That picture of her is an injustice to her. She’s one of the most beautiful women in the world, there are lots of her gorgeous pictures on the Web

She is such a pretty girl, i wish they picked a prettier picture of her

Alex234 October 25, 2015 at 12:11 pm

Not a very flattering picture of her and she’s quite pretty.

correction; her eyes are grey/green and her hair is dark brown (brunette) (dyed blonde)

Typical Norwegian look, I should know as Norway is my native country

Typical German look, I should know as Germany is my native country …


(This was not meant too serious, but perhaps we both are right …)

She looks very German to me

Lotus January 11, 2013 at 8:46 pm

She doesn’t look Norwegian at all

nnnnn January 18, 2013 at 1:15 am

She looks european

nnnnn January 18, 2013 at 1:16 am

And norwegians are european. Or not?

nnnnn January 18, 2013 at 1:50 am

They are not “whiter”, than European.
Norwegians, english, irish, german, north-french,
dutsch and even polish – all have the same look

nnnnn March 1, 2013 at 11:12 am

Why 28 dislikes? Smb means “norwegians are not white”?

andrew March 4, 2013 at 5:53 pm

is she too” hot” to be Norwegian?

SmartAss July 16, 2013 at 12:39 pm

@nnnnn that isn’t true…
norwegians and english are “whiter” than irish, german and north-french!

Once I read that in ancient times even referring to the Germanic peoples only about 40 % have blonde hair and the most dark blonde to brown (and a few red, of course). Perhaps a different definition of “light hair”.

So what’s “light hair” at all? Where’s the point at your graphic they call hair not light but … dark blonde? red? brown? black? And in some countries you can see regions with more light-haired people and some with less. And people with brown hair, blue eyes and really (!) light skin.

So what does it say to be “white”? (And what does it mean, to think further …)

You know more about her ethnicity than herself? Show pics of documents and papers than links with genealogy traced by internet users.
