Computed: The world’s most beautiful woman
The perfect woman may not exist in reality, but scientists now know what she would look like. The discovery follows five years of painstaking work by researchers at Montreal’s McGill University, who digitally selected and blended the best features of the world’s most beautiful woman, to create a single composite face, revealed here for the first time.
“We hope she will become the gold standard in female beauty,” said project leader Professor Pierre Kleb, head of the Department of Pulchritude. “We have named her Bernice, after an attractive graduate student I once knew.”
The hardest part of the work involved selecting Bernice’s features from the thousands of possible candidates. But Kleb is pleased with the final results.
“For Bernice’s eyes, we needed to look no further than the lovely beautiful dead British actress Audrey Hepburn, star of Roman Holiday and Breakfast at Tiffany’s.”
Kleb’s team spent six months deciding on the most perfect female ears, before finally choosing those of Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie as the best in the world.
The lovely Lindsay Lohan was selected as having the most perfect nose, while Bernice’s golden-blonde hair came from Jennifer Aniston.
The hypothetical super-beauty’s cheeks are based on those of Halle Berry. “Halle’s surname is Berry, but her cheeks are like two lovely ripe apples,” quipped Kleb.
And for a mouth?
“There we went old school,” said Kleb. “Our analysis showed that the most perfect mouth belonged to none other than Marilyn Monroe.”
The final composite, pictured below, has now been revealed to the public for the first time.
The McGill team will continue their work, to give Bernice a body that will match her beautiful face.
“I can’t say too much,” said Kleb, “but I will tell you that the left breast belongs to Scarlett Johansson.
