The Celtic Look
It's hard to pin point what this look is, but many people from British Isles share certain features which give them a unique look. If you look at some of the top models who are descended from wales/scotland/ireland you can see some similarities.

Quite piecing eyes - very light skin - often dark hair - small jawline compared to other models - small mouth with narrow lips. Of course there is variation within this general look, but it's easier to have a general thread. Take a look ~~~

Coco Rocha from Canada (you can see her roots and eyebrows in these polaroids give away her natural hair colour - and freckles ^^)

[coacd]

Laragh McCann from The Republic of Ireland

[coacd]

Meagan McNierney from USA (to me this is a very Irish look)

Actually I have to correct you on one small point (being the daughter of a racial geneticist ) Celts tend to have much larger jaws since the Celtic/British race is basically a diluted Germanic one and with strong Nordic elements. So the jaw tends to be stronger. It is the Slavic girls that tend to have slightly underdeveloped/shallow mandibles and maxilla bones (the bones of the jaw). A typical look in the British Isles (not that there's really such a thing anymore since it's such a melting pot country now) would be a strong jaw, a sharp nose, medium to close-set eyes and the fair skin you were talking about. Again, small mouths are usually a more Slavic trait.

Sorry to be so picky.

Coco Rocha is a very good example though, despite the small jaw (which is actually an orthdontic deformity [not in a bad way] as opposed to a racial trait) Again, Lily Cole's colouring is very very Celtic but the face shape, set of the eyes and jaw bone are the opposite.

No problem.

You're right, Kate Moss and Aggy definitely aren't typical of that look.
