Forget those touchable tresses. According to a team of US plastic surgeons, the Duchess of Cambridge has the perfect nose.
TIME Magazine is reporting that a group of doctors from the University of California at Irvine submitted photos of young white women to focus groups and online social networks, asking them to rate their attractiveness.
The result? “The ideal nose for a woman in that demographic is slightly upturned at an angle of 106 degrees,” reports the news site.
As a surprise to no one, Kate Middleton is in the lead for having the ideal nose, along with actresses Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Biel, and Kate Beckinsale. But let’s face it, women going under the knife are probably relying on the 32-year-old royal and style icon as inspiration, as opposed to another Hollywood celebrity.
“Throughout history artists and scholars have been engrossed in the pursuit of capturing what constitutes beauty,” the study’s author, Dr. Omar Ahmed, told TIME. In terms of searching for a beautiful schnoz? It has been “elusive and ongoing for decades,” thanks to standards of beauty changing for centuries.
TIME Magazine also reveals that the surgeons only looked at ideals for white women between ages 18-25 because “there’s a lot of data to work with,” adding “the study reports that this population is the most heavily studied in the rhinoplasty (aka nose job) literature.”
Impeccable thrifty wardrobe, that hair, and oh yeah, being married to a prince, it’s no wonder why so many young women want to be just like Middleton.
But seriously, is there anything she can’t do right?
