- Halle Berry. Beautiful, talented and a truly remarkable woman, Halle Berry is not only one of the hottest black actresses in the world, she's also a former fashion model and winner of the Miss USA World 1986. Considering she's a former beauty queen, we had to include her in our list of the 10 hottest black actresses. Her roles in the "X-Men" movies make it cool to be a nerdy comic fan all over again.
- Yaya DaCosta. A mixture of Brazilian, Cherokee, Irish and West African heritage went into creating this gorgeous beauty. Just one look at her and you're bound to say "yaya" to anything she wants (especially since she can say it in English, Portuguese, Spanish, French or even Japanese). Yaya is not only one of the hottest black actresses around, she's also one of the brainiest.
- Meagan Good. Meagan Monique Good got her start working as an extra on shows like "Doogie Howser, M.D." She gained recognition for her role as Cisely Baptiste in the critically-acclaimed film "Eve's Bayou," and was nominated for several awards.
