Designer Jean Paul Gaultier once said that "beauty is difference" and that couldn't be more true for the women we're celebrating here.

They may not be Angelina Jolie or Kerry Washington, but these women have an unconventional beauty that is unique to them, making them all the more beautiful.

So, rather than spend time singing the praises of the same old celebrities, we thought we'd give a warm shout out to the women who are stunning for their unconventional looks that set them apart from the rest of Hollywood.
