I won't dispute LUX. A date with any one of these ladies I'd be very happy. One thing. A big smile would have made them look better but Photographers can't get all to smile at the same time without performing tricks. So I'll let this one go.

You are right pushlover, that a smile would have done wonders. In my mind they are NOT models, but still good looking women.

I think the photographer who took the picture of the chicks in bikinis yesterday was a tad bit luckier....just my opinion.

Three of them look like they have come out of rehearsals at Simon Cabaret in Thailand, a place where the sun really shines....

Can someone more up-to-speed on Japanese pop culture tell me which is more prestigious: The Lux Shine Award; The Beauty Week Award; or, the Best Jeanist?

What a silly country -- that there are these kinds of "awards" virtually everyday, and that they get huge press coverage.

Well, my 'Poll' doesn't think they're all that attractive.

I move for a recount.

Seriously, how much do they each get to participate? A million yen? 2? 5?

Nao Matsushita is the hottest one.
