In a world filled with cookie-cutter blondes and brunettes with perfectly symmetrical features, we were happily surprised that Melissa Juratowitch, a 16 year old from Victoria, was crowned Australia's Next Top Model. With her heart-shaped face, wide-set eyes and larger than normal forehead, it makes us remember that a point of difference can be so refreshing. And when it comes to other stars, you'll see that their "quirky" features — from gaps in their teeth to freckles, dimples, mismatched eyes, strong noses, bold brows and more — haven't held them back in anyway. In fact, their beautiful uniquities have made them some of the most admired and respected women in the world.
Aussie model Jess Hart joins birthday girl Madonna in the gap-toothed genre, Lea Michele's been vocal about her choice to keep her "Jewish nose" exactly as is, and Rashida Jones and Sienna Miller are two of the most beautiful women in the world — freckles and all. Beauty comes in so many forms. . . Let's celebrate them all and congratulations Melissa!
