Just a take on the thread that has been set up regarding ugly men, any one find any ugly women attractive?
I'm going to have a think..
Was Margaret Thatcher one in her prime? Sandra Bernhardt? (I know she is gay) karen Brady I always think is odd looking but nice.

I retract HBC, you are right, she does have a lovely face!

DaDaDa · 17/06/2008 15:59

Just realised I meant Imelda Staunton I'm always doing that!

Tilda Swinton is incredibly beautiful (but not my type, just in case she's interested).

Bugger, got to do some work now...

Tamsin Greig not ugly but very attractive and striking (and funny)

scatterbrain · 17/06/2008 16:00

you know I was watching Corrie last night and was struck that Liz looks like Lilly Savage !!! A glamorous man in drag !

scatterbrain · 17/06/2008 16:01

I think a lot of the women mantioned here are what my nan used to call "striking" or "stunning" - so not naturally pretty - but really catch your eye !

BigGitDad · 17/06/2008 16:04

Oooh Liz, she has been under the knife hasn't she? She's too good looking for this thread though.

scatterbrain · 17/06/2008 16:09

Snort at first nose !!!

BigGitDad · 17/06/2008 16:12

Hmm, KD Lang does have something about her, real presence.

First nose ?
What number is she on now ? 2 or 3 ?

BigGitDad · 17/06/2008 16:16

I think it changes every week, she has a valve in it and increases or decreases the size as she sees fit....

There used to be some ugly newshounds, but they've been ushered out

Kate Adie, what happened to her?
Moira Stuart

sophiajane · 17/06/2008 16:37

Moira Stuart was rather beautiful imo.

BigGitDad · 17/06/2008 16:39

Princess Anne in her yoof? Strange looking but attractive?

OP posts:
sophiajane · 17/06/2008 16:39

Germaine Greer?

Sinead O'Connor (ok looked like a model but unconventional haircut to say the least)

Harriet Harman

Cherie Blair/Booth

MaryAnnSingleton · 17/06/2008 16:48

Siouxie Sioux

UnquietDad · 17/06/2008 16:49

It's difficult, because if they are attractive to some degree then surely by definition they are not ugly.

Interestingly a female friend of mine and I went through both our CD collections once, looking for unattractive singers - people who haven't sold themselves necessarily on sex appeal.

She found plenty: Shane MacGowan, John Lydon, Jean-Jacques Goldman, Bob Dylan... loads more.

But I could not find a single female pop/rock artist who I didn't fancy to some extent. Even just a little bit. What does this show?

sophiajane · 17/06/2008 16:54

Unquietdad, how about Janis Joplin?

fullmoonfiend · 17/06/2008 16:57

janis was not conventionally pretty and if she didn't have that rocknroll allure/style no-one would have looked twice. I mean, imagine her in a plain large t-shirt and hair scraped back into a bun....

EyeballsintheSky · 17/06/2008 17:27

How the hell did Kirsty Allsopp make the ugly list? DH would have your guts if he was reading this!

AitchTwoCiao · 17/06/2008 20:26

that's nuts. kirstie allsopp is conventionally attractive and i think would have been so at any point in history. she's lush.

DoubleEspresso · 17/06/2008 21:09

Am surprised that nobody has mentioned Mrs Beehive, aka Amy Winehouse.

MaryAnnSingleton · 17/06/2008 22:48

what ? she used to be when less grizzled

ravenAK · 17/06/2008 22:57

Oh but Siouxsie Sioux is bloody stunning!

How about Hattie Jacques?

Also dh claims that Felicity Kendal couldn't hold a candle to Penelope Keith (Good Life re-runs on earlier...)
