Humans come in all different shapes and sizes. And there's no doubt about it, some people got extra lucky in the gene selection process. From two different colored eyes to gorgeous freckles, these are some of the most beautiful people to ever walk this earth.
We know it's hard not to stare into this gal's dreamy eyes, but try to control yourself, people. Her opposite set of pupils is a result of a condition known as Anisocoria. It's characterized by unequally-sized pupils. As you can see, one eye is dilated, while the other is not.
You'd better believe that this woman has never had any trouble getting numbers with this little party trick of hers. Fun Fact: The legendary David Bowie also had this rare condition, and it's usually totally harmless to the person affected. You have to admit it, pretty awesome, right?
Like Fine Wine
This person has a rare skin condition known as a Port-wine stain. The discoloration in the skin was named after a red wine from Portugal known as Port Wine, because of their similar colors. In this image, the person has traced the birthmark with a pen, highlighting its awesome pattern.
This birthmark kind of looks like a map on his body, so if all else fails, this guy should definitely consider teaching geography. Apparently, only 3 out of every 1000 children are born with this pink-to-reddish mark, which is why he gets a well-deserved spot on our list.
Where Can We Get a Pair?
You might notice two things about the lovely Kate Bosworth. Firstly, she is absolutely gorgeous, and secondly, her eyes are two different colors. Pretty cool, right? But it's actually a genetic mutation. Indeed, Kate is yet another one of our Heterochromia subjects.
This actress has an even more unique condition known as sectoral Heterochromia, which means that a portion of her iris on one eye is a different color than the rest. It is usually hereditary and totally harmless unless it affects the hearing.
Just Nosing Around
This adorable little girl's name is Connie Lloyd, and she was born with a red mark that covered the tip of her nose. Although it looks cute, it was a benign tumor that turned out to be pretty dangerous. The doctors warned her parents Tom and Zara that she had to get it removed.
Doctors warned that there was a possibility that if she were ever to injure her nose, she could bleed to death. So, Connie had her tumor removed a few years ago, and according to her parents, she's one happy and healthy little girl. However, her mother Zara said that after the surgery, "She looked like a different child, but we knew it was our Connie."
Pretty Straight Forward
Now, this guy's hand is a palm reader's dream, and it doesn't take a genius to predict that his future is looking straightforward. You know how the inside of your hand looks like you have a map inside it? Well, the hand you see below only has a straight line, also known as a single palmar crease.
This is a condition that is found in about 1 out of 30 people, so of course, we had to add it to our list. Having a Simian crease can be, but is not always, associated with abnormal medical conditions such as genetic chromosomal abnormalities.
Yin and Yang
These girls have complementary birthmarks which should guarantee a life-long friendship. Birthmarks can sometimes be caused, either by blood vessels that did not develop normally or by extra pigment-producing cells in the skin. In this case, it kind of worked out perfectly.
What are the chances that these two best friends could wind up with matching birthmarks? People who were born with beauty spots or marks, sometimes feel embarrassed about them. But in reality, they are actually part of what makes you unique and they're beautiful!
Now, we know what you might be thinking. This guy clearly thought the wall would crumble if he punched it, but instead, his knuckles retreated back into his fist. However, this isn't one of those times. This guy was, in the words of Lady Gaga, born this way.
The condition is caused by a double-joint that makes it appear as if the knuckles are pushed in when the person affected clenches a fist. It's a rare occurrence, but if it does happen, it usually only affects one hand. So, before you feel too sorry for him, just remember he could probably throw one heck of a punch.
You know what they say - A face without freckles is like a night without stars. These bad boys are so beautiful that people have even tried to tattoo freckles on their faces permanently. Ironically, people born with them don't seem to love them as much.
Freckles are a result of both genetics and sunlight. So, those of you who are searching for that sunkissed look, you'll have to spend loads more time at the beach this summer. Pretty much anybody can have freckles, and if your parents have them, there's a good chance you do too!
An Extra Hole
Peek a boo! We see you. Some people are born with tiny holes on the outskirts of their ears. They are known as Preauricular pits, which is basically a natural piercing of the ear. While it’s possible to have them on both ears, they usually only affect one.
The small holes are usually harmless and develop on the ear in the embryo stage. The only concern is that they may get infected or a cyst could grow inside them, but other than that, they're pretty cool. According to research by the American Academy of Family Physicians, 5-10 out of 1000 babies are born with these little cavities.
This foot model has been gifted with a condition known as Arachnodactyly, where the fingers and toes are abnormally long. Also known as Spider Fingers, this harmless condition can actually be a huge advantage in life, especially if you're into sports.
If you're one of the lucky few who were born with these crazy long toes, then you, my friend, are even more unique than you realize. The chances of having this rare condition are estimated to be less than 1 in 10,000 worldwide. So, pull out your flip-flops and show the world your special talent.
The apple definitely didn't fall too far from the tree because this little princess got the exact same birthmark as her mama! It's safe to say who has the strongest genes in the family. While many have been dying their hair this color, this little lady and her mom have been rocking the grey streek naturally.
