In general, no, but when I'm dressed like this, yep:


And that's most of the time. Probably why I cherish wearing my pretty dresses and shoes so much!

Sairis you definitely don't look like a boy!

Oh and as for me even when I purposely dressed up as a guy I couldn't pass for one! I definitely don't have big boobs so I guess it was my face that gave it away
Turtles: omg please don't put that in your moo moo

Nej: too late... moo moo has been infiltrated.
I don't think my face could ever look boyish, but the chef's uniform does make me feel that way.
Even worse, when at school, we had to do dining service and the original uniform (which they've mercifully changed) included a horrible vest that made one look like a boxy little boy. Plus you know, hair up in a bun, too.

Body wise, in high school and through my early 20s, I had a boyish slim figure. I had curves but they were very slight. Through 20s and 30s my curves have increased (which fluctuates with my weight). So even when I went through phases of dressing more androgynously, wanting to be taken seriously or thumbing my nose at conventional gender roles, I was still clearly female. Now? I love looking feminine and being female. I see more potential power in our gender than the male gender, where I used to think the opposite. Or maybe I see greater parity or equality now (at least the hope of it) where I did not see it or feel it before.

I guess maybe it's more a matter of feeling boyish than looking it. I know when I'm working, sometime around the end of winter I'm itching for a day of girly-ness and glamour because I can't take the uniform and wearing a coat every single day for so long and working with guys all the time.

In terms of body shape, your being small makes you look more feminine. The boyish looking girl with pretty eyes and a sweet smile holding the tray looks plump without the womanly hourglass type figure. So, her figure looks more male to me in that hideous apron uniform thing. In person and in a dress, I'm sure she looks different.

And yeah, no makeup allowed during labs in culinary school. And for the most part, women did follow that rule.

I'm not sure what it is that actually makes a person looks 'boyish' but I always thought Maria Shriver looks like a dude. Something about the cut or angle of her face.



If she was in a 'guess if it a girl or boy' transvestite contest, I'd guess she was dude.

Hillary Swank is pretty and doesn't look 'boyish.' You may have seen her in that movie 'million dollar baby' where she had to bulk up for the part - which may have given her a 'masculine' beefy appearance, but overall she looks very girly.
I think if a woman is thin and already looked a bit angular and hormones changes occur that it will become even more pronounced and she could look more masculine (like Shriver in photo). I look forward to the day when androgyny will be popular again like in the 70s.
Nothing against Shriver as a person, but sometimes when I see her I think she looks so much like a skull. If you're skinny, your bone structure will show more...but it's not just that. It's how it shows in her case, her naturally prominent features combined with being skinny. That she looks kinda mannish doesn't usually phase me because I see Skeletor. And it's kinda creepy. Yet there's also times I've thought she looks good and wasn't impressed with that in the moment.

Agreed with comments on Maria Shriver with her hard features and square mannish jaw. Jessica Simpson has a jaw like that (or similar) and looks facially mannish as well.

Do you think if Shriver had a different haircut it would soften her jawline? I think she needs shorter hair with layers away from her face.
I think Maria Shriver seriously needs to eat or something. She doesn't look masculine, just starved.

I think I can be slighty boyish, or have been. I was a tomboy when I was a kid, so maybe that's why.
I think a bit of androgyny on both sexes can enhance one's looks. They've done studies on faces that were extremely feminine on women, and extremely masculine on men, and they both looked weird and/or scary to some degree. A general good mix of both looks pretty good though. I think we all have that to some degree.

for my age ive been told that i still look boyish. having oily skin like Sairis does slow down the aging process.

Guano...are there any pics that Sairis post that doesnt have food?
