His fine figure and noble mien dominate a room whenever he enters it.
He commands a praiseworthy first impression, even for the hard-to-impress Miss Elizabeth Bennet.
Of course, his proud manners may cause one to take pause about that first impression—but never his good looks.
Eventually, he is found to be as admirable inside as he is on the exterior.
With curly chestnut hair (which has a mind of its own), a firm jaw, a pleasing mouth (in non-Regency speak, kissable lips), an aristocratic nose, a questioning brow, dimples, and especially those marvellous chocolate brown eyes, Mr. Darcy surely vies for the most handsome Elizabeth or I have ever seen, even considering the stunning perfection of her cousin, Mr. Collins! With all the visible attributes of our JAFF fanon Darcy, it’s no surprise that Chayseland Taylor was my first choice for Mr. Darcy on the cover of A Most Handsome Gentleman.
Elizabeth might even consider liking Mr. Darcy if he were more amiable—and then she sees a whole world of depth of character in those chocolate eyes.