Little MilliAnna looks just like her mother, Brianna. And what makes her birthmark even more special, is that she is the third generation of women to get this beautiful streek of white hair on her head. This special genetic trait is something the duo has that's just too cute to handle.
Half & Half
If you look carefully, you'll notice that this eye is 1/3 grey, and the rest is brown. To think that some of us have been forced to live with one color in our eyes just seems pretty unfair now (thanks mom and dad). This gorgeous condition is known as heterochromia in the iris.
It is caused by variations in the concentration and distribution of melanin which is the pigment that gives color to our eyes or skin. Now, it's usually harmless but sometimes it can cause loss of hearing. You'll see an example of this further down on our crazy list.
A Frozen Touch
Wow, we feel cold just looking at this! While it may look like this person is wearing finger puppets, it is actually just a result of good ol' bad blood circulation. For a person that suffers from this, when it's a chilly out, the feet or fingertips can sometimes look a little white if they have bad circulation.
When looking at this picture, you can't help but wonder if this person has lost feeling in those fingers by now. People who experience chronic cold hands may have a condition known as Raynaud's disease. This means their blood vessels are narrow when they feel cold or stressed.
Get Your Gleek On
Just as the spitting cobra does when threatened, this guy does the same. Only some have been born with the ability to 'gleek'. Word of advice, be mindful of your friends who have this gift. They can shoot spit when you least expect it.
Gleeking is when you are able to squirt water or saliva from the glands underneath your tongue. Some people can do it on demand and control it, but others often find that they end up spitting at people in the face by mistake.
Thumb War Weapons
At first glance, everything seems totally normal, but if you look again, you'll notice that this person doesn't have a thumb. Well, they do, but it's structured like a normal finger. This person's unique-looking finger is known as a triphalangeal thumb.
This means that their thumb has three phalanges instead of two. So, it makes the thumb look like the other fingers. The person affected usually isn't bothered by this condition, as they were born with it, so they don't feel any difference. High 5 anyone?
Peace. I'm Outie
Calling on all our outie belly buttons, you cuties are rare! We all grew up with someone who had an 'outie' naval. The outie naval, or better known as an 'outie', affects around 10% of the population. It has been said that this happens when the umbilical cord is not cut properly.
But before you blame your doctor, you should know that it is 100% not his fault (Oops). How a belly button turns out, is determined by the way the newborn heals from the scar. Only 10% of the population have outies, so if you're one of the lucky buggers to have this feature, don't be shy, we want to see those buttons.
Looks like Christmas came early folks, take a look at this exquisite person. He has a condition called Waardenburg syndrome, which describes a group of genetic conditions that can cause hearing loss and changes in coloring (pigmentation) of the hair, skin, and eyes. The features of this syndrome vary amongst different affected individuals.
In this guy's case, his hearing was thankfully not affected. However, his eyes came out totally different, and patches in his hair are white. For all you folks who buy colored contact lenses just to achieve this look, this lucky man rolls out of bed this way. He has truly taken 'I woke up like dis' to another level.
Ok, now this one is crazy. Clasp your hands naturally and keep them in position. If you crossed one thumb over the other, it supposedly shows which side of your brain is dominant. However, if you put your thumbs parallel to each other, you fit into the 1%, and we've got some news for you.
You can do something cool with your hands! And from us here at Daquan, we wish you congratulations. Usually, when people clasp their hands, they cross their thumbs, so if you don't, that makes you somewhat unique. And that's pretty cool if you ask us.
For those of you born without wisdom teeth, our teenage selves are giving you a salty look, because you just can't even imagine how lucky you are. Most of us go through the pain of having our wisdom teeth removed, and although it's cool to eat ice cream for a week, it is one painful process.
Did you know about 20-25% of the human population is born with only 1 to 3 wisdom teeth? And a lucky 35% are born without wisdom teeth at all. While it may cause a dip in the tooth fairy's paycheck, it certainly relieves you from a world of pain.
This fancy-looking licker is a result of a condition known as benign migratory glossitis. But if you're in a hurry, you can also call it "geographic tongue." It is an inflammatory disorder that often appears on the sides or the top of the tongue. Although it can be painful at times, you have to admit, it looks pretty cool.
The cause of this condition has yet to be discovered. A few possible options have been suggested, such as stress, allergies, or hormones, but nothing seems to have been confirmed. The smooth white areas don't have papillae and form little 'islands' that are slightly raised.
To this day, scientists have only found less than 100 cases of the condition known as Hypertrichosis. As you can see, it causes abnormal hair growth in patches around the face and body. All we know for certain about this mysterious condition is that it is a genetic mutation.
You might remember seeing a young girl in the Guinness World Records book by the name of Supata Sasuphan. She also had Hypertrichosis and was labeled the hairiest girl in the world. She proudly admitted that "being hair makes me special." And we agree.
