You might agree or disagree with me, you might even be disappointed, calling me blind, unfollowing my account, whatsoever. But know this: we all have different taste and opinion of what beauty is, since there's no such thing as absolute beauty. FYI, there are 7 billions of people in the world nowadays, half of them/us are women. Only 20-30% of women are celebrities, models, public figures, known by the world. I might only know like 0.001% of them, which is still like thousands of beautiful women. So, please don't take it personal if you couldn't find your favourite woman here. Don't call these women ugly just because your woman wasn't on the list. Just enjoy the show. I've done such an effort choosing only 100 amongst thousands." #OonaChaplin #OonaCastillaChaplin #SpanishActress #TalisaMaegyr #RobbStark #RedWedding #HouseStark #GoT #GoT4 #GameofThrones #Top50MostBeautifulWomen #Top100MostBeautifulWomen #MostBeautifulWomen
