I'm not gonna lie, I do find her attractive in that sort of dark way. I know she's not the most physically attractive person to walk the Earth, but something about her that's beautiful.

I think, in some of the better done photographs when she was younger, she is quite attractive. These two pictures are the best:

And even in the Mike Wallace interview, she didn't look unattractive. I think it depends a lot on when the picture was taken.

The thing that creeps me most about Rand's appearance is, she looks like she might be a relative. Seriously, she looks quite a bit like some previous generations of my family.

I think her style is interesting but it's not exactly my taste, to put it diplomatically...

I must confess I have a weakness for women with great sense of style, especially when they're wearing beautiful dresses. And when it's Jessica Biel in a lovely dress it gets seriously hot.

She's aslo got a pretty face, wonderful hair and probably Hollywood's hottest body...

Physically attractive or not, one thing's for certain: the woman had no style. Look at that dress! Nowadays, as the public figure that she was, she would have to have gotten herself a stylist.

Are you sure that wasn't a stylish dress at the time?

I'm no expert on vintage clothing, but... the dress is awful, and there were certainly some clothes from every decade that still look good today. I couldn't say whether that particular dress was considered stylish at the time.

That picture was clearly a casual, at home picture. If she were "out on the town," I'm sure she would have worn a stylish dress. Even Jessica Biel does not wear stylish dresses when she is just sitting at home watching television. It's a matter of context.

Well... would you wear it JASKN? j/k And to play pre-emtive defense--no I wouldn't.
You know, when you put it that way, in a context that relates in no way whatever, yes... I would wear it. In fact, that dress is amazing! ...

I'm going to avoid a side-topic on personal and fashion-related style, mostly because it will come down to each person saying, "Welp, I just don't/do like it." But, style is not driven by scenario contexts. A person, a thing, an attitude, whatever, all have particular styles independent of, but possibly related to, a scenario. So with fashion, someone might dress differently for a fancy party than for sleeping at night, but each of those types of clothes will also be stylish, or not.

EDIT: And just to throw it out there, I think her picture on the left is stylish. She has a cool, sleek look, and I think it works. Too bad the full dress or blouse can't be seen.

I always thought she looked like someone who belonged in her time, know what I'm saying?

I believe she also used to wear a cape, which was considered very fashionable at the time - but I can't substantiate that, I just read it somewhere.

I want to bring that back! Wearing a cape that is. I've been trying to bring back the whole "wear a jacket like a cape" thing because I've found it to be quite comfortable, but I think a modern, stylish cape do the job just fine.
