Yes, I believe that's the case to a certain extent. People with taste in men's clothes don't name Ed Hardy studded T-shirts and square-toes Aldo shoes as the best looking items of clothing. They don't name Edward Green's shoes or a well-cut navy suit as one of the "ugliest".
My point is that what one chooses to name as his pick for "ugliest" or "prettiest" can be an indication of the person's taste level more than anything else.
