    I always thought she was most beautiful during the time of Bobby's shooting.

    There was something rather regal about Victoria Principle I'll even say that she was the 80s answer to Audrey Hepburn of the 50s/60s

    They were all fine until they started getting those dumb haircuts ca. 1983-84 (Some of the Knots Landing women were guilty of this, too). Thank heavens Charlene Tilton was able to dodge those shears.

    I remember back in the mid to late 80s, inside a NZ medical health magazine, was an article on what made up the most attractive face shape, using measurements all around the face, from the brow to the nose, etc. This was illustrated by a colour close up pic of Victoria, it didn’t even mention her name, she had such a high recognisability quotant. The caption underneath simply read “is this the perfect face?” That says it all really. Even scientists agree she has ideal bone structure to make her visually appealing to most people.

    To be honest with you all, Victoria Principal wasn't just the prettiest in her final season. She was gorgeous throughout her run on Dallas.

    A lot of people seem to forget that when she left the show the ratings for Dallas began there spiral descent downwards.

    The reason's for that are twofold, one - that ridiculous dream season explanation for Bobby Ewing's return from the dead, & two - the also ridiculous explanation that Pam survived the car accident with the Oil Tanker!

    Don't get me wrong, her last season is classic Dallas & she certainly is a very beautiful woman. She got out of Dallas at the right time. I will always love her, she left Dallas on principle (pun intended!) before the quality of the writing really started to spiral out of control. :(

    Lol I never forget the ratings plummeted after VP’s exit. My dallas exit was the same episode as hers ;-) and yes absolutely she was stunning throughout the series except perhaps her poodle perm moment

    I didn't mind the perm but I preferred her with straight hair.

    She was one of the most beautiful women on the planet back when she was younger.

    I will always love her. :)

    I thought Victoria probably looked her best around the time this photo was taken (1980), although she was stunning throught her tenure on "Dallas." I thought she was breathtaking here.

    My viewer ship ended (for the most part) when she left, too. I heard she was heavily into melons her last season.......
