Who Are Your Favorite Bodybuilders?

One Bodybuilder that I admire is Laura Creavelle. She has a great amount of class and overall beauty that has not been matched. She proved that women can be beautiful, feminine, competitive and of course, muscular! When I purchased my first muscle book as a child, she was the first thing that really stood out to me then and to this day, I still think highly of her.