My Oh My
Mekhi Alante Lucky is a 23-year-old model that has given a whole new meaning to the words 'eye candy.' "People stare at me all the time," he said proudly. Well, we think we can understand why. Mekhi is yet another person with heterochromia.
In Mekhi's case, he was born with one blue eye, and thankfully, his hearing remained fully intact. However, he has the dominant gene, so this condition was passed down to his children. If you think Mekhi's beautiful, wait till you see his gorgeous daughter a few pages down!
Like a True Ice Prince
Individuals with albinism have, unnecessarily, been subjected to social stigmatization and isolation. Well, the haters better take a seat because these are some of the most beautiful people that have ever walked this planet. Just look at this prince over here.
Since she was born without the usual pigment in his body, he was blessed with light features. Such as his bleach blonde hair, his snowy lips, blue eyes, and his porcelain perplexion. We don't know about ya'll, but we just see Vogue Vogue Vogue.
Gimme 4, Bro
Nope. You didn't miscount, there are only four fingers on this hand. This is a unique mutation called Symbrachydactyly (scratching my head trying to pronounce it), where one or more limbs are missing from birth. The missing digits may have small nubbins that even grow a small nail as well.
Most people who have this condition don't miss the absent limbs and feel entirely whole without them. So, before you feel too sorry for this guy, you should know that he posted this picture with a caption that said this was his lucky hand. And we can definitely take his word for it.
Give Us a Chance, Please
OK, can you guys stop being so darn gorgeous? This young man has a condition called Vitiligo (just like the beautiful Winnie Harlow), which is a condition that causes patches of the skin or hair to lack pigment and turn white. As you can see, this guy has a striking beauty.
We sure hope this man is a working model because to hide a beauty like this from the rest of the world is simply selfish. Winnie Harlow admitted that for years, she was a victim of bullying. However, once she realized that Vitiligo actually made her even more beautiful, she has since enjoyed a very successful modeling career.
You may think the Redheads that you've met in your life are like every other person, but they're actually a pretty rare find! Our little orange friends only make up between 1-2% of the population. So, if you have a redhead in your life, show them some respect.
Research has found that having red hair is actually caused by a mutation in the gene MC1R. Also, the pigment responsible for making the bright color is called pheomelanin. So there's a lot more to it than just coming out orange. To say you have a hair color that you share with only 2% of the world is pretty awesome.
Nope, it's not just Lady Liberty who sports this unique look. Morton's Toe is a condition that results in the second toe being longer than the big toe. There's actually a good chance you've also got a little tootsie like this, a 10% chance to be precise. That's right folks, Morton's toe is super common.
One could say that the second toe is kind of stealing the big toe's thunder, but we're sure he doesn't mind sharing the spotlight. Morton's toe is usually pretty harmless, but for some people, it can be a little painful. Worst case scenario, a doctor may recommend toe shortening surgery.
X Marks the Spot
At least 3% of the population has a super rare condition that results in them having an X shape with the lines on their hands. Palm readers and some other religions believe that this is a sign of strong character. So, if you know somebody with an X in their hand, you might understand now why they always get the final word.
Whether they're wrong in their opinions or 100% right, one thing is for sure - they've found the value of X right in the palm of their hands. If you ask me, that is definitely enough reason to think that they're more righteous than most. Be patient with them, folks.
The White Streek
For many years, Rebecca Heckard was bullied for her beautiful birthmarks and congenital white forelock. "I even asked to be taken to the doctor's for them to cover my birthmarks, but nothing could be done," she said. Like many of our beautiful people on this list, Rebecca had no idea how truly unique her look is.
This condition is known as Piebaldism and it took Rebecca some time to accept it. However, she's finally learned to love herself for all that she is. She said, "Now I feel beautiful faster than I feel afraid, I know I can walk into a room full of attractive women and feel beautiful too."
Now, this girl may look like a fashion designer's dream, but Elisany da Cruz Silva actually acquired a dangerous form of gigantism. It was caused by a tumor that grew on her pituitary gland, resulting in her being taller than almost everybody.
For years, going out in public was extremely hard for her, she could feel how people were staring. However, once Elisany realized that her legs were the envy of all models, she found her confidence. In the picture above, she's enjoying a walk with her new fiance.
This beautiful little girl goes by the name of Mehlani. She is often stopped in public because of her big eyes and the fact that she looks like a real-life doll. However, what many people don't realize is that she has a rare condition called Axenfeld-Rieger syndrome.
Her condition affected the development of her eyes. Now, Although Mehlani's eyesight is still perfectly intact, there is a chance she will have to have surgery in the future. Either way, she will still be the cutest little doll with that adorable smile of hers.
Draw Me Like One of Your French Girls
Dermatographia is a rare (and remarkable) condition known as 'skin writing.' People who have it can scratch their skin, and a red, raised mark will appear for about 30 minutes. Most of our skin-writing friends draw on themselves all the time. Now, usually, it's harmless, but sometimes it can cause a rash.
