What do Russian people look like?

I know this might sound ignorant since Russia is a pretty diverse country, but quite a lot of people have said I 'look Russian' and I'm not quite sure what that means.

  • I think some people on here tend to confuse real, actual Russians with American celebrities who've got a Russian Grandpa. That's a little ridiculous.
    Russians are Slavs, ethnically speaking. Thus, they tend to be of very fair skin and usually quite tall. Many women tend to have naturally blond hair but not all do. Many men tend to have square-shaped faces. The Klitschko brothers are a great example of that (they're actually Ukrainian but Ukraine is right next to Russia and Ukrainians are also Slavs). Also, men tend to be of very stocky built. They might be tall but they're also kinda massive, with thick bones and lots of flesh. Women are sometimes said to be very skinny but that's actually just a stereotype that we have because rich Russian celebrities look that way. If you go out into the countryside, you will find many short and stocky women, kinda like in Turkey or even in Greece.

  • Generally they seem to be skinny and tall to I think. I think most of the women have blonde hair. I am not sure if the guys have blonde hair as well though. However, this is not all Russians but this is what I have noticed about the majority of them.

  • You could look like literally anyone. Your nationality doesn't define your features, especially in a country as big as Russia.
    You could look like anything from a more Asian structure to a more NE structure or, of course, a more Western structure.

    No picture, no real idea.

    • I am half Asian and half white, but people say I look more white. I guess it's because some Russians have Asian ancestry.

    • Alright than.

  • Here's a picture of some Russian people.

    Perhaps you have Slavic features.

  • I was in San Francisco a couple years ago and a Russian Navy ship was visiting. A bunch of sailors were getting off the boat and loading a bus for a tour. They were the WHITEST people I've seen in my life. You would thing being out on a ship they would get some sun, but they looked like they had been on a submarine for a year.

  • They are just very traditional white people, I guess? Eastern Slavic, a lot of blue eyes, blonde hair but also pretty brunettes, above average height.
    Russian looks are very diverse though, Pamela Anderson, Dicaprio, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Dave & James Franco, Jake Gyllenhaal, Mila Kunis, Milla Jovovich and Steven Seagal are all of direct Russian descent.

  • I'm not sure alcoholism, potatoes and world domination have a look... (Relax, I'm kidding)

    Russian women are always very well dressed and they never even have a single hair out of place. You can tell she's Russian a mile away by the way she appears and holds herself.

    When I hear "Russian girl" I automatically think hot. Just google russian girls

  • I always stereotyped Russians as massive Europeans with fair skin and fair eyes and dark hair.
