Hey, I find Stam sexy (because of the same androgyny that makes her repellant to you), but I'd never call her pretty or beautiful! I guess I feel more justified in my Shalom dislike since hearing my friend's comments. She can look quite beautiful in professional photos, but don't these candids kind of shatter that illusion?


style.com, gettyimages.com

It's not just her jaw that's offkilter. Her eyes look odd and her features occupy a tiny space in the center of her face. She looks best when these flaws are downplayed by flattering angles and lighting. But to be one of the most facially beautiful models of all time requires more consistency.

I'm preparing myself for an assault of bad Stam photos...

Well to be fair, those snaps look fairly recent, and Shalom is 32/33-years-old now.

Here are some runway snaps taken during her prime:

No illusion there. Her jaw has always been too broad and heavy, but her overall is/(was) still very uniquely beautiful despite.

I only like the first and third photos.

Whaaa?! No Aurelie? No Bridget? Not even a little?? I know you wouldn't include Solange (I would, but only for her ads and eds), but.....

I like your list but I'd remove: Anja, Kirsty, and Helena I'm sort of on the fence about because she varies so much (altho her best in Wicked Games is probably enough to put her up there despite the fact that it wasn't modeling).

I'd also add:

*Pania Rose -- and it's not just her body, either, because her face in peak form is one of the prettiest among all models.
*Sydonie Herrera (no icy icon available?!)
*Eugenia Silva -- maybe, I have the feeling I'd be a lot more into her if she was of this [current] generation and I'd seen more of her work at her peak.

Oh, and I'd obviously remove a certain T.T., too. ::yawns:: Talk about one bad apple sticking out like a sore thumb........ :p A car mechanic, she is.

And don't forget Heather Stewart-Whyte! Also, I'm not sure if I like Pania's face as much as you do. There's nothing glaringly wrong with it, but it lacks something....

Ohh yessssssssssss! Thank you marqueemoon! I knew I was forgetting a big one. Such a shame she either didn't do more work, or was before my time (not that she's old, but in modeling years, she's ancient)...or maybe both.

I know what you mean, she's a bit dull, but she's still very pretty. I this pic:



^ Pania Rose thread #201

Esp. the dark smoky makeup and her hair.

I didn't know her face could look so good! She took me by surprise here. Ordinarily she's a little too sweetfaced and unassuming-like for me.

Aurelie: Occasional moments of striking, bewitching beauty, but her wonky aspect ratio and vague skeleton resemblance are major minuses.
Bridget: One broad broad. No.
Pania: Plainly pretty face atop a DY-NO-MITE body.
Sydonie: I wouldn't mind including her, but she just doesn't excite me all that much.
Eugenia: Uninteresting, albeit objectively beautiful.
HSW: Too Sears catalogue-y for my personal taste, tho' objectively she is one of the most beautiful models ever.

And just to restate the obvious, my list is SUBJECTIVE!
