    1-3 will take me some time to figure out, but my approximate guess for 4 is Palestinian

    You haven’t offended anyone.

    Honestly, you two are like fric and frac. Like twins you almost have your own incomprehensible language and code words.

    No guesses on any of the other three?

    I don't have to remind posters you're not supposed to try to do reverse image searches, right. That's unethical, yes?

    1. Caucasus with perhaps Slavic and Baltic. She has to me a broadly Eastern Europe with some Russia and North Sea look.
    2. Ugh. It is so hard to tell for a number of reasons. The photo is cropped right in, black and white and she is heavily made-up. The eyebrows especially are hard to look away from. ;) That being said, I feel like I need a “gimme” on this to even be guessing with all the handicaps but, being game, how about Greek or Northern Italian? She reminds me of Sophia Loren - a bit. But, again. That could all be smoke and mirrors.
    3. German
    4. Broadly European DNA mix. In this photo, She looks like she had nose job, though.

    1 - English (young Queen)
    2 - Austria/Brennero (Could be)
    3 - Spaniard (why not)
    4 - Madeira/Portugal (“Friend” look like)
    5 - Lithuania (I think)
    6 - Poland (Maybe)
    7 - Scottish (Deep Blue Eyes and Dark Hair) or maybe Italian.

    5) This picture is really too washed out to tell much. Broadly NW European, perhaps Celtic as in old middle Europe Kelts or otherwise if not that then Siberian “red” but I’ll go with Middle Europe as her skin looks more milky than it does ruddy. But, who knows from this pic? And her bone structure also cannot be discerned from this, but looks (maybe) softer/rounder as in Alpine. Too much snow.


    6) Eastern European. But then, she kind of also looks like Adele. So…. I have no idea. Maybe Baltic, North Sea with British?







    7) She honestly looks like many Anglo-Irish-French-Scots + other random admixture women in Canada.

    5. is Italian
    Besides, her blue eyes probably are not natural because of the darker outer ridge (its more likely contact lenses)

    Very ambiguous- women are always harder to guess than men. I will say the last one has a pseudo-oriental appearance (Ive seen those features among an Ashkenazi woman, and not anywhere else), however she could pass as being Irish, Northern Italian or Polish very easily. I would have to guess shes from somewhere in East-Central Europe, though. Id also guess the first one as being Italian. No idea for the rest.

    Dark limbal rings are quite natural, and, in fact, they're more common in light eyes.

    "
    • They tend to be more prominent in lighter-coloured eyes than very dark eyes, although even dark brown eyes may have limbal rings that, while not so noticeable, still subtly enhance attractiveness. In rare cases, some darker-eyed people may have blue limbal rings."


    I'm one of those brown eyed people who does have a limbal ring, or whose limbal ring is obvious, and it's dark blue. I'm weird: my skin color (Celtic rim fair) doesn't go with my hair and eyes (dark brown) either. Recombination can produce odd results.

    A famous person with that odd coloring and the blue limbal ring, although hers aren't as prominent:


    They tend to disappear by the time you get to that woman's age, but not always. Genetically, some people retain them into middle age. Mine haven't disappeared, for example.

    They're considered very attractive in both sexes, partly, they think, because it makes the white of the eye look whiter. Women try to get the same effect by putting eye liner on the inner rim of the bottom lid, although it washes out very quickly.

    The perceived attractiveness is why colored iris lenses almost always have them. A friend of mine got them (They look fake as hell, like almost all of them, but, of course, I said they looked great.) and she said you have to specifically ask to have them rimless, but that might not be completely accurate.

    I see what you mean, but still eye colour in No 5 does not look very natural to me... If hair is dark, eyes would be typically green, not blue:

    It doesn't work that way, Dagne. In certain areas dark-haired, blue-eyed people are common, as in Ireland, for example. They're not uncommon among us, too. Of course, there's not only one shade of blue eyes. They can be blue-grey, blue-green, etc.





    Even African Americans can wind up with blue eyes. That's a "mug shot", from a criminal arrest, so they're not contacts. :)



    After all, blue eyes were first paired with dark hair in Europe. Only later did the blonde-blue eyed combination appear.

    I'm going to wait just a little bit, but then I'll reveal.

    The thread is getting repeatedly buried, so I'll reveal.

    They're all 100% Italian, and not at all outliers.

    Sorry if you feel tricked, but I thought it would be fun and informative. :)

    Number 1 is Aurora Cortopassi, an occasional chef on Giallo Zafferano youtube videos. Surname is northwest Tuscan, and she definitely looks like a certain type of Tuscan. She's the same type, I think, as the "Lady with an Ermine". There are, of course, much darker Tuscans, like Andrea Bocelli, as just one example.