There hasn't been any confirmation to suggest this condition is caused by genetics. However, it has been said to be a possible 'allergic reaction' to anything from stressful emotions to medication one isn't used to. If you have Dermatographia, it is advised not to draw on yourself (no matter how bad you want to).
Dreamy Eye Lashes
Wow, now we know those striking eyes might have stolen your attention first, but, if you look at the eyelashes, you'll notice that a small patch is white. Like our sexy Santa, this person has a different form of Waardenburg syndrome. This resulted in his eyes and lashes being two different colors.
Waardenburg syndrome affects the pigmentation of the skin, eyes, or hair. The person with the condition will often have patches of white hair or two totally different eyes. Unless it affects the person's hearing, it is usually pretty harmless. Those lashes are gorgeous right?
Two for One
If you look at the top of your head, you will most likely find that you have one clockwise hair whorl. It is usually positioned at a single point on the scalp. However, you might be surprised to learn that about 5% of the population has been born with a 'double-crown.'
There is still no evidence that confirms this condition is caused by something 'unusual'. It is most likely a result of genetics and is only noticeable with a short haircut. But it's pretty cool to think somebody got two for the price of one.
We told you she was cute! This little girl is Mehki's daughter. Meet the beautiful Brooke Lucky (and lucky is an understatement). Her father, Mekhi, passed down his Heterochromia genes, and as a result, her eyes came out a beautiful blue. There's no doubt about it, she's a daddy's girl.
Unfortunately, in Brooke's case of Heterochromia, it affected her hearing in both her ears. So, she wears a hearing aid all the time and lives her life being the happy little girl that she is. We are sure we can expect a lot from this future model, we're sure she'll follow in her father's footsteps.
Now That's Just Rude
It may seem like this guy woke up feeling extra sassy, but don't get offended. His double-flip-off is a result of a condition known as Polydactylism. It is a rare genetic condition that can appear in the form of an extra toe or finger.
This case, in particular, is truly fascinating because both of this man's hands have been affected. As you can see, he's got an extra digitus finger. However, it seems as though he's already found a pretty good use for them. Now that's how you make lemonade out of lemons!
Lashes for Days
This picture represents a person with Distichiasis. The condition causes abnormal growth of eyelashes. So no, those long dreamy lashes are not fake, but rather, a genetic condition. If the lashes don't interfere with the person's eyesight, it's pretty gorgeous.
You might remember that a certain Elizabeth Taylor was one of the people with this condition. She was born with a second row of eyelashes, and this genetic mutation is part of what made her beauty so striking. If you look carefully, you'll notice her extra rows.
The Lucky Thumb
Now, this one's pretty cool because it's such a mild case of Thumb Hypoplasia that you can barely even notice it. This condition causes the thumb to be underdeveloped. In the image below, the thumb has only been slightly affected. It's pretty cute!
It is a rare condition that allegedly only affects 1 in 100,000 human beings. This person's unique genetics resulted in them having one thumb fully developed, and the other missing a joint. Nevertheless, their sparkily manicure draws attention and looks great!
You Are Beautiful
Simone Thompson, a.k.a. Slick Woods is one of the many people who have Diastema. This common condition usually causes a space or gap between the two front teeth. Simone is another perfect example of someone who grew up being insecure about her unique qualities.
However, once she realized that her gap is part of what makes her beautiful, she found a whole new appetite for life. Slick is now a successful actress and model, best known for her unique beauty. So, if you have any special conditions, then don't be afraid to strut your stuff honey. You are beautiful!
The Ice Family
Now this family is just unfair. Meet the Markovás, and please try not to drool while you're getting lost in their eyes. Dominika has her daddy to thank for those beautiful icy peepers, and she's not the only one in the family that got lucky. Her grandad, her dad, and her brother all share the same beautiful feature.
The beautiful Dominika, or better known as Miss Slovakia of 2015, is a successful model (no shocker there) and makeup artist. You can only imagine just how much the fashion world loves this family. Especially Dominika, who now lives the life of a blogger and public figure.
Beauty Is in the Eye of the Beholder
This is another version of a port-wine stain, and it only affected Dominque in one eye. These birthmarks happen when the capillaries in a particular area are narrow, causing the blood vessels to clot together. The collection of blood is what gives off the red or pink color.
This birthmark is usually caused by a genetic mutation, and the severity of it depends on when exactly it appears. It can happen on any part of the body, and it's usually pretty harmless. Only 3 out of 1000 babies are born with this unusual birthmark, and it certainly makes Dominique that much more unique.
Not a Mommy or a Daddy's Boy
Ella has Jamaican, Italian, and Irish heritage in her blood. As you can see, she also has dark eyes, skin, and hair. On the other hand, her son Luca looks nothing like her (Except for those adorable curls, of course). His dad is responsible for the blue eyes, but as for the orange hair? We're still scratching our heads.
“I have two cousins with red hair, but that’s the only immediate family, both Christian, and I have with red hair – other than that, there’s no one!” said Ella. “You can see Luca’s hair from a mile off when we’re out and about, and people often stare because the two of us look so different.”
