I don't see Kristen Stewart as a conventional beauty (some may disagree) but a beauty nonetheless:

Ricki Lake

Oh wow! I used to have *such* a crush on Ricki Lake when I was about 15... I have shed loads of video cassettes with clips of my favourite bits from her talk show, as well as (not sure I should be admitting to this?!) one of 'Serial Mom' where I sat in front of the tv with the remote and recorded all but only the scenes in which she appeared, as the movie itself was so rubbish, but I wanted to watch the bits with her over and over. Ahem... (This is a *long* time ago :oops: )

Anyhow, I love this thread! My two current favourite 'unconventionals' would be Pauley Perrette (Abby Sciuto from 'NCIS') and Tracey Emin (who I was also lucky enough to meet a couple of months back :clap: :clap: ):

Oh, and:

Drawing them really makes you appreciate the beautiful shadows and curves of their bodies and gestures. You stop thinking of them as people that you compare to an ideal and start appreciating the bodies for what they are. :)


I totally agree with this. I took life drawing classes for 6 months of last year, and they helped me far more than any of the body image work I'd struggled with with my various nurses and therapists.

Evan Rachel Wood - I don't see her as the type of girl that girls are dying to be and guys are gagging to be with. Her stunning beauty often goes unnoticed:

ADRIENNE ARMSTRONG :heart:

IMMEASURABLY beautiful, so full of life and happy :) and when you're married to that man why wouldn't you be! Haha. But she seriously inspires me so much towards recovery... one of the biggest things I struggle with is that I think that I will never find someone to love me if I am not one hundred percent perfect on the outside. But Adie, who is BEAUTIFUL but NOT a walking corpse or even slender, captured Billie Joe's heart at first sight (and obviously kept it!) while she was in the audience of one of Green Day's gigs many years ago... and they're so in love. It gives me so much hope that someday I will be as lucky as her :D

I know loads of people find Elly Jackson from La Roux a bit annoying, but I think she's stunning:

Just look at that hair!

I figured we needed more classic/exotic beauties, so I chose Rita Moreno. If you don't know who she is, she played Anita in West Side Story. Not too unconventional, but she's still gorgeous nontheless.

Josephine Baker... she was not only beautiful, but also intelligent, funny, and a very strong personality. Being a street child, working hard for a great career, but not only enertaining - she also fought for civil rights and against racism.

I just want to nominate this Czech Polish pop diva. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uN_eYHQ_Kc8

Singning at the age of 14 in that video, she's not "unusal", in fact she's kind of normal. And HAS braces!

But the Czechs and the Poles love her!
