The most beautiful porn stars ever vibrate well beyond skin deep.

It is a universal truth according to The Big Book of Porn, that an effective porn star must be beautiful. The second most important truth is that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Hotness and beauty can be mutually exclusive qualities, and that’s almost never more so than in porn. Late 90’s star Melissa Hill, for instance, has admitted that her looks, while more than presentable, are not such that would get her into movies…but her enthusiasm and dexterity as an adult entertainer made her a major star in her era. But what about the women who have both? Those porn stars whose beauty doesn’t say “adult star” but have an actual genuine beauty like Audrey Hepburn? Or like the women who were featured in the Most Beautiful Asian Porn Stars list. While we understand that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, we at Filthy Gorgeous stand behind our picks for the most beautiful porn star women.

15. Stoya

North-Carolina-born Stoya is an all-natural beauty (rumor has it that she turned down breast implants offered by her frequent employer Digital Playground, not once but twice) who has high cheekbones and bee-stung lips; depending on the scene at hand, she can look creamy-fragile or tension-wire tough. A favorite of the hipster set, she’s been known to make the scenes in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg.

Stoya’s Best Work:

Stoya’s a Digital Playground contract girl, and there is a lot of porn hounds out there who insist that what Digital Playground does isn’t porn—too tame. Well, of course, it IS porn but it’s kinda samey. That said, 2008’s Stoya: Sexual Freak and 2009’s Stoya: Heat show the girl at her best within the parameters of the label.

Stoya’s Professional Status:

Still cranking them out for Digital Playground; the tech aficionado (she claims to have learned DOS around age 3) costars this month in Hacked. Who doesn’t love sexy nerds?

Stoya’s Inspirational Quote:

“When you ask a porn star about a big cock…a big cock is Lexington Steele and that shit is frightening and not going anywhere in the vicinity of my body.”

14. Faye Reagan

Freckle-flecked redhead Faye Reagan posed under the name “Jillian” for ads by erotically-emphatic clothing emporium American Apparel around the same time she started in the porn industry. She’s fresh-faced, sassy, and busty, with a gorgeous face that’s as all-American as apple pie. Connoisseurs also cite her delightfully puffy nipples. Ingres might have been impressed.

Faye’s Best Work:

A commenter at the Adult DVD Forum writes of Reagan’s work in 2008’s The Gauntlet 3: “I love Faye Reagan, that red hair, freckles, and nice tits. She takes multiple cream pies, with the only clean up between is from another girl.” So take that for what it’s worth. Faye herself has said “It’s the dirtiest movie I’ve done.”

Faye’s Professional Status:

Still working, although her last DVD release of a new scene was in August. A five-year run is almost a marathon for a female porn star these days, so stay tuned.

Faye’s Inspirational Quote:

“When I got into porn I’d only given two blowjobs, so I kind of jumped into it.”

15 Most Beautiful Porn Stars

13. Nautica Thorn

Hot enough for mainstream Hollywood, Nautica Thorn is Filthy Gorgeous’s 13th Most Beautiful Porn Star and has had a part as a lap dancer in the comedy hit Knocked Up. Half-Japanese, a quarter Puerto-Rican, and a quarter Hawaiian, the striking brunette Thorn is the kind of “exotic” mix that drives certain porn hounds wild. Depending on hair and makeup, she can look intimidatingly hard, but under the right lights her features have a milky suppleness that’s breathtaking.

Nautica Thorn’s Best Work:

2009’s Feeding Frenzy 10, in which she looks fab in white hot pants and fishnets, and displays a generosity of spirit rarely seen in multi-dude oral sex exploits.

Nautica Thorn’s Professional Status:

Active. Frequently featured in “All Asian” titles, quelle surprise.

Nautica Thorn’s Inspirational Quote:

“I like working with Playboy. They have really good food.”

12. Jamie Summers

Non-Bionic-Woman Jamie Summers is a stunning example of what beauty means. The second Vivid contract girl, 80s star Summers, whose stage name was a play on that of the character played by Lindsay Wagner on The Bionic Woman, had a fresh-faced appeal that was a marked contrast to that of naughty-cheerleader Ginger Lynn, the first Vivid Girl. Never prone to extremes as a performer, she rode to fame on the back of a “Brat” persona that made her an icon of her era.

Jamie Summers’ Best Work:

Hard to say, but she is featured in Andrew Blake’s groundbreaking Night Trips.

