You're probably right, but when I see that chin defect I always think Slavic hehe.

I can see a little bit what you are talking about but it is very subtle on her. I only really saw it once when she smiled. There was a fine crease in her chin near the bottom but the rest of the time it was hard to notice.

Yes, it is much more subtle in her than it is in me. Mine got more pronounced into adulthood.

I looked at your pictures and its difficult to detect on you as well.

It's just the lighting, mine is like one degree more pronounced than hers.

To be honest I have never noticed the chin 'feature' in Polish women, certainly not in any of my ex's. Maybe I wasn't paying enough attention,lol:) Please don't consider it a 'defect', it's not unattractive.

But again, I really dont think that she's Polish. She's a little too pale in skin tone, and for me the whole face shape is too narrow. Ah, having said that she is a model which might explain things....

What about Romanian? To me she didn't seem that pale. Her thick eyebrows reminds me of southern Europe for some reason. I am thinking Croatia or Romania.

Definately not Romanian. These days most people have a fairly varied gene pool, she may well be Croatian or even Slovenian. But trust me, definately not Romanian. Face is wrong shape, and her eyes would probably be a dark brown....

Hi!

What is this crap about! Such threads could have been written by the nazis, comparing and measuring noses, ears and all bs....

I happen to be Franco-Spanish and believe me there is NO female (or male) French physical characteristic. France is a multi ethnic nation (1/3 of the French have a foreign grandfather or grandmother) not only because of more recent immigration wawes but also from the very beginning. The French from various regions do not have same ethnic origin (with still some regional languages (not only mere dialects but also genuine languages that can be learnt at university) and therefore how can there be a typical French look??? For instance there is nothing in common as to their origins between for instance someone from Corsica (Italians), Brittany (Celts), Normandy (Viking), Alsace (Germanic) or the Alps, just to mention a few regions and as a result how in the world can they look alike? Only cheap Hollywood movies believe so ;). French population comes in all sizes and in all looks (blond, brown or red hair, blue, green, brown, grey..... eyes) like I would think most western societies.

As to l'Oréal et al. they have girls from all other the world to ad for them ;).

But trust me, definately not Romanian

I knew a girl from Romania with eyes the same shade as hers. In fact, she reminded me of her, somewhat. Not the same facial shape but the same coloring and eyebrows. So I think she could be Romanian. Romania has varied gene pool.

Take a chill pill dude! It's just people's opinions. I was just responding to the question:

Don't you think this model looks Polish?

To which I replied no. And that she looks more French. Doesn't make me a nazi. Relax buddy, it's all good.
PlasticPole 7 | 2,666

Haha, just found out who the model is. She's Taylor Hill. She's an American.

The topic of the thread is: The typical Polish look, or all Eastern Europeans. Which is why we're giving these critiques.
Oh and

Normandy (Viking),

Vikings came from Scandinavia. Normans came from Northern France. Just in case you were confused:P

We were trying to figure out where the model is from but now that we know, doesn't have much to do with the topic. I think it's funny we were all trying to figure it out and she's from America.
TommyG 2 | 368    
25 Aug 2012  #195
She may be American

I knew it! lol. Yeah its hard with American's. As apart from native-Americans (or mexicans as I like to call them :O) the caucasians are all Europeans. A very varied mix of Europeans...

Tommy!

The French population being the result of a huge melting pot from the very beginning, there canNOT be a "typical" French look. The image has been created by foreign (i.e. American) media and believe me, it does not correspond to reality. Unless they are from same family, the French look all different (some look Nordic, Germanic, Mediterranean, Continental, or a mixture of some or all, just to mention those of European origins). I'm French of Spanish origin and believe me, I have lived abroad (different countries, including the US) and just by looking at me, people don't guess where I'm from. When I see French people in Warsaw (since there are 700 French companies here, the French community is huge) unless I hear them speak French, I most often don't recognize them as being French so how the hell can you?????

