Cod-damn gorgeous! The chip shop girl who has 'Britain's most beautiful face'
Daily Mail ^ | 20th April 2012 | Paul Harris

Posted on 04/21/2012 5:42:32 AM PDT by the scotsman

'Leonardo Da Vinci spent a lifetime trying to paint one. Scientists and mathematicians have puzzled for centuries over what makes one, while cosmetic surgeons have amassed fortunes striving to create one.

And Florence Colgate? Well, she simply has one.

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.

In theory, that needn't necessarily cause her to appear anything more than symmetrical (in which department, incidentally, she is also faultless).

But the blue-eyed blonde's mathematical dimensions have just added up to success in a competition to find Britain's most naturally beautiful face.

Florence, who has a Saturday job in a seaside chip shop in between studying for her A-levels, beat 8,000 entrants to win the title. Contestants were judged without make-up and were barred entry if they had had plastic surgery or chemical enhancement.

Locals wryly suggested it was the sea air in the Dover Grammar schoolgirl's home town of Deal, Kent, which contributed to her success, or possibly a secret ingredient in Middle Street Fish Bar's chips.

But it is the scientific definition of beauty – not to mention a healthy portion of beauty genes from her mother – which gave Florence the crown.'

In Poland she would be average.

She may actually be the average for her own population group. I once saw a demonstration of a computer generated composite of all the faces, female or male, in a group. I forget the circumstances of this display, but what struck me that the resulting "average" face was one of classic beauty. I'll bet that works for every racial and ethnic group it is tried with as well as the whole human enchilada.

I think the reason that most posters here are not impressed by her looks is because of her so-called scientific "perfection." Humans are attracted to the imperfect, I think, the unique qualities, the quirky. I understand the scientific point as to her symmetry, but for most men (and even women) that makes her merely average.

A Polish army officer once told me, “the reason you have Polish jokes in America is because we sent you the dumb ones.”

I thought of replying that the smart Poles were all exterminated in Katyn Forest, but refrained.

Anyway, this British gal’s cute no doubt, but she would IMO come up only average among Slavic beauties.

Let’s face it, all the most beautiful bits of her come courtesy of her Viking or Celt ancestors. The big hairy mole on her bottom is the only part that’s truly Briton.

Her left side does not seem symmetrical to her right. The left eye is thinner and the left corner of her mouth is a touch higher on her face than the right.

All-in-all...a pretty young lady.

Interesting, she is very beautiful. In portrait drawing class we were taught to measure the face a little differently than it is described here.

The eyes are half way between the top of the head and the chin. From the middle of the pupil to the bottom of the nostril was half way between the pupil and the chin. the mouth was half way between the nostril and the chin. The eyes were an eye width apart.

This was the ideal and everyone differed a little and that difference was what made you look like you.

Polish jokes were propaganda in England to ease the betrayal of the Poles to Uncle Joe. In the battle of Britain the polish squadrons were heroes and were huge celeberties. The government had to explain why their allies were being sold down the river so they started putting out the stories that poles were too stupid to govern themselves.

In that pic she looks Russian. Something about the eyes, nose and cheeks.

And among the fair-haired Nordic Russians, you find numerous extreme hotties.

My impression of Ms. Biel, compared to our little fishwife, is that Jessica’s eyes are higher and wider spaced, along with her cheekbones, and that her chin is slightly pointier.

None of this is to imply, mind you, that I am not hot for Ms. Biel.

I dated a couple of girls who I thought were picture perfect pretty when I was a young buck. Even my ex-wife was that pretty in her younger days. As pretty as they were, they did not rip me in half with desire. There has been a couple along the way that did, one of which was the one I really wanted to marry (not my ex). Sure, I like pretty. But that “to the bone” attraction and chemistry is hard to get past. . . at least for me, anyway.

She’s cute and wholesome but someone’s math is off. Her eyes aren’t the same size. Her hair doesn’t part precisely down the middle which means it either grows wonky or her head isn’t symetrical. Her eye brows are different. Her smile is slightly lopsided as is her chin.
