Experts also believe that the distance between the eyes and mouth should be just over a third of the measurement from hairline to chin. Colgate's ratio was 32.8 per cent.
Singer Shania Twain and actresses Liz Hurley and Jessica Alba have ranked among the world's most perfectly formed stars thanks to of the symmetrical proportions of their faces.
Thanks to nature and good genes, the blonde, blue-eyed teen from Deal, Kent has left these beauties in the dust.
Eight thousand entrants vied for the chance to win this U.K. competition.
The competition, called "Lorraine: Naked" judged contestants without makeup. Entrants were also barred entry if they had undergone chemical procedures or plastic surgery.
