a portrait of beautiful woman

Hi everyone, it is day seven of my 30 Days Beauty Blogger Challenge and today we are going to talk about the most unusual, atypical, and off-stream beauty icons. These ladies are far from the typical Hollywood standards of beauty and that is why we all love them. They are the most talented and extraordinary artists with the most interesting appearance and images.

Tilda Swinton

Tilda Swinton is an incredibly famous British actress, model, and artist. You may remember her as angel Gabriel in 'Constantine' and Jadis in 'The Chronicles of Narnia'. Tilda has very unique facial features and she doesn't look like other European and Hollywood actresses. But isn't her androgyny appearance pleading? Tilda's big green eyes, blonde hair, and unusual bone structure make her look just like a sculpture. I can't take my eyes off her in the movies, there is something very 'off-stream', but classic about the way she acts and moves.

This Icelandic singer doesn't need any special representation. Björk is just as talented and unusual as her songs and videos and that is the reason why she is so loved. Every time I feel a little sad or depressed I like listening to her songs and interviews, everything this woman does is overfilled with charisma, energy, and extraordinarily. If you aren't familiar with the oeuvre of this iconic artist I strongly recommend you to check it right away!

Sigourney Weaver

Sigourney is a very attractive woman and gifted actress. The reason why I want to mention her in the list of unconventional beauties lies in the images and characters she portrays in the movies. In my all-time favorite horror movie 'Alien', Sigourney plays the main protagonist, Lieutenant Ellen Ripley: a young, feminine but strong character with a very complicated fate.

If the Alien franchise was filmed today, I'm afraid Ripley would be awfully sexualized and played by some young actress with a plastic appearance. Sigourney looks absolutely organic and natural on-screen, she doesn't need to look 'sexy' to make viewers fall in love with Ripley.

Of course, these are just three beautiful and talented unconventionally beautiful ladies, but the world is filled with people like this. Let me know in the comments who you think are the most interesting icons that inspire you? Keep up with my 30 Days Blogger Challenge and please feel free to join in and improve your blogging skills as well. Talk to you tomorrow, hugs and kisses!

Lots of love,
