Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but in some cases, most of the beholders in question are in unanimous agreement. Just like some casino online games are especially popular among players, some people are widely considered to be drop-dead gorgeous – and speaking of gorgeous, the Daily Mail has just announced that Bella Hadid is the most beautiful woman in the world.
You might be wondering how someone’s beauty could be compared to that of millions of other women on the planet. After all, some people prize full lips, a small nose, large eyes, or certain facial proportions, but these standards can vary according to what each person prefers to look at. Well, it was cosmetic surgeon Julian De Silva who came to this conclusion using the science of the Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi.
The Golden Ratio is a means of measuring physical perfection that has been adapted from the same golden ratio that architects and artists used during the European Renaissance to create their flawless masterpieces. This numerical sequence has been around since ancient Greek times, and has also been used to determine the mathematical ratios of the spirals of seashells, nautiluses, fern sprouts, flowers and more.
Secrets of the Golden Ratio
Back in 2009, Professor Kendra Schmid appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show to talk about how scientists have adopted the mathematical formula in a bid to explain why some people are considered more conventionally beautiful than others.
According to the professor, to measure the ratio, measurements of a person’s face are taken and then used in a complex set of calculations to gain a single number and ranking. Schmid noted in her interview that in a ‘perfect’ face, the length of the ears is equal to that of the nose, while the width of each eye will also be equal to the distance between the eyes itself.
Based on this standard, Doctor De Silva has now named the 23-year old model as the most beautiful woman on earth, as her measurements fit the Golden Ratio nearly to a T. Following her on the doctor’s list are Beyoncé, Amber Heard, and songstress Ariana Grande, all of whom are among Hollywood’s most gorgeous leading ladies.
Bella Hadid’s Beauty Honoured
According to the London-based surgeon De Silva, Hadid is the clear winner when all of her facial features are measured together. He noted that the model landed a 94.35% score, which is extremely close to physical perfection. De Silva added that Hadid had the best overall reading for her chin, which scored a jaw-dropping 99.7%. That’s only 0.3% away from a theoretically flawless shape!
Beyoncé scored a very close second place, with her well-proportioned features weighing in at 92.44%. She was followed by actress and ex-wife to Johnny Depp, Amber Heard, who scored 91.85% on the doctor’s measurement scale. Ariana Grande and Taylor Swift featured next, with scores of 91.81% and 91.64%. Interestingly, Bella Hadid’s older sister Gigi Hadid failed to make the top 10.
Fans of Bella Hadid have rejoiced in the news, but Beyoncé’s fan base has not reacted as well to their Queen B being ranked in second place. Her fans quickly took to Twitter, saying that the cosmetic surgeon’s opinion and comparison of beauty should have been kept private and that the physical appearances of the two women were impossible to compare.
Either way, both women are stunning and highly successful, and are likely far too busy to be worried about whom is more attractive! Over and above this, it is very prestigious to be named one of the most physically attractive people on the planet, even if the number 1 spot is definitely taken.
