Judy Ann and Kristine, two of the 50 Most Beautiful Filipinas of All Time

Award-winning author Reynaldo Gamboa Alejandro has a coffee table book entitled "The Beautiful Filipina" featuring 50 of the most beautiful Filipina celebrities of all time.

It's an "all time" list because it includes mostly legendary actresses and a few stars representing the young generation including Judy Ann Santos and Kristine Hermosa. (Juday though is already in her 30s.)

"The Beautiful Filipina" is an offshoot of "Magandang Filipina: Beauty for Life" which was first produced and published in 2005.

Available in National Book Stores, the new volume focuses on the Filipina beauty across generations.

Here's the list of the most beautiful celebrities featured in the "Beautiful Filipina" coffee table book (sorted by first names):

Agot Isidro
Alona Alegre

Kristine, who is ony 25, is the youngest celebrity in the list.

Nora, Maricel and Lorna are recognized but Vilma Santos and Sharon Cuneta are not.

Judy Ann and Kristine made it but not Claudine Barretto, Bea Alonzo, Marian Rivera and Angel Locsin.

Also visibly missing is the very beautiful Ms. Gloria Romero.

Reynaldo Alejandro, the author, has already produced over 30 books and "Beautiful Filipina" is his 35th.

Some of his articles were published in The New York Times, Lifestyle Asia Magazine and many more.

"Beautiful Filipina" was photographed by well-renowned photographers in the country.

I'm not sure if there are still available copies, but last year, I've seen some at the National Book Stores.
