They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But when it comes to science, seeing the beauty in everything goes straight out the window.
There’s a rather savage scientific calculation which depicts the most ‘physically perfect’ human beings - and I’m sorry to say, neither I nor you made the cut.
Instead, the most beautiful woman in the world, according to the Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi, is actually Jodie Comer.
You only have to look at the Killing Eve actor, 29, to realise that she was found to be 94.52% accurate to the physical perfection calculation - which is said to have measured the ancient Greeks’ idea of idealistic physical attributes.
According to the ratio, Comer’s eyes, eyebrows, nose, lips, chin, jaw and facial shape came closest to the ideal measurements with a score of 98.7% - just 1.3% away from being the perfect shape.
It’s hardly surprising that she claimed the top spot, but she did come up against some tough competition with the likes of Zendaya, Bella Hadid and Beyoncé all being compared to the calculation and were close to the perfect score.
The list of these scientifically beautiful women was created using computer-assisted mapping techniques by facial cosmetic surgeon Dr Julian De Silva, who runs the Centre For Advanced Facial Cosmetic And Plastic Surgery.
The Harley Street physician said of the winner: “Jodie Comer was the clear winner when all elements of the face were measured for physical perfection.
“She had the highest overall reading for the positioning of her nose and lips…Jodie also had the highest score for her nose width and length and she was near the top for the shape of her lips and the position of her eyes.
“Her chin is beautifully shaped and her overall face shape is really strong. The only element she was marked down for was her eyebrows which achieved an average score of 88%.”
He then went on to detail the other scientifically beautiful celebrities, adding: “Zendaya was a close second and easily topped the scores for lips with a mark of 99.5% and and her forehead at 98%.
“Bella Hadid was third, achieving top score for her eye position and her chin.
“Beyoncé was fourth, scoring the highest marks for the shape of her face (99.6%) and getting very high scores for her eyes, brow area and lips.”
The Golden Ratio was a mathematical equation devised by the Greeks in an attempt to measure beauty.
The idea behind the equation is that the closer the ratios of a face or body are to the number 1.618 (Phi), the more beautiful they become.
If you don't match up with the measurements, don't fret. They can't take away our brains... Yet.