Jamie Summers’ Professional Status:

Retired and not even active on the periphery of the biz as far as we can see.

Jamie Summers’ Inspirational Quote:

Unfortunately, there are no quotes available for Jamie Summers.

11. Tia Bella

Mamma mia! Although she’s not even really Italian, Tia Bella is, (whatever her ethnicity) is one beautiful lover. Under normal circumstances, her high-caliber silicone-grown rack would disqualify her in a contest of natural beauties, but what can we say? Those lips, those eyes. Of Greek and Spanish background, she augmented her beauty with a cool sense of sexual savoir-faire.

Tia Bella’s Best Work:

She shakes it but good in 1999’s Taxi Dancer, also featuring the intriguing Asia Carrera. As befits a late ‘90s adult actress, she’s got oodles of compilations discs out and each of them features…well, her. So there you go.

Tia Bella’s Professional Status:

Retired, although the Internet seems to have her confused with Christine Smith, Playboy’s Miss December of 2005, because Bella’s real name is Christina Smith. Interesting but not our problem.

Tia Bella’s Inspirational Quote:

Unfortunately, there are no quotes available for Tia Bella.

10. Sasha Grey

The notorious Sasha Grey has an angelic face with silent movie star and/or Goth girl stylings, depending on how you look at it. (Check those eyebrows.) Slender and limber, she struck some in the porn industry as an ice queen, but that was part of her appeal. Also noteworthy in her lack of reluctance to go farther out sexually than a lot of starlets.

Sasha Grey’s Best Work:

She gives a fine performance in Steven Soderbergh’s The Girlfriend Experience. But not a terribly lubricious one. Her three-way with veteran stud Tom Byron and perky Sunny Lane in 2009’s King of Coochie 4 (hey, we don’t title these things) is a relatively mild but still steamy indicator of her erotic performance capabilities. She was also a Penthouse Pet of the Month in July of 2007.

Sasha Grey’s Professional Status:

After Girlfriend Experience and a stint playing “herself” on HBO’s Entourage, Grey has officially escaped porn and is pursuing other interests, as they say, only for real. A musician and DJ, she plays in the band aTelecine and has just published her first novel, The Juliette Society.

Sasha Grey’s Inspirational Quote:

“I definitely consider what I do to be performance art.”

9. Valentina Nappi

Mamma mia, this one actually IS Italian; the bellisima Valentina Nappi is the Filthy Gorgeous’s 9th Most Beautiful Porn Star. A sultry brunette with an all-natural body, and a gorgeous face that’s apparently been improved by a nose job, the Italian newbie has a sway that doesn’t quit, and her sultriness is merely enhanced by the fact that she has curves and rolls where other girls have bony angles.

Valentina Nappi’s Best Work:

As she’s still a rookie, it could be yet to come, but a girl-girl-boy scene with Dana Vespoli and Ramon Nomar in which a dildoed Dana and anagrammatic Nomar double-team Valentina is quite the eye opener. She is Penthouse’s Pet of the Month for November 2013.

Valentina Nappi’s Professional Status:

Just getting started!

Valentina Nappi’s Inspirational Quote:

Well, her English isn’t so great yet, and she’s rumored to have made some unpleasant pronouncements in her native Italian, so we’ll just quote a grateful fan on the Adult DVD Talk Forum: “She takes it in the ass like a champ.”

8. Hyapatia Lee

Proud Native American Hyapatia Lee is easily categorized as beautiful. The raven-haired beauty Hyapatia Lee is a quarter Cherokee, making her the only documented Native American in porn during her active years, which were the Golden ‘80s. One of her most remarked-upon porn tricks was her ability to lactate slightly during sex. While not a performer who tested boundaries, her staggering good looks and intelligent, self-assured manner made her one of the great teases in adult. Fun fact: She is featured in the now-contraband September 1984 issue of Penthouse, the infamous Miss America issue in which the Pet of the Month was an underage Traci Lords.

Hyapatia Lee’s Best Work:

Again, this is one of those cases in which if you like Hyapatia, you’ll like what she does. A compilation disc called Hyapatia Lee and Friends seems a smart one-stop-shopping move.

Hyapatia Lee’s Professional Status:

Retired from porn, but according to Wikipedia, she’s working in musical theater in Indiana and recently appeared in an episode of the uber-trashy reality show Gigolos under her real name.

Hyapatia Lee’s Inspirational Quote:

“I do not recommend working with one’s husband in any business.”

