Mary Ann Bevan
Mary Ann Bevan was born with a normal face and body, but suffered from acromegaly which caused her to grow significantly after reaching adulthood. This additional growth affected her facial structure, rendering her visage other than conventionally feminine. During her courtship with a circus giraffe keeper, she had an expertly applied makeover which was described as " out of place as lace curtains on portholes of a dreadnought" . She relinquished her quest for feminine beauty and went on performing as the world's homeliest woman.
