A user named @_MedGold on X (Twitter) has come up with a fascinating approach to categorizing unique features across a variety of women by dividing them into four "categories" of attractiveness: gorgeous, beautiful, hot, and pretty.

Let's dive into what each category means and how you can determine which one you're in.


According to men, the "gorgeous" category is defined by a "stunning element" of uniqueness and a "mysterious allure" that's hard to ignore. It's all about a "striking" presence and unconventional beauty. Celebrities like Angelina Jolie and Adriana Lima exemplify this category, with their distinctive features that set them apart from the crowd. This category celebrates women who captivate with their unique beauty, leaving an unforgettable impression.

Other examples: Monica Bellucci, Margot Robbie, Irina Shayk

Are You Gorgeous?

Gorgeousness is marked by a stunning uniqueness and a mysterious allure that captivates and intrigues. If people comment on your distinctive features, or if you possess an unconventional beauty that doesn’t fit the traditional mold, you might resonate with the gorgeous category.


"Beautiful" refers to a more traditional aesthetic, marked by facial symmetry and a serene, classic look without as much seductiveness. Blake Lively and Natalie Portman were cited as quintessential examples by men due to their timeless appeal. This category is a nod to the enduring elegance that has been celebrated through the ages, emphasizing grace and balanced features.

Other examples: Anne Hathaway, Gal Gadot, Ana de Armas

Are You Beautiful?

Beauty in this sense is characterized by a traditional, symmetrical aesthetic that radiates a calm and serene grace. If you’ve been told your beauty is classic, where balance and proportion play key roles, and your appearance exudes an elegant and timeless appeal without relying on overt sexuality, you might find yourself in the beautiful category.


The "hot" category is synonymous with sexuality and seduction, characterized by features that exude a powerful sexual allure, such as full lips and hypnotic eyes. Men put Madison Beer, Shakira, and Dua Lipa in this category, calling them "bold" and "captivating."

Other examples: Becky G, Mila Kunis, Megan Fox

Are You Hot?

Being hot is all about exuding sexuality and confidence, where your presence is bold and seductive. If you possess features such as full lips, and hypnotic eyes, and generally exude a magnetic, sexual allure that seems to draw others to you effortlessly, you might align with the hot category.


Defined by a strong element of sweetness and a radiant, friendly smile, the "pretty" category brings to mind the approachable girl next door. Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Watson are perfect examples, according to men, with their sweet demeanor and bright smiles. This category is all about warmth, friendliness, and the kind of beauty that feels both familiar and comforting.

Other examples: Neha Sharma, Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez

Are You Pretty?

Pretty is encapsulated by a radiant, friendly smile and an approachable charm that makes people feel at ease and drawn to you. If you’ve been described as the girl next door, with a sweet demeanor and a beauty that is relatable and comforting, you likely resonate with the pretty category.

Overlapping Categories

Men also agreed that the categories often overlap. Many women embody traits from more than one classification, blending them into a unique combination. Some examples include:

Shakira: Shakira straddles the "beautiful" and "hot" categories, merging traditional beauty with a palpable sexuality.

Camila Cabello: Cabello is in the unique intersection of "hot" and "pretty," embodying the seductive allure of the hot category while maintaining the sweet, approachable charm of the pretty classification.

Frida Pinto: Pinto, with her striking features and elegant demeanor, beautifully bridges the "gorgeous" and "beautiful" categories.

Jessica Alba: Alba is a blend of "pretty" and "beautiful," combining the approachable, girl-next-door vibe with a classical beauty.

Embracing Your Category...or Categories

It's important to remember that these categories are not exclusive or limiting. Many women will find themselves resonating with more than one category, embodying traits from different classifications that make them uniquely attractive. Your beauty can be a blend, reflecting various aspects of these categories, and it's this unique combination that makes you distinctly you.
