I searched for the Gypsy look online..this is what I got from Wikepedia
The Roma People (singular Rom; sometimes Rroma, Rrom), sometimes "Romany Folk" in the British Isles, often referred to as Gypsies (or Gipsies), are a heterogeneous ethnic group who live primarily in Southern and Eastern Europe, Western Asia, Latin America, the southern part of the United States and the Middle East. They are believed to have originated mostly from the Punjab and Rajasthan regions of India. They began their migration to Europe and North Africa via the Iranian plateau around 1050.
Traditionally most Roma spoke Romani (Romany), an Indo-Aryan language. Today, however, most Roma speak the dominant language of their region of residence.
