Dr. Julian De Silva, a cosmetic surgeon, has used a scientific equation called the Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi to arrive at this conclusion.
Beauty is a subjective quality a person possesses. So when lists of the world's most handsome or beautiful faces are released, we can all agree to disagree. But apparently, a cosmetic surgeon has scientifically determined that supermodel Bella Hadid is the most beautiful woman in the world. And who can argue with science? Dr. Julian De Silva has used a scientific equation called the Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi to arrive at this conclusion. It is a score out of a hundred and Hadid has scored 94.35 percent accuracy to the Golden Ratio according to the surgeon, reported the Daily Mail.
Hadid's eyes, eyebrows, nose, lips, chin, jaw, and facial shape were measured and came closest to the ancient Greeks' idea of perfection. "Bella Hadid is a worthy winner with stunning facial symmetry and a chin only 0.3% away from perfection," De Silva explained and added, "She also came second for her eye positioning. She is one of the new generations of supermodels and could dominate the profession for the next decade with her stunning looks. Her biggest weakness is in the brow area." But what exactly is the Golden Ratio that was used to determine this?
The Golden Ratio is an equation that artists and architects during the European Renaissance used to create their masterpieces. Dr. Kendra Schmid, an assistant professor of biostatistics explained on The Oprah Winfrey Show that "thousands of years later, scientists adopted this mathematical formula to help explain why some people are considered beautiful…and others are not." These measurements are calculated to determine a person's beauty on a scale of 1 to 10 and use factors such as the length and width of the face, segments of the face that are divided horizontally, to determine the facial sex appeal. Most people score between 4 and 6 and Schmid says no one has ever been a perfect 10.
De Silva also put other celebrities to the test of the ratio as well. Singer Beyoncé came in second with 92.44 percent accuracy to the ratio. "Beyoncé looks incredible as she approaches her 40s," he stated. "She had a new perfect score for her face shape, but was marked down for her eyebrows and chin." Following Beyoncé is actress Amber Heard with 91.85 percent and Ariana Grande with 91.81 percent. "It is great to see one of the new generations of pop stars make the list," he said of the positions singer. "Ariana scored highly for her forehead and chin. Marked down for her eyebrows and the larger than average gap between the top of her lips and her nose."
In an Instagram post, the doctor wrote: "The list was compiled using the latest computerized mapping techniques which 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." Models Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne also made it in the top 10 most beautiful faces. Taylor Swift too made it to the list and the doctor stated: "Another star who has emerged in the last five years. She rates very highly for her chin and lips but was kept back by a low score for her eyebrows." He runs the Centre for Advanced Facial Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery in London.
De Silva put male celebrities to the test as well and concluded that "Batman and Twilight star Robert Pattinson is the most beautiful man in the world, according to science." In the Instagram post, he went on to state: "The 33-year-old actor was found to be 92.15% accurate to the Greek Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi - which measures physical perfection." The Witcher star Henry Cavill came in second followed by Bradley Cooper in third and Brad Pitt in fourth.