    [IMG][/IMG]

    Number 2 is, believe it or not, an actress of Calabrian ancestry. Hair color makes a tremendous difference in terms of people's perceptions. Her name is Gianna Maria Canale. She's obviously prettier, but I think the bone structure has similarities to Lady Gaga, Stephanie Germanotta.




    The third picture is of Costanza Calabrese, an Italian news person.

    The fourth picture is of Alicia Vitarelli, and Italian-American newscaster. The surname looks like Bari in Apulia. The nose may very well have been altered as it looks too small for her face. Unfortunately, that's an American thing.

    The fifth, sixth and seventh pictures are all of women in my birth area: eastern Liguria, Lunigiana, i.e. La Spezia. So, Dagne, you were right: she's Italian. She's a local food personality, and so far as I know, the hair is dyed, but the eyes are real. That's what happens when you try to get rid of the grey in dark brown hair: it can turn out black. :)

    Some more girls in our area with what foreigners consider unusual phenotypes for Italians, but which, while not the most common, are a very significant part of variation in certain areas.

    A better picture of Costanza Calabrese:


    She reminds me of Emma Marrone. Is she Sicilian? I thought Calabrese, but maybe not.



    The hair is obviously fake. She's not trying to fool anyone.

    No 3 Costanza Calabrese and No 5 look very similar to me. What is the name of No5?

    It's just a common Italian face shape. I have it too, with a less pointy chin, and a common set of features. They're sort of like a chiaroscuro set. :)

    Antonella Clerici, the judge of Prova del Cuoco, has them too. The hair color, clearly, is fake, and the mouth is odd, being very big, with big teeth, as usually shows up in pictures of her. (Clerici is a name primarily from Lombardia, but almost exclusively "northern" at any rate.)




    Sorry, I can't give out number 5's name, or that of number six. They don't have any "public" persona at all, so I don't think it would be right. Number 7 is, as I said, a local "food" person, so I guess that would be ok. Her name is Daniela Vettori, and is behind my favorite food blog, "Le Cinque Erbe". Her surname is very local, but is also very common in the Veneto and northern Toscana.

    I'm not Sikeliot, Dagne. You can trust what I post. There's just a lot of variation in Italy.

    Giuliano Razzano: Italian Olympic skier. Parmigiano DOC as we say, and as he always broadcast. No, he's not common at all in certain parts of Italy. In others, not out of the ordinary. My paternal grandfather looked like him.

    It snows almost eight months a year there.





    Another blue-eyed person with a dark limbal ring. :) He was light brown haired in adulthood, though, although I'm sure like quite a few of my relatives he was platinum haired as a child.

    I won't leave this up long, but this is one of my young cousins. It's a similar type, especially head shape and face shape, nose shape, eyes etc. Randazzo is next to him.

    This is Aurora Cortopassi "in the round". Other than her mouth and the fact she's a little too thin (vegetarianism can do that), I love everything about her, even her voice. If I were still a religious woman I'd make a novena that my son brought home a girl like that. :)

    These two guys look very similar to me... The one I posted is a Russian which one time presented Russia on Eurovision.

    And regarding a dark limbal ring - yes I do believe you, I even got one too ;) - when I looked myself in the eye. Mine are greyish blue so perhaps not that much noticeable...
    The thing that appeared a bit unnatural was a combination of skin, hair and eye colours. But it is so easy to change that (make up for skin and hair... )

    Um...he looks pretty Slavic to me, and also quite narrow faced. We don't have much, if any, Slavic influence in Italy. I'd go more for Mattias Schweigofer , a more Germanic influence, at least in this picture, although not in others. My young cousin is much better looking, of course. :) I'm not so familiar with German and Scandinavian people, so I couldn't find a better example. Maybe something Danish, given the Lombards?


    As for dark hair and blue eyes, it depends on the country and area. We have a fair number of people with that phenotype in Italy. After all, about 40% of the people in the Veneto have blue eyes, and about 30% in other northern areas. It pales in comparison to the Irish, however, who in adulthood are predominately brown haired, even dark brown haired, and overwhelmingly have light, mostly blue eyes.

    Our own Paul Ryan, a politician, and much too serious to dye his hair! :)


    Teddy Kennedy: the fat face swallows up the eyes, but they were blue:


    He looked like his mother: Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy


    Brandon Beemer:


    Some Italian versions:
    Raoul Bova: still my absolute favorite even after I found out he has feet of clay.



    Giulio Berruti: his mad Italian female fans are called Berrutine! He's almost too pretty.


    David Giuntoli:


    Buffon-not handsome, but...


    Also not handsome...Frank Sinatra: ol' blue eyes himself.

    What do you think of this guy, Dagne? What serendipity, eh? This youtube video with an American girl and her German boyfriend just came over my feed. :)
