How's this for a definition of Beauty?
"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. [...] Experts also believe the relative distance between eyes and mouth should be just over a third of the measurement from hairline to chin."
"The 18-year-old student is blessed with what is described as the perfect face. It matches an international blueprint for the optimum ratio between eyes, mouth, forehead and chin, endowing her with flawless proportions. [...] And to top it off, Florence's face is almost perfectly symmetrical, which is also scientifically linked with beauty."
This Daily Mail article caught my eye this morning.
Don't get me wrong - she's a stunner - but I was always led to believe that beauty can be found in the differences and imperfections. Julia Roberts' mouth, Tina Fey's scar, Jewel's crooked teeth...
"perfect proportions" - could this be another way the media is setting an unachievable standard for beauty?
