Supermodel Bella Hadid is the world’s most beautiful woman, according to an ancient Greek study.
Top plastic surgeon Dr. Julian De Silva has scrutinized the world’s great beauties, using the Greek Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi, and determined Bella has the edge over Beyonce.
De Silva found Hadid’s face to be 94.35% “accurate” to the Golden Ratio after measuring her eyes, eyebrows, nose, lips, chin, jaw and facial shape, stating: “She is closest to the ancient Greeks’ idea of perfection.”
In an Instagram explanation he adds, “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. The technology is useful when planning patients’ surgery.
“To be deemed ‘beautiful’ according to the Golden Ratio, the length of the ear must be equal to the length of the nose and the width of an eye should be equal to the distance between the eyes.”
They calculated the perfect face shape, including the size and position of the lips, nose, chin and jawline – with Bella’s features most closely matching the ideal ratio.
Her sister supermodel Gigi Hadid, 24, failed to make the top ten.
In second place was Beyoncé was who was a 92.44 per cent match, and taking third place was Amber Heard with 91.85 per cent.
Ariana Grande and Taylor Swift made up the top five, and the only Brit on the list was Kate Moss in sixth place, with a 91.05 per cent match.
Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman, Katy Perry and Cara Delevigne also made the top 10.
Dr De Silva, who runs the Centre For Advanced Facial Cosmetic And Plastic Surgery, in London, said: “Bella Hadid was the clear winner when all elements of the face were measured for physical perfection.
“She had the highest overall reading for her chin which, with a score of 99.7%, is only 0.3% away from being the perfect shape.
“Bella also came second behind Scarlett Johansson for the positioning of her eyes.
“Beyoncé ran her a close second, scoring the highest marks for the shape of her face (99.6%) and getting very high scores for her eyes, brow area and lips.
