5 Unconventionally Beautiful Women We Love

Written by Angela Atkinson

“I am an unconventional beauty. I grew up in a high school where if you didn’t have a nose job and money and if you weren’t thin, you weren’t cool, popular, beautiful. I was always told that I wasn’t pretty enough to be on television.” ~Glee actress Lea Michele

We’re continuing to celebrate Beautiful Women Week here at Project Blissful (in collaboration with MTM Body), and today, I thought you might like to see a few unconventionally beautiful women. Yesterday, I shared my list of 20 of my favorite women who are the embodiment of both brains and beauty (not to mention success)!

And now, without further ado, I present to you 10 unconventionally beautiful women whose names you might recognize.

5 Unconventionally Beautiful Women We Love


English: Adele


You probably know her as an amazing singer who also happens to be a talented songwriter. You’ve probably read about her struggles with weight and with her throat problems that threatened her career. You know she’s been through it all–and you love her anyway. Adele may not look like the standard society-approved beauty, but there’s no question that she’s absolutely gorgeous.

Mia Tyler



Maybe you know her as Steven Tyler‘s daughter, or even Liv Tyler‘s long-lost sister. You might even be aware that she’s a pretty successful plus-sized model. However you want to look at it–Mia Tyler is pretty damn hot, don’t you think?

Jennifer Coolidge


English: American actress Jennifer Coolidge.

She’s Stifler’s Mom from American Pie. She’s Sophie, the sexy, wealthy, generously selfish neighbor you can’t help but love on CBS’s Two Broke Girls. And she, my friends might just be the queen of unconventionally beautiful women. Jennifer Coolidge definitely doesn’t fit the Hollywood mold, but she’s clearly beautiful and successful.

America Ferrera

English: America Ferrera at the Dallas Interna...

She’s been called Ugly Betty. She’s been a sister of the traveling pants and a Lifetime moviestar. She’s a great actress–and despite claims to the contrary, America Ferrera is super-hot and holds her ground in this unconventional beauty roundup.


Mindy Kaling


English: Actress Mindy Kaling at the premiere ...


She was Kelly Kapoor on NBC’s The Office. She’s now staring as sassy, sexy (and uhm, UNCONVENTIONAL) Dr. Mindy Lahiri in The Mindy Project, and honestly, I can’t get enough of her. Not only is Mindy Kaling an unc0nventional beauty, but she’s also super-smart and talented. And her ability to be vulnerable makes her totally lovable.

So those are my picks for today–who are some of your favorite unconventionally beautiful ladies? Share your thoughts in the comments section, below!
