The Golden Ratio: George Clooney rated the Most Beautiful Man in the World

We’ve known it for decades but science has confirmed it: George Clooney is the most beautiful man in the world, at least the world of celebrity.  London plastic surgeon Dr. Julian De Silva used the Golden Ratio to measure the faces of male celebrities rating them on a scale of ten by their score out of one hundred, with George Clooney at the top of the list with a score of 91.86. (But seriously, did we need science to tell us that? Just saying.

So how do you measure beauty using math? The golden ratio, or divine proportion is an ancient Greek mathematical equation based on “phi” or 1.618, where the sum of two qualities is equal to the ratio of the quantity as a whole.  Sounds greek to me, but generally it was used by the ancient greeks as a way to measure symmetry which they found to be the most perfect representation of beauty in relation to art, sculpture and architecture.  Ever noticed how ancient sculptures of greek gods are representations of perfect male specimens?  Divine proportions indeed.

So does this theory hold true to modern day beauty standards?  Consider the top ten list compiled by Dr. De Silva: no one would argue with the results, although maybe personal preferences might rearrange the ranking order. 

The Golden Ratio measures “beauty” based on symmetry which leaves out sexiness, personality, humor, or expression, all of which add to a man’s appeal, so while a symmetrical face might make a man beautiful it doesn’t replace a twinkle in the eye or an off-kilter smile.  Having such symmetry may have a great effect on achieving success in the world of celebrity, as even though most people are completely unaware of why they are attracted to a celebrity’s facial beauty.  It makes leading men more telegenic and photogenic, which means more screen time.  Of course a beautiful face won’t go far without being backed up with serious acting or music skills. George Clooney and the others in the top ten list have depth, charm, and talent, that combined with their symmetrical good looks is a winning combination. But being handsome, certainly doesn't hurt career prospects.

The Golden Ratio is ageless meaning the most beautiful male celebrity is 56 year old George Clooney, and we agree. Can’t argue with science.

Power Pout: The Dramatic Berry Lip

For some of us a natural lip, even in the summer, is just not an option.  I love the eye-catching drama of a deep berry lip that, depending on my outfit, can be the height of workplace pull-together sophistication, or night out drama.  There is a cinematic quality to a strong lip color that is striking and powerful while at the same time extremely feminine.  A dark burgundy lip emits strength and is a no-holds-barred expression of feminine power. 

This year’s take on this beauty classic means a matte complexion highlighted along the brow bones, temples, down the nose and on the chin, along with full eyebrows, brushed and filled in.  Skip the eyeliner and have a light touch on the mascara so your eyes don’t even try to compete with your lips.  Let your eyebrows be the counterpoint to balance the look. 

Find these products at Sephora.com

Shrinking violets take note: a power pout like this can give a woman a jolt of moxie so don’t be afraid to go bold. You might just find your alter ego.

Miami Swim Week 2017

Swim Week is here again and it is just as steamy and fun-filled as Miami Beach where the annual event draws buyers, customers, media, and editors from all over the world.  The models are back in force, castings are complete, and the beach is lined with gorgeous bodies all in anticipation of the shows, the media coverage, and the parties and events that accompany one of the most-anticipated events on the fashion calendar.  

The runway shows and accompanying trade show features international swimwear and resort wear brands' collections for 2018, and sets the trends for the coming season.  Many brands make their debut at Swim Week, exposing them to the media and buyers from around the world, placing them alongside established labels.  I can't wait to see what the new collections have in store for next year, as there is something for every taste, body type, and vacation destination.
