Best lens with which to shoot beautiful women?


I asked this on the Nikon forum but would be interested in hearing Canon shooters' responses, too.

A guy I work with in the media department got into a discussion with me today about photography and asked flat out, what's the single best Nikon lens to use in photographing beautiful women?

I don't do portraits, especially not glamour or whatever he was suggesting, and I honestly had no idea how to respond. But then I thought, good question. Why don't I know the answer?

So for those of you who shoot women, what's the single best Nikon lens to capture their beauty? (or ugliness).

And why?

I do not think there is a right answer, only what is right and what has worked best for you.

I expect things to be totally subjective, so please make your answer about yourself and your subjects, not about me or my possible needs.
