Artist & Theme: Elaine Duillo’s Silver Blonde Heroines

She exists in the realms of Romance, Fantasy, and other kinds of fiction. You may see her on a book cover or in animation. The beautiful silver-blonde heroine. Usually, she has violet or silver-gray eyes. Daenerys Targaryan from Game of Thrones is an example.

I’ve never seen that lovely coloring in a natural form on a human in real life or on television. I don’t doubt that perhaps there are a few beautiful people in the world who bear this coloring, but in fiction, she is not as rare as you’d think.

She has graced many book covers. Artist Elaine Duillo painted quite a few of them. So many in fact, that I have a Pinterest page dedicated to them.

About Jacqueline Diaz

Old-School, retro, and vintage romance reads are my jam, baby! The good, the bad, the cheesy, and the sleazy! I have no shame about it; I love ’em! An auto-didact, amateur historian, and reader of romance novels since 1990, I hope to offer a unique perspective on the genre. As a blogger, you may know me by several names; here, I’m Jacqueline Diaz. I’m also the aspiring author of two works-in-progress, historical romances, The Savage Noble and What She Says with Her Eyes, which hopefully will be released in 2023.
