she looks a little like Taylor Swift

stlucas October 21, 2015 at 5:24 am

I would’ve guessed she was almost 100% danish. Her eyes and bonestructure are very nordic-looking.

J420 October 26, 2015 at 11:27 pm

I can’t see the Nordic. She looks exactly what she is mostly, which is Northern German. Germans look more like the Dutch than any generic Scandinavian.

J420 October 26, 2015 at 11:32 pm

I have lived in Denmark for 2 years then and Norway for 4 years and I can easily distinguish a Nordic person and a typical German, and she doesn’t even look like a Dane at all.

Please elaborate.

WTF June 2, 2014 at 10:27 am

baybee June 24, 2014 at 12:04 am

So does Jennifer Lawrence she got some small eyes for a white girl!

andrew June 24, 2014 at 6:02 am

Northern europeans use to have small eyes, dont u know?

Betta Franka September 27, 2014 at 11:45 am

Tons of white women have small eyes.

lelo4 September 20, 2016 at 8:02 pm

lol at ‘asian eyes’. it’s an indigenous european trait, most europeans have eyes like hers. big round almond-shaped eyes is a middle eastern/neolithic trait and in europe is common only in peripheral countries like malta, sicily, southern italy, greek islands etc and also among Jews.

andrew September 21, 2016 at 5:26 am

“Peripheral countries” LOL. No place for Spain and Portugal in your agenda? They’re often considered as such by Bruxelles bureaucrats (expecially Portugal). Sicily, southern italy, greek islands are not even countries, and this Mainland/Greek Islands difference exists only in your mind-


lelo4 September 22, 2016 at 8:38 pm

should have said ‘regions’, and I meant it genetically.

Betta Franka September 27, 2014 at 11:44 am

She doesn’t have “kinda asian eyes”, what people call “asian eyes” it’s eyes with epicanthic folds and she doesn’t have them, she’s simply got small eyes.

xoxo October 21, 2015 at 5:21 am

She does have Asian eyes. I would have guessed she was 1/4 Asian. Her bone structure looks Asian as well.

J420 October 21, 2015 at 11:27 pm

Ignore xoxo… This person is mentally challenged and deranged and thinks every exotic looking White Woman is mixed. He/She is probably a Black person with a lot of issues regarding race.

andrew October 22, 2015 at 2:22 am

she doesn’t even remotely looks Asian. She looks like what she is: Northern European. She also would be seens as a giant in Asia.

andrew October 22, 2015 at 2:25 am

*she also would be seen

J420 October 22, 2015 at 7:24 am

@Andrew I totally agree, she does not look Asian at all. This ‘xoxo’ person is secretly an inbred closet racist with a tiny limited brain and has been going around leaving retarded comments calling good looking White people ‘mixed’ all the time. This pig-ignorant twat loves to stereotype what Caucasians should or should not look like and calls them mixed if they don’t look typically Nordic. Everyone knows Whites are the most diverse and colorful looking race, as they can have all different eye/hair colors and facial features.

chris91 November 22, 2015 at 3:31 am

I think you confuse hooded eyelids a la Helen Hunt with epicanthic folds aka ‘asian eyes’. Can look similar especially if the person squints and smiles a lot with the eyes.
