Remember last week’s post on how facial beauty is based on the ‘golden ratio’?
Well, funnily enough, Grazia has just reported the release of a new iPhone app which uses ‘golden ratio software’ to assess your beauty!
According to this week’s edition of Grazia, the app, named Model Potential, “analyses your mugshot and compares it to perfect mathematical symmetry” to find out whether you have what it takes to become a model.
“Famously, supermodel Helena Christensen’s face complies to this ideal. It’s in proportion.. and super-symmetrical,” explains Grazia. “Leonardo da Vinci is assumed to have painted according to the golden ratio, so it has an excellent pedigree.”
In addition to a snapshot of your face, the app, which was developed in conjunction with Select Model Management, asks for your name, age, height, waist measurement, bra measurement, face shape and eye colour before calculating your ‘beauty ratio.’
So for £1.19 you can check whether your face and body fit the golden bill. But don’t expect the results to be flattering; the staff at Grazia, who road-tested the app, were greeted with feedback results as acerbic as ‘average.’ Charming.
