    20 Most Beautiful Inside & Out

    In July we asked you to nominate the celebs you feel are the most beautiful, inside and out. We asked you to consider more than just outward appearance when casting your nominations, career choices, role model status, charity involvement and more was supposed to come into your decision. The fifty celebs we received the most nominations for competed in a poll that ran through August and September. Voting has now closed and your top twenty are below. Various members of the Portrait staff highlight the celebs selected and look at just why you chose them, including comments submitted by readers during the nominations phase.

    #1 David Archuleta
    The best thing you can do to set yourself apart is just be yourself.

    Spend a few minutes with a David Archuleta fan, more commonly known as “Archies”, and you’ll know why they find him attractive. While his youthful looks and charming smile help, David’s kind and gentle demeanor are what really put on at the top of this list. David also has a great fashion sense. He knows how to dress for an occasion, whether that’s jeans or a sharp tux. If that’s not enough to capture your heart, just take a look into those deep brown eyes. As Archie fans know, David’s eyes will make you melt.

    David’s true beauty though lies in his heart. It’s easy to see why David Archuleta ended up both the most nominated and highest vote earner in our poll. When it comes to beauty on the inside, David’s beats the rest. He always takes time for his fans, spending hours at meet & greets just to make sure they know how special they are. That’s impressive in these days of egotistical celebrities.

    David doesn’t stop there. He’s trying to make the world a better place as well. David was one of the first celebrities to volunteer after Haiti’s earthquake and he’s continued to lend both a financial and physical hand. At home, David has more causes he’s not only proud to support but proud to work with as well. He’s an active supporter of the cause, “Do Something” an organization that encourages teenagers to make a change in the world by themselves.

    Why You Chose Him
    Nikki: David is only nineteen years old, but has already achieved so much in his life. He has used his fame and success to inspire others. He is involved with many philanthropic activities, such as the Do Something organization and “Somos el Mundo” (the Spanish version of “We are the World”), a charity benefit event. David has shown himself to be a truly humble and giving person, who appreciates everything that everyone has to offer and truly appreciates his fans and supporters. He has also written a memoir recently, through which his beautiful soul was able to shine through, and he was able to inspire so many people with his story. His humble, down to earth, and caring attitude is extremely difficult to find nowadays, making him a perfect role model for all people, both young and “not-so-young”.

He was 11 years old when he sang for contestants from the first season of American Idol, wowing the likes of Kelly Clarkson with his voice in 2002. The following year, he made it onto the second season of Star Search, but experienced health problems during this time. A few years later in 2007, now 16 years old, David auditioned for American Idol. From the success of American Idol, David has become a star in his own right, and is now a successful artists with his own album. This year, David has opened for big name stars such as McFly and Demi Lovato while they were on tour.

    What’s Next: David is currently touring around the States on his Christmas tour, but after that he has no precise concrete plans.

    Editor’s note: Maybe someone should write to Portrait Magazine to correct that David does have concrete plans – he is releasing a memoir early next year and is writing songs for his second pop album!
