26 Female Celebrities With 'Big' Noses Who Are Totally Rocking Their Classic Beauty

As someone with a strong nose — big nose, schnoz, whatever you wanna call it — I know it isn't always an easy look to embrace. Not because it isn't beautiful (strong noses have been considered lovely for centuries) but because in our plastic surgery-obsessed culture, the number of female celebrities rocking a big, strong nose are few and far between. Still, growing up, I would always notice and appreciate when I saw female celebrities with strong profiles. Look, there's one! My mind would record the fact that they too were beautiful and famous, and actually looked a little something like me.

Sure, what constitutes a "big nose" in Hollywood is probably a really normal, even small nose in real life; despite my best efforts to find a comprehensive assortment of races of celebrities who are plastic surgery-free, that proved pretty much impossible. Some of the women on this list probably have indeed had more subtle nose jobs, but most of them are still rocking a somewhat-ethnic look. We have a long way to go, but these women are holding it down.

So if you're the proud (or-not-so-proud-yet) owner of a strong nose, click on, and remember: your beauty is pretty much the definition of classic beauty. Rock it.
