Does this celebrity REALLY have the world's most beautiful face?
As the age-old saying goes, beauty's in the eye of the beholder. And according to that logic, we should all have a different opinion of what beauty looks like, right? Wrong...or so science would have us believe. Think about it; ask the average person which celebrity they'd want to trade lips with, and they’ll probably say Marilyn Monroe, Angelina Jolie or Gigi Hadid (depending on their age!). With this in mind, London cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Julian De Silva, set out discover the secret behind this universal appeal, and in doing, just who possesses the most beautiful face in the world…
Using an Ancient Greek philosophy known as the ‘golden rule’ (a ratio that measures the size and distance between facial features) Dr. De Silva created a computer mapping program to analyse celebrity faces, and you might be surprised to hear the outcome. According to his algorithm, Johnny Depp should be crying into his kohl-smeared pillows (and not least of all for inflicting Transcendence onto the world). Scientifically, Depps’s ex-bae, Amber Heard, has a perfectly formed face. Well, 91.85% perfect, anyway. Kim Kardashian was hot on her heels at 91.39%, and Kate Moss closely followed with a very respectable score of 91.06%.

But Dr. De Silva didn’t stop at discovering the world’s most beautiful face. Instead, he used his program to calculate who has the perfect nose, the perfect brows, the perfect chin, the perfect forehead…well, you get the idea. And then, like something from Frankenstein, fashioned those features together. And you can see the results for yourself below. With Emily Ratajkowski’s full and luscious lips, Rihanna’s oval-shaped face and Scarlett Johannsen’s smouldering eyes, he created….well, something that looks remarkably like Tulisa.
