Hard to say... I'm thinking maybe French.

Her chin is more Northern European.

I am going to say possibility English or from another Germanic country

@ angella

you play dirty

her hairs comes from antique,
clearly Caucasian Mediterrenean,
her hairs exclude North Europe
she has hairs simmilar mine.

her chin seems like Germanic,
she also could be from Dinaric area, but I rather say N West Europe, since no mark/lace

her tall neck is mark of ancient Greek sculpture,

the formation of eyes and nose sends me also to Greece and East Balkans.
even Cyprus and Asia minor.


so with such a combination what origin can someone give

the only place that Med meats North,
is France, Italy , Swiss,
hm Austria-Slovenia, even Croatia.
the ultimate North is Bavaria,
and East is Greece Romania and Turkey

Hmmm, slightly Mediterranean(ish) with a Northern European look. My bet is French or then Southern German/Austrian/Swiss (the southernmost Germanic people). But of course this can all be wrong. I can be awful at this, but I don't really see very striking and immediately noticeable differences among most Europeans (in face, not minor things like color of hair or eye), except for clear outliers in the "borders" of the continent, like Saami, Southern Portuguese or Islander Greek.

@Adeo, You can tell you've been in England for a bit. You can find a lot of her features in English women or more generally Northwestern European women..

@Yetos,

What's the point of giving easy ones? That's too big an area Yetos. You have to narrow it done. I think the jaw is northern too. Lot's of northerners also have that hair.

The original pictures are of Lyda Borelli, an Italian silent film actress from Liguria.

They obviously loved her: they even did sculptures of her.
http://www.italianways.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/IW_MuseoPietroCanonica_04.jpg

Another very famous Italian beauty from a somewhat overlapping period was Lina Cavalieri, an operatic soprano from central Italy, Lazio. She was considered the most beautiful woman in the world, the reincarnation of Venus. I think they have some features in common, but Cavalieri looks more "Mediterranean" to me, although perhaps largely because of her slightly darker coloring. I think she's more beautiful, personally.

Ah, Lina Cavalieri was a marvel, definitely one of the most harmonious and classic faces of the last century. Totally "unfaked" beauty. (Venomous) gossip was that she was no talented enough to get such a high following and so many good contracts in the Opera Houses, all of them owned more to her very particular "attractions" especially to male opera fans. In any case, I think there was quite a bit of sexism in that widespread opinion: beautiful Opera singers have always been accused of being on the stage only due to their beauty or, even worse, to "special favors" - only to be widely acknowledged as great singers decades later. :-(

Lina Cavalieri, by the way, was interpreted by none else but Gina Lollobrigida in an interesting movie about her life and career, La Donna più Bella del Mondo. Gina Lollobrigida actually refused to be dubbed by a real opera singer and decided to sing the arias herself (mixed results, but claps for the daring effort).

She has that "woman i saw in my dreams" kind of beauty...it's beyind something sexual or arousing. I've had numerous dreams of being with someone I had a crush on in real life or a ficitcious beauty only to have the bubble burst and end up back in reality in my messy bedroom thinking well, she's with a better man...this is the reality I've been handed....I should've stayed dreaming.

Beautiful as Gina Lollobrigida was, it's a "harder" type of beauty, less attractive to me. There was a luminous quality to Cavalieri's skin, a softness to her face, an air of pensive, perhaps slightly melancholy, innocence mixed with sensuality which I suppose belongs to an earlier time. If I were a man, this is the kind of beauty that would haunt me.

They loved that look in her era: masses of thick, wavy hair, flawless, dewy, luminous skin, widely spaced eyes, long, graceful neck,
straight, strong nose, usually small, rose-bud mouth, slender yet womanly body.

Evelyn Nesbitt was the American version. I don't think she was as beautiful as Lina Cavalieri, but she was also an earlier version of a beautiful "poster girl", and men killed and were killed for her.

Funny as a man I find nesbit the most attractive, though I dont think any of them are bomb shells. Their features are almost too perfect that they look kind of boring. The most attractive women in my eyes dont have perfect features but some how it works together like magic. I also like kind of misty eyed girls. Cindy crawford back in the day was the bomb.

Tastes differ; it's what makes the world go round.

I always thought Cindy Crawford had a nice, kind of athletic yet curvy body, but her face always looked very masculine to me, sort of tranny-ish. Of course, you could, imo, say that about most models in the last thirty to forty years; they all look like boys or young men. That's what the mostly gay fashion designers like...sort of unisex looking people. To each their own.

It's gotten worse as she's gotten older. She looks to me now like you could mix her up with Bruce Jenner. :)

I think that, though not in general, a female face that is not so "womanly", not so delicate and sweet, can became strikingly beautiful and powerful (feminine power, in the "femme fatale" style) with the right harmony of features. That's the case, I think, of Brazilian actress Maria Fernanda Cândido, who I think has that kind of "imposing" beauty that Sophia Loren also had:

But, of course, the kind of divine beauty that really leaves me in awe as if I just saw some supernatural entity, an angel, is more like this one, the astoundingly beautiful (for some time, her history is a bit complicated) Brazilian Ana Paula Arósio (I remember when she made her first TV appearance in a series, when I was a little kid, even women gathered around the TV to comment about her beauty):

I know what you mean about a great smile. My mom used to love Magnum PI. I have to admit I watched it occasionally too, even though the acting was horrible. Part of Tom Selleck's appeal, in addition to over all gorgeousness, was that spectacular smile. We actually saw him in Santa Barbara in the 90s. He was even more handsome in person than on screen, if that's possible, much thinner looking too. The film cameras must put on at least ten pounds.

@Srdceleva,
Your grandmother is really beautiful.

@Ygorcs,
It's not that I think women with stronger facial bone structure aren't beautiful, because I do, or that it makes them look necessarily more "masculine". I think maybe it's the expression in the eyes and face more than anything that turns me off about some women. Also, when women get too thin and the face gets gaunt, I don't like the way they look.

Take Jessica Chastain. She's not a "classic" beauty, but I love the way she looks. Part of that is also no doubt because I think her personality shines through.
https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/c/cc/Jessica_Chastain_Cannes_2%2C_2012.jpg/170px-Jessica_Chastain_Cannes_2%2C_2012.jpg

Or Carrie Moss...I adore her look. She seems far more Southern European to me than of British descent, btw.

To go back to my topic, maybe it's the difference between someone like Moncia Bellucci and someone like Manuela Arcuri or Caterina Murino (Sardinian).

The features are rather common for northwestern Italy, although the hair and eyes are sometimes darker.

I said upthread that her features could also be found in France...here is a Miss France from around the same era...
http://a398.idata.over-blog.com/2/41/34/44/Rep-7/agnes-1920.jpg

The only modern Italian actress who can, imo, give off that "antique" quality is Giovanna Mezzogiorno, who carries it off very well in her period films and even in "real" life.
http://www.entertainmentwallpaper.com/images/desktops/movie/love_in_the_time_of_cholera05.jpg

I don't know what it is...a certain pensiveness, touch of melancholy, self possession?

I completely agree. Besides the obvious things, she has extraordinary facial bone structure...she'll be gorgeous until she's eighty...she was the "femme fatale" in Casino Royale, btw...
