(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:

  1. District of Columbia
  2. Hawaii
  3. California
  4. Connecticut
  5. Florida
  6. New York
  7. Massachusetts
  8. New Jersey
  9. Nevada
  10. Rhode Island
  11. Utah
  12. Pennsylvania
  13. Illinois
  14. Texas
  15. Georgia
And, because we know you’re curious, the Dakotas ranked last, with North edging out South for the very last spot. (Read more beautiful stories.)
