Do you know ancient Greek used to measure the physical Beauty of a person through an equation? And as per this measurement, Bella Hadid is one of the most beautiful women in the world. So, how is Beauty measured? Stay tuned with us to know about this theory.
The particular relationship which describes facial beauty is the Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi. The Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi originally came from the European Renaissance. The "Golden Ratio" is a mathematical ratio of 1.618:1, and the number 1.618 is called "Phi."

In this measurement, the length and width of a person are measured, and then the length is divided by width. According to the Golden ratio for a person to be beautiful, the resultant should be nearly equal to 1.6.
Also, the three segments of the face i.e., from forehead hairline to a spot between the eyes, from between the eyes to the bottom of the nose, and from the bottom of the nose to the bottom of the chin is measured. If the result is equal, then a person is considered more beautiful.
Furthermore, to be deemed beautiful, the length of the ear must be equal to the length of the nose, and the width of an eye should be equal to the distance between the eyes. This measurement of the perfect face is calculated using the latest computerized mapping techniques.

Meanwhile, facial cosmetic surgeon Dr. Julian De Silva declared the supermodel Bella Hadid as the most beautiful woman in the world using this "golden ratio of beauty," which found the 23 year old's facial features to be 94.35 percent symmetric.
Moreover, the surgeon even disclosed the measurement of Hadid's eyes, eyebrows, nose, lips, chin, jaw, and facial shape came closest to the ancient Greeks' idea of perfection.
In the list of perfect faces, Beyoncé, 38, is close to Bella with 92.44%. Likewise, actress Amber Heard, 33, is in the third position with 91.85% and pop star Ariana Grande, 26, secured the fourth position 91.81%.
Taylor Swift (91.64%), Kate Moss (91.05%), Scarlett Johansson (90.91%), NataliePortman (90.51%), Katy Perry (90.08%) and Cara Delevingne (89.99%) are also in the top ten list.

What's more, the Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi was even used by Leonardo Da Vinci for the perfect human male body in his famous work, the Vitruvian Man. Leonardo also used this in his Last Supper and the Mona Lisa. Other artists including Michelangelo, Raphael, Rembrandt, Seurat, and Salvador Dali employed the Golden ratio.
Interestingly, the symmetry of the face only does not necessarily define Beauty. Many divas who are perceived as beautiful are usually not even close to being perfect in symmetry of the left and right sides. Not to forget, people with a perfectly symmetrical face appear unnatural, animated, or robot-like.
Well, physical Beauty is fleeting and passes with time. Only the quality of mind and soul, which include love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control, are the factors that define true Beauty.