7. Annette Haven

The refined beauty Annette Haven is the Filthy Gorgeous’s 7th Most Beautiful Porn Star. “Annette Haven has a terrific body,” legendary American director Brian De Palma has said, and who are we to argue. But she has more, too—the looks and bearing of an Upper East Side socialite who can be perfectly prim and proper on a visit to the Frick Collection and end the evening shagging like a mink near the hot tub at Plato’s Retreat. Because the 70’s porn actress was active when Plato’s Retreat, the notorious swinger’s club, was open. You see. De Palma actually considered casting her in his 1984 Body Double. Melanie Griffith eventually got the part, but her schtick about what her porn star character won’t do (“There are some things I’d like to get straight right up front, so there are no misunderstandings later on: I do not do animal acts, I do not do S and M or any variations of that particular bent, no water sports either; I will not shave my pussy, no fist-fucking, and absolutely no coming in my face”) is apparently a direct quote from Annette.

Annette Haven’s Best Work:

The retro porn label Alpha Blue has several comps demonstrating what Haven WOULD do (including vintage loops), and of course Barbara Broadcast is a Golden Age porn classic. See if you can spot her in Blake Edwards’ Ten!

Annette Haven’s Professional Status:

Retired, inducted into both the AVN and XRCO Halls of Fame.

Annette Haven’s Inspirational Quote:

See above.

6. Mia Malkova

While her name speaks of Eastern Europe, when Mia Malkova opens her mouth, out comes Madison, Wisconsin. Looking like a cross between young Cameron Diaz and Rachel McAdams, rookie Mia is one of those porn stars you look at and say “THAT’S a porn star?” Corn silk-blue eyes, cheerleader-blonde hair, perky breasts and a bubble butt to inspire several hip-hop mix tapes, she’s a newbie who gives a guy hope for the future of porn.

Mia Malkova’s Best Work:

Mia, her self-titled Elegant Angel feature, is an apt introduction.

Mia Malkova’s Professional Status:

She’s only just begun.

Mia Malkova’s Inspirational Quote:

“Every scene I do now has either someone else’s finger up my ass or my own.”

5. Sunny Leone

Indian goddess Sunny Leone is the Filthy Gorgeous’s 5th Most Beautiful Porn Star. Sunny was actually born in Canada, giving her something in common with Nobel laureate Alice Munro. (Bet you didn’t see THAT reference coming.) A warm-looking brown eyed beauty, the breast augmentation she had midway through her porn career (which stems from 2001 until a few years ago) actually did help make her beauty more…ravishing. She’s got the kind of eyes you can get lost in, and a dazzling smile.

Sunny Leone’s Best Work:

On the one hand, 2012’s Goddess features her doing all sorts of nasty things she had never undertaken in porn, including anal; on the other hand, it’s one of the most dully-conceived and worst-shot films of a latter-day porn star. Your call. Her work in 2009’s Undress Me is pretty hot. Sunny was Penthouse’s Pet of the Month in March of 2001, and 2003 Pet of the Year.

Sunny Leone’s Professional Status:

Born of Punjabi parents, Sunny went to India for a reality series there called Bigg Boss, then made a Bollywood movie called—no really—Jism 2. (Don’t get too excited, the title is Hindi for “Body.” “Body 2,” to be precise.) Apparently she still resides in India, has been exploring her spirituality there, and her porn disposition is unclear.

Sunny Leone’s Inspirational Quote:

“In any religion, it doesn’t want you to shoot adult material.”

4. Nikki Dial

Was she the Sandra Bullock of porn, or the Anne Hathaway? Whichever mainstream star she reminds you of, Nikki Dial definitely deserving of the number 4 spot on this list. It’s a shame about the stuck-in-the-80s hairstyles that the radiantly appealing, wholesome-but-sultry Nikki Dial was often saddled with, but ask any guy who came of age in the 1990’s who the fantasy figure of choice was and Ms. Dial’s is the name you’ll hear 8 times out of ten and with good reason.

Nikki Dial’s Best Work:

Nikki’s exertions tended to be pretty vanilla even by vanilla standards, but she looks great with P.J. Sparxx in 1994’s Starlet and gets surprisingly loose and nasty in Sex and Sex 2 from 1993, although good luck finding un-truncated versions of those movies on disc or the Internet.

Nikki Dial’s Professional Status:

Long retired. In 1996, your humble correspondent saw Nikki, who had stopped shooting features, perform at a strip club outside Columbus, Ohio. At the picture signing afterwards, she confided that she was leaving the biz to go to school, get a degree, and then work with the deaf. To which your humble correspondent replied, “What? Huh?” It didn’t work.

