When I think of Yoko, I think of an artist involved in the pioneering Fluxus art group in NYC, I think of a Japanese-American woman having to deal with a lot of sexism and racism once she became involved with Lennon (but held her own anyway), I think of a striking-looking woman with long, black hair, a white mini skirt and white boots, and a graceful woman at Kennedy airport years ago with her son Sean who actually returned my smile when I caught her eye. So much more than just a traditional "bella" :nerdgirl:

Do I detect some sarcasm, Toosugar? ;)

A Bella Donna?? Someone with brains? With strong opinions? Someone who follows their own path and doesn't mold themselves or their look to everybody else's? Someone who, as was pointed out above, turned Lennon, someone who once sang "Well I'd rather see you dead, little girl, Than to be with another man" (Run for Your Life lyrics) into a feminist? This is ridiculous. Unless you are 20 years old, bleached blonde, with collagen-injected lips, a drug habit, no sense of responsibility, either personal or social, no brains, and you wear what everyone else does (Ugg boots - gaucho pants - black leggings and ballet slippers) I don't see how you can be considered beautiful, much less iconic. Just saying.

John loved her, that is all that matters. Sure she isn't a Brigitte Bardot, but she definitely has been graced with the love of an extraordinary man :)

I don't like her and don't consider her a Bella Donna at all. I don't care about the Beatles thing - they would have broken up anyway, just a little later than they did. I guess I'm just not "avant garde"!

*** a pot head. Singular. Whoops.

i agree with the above post. i don't find her to be pretty but there's something about her that obviously attracts people (lennon, designers, etc.) and that's more important than being the pretty girl in the room

I don't idolize much about a pot heads who clearly doesn't understand the definition of "genocide"...

While she's not conventionally beautiful, her style, daring, and originality certainly make her a Bella Donna.

She sure looks like she ages gracefully. (P.S. Not a Yoko Ono fan nor a Beatles fan :))

I think she has grown into her beauty but she has always had her own style. Bella Donna indeed.

I am a huge Beatles fan — in fact, I consider myself something of a Beatles scholar :) — and trust me, Yoko did not break up the Beatles. I have always loved her unorthodox look. Her skin is totally amazing, and I love the wild, long hair she used to wear. She didn't try to look pretty in a typically American way, and she really was and still is beautiful.

I not a big Yoko fan myself, but to say that she was the sole reason why the Beatles broke up is absurd. Besides John, there were three other members to keep the band together, and all four of them seemed to be going in their separate directions.

Anyone who doesnt like Yoko just because it was rumored that she "broke up the beatles" needs to read a book or 2 on the subject. The beatles wouldnt have stayed together forever, it was bound to happen, and John was just going in a whole new direction with his life, maybe he found that direction because of Yoko but you cant say it was a bad direction. Before he met yoko he expected woman to throw themselves at his feet. she taught him how to respect woman and hell, even become a feminist! how many woman can say they've turned their husband into a feminist? I dont necessarily enjoy her music style, (and havent seen any of her art) but i still think she is an iconic woman. AS crazy as it sounsd, it litterally brings tears to my eyes every time I think about John Lennon's death, and i wasnt even born when it happened. lol Anyways thats what i think of Yoko! :)

I agree with you 100% TannisRoot! Everyone always seems to ignore how the racist media attacked her. She is one of my favorite female artists of the twentieth century.

Yoko Ono is widely considered one of the most important avant garde artists of the late twentieth century, a dance club diva extraordinaire, a peace activist with credibility Angelina Jolie could only dream of possessing, a muse to Alexander McQueen, and an all-around cool chick who simply fell afoul of the racist British press (of the time). She did NOT break up the Beatles -- Harrison quit before Lennon did. New York is a hipper place for her presence. So to me, she is "bella," indeed, much more so than the vapid starlets I usually see on these blogs.

Yea I don't think she is either...plus she is rumoured to split up the Beatles in the first people and A LOT of people are not fans of her AT ALL...

I wouldn't call her a Bella Donna by any means. There are many other icons of the 60's that didn't wear makeup that were much prettier than her. She seems very manipulative.
