There are plenty of gorgeous ladyboys around the world. However, some ladyboys’ beauty is more celebrated with the help of the media and the modeling industry.
This list wasn’t created to make it seem like they’re better or more beautiful than those who are not on the list. It was only made to inform and introduce regular readers to some of the most beautiful ladyboy models in the entertainment world.
When the talks of beautiful ladyboys are present, Thailand will never be left unmentioned. It’s not only known to be the land of smiles. It’s also famous for producing world-class ladyboy models and beauty queens.
Nong Poy, also known as Treechada Petcharat, rose to fame when she won the first edition of Miss International Queen. The world was left in awe after witnessing how ultra-feminine her features are. From her soft face to her slender and elegant physique, one’s going to have a truly hard time believing that she’s a ladyboy.

Winning the coveted title opened many opportunities for her. Apart from being one of the most successful ladyboy models in Asia, she also starred in blockbuster hits as a leading lady.
Her filmography includes the titles The Cave, Witch Doctor, Insomnia Lover, From Vegas to Macau II, The White Storm, Spicy Beauty Queen of Bangkok 2, With Love, and more. This list doesn’t even include her TV appearances.
As a model, she has already endorsed big companies such as Pantene, Furefoo, G-Net Mobile Phone, and more.
Yoshi Rinrada, also known as Rinrada Thurapan, is a 23-year old ladyboy model who’s also from Thailand. Much like Nong Poy, what made her famous was not only her title as a beauty queen, she became popular because of her feminine beauty as well.

However, Yoshi’s fame is more celebrated in the social media world as she has an active YouTube channel. She has appeared in various music videos and TV shows. One of her biggest modeling moments is when she was chosen to be an endorser for Pherone. Pherone is one of the most popular male-to-female hormonal medication brands being sold in Thailand.
Just like Thailand, the Philippines is also known as a country that houses very beautiful ladyboys. However, unlike in Thailand, the Filipino ladyboy models are more popular internationally rather than in their own country.
Although Geena Rocero is technically American, her ethnicity is Filipino and she grew up in the Philippines. Geena Rocero’s career in the modeling industry is a bit more fashion-oriented, rather than for overall entertainment as she has worked as a runway model.
