Nipple on the foot (unidentified 22-year-old woman - Brazil)

The bizarre paper describing the case reads: "A 22-year-old woman sought medical care for a lesion in the plantar region of her left foot, a well-formed nipple surrounded by areola and hair. Microscopic examination of the dermis showed hair follicles, eccrine glands, and sebaceous glands. Fat tissue was noted at the base of the lesion. Clinical and histopathologic findings were consistent with the diagnosis of supernumerary breast tissue, also known as pseudomamma. To our knowledge, this is the first report of supernumerary breast tissue on the foot."

Top Most Beautiful Eyes

Finding the world’s most beautiful eyes was challenging to say the least. With a list that started at 50 pairs of gorgeous eyes and then had to be reduced to 10, you can imagine the hesitation to exclude some of the many beautiful women that were considered. Some that missed breaking the top ten were Megan Fox, Raquel Welch and, believe it or not, Marie Osmond who was in the initial 50.

One of the most difficult tasks of this hunt for the most beautiful eyes was finding a large head shot. Most photos pictured the entire female’s body. And when you look at the list of women below you’ll see why - most certainly had a beautiful body to match their incredible eyes. So we did the best we could tried to show photography that concentrated on the face and the eyes.

And there you have it, ten of the most beautiful eyes in the world. As with most lists, even top ten lists, there is some subjectivity, so please include any beauties you may think were missed.
