AIBU to wish people would stop staring!

I have recently noticed people having a good old stare at me. Not a discrete glance but a full on stare as I walk past, actually turning their heads to watch me once I have already passed them. I tend to catch them staring out of the corner of my eye, then if I turn round a few steps on they are still staring. What are they looking at? I am fully clothed, no distinguishing features. AIBU to want them to stop?
I am almost tempted to shout "what are you looking at have I got a tampon on my head" which I once heard a teenager say to her friend I'm obviously not gong to say that

Is this a stealth boast and you are the double of Angelina Joile or something?
Seriously though, are you sure you aren't imagining it? Maybe they have given you a glance, which you have clocked, so then make eye contact with them, so they think you are staring at them?
You could always try staring deeply right back at them; that tends to make people look away quickly!

Maybe you're walking about suspiciously, eyes darting from side to side trying to catch people out who are staring at you. And people are walking past thinking, hey up, whats wrong with this woman, and turning back for a second glance. Only to find you have turned round and you are still staring at them just a thought.
