thehill.com's 50 most beautiful 2010

Ah, yes. The Hill.com's annual 50 Most Beautiful People list, the totally serious, not-frivolous-at-all lowdown on what's really important in our nation's capital: who's hot. Check out two noteworthy names that made the Top 10:

7. Rep. Judy Chu: An adventure seeker

Age: 56
Hometown: Monterey Park, Calif.
Political party: Democratic
Relationship status: Married

"Even after having traveled to far-off places like Thailand's back hills, the Normandy beaches in France and Hawaiian volcanic craters, Rep. Judy Chu (D-Calif.) says the weekly five-hour plane trips from her Los Angeles-area district to Washington, D.C., have "taken some getting used to."

Chu made history last year as the first Chinese-American woman elected to Congress when she won the special election to replace Hilda Solis after Solis became Labor secretary. She has been on a plane a lot since then, but not to the travel destinations she and her husband, Mike Eng, prefer."
10. Anu Vakkalanka: Easy, breezy, beautiful

Age: 28
Hometown: Zoetmeer, Netherlands; and Chennai, India
Political party: "Independent, leaning on Democratic"
Relationship status: Married

"The Web address for Anu Vakkalanka's blog is perfect for her: IndianMakeupDiva.com. It's an outlet for Vakkalanka, a communications specialist for the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom, to dispense the kind of wisdom that got her onto this year's 50 Most Beautiful People list. 'I'm Indian; I came out of the womb wearing eyeliner,' she says."
