Elie Saab celebrated the magic of femininity, with supple silhouettes and sequined details. A sea life theme dominated the catwalk with draped asymmetrical dresses, as well as deep blue colors. Corals were embroidered on delicate gowns making them shimmer. The creations were whimsical and dreamy, and would make any one wearing them transform into a royal mermaid.

The sea life and underwater theme seemed to also be present in Zuhair Murad’s designs. In his dramatic collection 80s inspired silhouettes and opulence flairs dominated the runway. Murad kept the theme subtle throughout, evoking the feel of the ocean with ruffled dresses and lots of blue. He is known to be more sensual in his style of dresses and that was shown with is sequined silk tulle pieces, and long figure hugging shapes.

Does this equation prove Bella Hadid is the world’s most beautiful woman? One doctor thinks so

DUBAI: US-Palestinian model Bella Hadid has been declared the most beautiful woman in the world by one doctor on the basis of an ancient Greek equation that measures beauty.

London-based cosmetic surgeon Julian De Silva made the claim using the so-called “golden ratio of beauty,” which found Hadid’s facial features to be 94.35 percent symmetric.

 

“Her eyes, eyebrows, nose, lips, chin, jaw and facial shape were measured and came closest to the ancient Greeks’ idea of perfection,” the surgeon wrote on his Instagram account.

 

“The golden ratio was a mathematical equation devised by the Greeks in an attempt to measure beauty,” he explained.

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

The Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi 2/10 #jdsgoldenratio @beyonce - 92.44% Beyoncé came in second place as she scored highly on her forehead and brow area. She looks incredible as she approaches her 40s. She had a near perfect score for her face shape. How is the Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi measured? The Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi originates from the European Renaissance. Artists and Architects used an equation - known as the Golden Ratio - as an aid during the creation of their masterpieces. Scientists have since adapted the mathematical formula to explain what makes a person beautiful. The length and the width of someone's face is measured and then the results are divided. According to the Golden Ratio, the ideal result is roughly 1.6. Measurements are then taken from the forehead hairline to the spot between the eyes, from the spot between the eyes and the bottom of the nose and from the bottom of the nose to the bottom of the chin. A person is considered to be more beautiful if the numbers are equal. Attention is then given to the symmetry and proportion of the face. To be deemed 'beautiful' according to the Golden Ratio, 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. #news#beauty#plasticsurgery#harleystreet#beautifacation#beautifulfaces#jdsgoldenratio
