10 Most Beautiful Women 2017

DISCLAIMER: The information in this article was fact checked and accurate at press time, but 417 Magazine cannot guarantee its accuracy indefinitely.

There’s a whole lot more to beauty than what you see on the surface, and no one knows that better than the women featured in the following story. 

Every year we devote pages of our magazine to honor 10 of the most generous, caring, driven, smart and inspiring women in southwest Missouri. It all starts with nominations from you, then we narrow the pool to 20 finalists and you—our readers—vote and choose the final 10.

The winners are living, breathing examples of what beauty truly looks like, and these 10 are proof that it all starts with the heart. They’re outstanding parents, spouses, friends and daughters. They’re powerful business owners and outstanding employees. And more than anything else, they’re committed volunteers—each one has selected a charity, and the woman who receives the most votes during online voting and who is named on the most ticket sales to 417 Magazine's Indulge will have a portion of the proceeds donated to her charity. The winner will be announced at Indulge, where all 10 of these wonderful women will walk the runway.
