Why are british women so hideous?

You don't see this in other ethnicites so I'm kinda curious.

A select few get a period of grace until their mid 20s ,if they are lucky, and then it goes downhill FAST. I'm not talking about faces only, their bodies overflow into some formless mass of blubber too. And the fashion, my god.

Is it genetics?Diet? An ancient Indian curse?

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Helena Bonham Carter, Elizabeth Hurley, Kate Winslet, Kate Beckinsale, Audrey Hepburn (British father), Nigella Lawson, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley come to mind immediately as beautiful. Others like Emma Watson, Emma Thompson, Emily Blunt and many others may not be supermodels, but they're very attractive women.

And those are white women who I presume to be ethnically British for the most part (I know Nigella is also Jewish). Since Britain is a crossroads nation with countless nationalities in the mix, it's hard to say.

If you are including British women of non-British descent, then women like Thandie Newton are world-class beauties, as well.

That raises an interesting point. Nigella Lawson is a good looking woman, but she's Jewish not British. CZJ is a good-looking woman yet she doesn't look British at all.

Of those women I would say that Elizabeth Hurley is the only one who one could very clearly identify as British and also call beautiful.

Kate Winslet, Emily Blunt, and Emma Thompson all have that very British 'oh, I've just sniffed gone off milk' expression on the face.

Beckham does have very British teeth.

I have British teeth, sadly. They're just so, so crowded.

I'm American, about 60% British according to Ancestry DNA, 33% Irish and the rest Scandinavian or Germanic.

It is an actual ethnic thing due, the theory goes, to British people farming grain for so long that they used their jaws less to chew meat and other chewy things, and so the jawbone shrank and left less room for all the teeth to fit into, so they end up crowded and crooked as they vie for space in the mouth.

Recent studies have shown that British people on average have superior dental *health* to that of Americans, despite the aesthetics. Americans just have straighter and whiter teeth due to more popular dental technologies, including standardized use of orthodontics and dental bleaching.

Is this true about the slight builds? It doesn’t seem possible that they would be smaller, but it definitely explains that fat, sloppy look of the stereotype.

I know Amy Schumer isn’t British, but she is a good example of this type. She isn’t huge, but her face and frame just can’t carry the weight.

My family is of Irish descent and huge and the Irish-American families I grew up around were most definitely not small-boned, on average. Quite the opposite. I would think the physical characteristics would be similar.

I am male but I have a very slight build and as a result, I can actually harbor more fat, body-fat-percentagewise, than a person with a larger frame and get away with it. I am certain of that. I think I have a higher body-fat percentage than my sister does, but she has a broad frame and literally "big bones"—her wrists are significantly thicker than mine are—and doctors always comment on my healthy weight and always cricitize my sister's weight and tell her she should eat more healthfully. She is more physically active than I am and she eats tons of kale, chard, etc., that she grows herself. It makes me feel guilty that doctors do this. If they used calipers instead of scales and their eyes, they'd know better.

It's really remarkable how differently we are socialized to see Asian women versus Asian men in terms of beauty. I wonder where that came from. There is no other phenotypic group of features that is so polarized. Asian women and men have effectively the same faces, but with long hair and makeup they are seen as mostly beautiful and with short hair and makeup they are seen in the West as mostly without sex appeal.

I think it's presentation. It is customary in much of the world for women to use cosmetics and many countries have very long histories of what is and is not considered appropriate. This goes from the ceremonial use of make-up in cultures as disparate as India, Nigeria and Japan to the use of cosmetics as simply a way to enhance appearance in Italy and France since the early renaissance. The US discarded the British disdain for cosmetics largely because of modern media - the Gibson girl of advertising and the film stars of the silent age. By the 1950s, the Avon lady was a perfectly acceptable way for a middle-class woman to make some extra money - and it created a culture of make up as a thing to be used effectively and for different complexions. This crossed the color barrier - Madame Walker, the world's first black woman to be a millionaire, had a cosmetics company. The British didn't start using make-up widely until the 70s, when a high-camp aesthetic was in fashion and they seem not to have been able to tone it down much in the interim. So either British woman wear no make-up or they wear too much of it and whatever they do wear they tend to wear inexpertly. Plum Sykes wrote a piece for a UK paper where she returned from LA to London after a spa treatment and make-over by a top Hollywood stylist. She was amused to find that her friends thought she looked great - but that the very thought of looking great they found off-putting.

And the media did make a big deal over the other princess' sister and we have the articles.

Of Britain's most famous '90s models one is not British or even white, the other has looked increasingly lower class with age.

