Not the best picture of her, but she has a nice long face, but very black charcoal hair. What would you characterize her as?

Her hair is dyed. She has even talked about the dyed hair in an interview. It's one of those trendy things to do.

Other than that, she look Trönder, typical for Sveland, eastern Swedish.

Hmm. Hard to imagine her as blonde or any other light color since her skin tone is quite dark.

I would not call her skin dark, but everything is relative. I think it is fair when it is not exposed to the sun.

She had dark blonde hair as a child.

I don't think she has yellow-blonde hair, but that her hair is dyed is obvious. It's even easier to tell in the attached picture in this post. Natural dark brown or black hair is not of that lilac shade.

In any case, very beautiful face. Are you aware of historians claiming the Trojans are the ancestors of the Swedes? Could that be the reason that the 'Greek Ideal of Beauty' is more or less Nordic? Is large teeth also a Nordic trait?

At first I was going to say North-Atlantid but her features are too "strong" or "robust" so I would guess full nordic perhaps with just an higher degree of pigmentation.

@helsingor: the "greek ideal of beauty" varied from author and it wasn't based on just one complete ideal. Some greeks though that blonde women where more beautifull, some prefered the dark haired ones. Also, note that there is a general tendency to prefer the less common types ( note that in Southern Europe blondes (male and female) stand out from the crowd, the same happening to southerners in Northern Europe. Trojans as ancestors to swedes? I would rather guessed they blend down and down until the Seljuks took over the region, the rest of them emmigrated to mainland Greece. I think a trojan diaspora to the north is at least non-plausible.
