17 Female Celebrities Who've Embraced Their Birthmarks

Take a stroll along memory road and think of all the female silver screen stars, models, and musicians whose distinctive birthmarks were considered the epitome of beauty, grace, and seduction: Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Sophia Loren, Goldie Hawn, and Dorothy Dandridge, to name a few. In the '50s and '60s, moles were considered desirable physical attributes, tiny spots to liven up the face and give it an alluring mystique. Though these beauty marks fell out of favor in the '70s and '80s, they experienced another revival in the '90s — largely thanks to the meteoric rise of supermodel Cindy Crawford. 


Nowadays the aesthetic appeal of beauty marks remains a contested issue, but we think these specks add character and, more often than not, help to accentuate a woman's features. Find out which celebrities embrace their birthmarks and recognize them to be playful exclamation points that emphasize one's natural beauty.
