Later Victorian Portraits Catalogue
Sir John Everett Millais, 1st Bt (1829-1896), Painter and President of the Royal Academy; ex-officio Trustee of the National Portrait Gallery
Valentine Prinsep described his appearance in the 1850s:
I first made the acquaintance of John Millais at my father’s house about the year 1854. Tall, thin, and active, his eager, handsome face, his clustering curls of dark hair, and his keen bright eye – his whole presence – betokened a boyish energy which was quite remarkable. […] In the fifties no one could be less like the then received type of an artist than Millais. His clean-shaven lip and chin, and his whiskers worn in the fashion of the day (‘mutton-chop’), contrasted with the beards worn by most artists, while in place of the flowing necktie, open collar, and velveteen coat of the many painters, Millais always appeared in a long frock-coat and high-standing ‘stick-up’. In fact he looked like a successful and fashionable business man. 
The art-critic Walter Armstrong on Millais in 1885:
As we enter the studio Sir John Millais turns from an easel which faces us, and as he stands for a moment in the light streaming down from the great window, and peers into the darkness about the door, we receive an impression which we may try to record, for it is characteristic of the man. He has a great palette on his left thumb, and in his left hand a sheaf of brushes; in his right hand he holds the short briar pipe which has just left his lips. His dress is a white linen jacket, for it is a hot morning in July, and his whole attitude denotes that instant of inquiry, which, in an eager, impulsive nature, precedes either a warm welcome or a no less hearty repulse.
