While beauty is said to be in the eye of beholder, scientists believe there is one person who stands out above all the rest, having named Bella Hadid the most beautiful woman in the world.
The 24-year-old was found to be 94.35 percent 'accurate' to the Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi - a snazzy name for a measure of physical perfection that dates back to ancient Greece.
Bella's eyes, eyebrows, nose, lips, chin, jaw and facial shape were measured and came closest to the Greeks' idea of perfection.
Singer Beyoncé, 39, was second, coming in with a 92.44 percent match-up to those standards, while actress Amber Heard, 33, was third with 91.85 percent and pop star Ariana Grande, 26, was fourth with 91.81 percent.
Model Kate Moss, 47, - the highest rated Briton, in sixth place overall - had a reading of 91.05 percent, placing her well ahead of her rival and the UK's other most successful supermodel, 28-year-old Cara Delevingne, who was in 10th place with 89.99 percent.
The list was compiled back in 2019 using computerised mapping techniques by Harley Street facial cosmetic surgeon Dr Julian De Silva, who utilises the technology in his work.
Dr De Silva, who runs the London-based Centre For Advanced Facial Cosmetic And Plastic Surgery, said: "Bella Hadid was the clear winner when all elements of the face were measured for physical perfection.
"She had the highest overall reading for her chin which, with a score of 99.7 percent, is only 0.3 percent away from being the perfect shape. Bella also came second behind Scarlett Johansson for the positioning of her eyes.
"Beyoncé ran her a close second, scoring the highest marks for the shape of her face (99.6 percent) and getting very high scores for her eyes, brow area and lips.
"These brand new computer mapping techniques allow us to solve some of the mysteries of what it is that makes someone physically beautiful and the technology is useful when planning patients' surgery."
The Golden Ratio was a mathematical equation devised by the Greeks in an attempt to measure beauty.
These are the top ten most 'beautiful women in the world' according to their Golden Ratio scores:
Bella Hadid - 94.35%
Beyoncé - 92.44%
Amber Heard - 91.85%

Scarlett Johansson - 90.91%

Dr Julian De Silva pinpointed which stars had the most beautiful nose, eyes, eyebrows, chin, lips, forehead and face shape:
Nose - Amber Heard 99.7%
Eyes - Scarlett Johansson 99.9%
Lips - Cara Delevingne 98.5%
Eyebrows - Cara Delevingne 94%
Chin - Bella Hadid 99.7%
Forehead - Kate Moss 98.8%

But don't forget, guys - beauty comes from within...
