Whenever someone says they/someone they know is stunning,all i ever want to ask is what do they look like.

Not because i doubt them, not at all, i just really want to know what does a stunning woman look like TO THEM.

Catherine Zeta-Jones in The Mask of Zorro is the pinnacle of a stunning woman to me

My husband would say me. No, he really would.

He's got shit in his eye, obviously, but it works for me.

Well ‘stunning’ is bandied about a LOT on social media isn’t it? Lots of overly-filtered pics- ‘you look stunning hun!’

Looked stunning on my wedding day, my face is glowing, but then someone professional did my hair and make up and it was a sunny day so the lightning was fab.

I don’t particularly think women with lots of make up and fake eyelashes and work done on their faces are particularly stunning at all but each to their own. A stunning woman off the top of my head is Cate Blanchet, and Nicole Kidman before she messed with her face.

Someone who just dazzles and stands out from the crowd. My best friend is stunning, she's not classically beautiful, but has great bone structure, bright green eyes, red hair and an amazing smile.

Audrey Hepburn

Sophia Loren

Elizabeth Taylor.

Dark haired beauties.

I think beauty looks so different on different woman, but I saw a woman at the market with her young baby today and just though "wow"! She was probably late 30s, no make-up but her face was like a painting. Huge, almond eyes, great jaw & cheek bones and messy dark brown hair. I just wanted to tell her how beautiful she is!

I think it's an air of confidence, it's not a 'look' it's an expression of self assurance.
I automatically think of Beyoncé at Cochella, Lupita on the red carpet, Cameron Diaz in the mask, Marilyn, Gemma Chan in anything. Women that just take your breath away with their aura.

All the people I’ve seen described as stunning never are to me, so I guess it’s down to the individual what is stunning and what isn’t

Yasmin Le Bon and Sharon Tate.

Both timeless beauties

Princess Diana that night at the Serpentine.

My partner says I am. I've natural red hair green eyes (beautiful) smile with high cheek bones....but he would ! wink I don't wear makeup and think women with natural look is better I do think it's also about your confidence etc too.

I think Vicky Mclure is just so pretty, she really does just seem naturally gorgeous.

Christy Turlington
Catherine Zeta Jones
Angelina Jolie

Bone structure and eyes

Emma Watson is stunning to me

StillRailing Fri 07-May-21 20:02:08

I agree with Yasmin LeBon.

Ginuwine Fri 07-May-21 20:03:32

Great facial bone structure, height, big eyes, good hair, ideally tall - and at their best weight

Interesting thread
I've always admired Kate winslet
Faye from steps. She is stunning in recent videos they've released.
Cameron Diaz
Dutchess of Cambridge

Women who ooze intelligence, talent and integrity.

Michaela Coel
Ruby Commey
They have smiles which are dazzling - in German, you'd say strahlend.
Also Michaela's cheekbones - you could cut yourself on them - she's like the female Benedict Cumberbatch in that regard
Karen Gillan
Alicia Witt back in the day
The red hair is - in the youth speak parlance - ''fire''
I think Blondie, Chrissie Hynde and Shirlie Manson all have a charisma which makes them something to behold.
I think stunning - as in takes your breath away - is also a mixture of confidence and aura - not just looks-based. That said, if looking at general physical appeal - many of the 'stunners' simply have good symmetry, don't they?

Aishwarya Rai is absolutely stunning. She's 47 and I think the most stunning eyes too. Also Samira Wiley could turn me.

NiceGerbil Fri 07-May-21 20:11:22

I think it's often those with qualities different to our own. And some personal aesthetic taste etc.

Audrey Hepburn for me and... Trying to remember. Oh Clara in Dr who.

Brunettes with enormous brown eyes then!
