Catherine Zeta-Jones for Elizabeth Arden
THE PERFECT FACE
WOULD you rather look like Elizabeth Taylor, Cindy Crawford, or Catherine Zeta-Jones. The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery has been busy asking its 2,600 members just who are the world's most beautiful people and the results have proved that our ideal of beauty has changed over the years. Whereas in the Sixites, everybody wanted to look like Liz Taylor and Paul Newman, a decade later Farrah Fawcett and Robert Redford took over as the couple with the world's most envied features. In the Eighties, Christie Brinkley's big hair and big glamour was the look we all wanted, while Mel Gibson made the ideal man. Then, as grunge began to take over the catwalk in the Nineties, Cindy Crawford's was the bemoled face we all wanted, while our men most aspired to looking like George Clooney. "Crawford was likely chosen by our members because of her flawless skin, attractive nose and recognisable lips," said Dr Steven Pearlman, president of the academy. Today, Hugh Jackman's is the name most often mentioned in the surgeon's office by men, while Catherine Zeta-Jones has the world's most desirable face. "Zeta-Jones has a short delicate jaw with small chin and nose, all of which are desirable for an attractive female face," went on Pearlman. (October 12 2004, AM)
