Hollywood has long told us that to be beautiful and sexy you must have sun-kissed skin like the actors on their shows, but if you go around the world and visit colder regions of the world (Scandinavia being a prime example), you'll soon realize that America's definition of beauty just isn't true.
To prove this, we've chosen 10 celebrities with beautiful, porcelain skin who showed you don't always need the sun to look good in La La Land.
1. Emma Roberts
Emma Roberts may be most famous for her surname (she is the niece of A-list megastar, Julia Roberts) but Emma Roberts has showcased her acting capabilities over the years in many indies and studio films, culminating in an impressive Instagram following of more than 11.6m.
However, while Roberts may appear to be comfortable in front of the camera, the natural beauty has admitted that her pale skin used to make her extremely self-conscious. “I definitely have a complex about being pale because I’ve been made fun of my whole life, so I was nervous about that,” she said. "When I was a kid, everyone would be like, ‘Your legs are so pale! I can’t believe you’re wearing a dress!’ And I would get so embarrassed. I would get spray tans, and I look back at those photos now, and I just think: Oh my goodness, you’re orange. I would tell my younger self to stop spray-tanning so much. Just own it.”
2. Nicole Kidman
For someone born and raised in Australia, Kidman's milk-white skin hardly fits the stereotype of an Australian, sun-dappled beach babe, but Kidman's beauty radiates in plenty of other ways.
Possessing a tall, catwalk-like figure, Kidman's features and strong white skin are so beautiful she's hardly ever in need of a weekly spray tan.
3. Michelle Williams
Another marvellous actress, Michelle Williams's fair skin complexion is clear to see, with the star not being afraid to go el natural at awards shows.
Not that there's anything wrong with the odd fake tan, but we certainly think Williams is at her best when sticking to her natural skin tone.
4. Rachel McAdams
She may have made a name for herself in romance movies such as The Notebook and The Vow, but in recent years McAdams's career has seen her perform in many different roles, only enhancing her reputation as one of Hollywood's go-to actresses.
She's also a regular name on the most beautiful people lists, all without ever hitting the tanning beds!
5. Anne Hathaway
Anne Hathaway shot to fame from an early age when she starred in The Princess Diaries, with her signature good looks and incredible acting abilities still serving her years into her career.
But with all the money in the world, Hathaway still feels comfortable with her natural, more light-colored skin tone.
6. Amanda Seyfried
Amanda Seyfried was already making waves as a fashion model when Hollywood came calling and is yet another example of a pale Hollywood beauty bucking the trend by refusing to alter her natural pigment.
Still working on a number of different projects, Seyfried most recently starred in the sequel to the popular live-action musical, Mama Mia!
7. Robert Pattinson
Pale beauties also exist in the male world, and few come hotter than the Twilight hunk, Robert Pattinson.
Continuing to sport a vampirish complexion that made him a household name in the Twilight movies, Pattinson has been criticized by some for his refusal to use tanning products, but with millions of female admirers, he has no reason to care.
8. Kirsten Dunst
Kirsten Dunst was once one of Hollywood's highest-paid ladies, with her role in the Spiderman franchise alongside Toby Maguire bringing her worldwide attention.
Now entering her more seasoned years, Dunst's pale skin hasn't seemed to hinder her chances in Hollywood, with her English-rose complexion never failing to delight photographers.
9. Shawn Mendes
Shawn Mendes has been all the rage in the last few years following the worldwide success of his first two albums, and despite admitting in a previous interview that all he sees when he looks in the mirror is a pale Canadian male, Mendes has fast become a global sex symbol.
And with awe-inspiring virtuosity and a height most supermodels would be proud of, Mendes's fair skin hasn't seemed to get in the way of being lusted over by nearly every female on Earth.
10. Gwen Stefani
Along with her hits, Gwen Stefani's fabled appearance has long made her standout as a pop princess, and with such a rosy complexion, we can't imagine Stefani looking any different.
While not as fair-skinned as the likes of Anne Hathaway and Robert Pattinson, Stefani still sports a milky complexion and has very rarely been seen with a deep tan.