Cat Eye Syndrome (CES)
No, these are not the coolest contact lenses you've ever seen, but rather, another one of our incredible human conditions. Cat Eye Syndrome is rare, and it doesn't only affect the eyes. It also has no evidence of being hereditary. This is a genetic mutation and can happen randomly in a person's life.
This condition is caused by an issue in both the long and short arms of chromosome 22. In ordinary cases, a person has two of these chromosomes. However, with Cat Eye Syndrome, it can appear three or four times. That's why this guy's pupils make him look half tiger. Grrrrr!
The Queen of Dark
OK, it goes without saying, but we have to: Nyakim Gatwech is like a living goddess. She's best known in the modeling industry as The Queen of Dark for her beautiful complexion. In fact, it has been said that Nyakim has the darkest skin in the world.
Growing up, Nyakim was bullied for being different. “I told my sister, ‘kids are making fun of me because of my complexion.” She used to want to have her beautiful skin bleached! However, “I grew to love myself,” she said. “I’m not insecure about my skin anymore.” Well, we couldn’t be happier that she chose to stay exactly as she is.
Do You Want to Build a Snowman?
Whenever this person is confronted with a drastic temperature change, be it hot or cold, their ring finger turns completely white. We just wonder if they still have any feeling left in that boy, because from the looks of it, frostbite might take over!
This is most likely a condition known as Raynaud's phenomenon. The blood vessels tend to narrow whenever there's a temperature change, which makes it harder for the blood to flow. The bad circulation causes the finger to lose color, making it look completely white.
The Green Machine
Anastasiya Scheglova is already gorgeous, but there's no doubt about it, her green eyes totally steal the show. You may not think this is a rare condition, but people with green eyes only make up 2% of the entire population. Just like our friends with orange hair, these peepers are a rare occurrence.
Now, this is one beautiful condition to "suffer" from. Green eyes are considered to be one of the rarest eye colors a person can have. So, if you're one of the lucky members of the exclusive '2% club,' then you might just deserve a spot on our list too! Let us know.
It may look like she got these highlights done at a salon, but you might be surprised to learn that this lucky girl was born this way. Her white patches are a result of a condition known as poliosis. You see, she lacks melanin at the top of her scalp, so the hairs grow colorless.
The condition is usually totally harmless, and only appears in the areas affected. It can be hereditary but has also been associated with genetic diseases like piebaldism. As we've seen on our list, it also results in single or multiple white patches of hair.
Lucky Long Legs
La Östergren has to be the envy of all runway models. Her legs that go on for days are one of the first things you notice about the famous bodybuilder. You see, La's height is 5'8″, but the length of her legs is 3'5 ″ making them disproportionately long to her body.
Östergren endured a lot of bullying for being taller than her friends when she was in school. However, as she grew older, she learned to love and accept herself for who she is. La has since enjoyed a successful career in bodybuilding, and making everyone jealous of her runway legs.
Not Just Sisters but Twins
Marcia and Millie Biggs were identical twins the day they were born. However, as they grew up, Millie's skin became darker and darker. While Marcia's skin went lighter and lighter. "Other parents would stop me and say: 'Are they your daughters?'" said mama Amanda. "When I told them that they're twins, they were stunned."
“Other than the differences in skin tone, they look almost exactly the same,” said Amanda. “They are both absolutely beautiful, and they make me proud.” Non-identical twins occur when the mother releases two eggs at once, both are then fertilized by two different sperm. So, Millie took after her mom, and Marcia took after her dad.
Swirly Whirly Belly Button
We’ve all seen innies and outies when it comes to belly button shapes, but have you ever seen a swirly one? This person's mesmerizing belly button has got to be one of the coolest we've ever seen. With its perfectly spiraled shape, we're feeling somewhat hypnotized.
If you’re wondering what caused it, here’s an explanation: Much like those typical innies and outies, a bellybutton's appearance has got nothing to do with how the umbilical cord was cut. It's actually formed by how the scar heals. Who needs a belly ring when you've got such an eye-catching belly button?
Lighting Leaves Strikingly Beautiful Marks
Okay, so getting struck by lightning isn't exactly something that we should aspire to, but just take a look at this man's arm. Winston Kemp was struck by the electrostatic discharge – lightning (you're welcome) – and survived the whole ordeal, with these intricate shapes left on his skin.
These lines are known as 'Lichtenberg Figures' and are named after the German physicist Georg Christoph Lichtenberg, who was the first to study them. The patterns form when blood vessels burst during the strike, causing branch-like figurines that fade after a few days. This would totes make a great tattoo, don't you think?
Spreading The Love
Babies are cute, but this one is particularly so with this adorable heart-shaped birthmark sitting perfectly on the forehead. No matter how many diapers we'd have to clean, or tantrums we'd have to listen to, we're sure that once we see that heart, all would be forgiven and forgotten.
