How the GUI looks isn't dependent on the Distro itself, but the configuration of the GUI your using. Have you tried looking at sites like or something like that.. I think that's the site. Try, its your Linux search friend.

Slackware is a clean and fast dist. No hokus pokus
If you need a fast WM, check everything but kde and gnome, f.eks, fluxbox.
For eyecandy, I would consider gnome with dropline or enlightenment...

PS: fluxbox is kinda hard to get into, but its the most tweakable windowmanager..
