    @passingtime85 No one is talking of the Eastern Asians but the Asian common face, Scandinavians have lot of Asian too like Eastern Slavs but she looks Eastern Slav than Scandinavian who they are elvish.

    • passingtime85 says:

      There’s over a billion people from Asia that don’t look like that though. A large portion of Indians, Pakis, Afghans, from North India up to Kazakhstan are Caucasoid. Don’t use elvish to describe features, it has no basis in reality because elves are fictional and can look like anything a writer/artist wants them to look like.

        They still don’t look Euros they can be diluted for their races but the opposite of us Euros.
        Elves are based and inspired by reality lot of Scandinavians have this Asiatic-elf traits especially Finns.

        • passingtime85 says:

          For the sake of accuracy don’t use elves as a reference. If can you describe a phenotypical feature that’s distinctive and common to a group of people, just describe it and not rely on some fantasy that can vary wildly from story to story.

          You have too stringent of a view point of what is and isn’t. There’s hundreds of millions of people in Europe you’ve never seen and don’t look like what you describe as being wholly European, even though their bloodlines have been in Europe for over 10,000 years. There’s no one look that defines the continent.

          Do you know Napoleon Bonaparte and Adolf Hitler’s paternal haplogroups did not originate from Europe? They descend from haplogroups that have roots in North Africa and the Levant. Would you call them Arabs?

            I don’t believe what you say you read too much magazines like a kid like you are.

          • passingtime85 says:

            @muricansareallmutts They both are in the E paternal haplogroup, that’s from Africa.

            There’s only one paternal haplogroup that developed solely in Europe and that’s haplogroup I.

    I always though Kate Moss could have a bit of distant African blood (well, I suppose we all do far enough back!). In black in white photos with a fake tan, especially with her hair tied back, she can look convincingly mixed race.

  3. Obey says:

    She does not look very white. It seems to be yellow. Is it because of the tan?

    • italiano90 says:

      Why are you referring to Kate Moss as “it” as if she’s a humanoid alien? How does Kate NOT look white? I’ve seen Scottish and english women that look very similar to Kate.

    • NOTREALLY says:

      a lot of Europeans people have “yellow” (a.k.a warm) skin, or rather warm skin that simply looks yellowish with pretty much any lighting, not only southerners also British isles and some central Europeans
