Meet the girl with the ‘perfect face’

London: For centuries people have pondered over ‘the perfect face’, and a teenage student seems to be simply the blessed one. Florence Colgate‘s face 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. 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. The 18-year-old, 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.
