>>98332175>>brittney's not said nor implied to be ugly
But we don't have to be told she's ugly, because we can see it by looking at her that Brittney has an ugly face. And that fits with everything else about her: she's the stereotypical "rich bitch" character who buys her way to being the most popular girl in school...but Star is far richer and also becomes more popular without even trying. To the point that Brittney's own implied boyfriend ends up with "Star Butterfly rules!" as his catchphrase.
That drawing is from the guide is specifically described as looking nothing like Star because Marco isn't a good artist.
Tom's "clean up nicely" comment fits with his being a manipulative asshole who wants Star to think he's her own option, thus giving her only a backhanded compliment.
Ferguson said she looked awful because she'd gone without sleep for 2 days straight.