Nikki Dial’s Inspirational Quote:

Unfortunately, there are no quotes available for Nikki Dial.

3. Marilyn Chambers

The Ivory Snow Girl turned Behind The Green Door trapeze artist Marilyn Chambers is the Filthy Gorgeous’s 3rd Most Beautiful Porn Star. It sounds like an urban legend today, but it’s true: young Marilyn Chambers was the model holding the baby on an Ivory Snow box in the late 1960’s. The aspiring actress then got a bit role in the Barbra Streisand movie The Owl And The Pussycat. Her resemblance to then-ingénue and undeniable beauty Cybill Shepherd made San Francisco porn moguls, The Mitchell Brothers, want her for their 1972 orgy picture, Behind The Green Door. According to Chambers, she didn’t know it was a porn at the audition. You’d never know to watch the result. She went on to dally in the mainstream and made an ‘80s return to porn, and then another comeback in her cougar years, a little less fresh-faced.

Marilyn Chambers’ Best Work:

Like Barbara Broadcast to a certain extent, and a film from our upcoming number two beauty, Green Door is one of those porn classics that’s so classic even non-porn people have an excuse to look at it. Her efforts at taming John Holmes in 1980’s Insatiable are also impressive, provided you can tolerate looking at John Holmes.

Marilyn Chambers’ Professional Status:

Angel, we hope. Marilyn died in 2009 of a cerebral hemorrhage.

Marilyn Chambers’ Inspirational Quote:

“I’ve never to this day seen one of her hardcore movies, but I saw a softcore movie she did and she was incredibly sweet and unspoiled. When I met her she was a lot harder than I had hoped. She had plucked eyebrows and her hair was very pre-Farrah Fawcett. She had been doing Las Vegas. Chuck Traynor, her husband/manager, was not my favorite kind of guy.” —David Cronenberg, who directed Chambers in 1985’s Rabid.”

2. Constance Money

She really IS so money, baby. Constance Money, was a porn star for only a brief while. With long, straight hair, perfect facial features, and statuesque figure, Constance Money was a classic beauty. Exactly the sort director Radley Metzger wanted for his 1975 porn magnum opus The Opening of Misty Beethoven. Metzger, working here under the name Henry Paris, didn’t want jaded porn veterans for his adult gloss on Pygmalion, and luckily for Metzger, Money, a one-time Mills College student, had only done a loop or two when he tapped her for this immortal specimen of porno chic.

Constance Money’s Best Work:

There’s so little of it! Misty, and to a lesser extent, Barbara Broadcast and Maraschino Cherry, both of which feature Money scenes originally shot for Misty!

Constance Money’s Professional Status:

According to a making-of doc on the terrific Blu-ray of Misty Beethoven, Money “disappeared completely from public view” after posing for a Playboy pictorial. See what happens when you pose for Playboy?

Constance Money’s Inspirational Quote:

Unfortunately, there are no quotes available for Constance Money.

1. Brigitte Lahaie

Don’t hate her for being beautiful…or French. The Gallic siren Brigitte Lahaie is Filthy Gorgeous Media’s 1st Most Beautiful Porn Star.
Naturally ample-bosomed, peaches and cream in complexion, a gorgeous mouth and alert, bright eyes…it is our considered opinion that Brigitte Lahaie, born in 1955, was and is the most beautiful actress to work in porn. Too bad it isn’t American porn. A major French porn star from 1976 to 1980, she transitioned to softcore and modeling in the ‘80s.

Brigitte Lahaie’s Best Work:

If you have a foreign-region friendly DVD player, just go out and get her sex-teacher comedy Les petites écolières, her final adult film and one of her most alluring and amusing. Be advised, though, that Lahaie’s male partners often look like runners-up in some kind of Eurovision’s Skeeviest Looking Men Contest, complete with ballpoint prison tattoos and stuff. For non-hardcore jollies, see her in the Jean Rollin horror movie The Grapes of Death, in which she enacts the most hilarious “Moi? A zombie? But how can I be with this untainted body?” routine in the history of genre movies.

Brigitte Lahaie’s Professional Status:

No longer doing hardcore films, she hosts a radio show on which she provides sex advice.

Brigitte Lahaie’s Inspirational Quote:

Unfortunately, there are no quotes available for Brigitte Lahaie.
