Homer described Helen of Troy (in Greek, Ἑλένη, Helénē) as "white-armed, long-robed and richly-tressed." True to her reputation she was an otherworldly beauty that men and women alike found breathtaking. Being a Mediterranean woman she likely had pale olive skin. She was also tall and regal, possessing silken dark tresses (not blond as is commonly assumed) and had a slender figure with full hips. Her face was smooth, symmetrical and unblemished, though it was her playful hazel eyes and her knowing smile that truly captivated people. Helen was proud and intimidating, yet at times was compassionate as well. To get a true sense of her beauty, think of a young Elizabeth Taylor mixed with a heady dose of Megan Fox and Angelina Jolie.
