Human beings associate themselves with everything beautiful. You are better off being good-looking than ugly. A person is likely to judge you more favourably and treat you better when attractive. When you are unattractive, you do not get enough attention from your peers and family members. Others can even consider you offensive or repulsive. But your fortunes can even change overnight if people describe you as the ugliest person in the world.
While many people go to lengths to change their appearances and look beautiful, the ugliest people have embraced their looks. Some have even enjoyed world fame for ugly, raised families and are happy with their lives. Others like Lizzie Velasquez have risen above cyber bullying and even became renowned motivational speakers.
Since nobody has looked at the faces of over 7.8 billion people worldwide, it can be challenging to know who is ugly and who is not. Thankfully, many publications can help tell you who the ugliest person in the world is in 2023.
Who is the most ugliest person in the world?
People have different ways of describing a beautiful person since beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. However, there is a considerable agreement across cultures and individuals about what makes a person’s face handsome and ugly. One thing for sure is that the beauty bias starts from the moment a child is born. But who are the ugliest people in the world?
1. Donatella Versace
Donatella Francesca Versace is one of the ugliest celebrities born on 2 May 1955 (age 66) in Reggio Calabria, Calabria, Italy. She is a businesswoman, fashion designer, and model. However, many people know her as the sister of Gianni Versace, the founder of the brand Versace.
Donatella is not as attractive as many people expect a millionaire to be in 2023 because of cosmetic surgeries. But even despite her age, she still maintains a spot among the ugliest people worldwide.
