The Hill‘s “50 Most Beautiful People” is in search of new beauties for its 2017 list.

If the past few years is any indication, this year’s list should be a colorful array of thin, fat, ugly, pretty and everything in between. In other words, muffin tops are not automatically disqualifying.

They’ll accept self-nominations from any ego-ridden DCer who wants to be on the list.

This year is the 14th year of Washington’s infamous summer beauty contest. For some reason, the current powers that be usually dump the most attractive people toward the bottom of the list and save questionable pageant choices for the Top 10.

To be sure, there are always surprises, pleasant and otherwise. Like this guy who clearly went to Drybar for the Southern Comfort do before picture day. Or this woman, who resembles Topanga Lawrence, the fictional character from the hit TV show Boy Meets World.

“There’s good news for those who possess not only beauty, but also a healthy ego: Yes, you’re allowed to nominate yourself,” wrote “In The Know” gossip writer Judy Kurtz and 50MB’s gatekeeper Ashley Perks.

All egos can submit their submissions at

You have until May 26 to declare yourself beautiful.

The list typically hits newsstands in August.

Here are 6 offerings from The Daily Caller‘s keenest observers free of charge:

Ivanka Trump, the second first lady, Barron Trump, unenthused presidential son, Hope Hicks, Trump’s press aide, and Matt Labash, The Weekly Standard writer. Two women who obviously deserve spots on the list: Omarosa Manigault, director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison, and ex-fashion model Melania Trump, the actual first lady who has posed in the nude.
