Model Look Dissection

So a while back here I said I wanted to start a thread for us to categorize and uber-microcategorize model looks. I know we won't all agree on whose look goes under each category, or even what categories there should be! So, I will start with a few ideas and we can all add to them, agree or disagree, debate them, etc!

Just a few to get started and to give examples of what I mean:

The Babydoll - Gemma, Vlada, Heather M

The Blank Canvas - Kasia, Toni G

The Elfin - Tanya D, Anna S, Anja R

The Androgyne - Freja, Hanne

Those are some ideas to get started, and they are just my opinions (though some are pretty universal eg. Gemma as Vlada babydolls :) ) - I'm really excited to see what everyone thinks and can't wait to see how deep we can dig!

True, I forgot about her face for a second. I didn't remember so... Voldemort-like :confused:

Haha, I actually like Coco Rocha. When I saw you left her uncategorized, I remembered she posted that side-by-side on her tumblr a while back and thought it was humourous because she openly agreed with the strong resemblance. Self-categorized I guess. ;)
Ondria Hardin, Elfin.
Julia Nobis, blank canvas.
Doutzen Kroes, sexy/classic beauty.
Isabeli Fontana, sexy.
Agyness Deyn, androgynous.
Stella Tennant, androgyous.
Mariacarla Boscono, I really don't know where to put her because I reaaaally love her but I also think she has something alien-ish (in a good way, like out-of-this-world!)
Sui He, classic beauty.
Lily Cole, alien
