Perfect Imperfections: Beauty in the Unique

Updated on April 11, 2014

It's easy to take notice of the different and unusual features that belong to the faces of many famous people. I find beauty in all faces, especially if there is something unique or different about a person's face that sets them apart from others. In this hub, I will post some of my favorite looks from ladies with unconventional beauty.

I don't see a flaw. I see natural beauty.
I don't see a flaw. I see natural beauty.

German Schnoz

Diane Kruger is a leading lady in Hollywood, appearing in National Treasure with Nicholas Cage, starred in Tarantino's epic movie Inglorious Basterds, and played Helen of Troy in Troy. Before becoming an actress she was a successful model in Germany. What makes her even more beautiful is her imperfect nase. I didn't misspell it, that's how you spell nose in German. Who knew when reading this hub you would actually learn something!

Back to point. This woman made it in Hollywood and in the modeling business with her prominent nose and for good reason. In my opinion I think it gives her face character. She doesn't look like the cookie cutter, plain pretty girls that we see in Hollywood. She never needs to nip or tuck her face.

She had Bette Davis Eyes

Who was the first Diva of the big screen? Bette Davis of course. Diva because she earned it, not because she demanded it. She could portray emotions like no other actress before her. She didn't look for parts that were necessarily "pretty." Instead she looked for strong characters, and delved into her role like a true thespian. She went beyond acting. She lived and breathed her roles, and was never afraid of backing down.

Bette was never portrayed as being beautiful, but that didn't matter as long as she got to do what she wanted; Make films. Her beautiful, strangely large eyes captivated audiences and praise from her fans. There never was another Bette Davis, and there will never be another Bette Davis.

Brazilian Brows Wow

There was a time when shaving your eyebrows thin and painting them on was considered beautiful. Thin eyebrows were coveted and many actress of old Hollywood donned them, including Bette Davis.

I'm personally a fan of thicker eyebrows, and yes, maybe it's because I'm the proud owner of thick dark eyebrows that need grooming every once in a while. Camilla Belle owns her eyebrows. There is nothing more beautiful than a woman accepting and enhancing her natural uniqueness. Rather than thinning them down, Camilla leaves her eyebrows alone, and makes a fashion statement everywhere she goes. Camilla Belle is a young fashionista who will be remembered in the future for her style, class, and glamour as much as for her beautiful Brazilian brows.

Pretty Little Imperfect Liar

Troian Bellisario plays Spencer Hastings in Pretty Little Liars, the daughter of successful lawyers, and younger sister to her "perfect" older sister, Melissa. Troian's features are unique and beautiful and caught my attention when I first started watching the show.

All the girls in the show have some unique features that define them. Aria is the bold girl with bold eyebrows to match and large innocent eyes. Hanna is the popular girl with blonde locks and expensive taste in clothes. Emily is the beautiful athlete who finds it difficult to come to terms with her bisexuality because of her conservative parents. While the three girls are pretty, Troian brings something more than just "pretty." Her long neck, and slightly aquiline nose give her an air of poise and sophistication that is rare in Hollywood.

Troian's look is captivating and I could see her getting cast in a movie about the the Roman or Greek period, and even the 1800's/early 1900s because she looks like something from the past. The other three girls have a more modern look, but Troian's is one that transcends time.


Streep Sticks to Natural

As there will never be another Bette Davis, there will never be another Meryl Streep. She can pretty much do anything from comedy, musicals to dramas and still carry a scene even with the most "beautiful" actresses.

Meryl Streep has something that many women of any age in Hollywood don't have. Grace. She was a beautiful young woman when she started acting, and today she still is a beautiful woman with a career than spans over 30 years, numerous awards under her belt, and a handsome family. She has accepted her flaws, rejecting cosmetic surgery to fix her deviated septum, and avoided everything from botox, lip injections, cheek fillers and other kitchen utensils used to plump up celebrities into freakish shrunken heads.

Liz Lemon a.k.a Tina Fey said it best in the 30 Rock episode "Black Light Attack." When speaking to Jenna about aging she gives us this enlightening conversation. "You can try to fight getting older. You can be like Madonna and cling to youth with your Gollum arms, or you can be like Meryl Streep and embrace your age with elegance." Well said Lemon. Well said.

How do you feel about your perfect imperfections?

      Hey Billy! Right you are. Beauty is indefinable. I don't think it's right to say "this is what beauty is. Period." Besides, the world would be so boring if everyone looked "perfect." It's the small nuances and differences that make this world interesting. Thanks for reading and commenting!
