The notion of beauty and what makes someone beautiful has been debated for centuries. The Han Dynasty in 206 B.C. thought that large eyes were the most beautiful. Ancient Egyptians thought that women with narrow shoulders and high waists were the most aesthetically pleasing. It wasn’t until the ancient Greeks came up with a formula to calculate the perfect ratio for beauty, that we could have quantitative proof of someone’s beauty.
The Greek Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi, has been the secret formula of perfection. Now, modern day scientists decided to test the theory and found 12 key facial points, and used the ratio as an algorithm to find beauty. The Greek’s believed that symmetrical faces were the most beautiful, so when the faces of the women on this list were measured, it showed how they stood up to the Greek standards. With a group of women aging from 20 to 71 there are some surprises when it comes to the 10 most beautiful women according to science.
Of course, what would a list of beautiful women be if it didn’t include a Kardashian or a Jenner? That’s right, 2 out of the top 5 spots belong to a Kardashian/Jenner sibling, and it’s not hard to see why. Kendall Jenner takes the number 5 spot in this count down with a score of 90.18%. She wasn’t the only Jenner to get some love on the listen, even though Kylie didn’t make the top ten, her perfect pout earned a spot at number 3 most beautiful lips in the world. Not to be out done by her baby sister’s, big sis Kim K took the Silver medal of Beauty when she was named number 2 most beautiful woman according to science. Not only does Kim have the second most desirable face in the world with a score of 91.39%, her eyebrows are considered the most attractive eyebrows on the planet! That is one genetically gifted family!
Just because someone is young, doesn’t mean they deserve all the attention. Just ask Dame Helen Mirren, though she is the oldest on the list at age 71, she is far from the bottom. She has been a blonde bombshell since the 60’s, and nothing has changed. With a score of 89.93% perfect, she takes the 6th place prize, right behind Kendall Jenner. Hey beauty doesn’t end there, Mirren also takes the 4th place prize for most beautiful nose, and eyebrows in the world. She is aging like fine wine, and now she has science to back her up!
One woman on this list has been an icon of beauty since the 50’s. To no one’s surprise, Marilyn Monroe comes in at number 9 on this list of beauties. Though, she isn’t alive to acknowledge her win, her looks have been the goal of many women since her death in 1962. Not only does her score of 89.41% top the charts, but also many of her features place in the top 5 most beautiful in the world. Her nose placed 2nd, her eyes places 3rd, and her lips placed 2nd. Which goes to show, that Hollywood has been getting it right with their leading ladies for decades.
The number 1 most beautiful woman in the world according to science is none other than the gorgeous actress, Amber Heard. The beauty from Texas boasts a Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi score of 91.85%, and her features are at the top of not 1 but 2 most beautiful lists. Amber Heard is considered to have the most beautiful nose and chin in the whole world, which means the whole planet. It’s crazy enough to have one feature that makes the top of the chart, but two? That’s just selfish Amber. It’s hard to live up to these standards, but we are sure Johnny Depp’s next love conquest won’t have any issues with trying to fill Amber’s nearly perfect shoes!
