Swedish fulsnygg (adj.) (lit. ugly-beautiful)Having traits generally considered ugly/unattractive incorporated in such ways that it gives an overall beautiful impression.

Probably my favourite Swedish oxymoron. Often used when discussing the attractiveness of people not conforming to classic beauty ideals. Tilda Swinton, Lyle Lovett and DJ Qualls have been called fulsnygga. Swedish definitions: * https://svenska.se/tre/?sok=fulsnygg&pz=1 * https://sv.wiktionary.org/wiki/fulsnygg
