Aesthetic attraction is something that doesn't influence a person's orientation. A woman that feels sexual and romantic attraction to men and enjoys women's beauty from a purely aesthetic perspective is heterosexual.
I might be missing what you are asking, but, from a mans perspective of the opposite. I am male, and sexually attracted to both genders, but made a decision to only romantically involve myself with females. But, I can look at both females and males and think "wow, that person is very attractive" without it being a sexual attraction. So if you are asking about can a non same sex attracted person be attracted to the same sex without it become sexual (or... also becoming sexual but not needing to) yes, yes you can. Some would describe sexuality as a spectrum. Anything from "I am only attracted to certain types of women" - either because of cultural training, or experience, or... chemicals? (i mean... what is attraction) all the way to "I am attracted sexually and romantically to everyone". right? So what does it mean to be aesthetically attracted to women.... its like art. I love art. And some art I want to take home with me. But, I don't really want to kiss that art.
