Just because I saw these three stories today, and they seem like they should be lumped together in a single blog post.
A few different views of beauty. First, science has spoken:
Florence Colgate, 18, has the world’s most beautiful face, according to the Golden Ratio Facial Beauty method. Her face is also the winner of a beauty contest held by Lorraine Cosmetics and is said to have near-perfect facial proportions. The company claims to have the science to prove it.
Colgate has mathematically perfect looks, according to statistics reported by the Daily Mail.
Not only is the 18-year-old’s visage perfectly symmetrical, but she has the “optimum ratio” between her mouth, eyes, chin, and forehead.
This is Florence:
Sure, she’s pretty, but before I go kneeling at the Altar of Science I’d like to know where Catherine Zeta-Jones ranks, “statistically.”
On the other hand, People Magazine wants to know where Beyonce ranks:
…who is the loveliest of them all? Well, according to People magazine, it’s Beyonce Knowles. The new mom has been named People’s World’s Most Beautiful Woman 2012 and graces the cover of the mag’s new special double issue.
Sure, she’s pretty, but can she finish a NASCAR race in the top ten?
And finally, meshing science and fantasy together:
Valeria Lukyanova claims to be a real-life Barbie doll.
…Valeria Lukyanova has reportedly undergone several surgeries to get her perfectly carved figure, and many believe Photoshop has been used to alter her photos. While actually achieving Barbie dimensions is impossible, Valeria Lukyanova comes as close as it gets.
Sure, she’s…um…well, no, that’s just weird.