This gorgeous bundle of joy isn’t the only baby in this world who has been blessed with the love symbol. Another baby was born in Turkey with a similar heart-shaped birthmark on his forehead. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that his nickname was “Love Baby,” and hospital nurses couldn’t resist taking selfies with him.
Super-Cute Uncombable Hair Syndrome
Meet Shilah, the bubbly little girl who was born with soft, brown hair, but as she grew a few months older, her hair started to completely change. It grew straight up, and no amount of brushing or hair product could tame it or flatten it down.
Turns out that young Shilah has something called 'Uncombable Hair Syndrome.' It's a condition that generally starts in infancy but stops in adolescence and is typically characterized by frizzy, dry hair that cannot be brushed down. Luckily, Shilah knows exactly how to rock the look, and we're loving the sass!
Peace Sign on Fleak
We've all seen hands with extra thumbs, interesting birthmarks, missing pinkies, and differently shaped nail beds, but have you ever seen a hand with really long fingers? Take a look at this person's incredibly long index and middle fingers, which are also impressively flexible to stretch that far apart.
This unique attribute certainly creates an impressive peace sign, with the owner of these fingers saying, "I've been told my peace sign is unusually wide." While it certainly shares the love, fingers like these could also come in handy if you'd like to model a jeweler's latest ring collection. You could stack the entire range!
Getting Lost in Your Eyes
People born with Albinism are some of the most strikingly beautiful people in the world. This is why we don't blame you if you get lost in this man's eyes. It's no wonder some Reddit users thought they recognized these eyes on Game of Throne's Targaryen or the Night King.
These alluring pools of ice, which this man proudly gets to call his eyes, result from a reduced amount of melanin, or no melanin at all, which changes eye color and sight. Often people with Albinism will have pale blue, grey, or brown eyes. It all depends on the amount of melanin they have.
It’s A “Rad” Two Thumbs-Up
When this baby girl was born, she had an extra surprise on her hand – another thumb – and her parents say it's "Rad." As a baby, it must be amazing to suck on not one, but two thumbs for comfort. This condition is called 'Polydactylism' and results in one or more extra fingers or toes.
The etymology behind this condition comes from the Greek words, 'poly,' which means many, and 'dactylos,' which is a finger. There are three different types of this condition. Yet, in this instance, where the extra finger is on the outside of the thumb, it is called 'Radial' or 'Preaxial Polydactylism.' Try saying that quickly.
Perfect for Swimming
Michael Phelps lookout because this guy was born with webbed fingers, and we can't help but wonder how fast he would be in the swimming pool. The academic term for webbed fingers is 'Syndactyly.' This condition occurs when the fingers don't separate during the sixth to eighth week of pregnancy.
You'll find Syndactyly most frequently happening between the middle and ring fingers, but it can affect one's toes too. It also affects both hands in about fifty percent of cases and is not related to any other health condition. We’d love to see this guy become an Olympic swimmer because he’d probably bring home the Gold.
Stretch It Out
If you're looking at this photo and thinking, "where is this guy's neck?" well, the answer is in his mouth. The skin around his neck is "stretchy enough to allow [him] to suck on it with no hands.” Apparently, he can also stretch his neck skin over his nose, although it only goes “over the tip.”
While most of us can stretch our skin to a certain extent – especially as we get older and lose collagen – skin that stretches beyond the 'norm' is called 'Hyperelastic Skin'. With a condition name like that, we can totally see 'hyperelastic' becoming a superhero's name in a Marvel classic, can't you?
I Spy with My Little Eye, Something Beginning With "P." Can you spot it? No, it's not a planet from out of space; it's someone's incredible pupil. An eye pattern like this is caused by Persistent Pupillary Membrane (PPM). PPM is found in 95% of newborns and goes on to stay with 20% of the adult population.
This condition happens when remnants of the fetal membrane form strands of tissue that cross over the pupil. In most cases, PPM will go away by itself during the first year of life. Still, if it hangs around into adulthood, it requires little treatment and usually won't affect vision.
Uvula Times Two
Ever taken a look at your throat? For most of us, we’ll see one uvula – or as Cardi B aptly calls it, “that dangly thing” swinging around. Some people have two dangly uvulas hanging in the back. Although the correct term for this is ‘Bifid Uvula,' and it is when the uvula is forked or split.
In most cases, you can leave these two to swing around as there are rarely complications. However, in other instances where the split indicates a submucous cleft, there may be some associated issues. Reddit users gave this one a new nickname (obvs), with one user calling it "twovula.” Any other name suggestions?
Being Your Own Twin
Meet Taylor Muhl. A singer, songwriter, model, dancer, and advocate raising awareness for her rare genetic condition – Chimerism. Talk about inspiration. Chimerism happens when two fraternal twin eggs merge together in the womb, which caused Taylor’s egg to fuse with her twin’s egg. This means that Taylor now carries her twin’s genes in her body.
Since Taylor has her twin's genes inside of her, her torso shows off two different skin pigments, as she literally inherited the second from her twin. If you haven't realized by now, Taylor is complete #goals. She does a lot of body positivity advocacy work while still juggling everything else she has going on.