I know that when someone in this forum has met ONE (max 3, let's be generous) person from Greece, Sweden, France, Paraguay, Singapore or the moon, we get a thread stating "THE Greeks, Swedes, French, Paraguayans or those from the moon" are ALL like this or like that. Excuse-me but such generalities are completely stupid. I myself have lived in many countries (including the US) and now am in Poland and I don't make generalities because generalities are ALWAYS stupid. As to France and the French, I have never read as so much MISinformation as in PF (Anglosaxon media are well known to spit on France and the French but trust me a lot of French media have similar views on Anglosaxons ;). As I'm intelligent (;)), wide travelled, and speak a few languages, I don't believe in such nationalistic (= fascist) bullsh....t. A nation is made of numerous individuals, each with his/her own individuality.

As to l'Oréal et al. not only they work with girls (and men) from the whole world but also they convey the image created by - foreign - media and nothing else.

Please travel, learn languages, meet people and you'll grow up and stop making (stupid) generalizations.

Have a nice weekend!

lol Tommy!

People from Normandy originally come from the North of Europe (via the Vikings) and nowadays most of them there (in Normandy) are blond with light blue eyes and very fair skinned (my father was from there and looked like that).

Well, keep generalizing re the Greeks, the Germans, the Japanese or the Papus or the Martians without me ;) but a last piece of advice, do travel!

Quite agree. Same as us British. My French roots date back to about 1675. I still look French! I have the same features as the lady I was describing as being French! My Polish roots date back to 1875, but my great-grandfather was blond haired and blue eyed, and bears no resemblance to me. You know nothing about me. Stop insulting me because I pointed out the difference between a Viking and a Norman, Grow up! Stop trolling me and get a life!

People from Normandy originally come from the North of Europe (via the Vikings)

It was Rollo who actually founded the Duchy of Normandy, I believe he was descended from (or was) a Viking/Norseman.
I think we underestimate the size and influence of the Viking 'empire' (for want of a better word).
The Normans had a fascinating history and obviously had a huge impact on Britain. Fantastic builders, I really like the Norman castles.

The sheer size,scope and influence of the Viking 'empire' (for want of a better word) was amazing.

I apologise unreservedly for my bad temper as of late. I know I have crossed the line quite a few times now.

But to clarify what I said about the lady looking French

for me she has more feautres of a French girl than Polish

it is because in my honest opinion she does. Maybe it is something to do with being an Arsenal fan and seeing a lot of French players come and go the vast majority of whom have dark hair and a certain look about them. Personally, I look a little bit like Robert Pires and Samir Nasri both of whom are French. I guess it's all in my genes:)

She's a little too pale in skin tone

There are plenty of Polish people with pale skin! Look at Izabella Miko, she's paler than me.

Please don't consider it a 'defect'

I was just calling it that because technically it is even though it seems more like just a trait.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cleft_chin

you look a bit like her:P

Really?! :O Wow, never thought that could be possible. That makes my day! She is considered one of the most beautiful women on earth I think.

I started out with the recessive gene (the jaw assymetry) and then the dominant gene developed into adulthood which presented the fissure. I didn't used to have a fissure at all until I was about 15 or 16 when I was finishing my growth. The model I mentioned had the recessive part but didn't have as much of the dominant part which is more environmenal.

Pani Polka, I hope that don't consider any of my posts as negative remarks about yourself. That was never my intention. I apologise if you found them offensive in any way.

darling, when was the last time you were in Poland? Poles, particularly those that are poor that can only afford crap food and those that are wealthy that eat too much food- fat fat fat..

Poles have become fat at an alarming rate.

And it is a big vodka, potato, coke gut.

I heard a report that Ukrainians and Russians are one of the blondest nations in Europe. They have far more blondes than Germany. The Germans would capture people from Eastern Europe if they were blonde, blue eyed, etc. My great grandma was Ukrainian and was very fair and had curly hair and high cheek bones. She could be a model. Polish people look simular but their cheek bones aren't as high. Eastern Europeans have more of a golden colour in their hair. Western Europeans I find have more of a grayish/platinum colour. Both are very beautiful.
