    Can You Classify Deborah Harry?

    I hope this doesn't seem too silly, and that I'm posting in the right category as well. Deborah Harry, I always thought, was probably the most beautiful celebrity I've ever seen. She was adopted, and she's never revealed her heritage to my knowledge. Can any of you determine where you suspect her lineage is from? I'm throwing out Ukrainian or Polish just for starters. Could she be Germanic? She has a very "dark" beauty to me, so my mind automatically goes to Eastern Europe.

    Oh, come on!

    Nobody answers? People classify Arnold Schwarzennwhatver, but not Debbie Harry? I think her face is beautiful and interesting. Plus, since she was adopted, I'de love to hear your opinions on where her background might be from.

    Hi GermaniaGirl,

    You could start by supplying more photo's. They have to be clear and from several angles. One picture is not enough. We have a lot of these topics, and it's only natural that the topics with few photographs get lower priority, less attention.

    We do have bulk classifications, like when we take a look at football teams, and there is only one picture for every player, but that's because the objective is slightly different. Namely, to get a general impression of a demographic.

    Good luck!

    I'm also curious about her face.
    (Had a bit of a crush on her when I was a boy. )
    I found what I believe to be suitable images, although I could not locate one from the side.
    She does appear to have a slightly exotic influence.





    Here she is as an older woman and does not look to have had any cosmetic surgery:

    Thank you, Anlef, for the suggestion. I think I tried to find better pictures, but I was way too picky and thought I had to find "the one".
    And thank you, Ronan, for providing more photos. Actually, Debbie admits to getting plastic surgery over the later years in her life. But, boy was she a stunner! I have a crush on her, and I'm a straight girl! I've always wondered if maybe she was Polish. (As a side note: I've just recently learned how good looking many Polish women are and that they have this reputation in Europe. I always associated "Polish" w/ the sausage. Silly, I know.)

    You're welcome, GermaniaGirl. And thanks for the pictures, Ronan.

    At first I was going to call her Baltid, full stop. I could point out all the reasons why, but I'll let you compare for yourself: the Baltid type. However, I think especially her jaw is more triangular than you would see in most Baltids, and is more typical to the Faelid type. Also, while her head is broad, compact and reduced, it's not as much as you would find in a typical Baltid.

    Therefore I believe she is West-Baltid. (Which is basically between Faelid/Borreby and Baltid proper.)

    (Disclaimer: I'm still relatively new at this game.)

    Anlef, you seem to be pretty good at this for a self-proclaimed beginner. I'm so, so new at this so please excuse my ignorance by asking whether that could mean she's Slavic?

    GermaniaGirl,

    Yes, she could be Slavic. Not necessarily though.

    Baltids are typical to the eastern and southern shores of the Baltic Sea. As the names would suggest, West-Baltids, then, are found more in the western part of the spectrum, Baltids more in the middle, and East-Baltids in the eastern part of the spectrum.

    If Deborah Harry is indeed West-Baltid, she could be of Polish (= Slavic) ancestry, but also East-German for example. But she could just as well be the result of a German (= Germanic) parent of the Faelid type and an Lithuanian (= Baltic) parent of the Baltid type. Other such combinations are just as conceivable.

    Well, that's how I estimate it, at least. I hope it is of use to you.

    Deborah Harry is definitely a product of some mix of people from areas that touch the Baltic Sea. The look is too distinctive yet somewhat indeterminable.

    You got great help on Debbie Harry - I'm a big fan of hers too. I thought there would be more input on Phil Jackson (he has such a distinctive look, and he clearly has some Germanic ancestry Anglo-German, according to the genealogies I have for him).

    But nope. Maybe he's pure CM? Anyone?

    More on Debby would be great too.
