    Classify and guess the Ethnicity.

    Paget to the Council.
    Now the Council's letters seem to imply (words quoted) that the King will keep no strangers save the Albanoys.

    Alpine, Tosk look. Could be Greek from Epirus (for obvious reasons).

    I see the pictures are not in Albania, but I find it hard to picture her anywhere else besides maybe Romania and quite a rare case in Southern Ukraine.

    Edit: If it wasn't for the very round features, I'd have included Montenegro or surrounding areas due to her eyes. But the lack of a longer face and nose and possibly height (she looks stocky) I refrained from including it as a possibility.

    When I saw the first photo her eyes reminded me of...Michelle Hunziker (!)
    I would have said Western Balkans generally but then I figured out who she was (congratulations!). Lips and smile are her grandmother's M.

    She looks Greek to me.

    She was so much more attractive with her natural hair coloring, and nose, for that matter, and without the teased, hair sprayed hair. I don't get it.


    Ivana Trump went for this hideous look too.


    Gosh, the more natural the better in my opinion, and nine times out of ten you look best when you stick close to your natural coloring.

    Sorry, rather off topic, but Arianna was the face that popped into my mind when I saw the OP. That's why I thought she might be Greek.

    If i am not wrong, the ending opulli in original Albanian form on the surnames or in the Greek form opoulus indicate persons with Arvanite ancestry. We have an Arvanite member here and he can clarify better this issue.

    Islanders, no. I think Anatolia. Here with a look that would be closer to how she is. He looks a little older, maybe because he is a more mature person than the age that corresponds to him, because of the result of my psycho-art.

    The only Greeks or should I say "Greeks" that resemble her are North-West Greeks and "Greeks" from regions where Arvanites settled, without excluding many Vlach groups in Epirus, Thessaly, and Aitolo-Akarnania.

    The real Greek look is far from this Alpine individual here as it's predominantly Mediterranean and have a longer and wider nose, way stronger jaws and way bigger eyes.

    But its understandable that outsiders have more exposure to Greeks than to Tosk Albanias (less than half of Albanians).

    Now Laberia surprise us and tell us she's German :P

    Gentlemen, it's easy to get fooled by hair color. Please always check the roots. :) Or, get a picture of the person as a teen or very young woman. It happens with Italian women too.

    Virna Lisa








    Then, obviously, some people look very particularly like their own specific ethnic group. However, other people sort of transcend certain artificial, political borders. People from neighboring populations have some overlap in terms of features.

    There are some Italian women who have that really broad faced look too, and with age it intensifies.

    Benedetta Mazza





    As for the girl, no, I don't think she looks like an islander or Anatolian Greek even with her natural dark brown or black hair. If Greek, I'd say mainland. Otherwise somewhere else in the Balkans. I do see some Slavic in her.

    I don't know why you're all fighting over her; she doesn't have a beautiful face or anything. Her features are way too unharmonious for that. I guess I'm missing the subplot.

    she is probably Aromanian,

    in some tribes they consider round fat cheeks,
    that make 2 'hole marks' when they laugh as top charming mark and beauty and health,
    they consider woman as old, when she looses this 'hole marks'
    some Aromani tribes have origin in Alps and transAlpine
    due to the areas were Roman legion fought.

    Why don't we just leave it at her being a typical Alpine and obviously she fits anywhere where the Alpine component is very common, be that in South Albania, North-West Greece, Italy, France, Bulgaria, Romania, South Germany, and so on.

    @Angela, what is Slavic about her?

    Yeah, just like Sandra Dee. :) She looks SO Albanian.




    Sandra Dee actually looks, and was, of Germanic descent: born Alexandra ZUCK.

    If you look at someone and say: oh, broad face, blonde hair (in this case, it's not even blonde, it's bleached), brown eyes, she must be from some specific country, you're often going to be wrong. You have to look at the features. The girl in the original post, wherever she comes from, does NOT look French or Italian, or even German to me, unless maybe somewhere in Eastern Germany. She'd have to be a complete outlier. She looks like a mix of "coarse Mediterranean", Alpine, and Slavic or Northeastern European. Conclusion: somewhere in the Balkans, more south than north Balkans.

    Ivana Trump looks like what she is: Slavic. Arianna Huffington looks like what she is: Greek. Benedetta Mazza is more of an outlier. She could be taken for southern German "maybe", but still looks Northern Italian to me: that's my face shape, my nose precisely, and the size, shape and set of my eyes. The cheekbones are higher, the chin less round, the mouth is very different, and the eyes are blue. Her hair might have been lighter when she was young than mine was: less red. We definitely share ancestral populations present on the Italian mainland, however.

    They all bleach their hair, btw. Pardon me, fellas, but men are so gullible, and not very observant, on the whole, of the details of people's faces.



    I see you don't like Virna Lisi (hair is also bleached). You have no taste, man.

    Real moral of the story? Never try to rationally discuss anything with SOME of the Albanian posters who frequent this site and sometimes seem intent only on making some point having to do with their agenda. When someone can downvote a picture of an actress, you're in really weird territory.

    Since when did this become an anti-Albanian thread again?

    I am Albanian just like many others here and none of us besides Fatherland said that blonde hair and hazel eyes means someone is Albanian. Personally to me blonde hair is more of a curse, it lacks volume (which I find beautiful) and its usually accompanied with almost non-existent eyebrows.

    The girl in OP is not even blonde, we can all see her original hair colour is most likely dark brown.

    Do I consider her to be looking Albanian? Yes, as well as Greek Epirote/Thessalian/Aetolian, or other Alpine Balkanic ethnic group.

    I am Albanian just like many others here and none of us besides Fatherland said that blonde hair and hazel eyes means someone is Albanian. Personally to me blonde hair is more of a curse, it lacks volume (which I find beautiful) and its usually accompanied with almost non-existent eyebrows.

    The girl in OP is not even blonde, we can all see her original hair colour is most likely dark brown.

    Do I consider her to be looking Albanian? Yes, as well as Greek Epirote/Thessalian/Aetolian, or other Alpine Balkanic ethnic group.
    Very sensible of you. We're generally in agreement.

    I have no problem with you Nik, or with Albanians in general, but the Albanians who usually do all the posting on this site, like Fatherland and Labreria and others, don't reflect well on the rest of you.

    If I offended you, I'm sorry.

    I'll amend my prior post to read "some" Albanians.

    What did I do??? You can clearly see I mentioned she's clearly more of a Tosk phenotype, rather than Gheg. Ghegs have sharper and more angular features.

    Pigmentation & haircolor has nothing to do with this discussion and she's obviously dyed blonde.

    I just said what I think. Freedom of speech.

    If your aim here is to ban me, then go ahead, I am done with this.
