      Hey Are you sure she doesn’t have English, British Islands or Irish descent?, she looks like mixed with English, she doesn’t look Italian at all!, maybe it’s because of her German side… Like Meryem Uzerli who is half German and half Turkish and is an actress in Turkey and looks almost exactly like Drew Barrymore who has some German ancestry and Alicia Silverstone. Btw, please search for the ethnicities of Sarah Ashley Toups

        Victoria, if you are talking about Kristin Cavallari, yes I am sure she doesn’t have English, British Island, and/or Irish descent.

        Why a person who is half Italian half German should look Italian? It does not makes sense. Hard to see an Italian girl with a jawline like that.

          Well, you probably must have seen more italians then I have, but having lived in Italy for most of my adult life I can guarantee that I’ve seen such a huge variety of features that I always get a bit confused when someone – usually on the internet – says something like this. It would be an extremely complex task – to say the least – that of figuring out the “average” italian look. Yet many ppl online seem to know how to do it quickly and easily. Amazing

      Please @ETHNIC search for the descent of actress Sarah Ashley Toups, she appears on PrPhotos, I don’t have another choice but asking you this through this comment because it’s not posible to do it clicking on “Submit a celeb” because it ironically asks me for their ethnicity and it’s ridiculous since I’m actually searching for it and vence haven’t a clue. If you please fix this issue and allow people to request celebs ancestry search. Please and thanks

    I live in Italy. Cavallari is a Sicilian surname, for sure. It’s clear that her hair isn’t natural. But Italians have different color and features. Stop with stereotypes. Most of the Italians-Americans are from the South, but they can also be pale.
