Science has been able to tell us a lot about beauty: the six physical features men can’t resist, your most memorable facial feature, and now—which women are considered the most beautiful in the world and why.
It all comes down to an ancient Greek philosophy called the Phi ratio, which Julian De Silva, M.D., of the Centre for Advanced Facial Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery used along with computer facial mapping to determine which famous women have the ideal face ratio and symmetry.
While standards of beauty vary by culture, the ratio method is an interesting approach to aesthetics and may give us some clues as to why some people stand out more than others.
Amber Heard came in at the top of the list with a facial symmetry of 91.85 percent, while Helen Mirren ranked at #6 and Marilyn Monroe came in at #9.
