Ah, the age-old question. What is perfection? When it comes to looks, many women (and men!) strive to find out. When this rather interesting press release from cosmetic surgery group MYA landed in my inbox it really got me thinking!
The company surveyed over 1,000 people from across the country to find out which celebrities’ facial features were the most desirable. Using the data they collected, they came up with some images of the supposedly ‘perfect’ man and woman. Let’s take a look…
Is this the perfect woman?
According to MYA, the ‘perfect’ woman is a mixture of Cheryl Cole’s hair and eyes, Angelina Jolie’s nose, cheekbones and lips, Beyonce’s bum and legs and Kim Kardashian’s body shape…
What do you think? I have to say, I’m not convinced – if you think about it, merging together certain favourite features is never really going to result in one awesome package. Sometimes, your best features really stand out against plainer ones – for example, if you have a pretty ordinary nose (what is an extraordinary nose, I hear you ask?) and stunning eyes, then surely your eyes will stand out more.
I guess what I really believe is that beauty is entirely subjective – people have different opinions about what looks beautiful, and that’s just down to personal taste. Someone might love their friend’s nose or lips, but the person in possession of them might not be able to stand them.
In fact, I made a video about this subject not so long ago – What is Beauty? Feel free to take a look!
Just for the record, do you want to see what the supposedly perfect man looks like?
He’s a big old blend of David Beckham, Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp and Bradley Cooper. What do you think ladies?
