To outsiders, Fort Worth, Texas, is all about big hair and big accents. But we know better. With so many women nominated by their peers, narrowing the list down to 20 for reader voting was a 10-gallon-sized task. So hats off to each year's 10 finalists, crowned based on both inner and outer beauty, along with thousands of reader votes. The common thread? They’re all leaving Cowtown a more poised, happier, more compassionate and—naturally—more beautiful place each and every day.
