Scientists have agreed that Florence Colgate has the most perfect face, which has landed her a spot on billboards across England. Some however may be curious to ask if they themselves aren't "the fairest of them all."
The 18-year-old British girl has a nearly perfect symmetrical face, based on ratio figures that were collected by researchers. Some however, may be curious as to how a group of researchers using calculators can determine a person's beauty.
A common quote says that "beauty is in the eye of the beholder," which logically means that the person who attracts the most amount of people would be considered the most beautiful.
Based on the symmetry of Colgate's face among others who also entered the Lorraine Cosmetics contest in search of the most beautiful woman in Britain, the 18-year-old had the strongest chance of attracting the most people due to the symmetry of her face.
The numbers are based on something called the Fibonacci sequence or rather, "The Golden Ratio." The concept is not new to many, who, for centuries, have explored the mysterious number. From Michelangelo to Leonardo DaVinci, many great men have developed their work based on this golden number.
What's more is that this sequence also occurs naturally in nearly everything that nature has created.
"This is largely because one of the best ways to efficiently pack things tightly together is using the Fibonacci sequence," the site InMath.com explained.
This could explain why the ratio is so attractive to humans. Reports have suggested that Colgate has one very symmetrical face.
"A woman's face is said to be most attractive when the space between her pupils is just under half the width of her face from ear to ear. Florence scores a 44 per cent ratio," Mail Online reported. "Experts also believe the relative distance between eyes and mouth should be just over a third of the measurement from hairline to chin. Florence's ratio is 32.8 per cent."
A celebrity who also has reportedly symmetrical features is Jessica Simpson, according to InMath which offered a demonstration. Tommer Layvand has also developed a site which takes average faces, and makes them symmetrical according to the golden ration in order to demonstrate how the faces become more attractive.
For those aching to see if their face is more symmetrical, and thus more beautiful than Colgate or Simpson, Symmeter allows users to upload photos of themselves and then calculates the symmetry of one's face.