I'm an American who lived in the UK and France for years. British women aren't style icons like skinny French and Italian women are, but they're miles better than your average American frau. Not only are Americans obese - of course - but we have lousy skin. Brits don't get acne like we do. Don't know why - maybe diet. So after acne glow has passed, Americans are stuck with pock-marked faces. Not a good look.

The most unattractive people on the planet are Irish. Eastern Europeans with the exception of ex-Yugos are also hideous.

See I'd have to disagree with everything you wrote, R112, and I lived in Europe, too, and traveled all over.

It's interesting how these conversations always go. British women just are poor dressers and seem to not understand makeup but doesn't mean they are ugly. Also British movies and TV tend to prefer less makeup and plastic surgery.

Off topic but I also find lot of West African and Indian women gorgeous with beautiful glowing skin and beautiful traditional dress. And when they're not covered up, Middle Eastern women especially Lebanese, Israeli, Algerian, Iranian and Egyptians are very beautiful though they don't age well as African or East Asian women.

It isn’t simply styling.

A lot of British women have an odd equine look to them.

Aren't Kim Cattrall and Gillian Anderson British? They're both beautiful. I don't like her, but I think Helen Mirren is an attractive woman. Queen Elizabeth was beautiful in her youth.

I know quite a few Russians, and a poster above is correct - they hit the wall hard after 30.

"Horse-faced" has been used in English for hundreds of years. Do any other languages have a similar common term?

by Anonymousreply 121March 25, 2023 4:13 AM

Whoever started this thread appears to think you can judge how attractive women in a country are according to their actresses. In the US, actresses are girls who were told they were pretty in high school. In the UK, actresses are girls who go to drama school and do Shakespeare in repertory theatre. In the UK actresses aren't chosen for their looks but rather their talent.

American actresses, being devoid of talent, have to rely on their looks to get jobs.

[quote]…Nigella Lawson, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley come to mind immediately as beautiful.

If we’re talking about appearance only, Nigella is quite lovely and Rosie is overrated. Off-topic, but I think Rosie is just one example of a model hyped up by the fashion industry as a beauty. Gisele is another. The public and the media fall in line with this hype because they believe the myth that fashion designers are the arbiters of all things beautiful.

Rosie has a strong manjaw—an androgynous feature on a woman that designers have been obsessed with for decades (see also: Gisele, Freja Beha Erichsen, Isabeli Fontana, Casey Legler, Rain Dove). Sometimes it works. Oftentimes it adds a masculine harshness to a woman’s appearance. Look what it did to Brooke Shields in her late twenties after her jaw became more prominent. Brooke as a teen had looks that probably would be viewed as beautiful by any generation.

Rosie has fat slug lips, another thing fashion designers choose ad nauseam. It’s the shape of the lips that’s more important, not the size. She also has a wide nose that makes her eyes seem smaller than they are.

Overall, her proportions are exaggerated and the fashion industry loves that. Rosie is striking in her own way, but her features are a bit out of kilter to be called beautiful, at least to me. Without makeup, it’s more obvious.

[quote] Americans just have straighter and whiter teeth due to more popular dental technologies, including standardized use of orthodontics and dental bleaching.

Actually, that's a little simplistic and very dismissive. Japan, Denmark, Italy all seem to have very straight teeth long before modern dentistry came along.

Your comment is funny because I agree that Helen Mirren is very attractive, and she has become more attract IMO as she has aged.

What's funny is that you say Russian women "hit the wall hard after 30," and though Helen Mirren is British, she's actually half Russian by heritage. Her real surname is Mironoff.

No she was not! Average at best, but leaned frumpy in the making. Definitely not beautiful if she were just a commoner.

I find them ugly on the inside. Very unpleasant, two faced, envious people, and I think it eventually shows on the face. I've lived and worked all over the world and have never felt as lonely as I do in Britain. It feels like the majority of people here are just devoid of basic empathy and compassion. There's a real mean spiritedness I don't see elsewhere. I spent a few months working in Miami last year, hardly a place people think of when it comes to the best of humanity, and yet almost everyone I met there was kind.

I think after documentaries like “My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding” caught on back in 2010, Irish Travelers became iconic, and British women started imitating their style. Hair, clothing, makeup…the Traveler look has forever changed London’s fashion world.

It's not that the British are necessarily uglier than the Americans. On the one hand, the US definitely has more of a body culture,, but on the other hand, the US also has way, way more morbidly obese people.

However, you're being led astray by the fact that plain people are allowed to appear on British TV.

R140 exactly. Actors in the UK get chosen according to their talent not their looks. Actors in the US get chosen for their looks alone. Most of them couldn't act their way out of a paper bag which is why so many British actors get jobs in American films and TV shows which actually require the performer to have some expertise in acting.