Thumbs Up 2.0
Giving a thumbs-up always puts a smile on someone's face, especially when it's this impressive. Behold, the ultimate thumb supreme who reigns over all the thumbs-ups in the world. This thumb delivers time and time again, the perfect thumbs-up that all thumbs can aspire to.
This guy has been blessed with a thumbs-up that most thumbs dream about. However, he didn't stretch it out himself; he actually ended up with a large thumb due to a condition called 'Triphalangeal Thumb.' Therefore, instead of having two phalanges, this thumb has three, which explains its' impressive length.
No Mascara, Just Natural Lashes
There is no mascara on this baby's right eyelashes, it's actually naturally like that. This baby has a genetic condition called 'Mosaic' or 'Mosaicism,' which happens when the body's genetics are created with two or more populations of cells. This gives different pigmentation.
Luckily, this condition does not affect the person's health, and all it does is add unique beautiful features. This baby will undoubtedly be the center of attention when she enters the classroom or walks down the street, and we honestly don't blame the people who will stop her and tell her how beautiful she is.
Introducing Chanal Tapper, and if you haven’t guessed already, she’s on our list for having the world’s longest tongue on a female. Don’t believe us? You can verify it in the 2010 Guinness World Records. Her tongue measures 9.75 centimeters. We have no idea how she can close her mouth.
Her party trick made her quite the celebrity, and FYI, although this is unconfirmed, Chanel can finish a popsicle in a ridiculously short time – probably half the time it would take us to finish one. She definitely doesn't shy away from showing people her unique feature, and we're loving the confidence.
Literally, nothing can stop Melanie Gaydos from breaking down barriers, facing her own insecurities, and turning them into something positive. This brave woman took on the fashion industry, and totes won as she's now a successful model – despite living with the condition that she could easily let define her.
Born and raised in America, Melanie has had a rare genetic disorder all her life, called 'Ectodermal Dysplasia.' This means that she has been unable to develop teeth, nails, pores, cartilage, and even bones. She says, "there are simply not enough 'different' people fighting to be in whatever spot or position." We have to agree!
Beauty Spots Making a Difference
Evita Delmundo was born with birthmarks dotting her whole body. Still, instead of letting society make her feel as if she wasn't good enough, she became a gorge Malaysian model who encourages women to fight the pressure of society's expectations of what one 'should' look like.
Evita recalls how "In primary school, no one wanted to be friends with [her]." She even considered having her beauty spots removed – thankfully, she didn't. She's now spreading positivity with quotes like: "There are so many types of beauty in the world. It should not be embodied by just one face or one kind of beauty."
What a way to make lemonade out of lemons. This woman was born with only four fingernails, which is why her index finger has the last laugh with these googly eyes. Her condition is called 'Anonychia Congenita,' which can result in a person having no nails on both the fingers and toes.
People who live with this condition generally have no nails or only some of their nails. If there's only a partial nail, then it's called 'Hyponychia.' Luckily, this condition has no other associated health issues, and if you have an imagination like this woman, you can pull off some pretty cool pics.
Breaking the Mold
Harnaam Kaur is a total IG Star. At the age of 25, she was the world record holder for being the youngest woman to don a full beard. She was bullied for years about her facial hair growth. Yet, it was something she had absolutely no control over as she suffers from Polycystic Ovaries (PCOS).
Harnaam has been raising awareness around PCOS as it’s more common than you think. “One in five women have polycystic ovaries, and lots of them approach me about how to counter the bullying and how to accept themselves. I want them to say: ‘Well, Harnaam is on the catwalk, why not me?’”
I Do Me. I Stick to Positive Energy.
Let that Kanya Sesser quote sink in for a minute. This powerhouse woman is from Los Angeles and was born without legs, due to a rare condition called 'Congenital Amputation.’ The most likely cause behind this is maternal exposure to teratogens during pregnancy.
Kanya hasn't let this stop her; she's currently earning a minimum of $1,000 a day working as a lingerie model. "I'm different, and that is sexy. I don't need legs to feel sexy," she says. She's a motivational speaker who promotes body positivity to the world, and she has also modeled for Nike, Volcom, and Rip Curl Girl.
Comfortable in Her Own Skin
Sara Geurts is a truly phenomenal woman. She is a Korean model who has never let anything hold her back. Not even 'Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome,' which affects her body in many different ways. One of her most apparent symptoms is her skin, and for years, this model felt embarrassed about how she looked.
Sara recalls how, in her younger years, her skin was her "biggest insecurity." She went on to say, "But now I think it's the most beautiful thing ever. Each imperfection you have is individual to you, and it tells a story about you and who you are, and the struggle and the journey that you have been on."
She’s Her Own Filter
Wow, isn’t she just one of the most photogenic people you have ever seen? She doesn’t need a Kylie Lipkit or plastic surgeon on speed dial; she's got the genes for all that. Starting with her button nose to her perfect nasal bridge and lips - it's no wonder she's a model.
