Abstract Beauty - Rossy de Palma

Spanish actress Rossy de Palma might just have the best profile ever.  I remember seeing her years ago in a Gypsy-inspired editorial, you know when they have a couple of models and then a cast of "characters" to add some interest and authenticity?  I thought she looked way cooler than any of the models and totally stole every shot.  I've never seen any of her movies, but now that's on my list. 

What an extraordinary face!  I read somewhere that she's like a Picasso portrait come to life, and there's some truth to that.  In design class we learned about how the human eye naturally find symmetry beautiful which is why most models have amazingly symmetrical faces.  But when you look at Rossy de Palma's decidedly uneven face, it's so interesting and striking.


  1. Rossy de Palma is an extraordinary woman! I've only just come across her myself and her acting is also on my list! Thanks for sharing, I love your photos! Mia x

  2. Her appearances, & the films of Almodovar, you're in for a treasure trove of treats.
