. Accept that beauty and brains exist. Cheers!