Fashion powerhouses like Christian Dior have worked with her. While you'd think that Sunaina Limbu's greatest passion would be modeling, it's actually a being musician. "I think I have always been a storyteller. It's in my nature, it's in my blood, and it felt most natural to me to tell stories with songs."
Stereotypes? What Stereotypes?
Meet Moffy Gathorne-Hardy, the woman breaking the catwalk stereotypes, as she’s walked alongside Cara Delevingne and Kate Moss. The fashion world is literally obsessed with her looks. Moffy is unlike all the other models as suffers from ‘Strabismus,' otherwise known as 'crossed-eyed.'
“I think that the term ‘Strabismus’ is too scientific and makes it sound as if I have a condition that affects other aspects of my life. I have never seen it in those terms, as far as I’m concerned, I’ve just got a funny eye!” We love Moffy’s approach to life and how she keeps on challenging was beauty ‘is.’
“Everyone is Beautiful.”
Ilka Brühl inspires us every day with her strength and story. She was born with a facial cleft, and her nose airways were not properly formed. Ilka said that because of this, “the permanent natural moistening of the eye causes tears to always run out of the eye.”
Ilka spreads positivity, saying things like, "I think EVERYBODY is beautiful in her or his own way. There is only one way to be ugly: by having an ugly character." Drops mic, and the room erupts into cheers. Ilka has become a successful model, and through this, her confidence and body image has grown immensely.
Nothing Gets Toshada Down
Toshada Uma is making a name for herself in the Indian fashion world. At just four-foot-something, this model has gained popularity. However, not only for her looks but also for her advocacy work in raising awareness for 'Alopecia.' This condition causes either a partial or complete absence of hair.
Toshada hasn’t let her condition stop her. She’s co-founded a project called, ‘Altshop' which sells wigs and accessories, and she's become a blogger, stylist, and influencer. While she used to be insecure about her hair loss, she now embraces it. She accepts herself, encouraging others to accept and love themselves too.
Family Portrait Mode
This adorable photo shows an entire Indian family who was born with a genetic condition called Albinism. Their porcelain complexions are a result of the complete or partial absence of pigment in their skin. This family just looks too darn cute together.
Since their bodies don't produce enough melanin (the pigment that causes the color in your skin, eyes, or hair), they all have white/blonde locks. Usually, people with Albinism also have light-colored eyes, and we don't know about you, but we see a family of future models over here.
Eyeing Out Yves
Yves Dropper has us all dropping our chins to the floor in awe of how beautiful he is. We never knew someone could have eyes like that, and no contact lens will ever be able to recreate his look sadly. Yves' green eyes are some of the rarest in the world.
So rare that only two percent of the world can claim to have these gorgeous green peepers. As you can imagine, Yves became a fashion star overnight. To make you admire him even more, he uses his fame for good, encouraging his followers to join his anti-bullying campaigns. Perfection may just exist.
Leaving His Mark
Introducing Yvesmark Chery, a male model with a story. Growing up was never easy, and “some kids were really mean,” which caused him to question his beauty. Luckily, he now looks at the fashion industry “as a platform to tell my story. Being a male model with Vitiligo, I can bring a new perspective.”
Vitiligo is a long-term skin condition where patches of the skin lose their pigment, causing these spots. The affected areas generally appear as completely white spots and have sharp margins. Yvesmark Chery is not the first person to have Vitiligo. Still, he certainly is one of the first to challenge the fashion industry.
The Sky’s the Limit
According to her IG bio, Yekaterina Lisina is the "tallest supermodel 6'9, longest legs (Official), businesswoman and mother." This Russian beauty and former basketball player (obvs) holds two Guinness World Records for being the 'woman with the longest legs' and the 'tallest professional model.'
With endless legs, she's every fashion designer's ultimate dream to work with. Like many other people on our list, Yekaterina had a hard time accepting her height. Still, once she started to embrace it, she got a new zest for life and realized how she could use her features to her benefit.
Clubfoot to Normal Foot
This cute little munchkin was born with a condition called 'Clubfoot.' The term encompasses many different foot abnormalities. Still, in most cases, it involves the front of the foot being twisted inward and/or downward. The heel is also turned, and the arch of the foot is increased.
Clubfoot certainly isn't rare, although no one is entirely sure about how or what causes it. It is luckily also usually treatable, as you can see in the before-and-after reveal above. Can we just take a moment though to "ooh and aah" over those adorable toes?
Total Ice King
There are no words in the English vocabulary to capture the beauty of Shaun Ross, the American model who has taken over the fashion world. While his talents certainly have shone on the runway, he is also a recording artist and actor. The man does it all – and more.
Shaun also uses his fame and voice to raise awareness around Albinism. He said, "I'm trying to break down barriers. It's a message to people to be confident in their skin." He also has a powerful message for those born with Albinism, "It [Albinism] differentiates you from everyone else," and as we've already learned: That ain't a bad thing!
