(AP Photo/Dan Steinberg) (Newser) – The prettiest state in the US isn’t really a state: It’s the District of Columbia. In a nod to Virginia's Miss America win, the Daily Beast decided to rank all 50 states, plus the District, based both on how many famously gorgeous people they have—the number of beauty pageant winners, fashion models and People’s “Sexiest Man Alive” honorees that were born there—and overall health and fitness data. Interesting coincidence: Every state in the top 10 voted Obama in 2008. Here’s the top 15: District of Columbia Hawaii California Connecticut Florida New York Massachusetts New Jersey Nevada Rhode Island Utah Pennsylvania Illinois Texas Georgia And, because we know you’re curious, the Dakotas ranked last, with North edging out South for the very last spot.
