Amber Heard has the most beautiful face in the world according to face mapping research

Dr De Silva and his team used computer mapping and research that incorporated the ancient Greek beauty ratio Phi to determine what made a face beautiful. This ratio uses measurements of 12 key markers to determine one's beauty, including the lips, nose, eyes, eyebrows, chin, forehead and facial shape – and The Danish Girl star matched it closely with 91.85 per cent.

Coming a close second was Kim Kardashian with 91.39 per cent, closely followed by Kate Moss in third place with 91.06 per cent.

Dr Julian De Silva's team used computer mapping combined with the Greek Phi ratio

"We have devised a brand new computer mapping technique which can calculate how to make subtle improvements to facial shapes," explained Dr De Silva, who runs the Centre for Advanced Facial Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery. "With this ground-breaking technology, we have solved some of the mysteries of what it is that makes someone physically beautiful. 

"After we had created the software and the algorithms for the key marker points on the face I thought it would be a good idea to test the system on some of the most beautiful women in the world and see if we could prove with geometry and science exactly what it is that makes a beautiful face.

Kim Kardashian came second in the results

"The results were startling and showed several famous actresses and models have facial features that come close to the ancient Greek principles for physical perfection. Amber Heard had a near perfect ratio of nose dimension 99.7 per cent and her chin was also almost perfect. Across the 12 key markers for nose, lips, eyes, forehead, chin and facial symmetry and shape Amber Heard had the highest combined score. 

"The Phi ratio of 1.618 has long been thought to hold the secret for beauty, but now with the computer mapping we can calculate how it applies to real women."

As well as having the overall highest score, Amber topped research for the best nose and chin. Meanwhile, Keeping up with the Kardashians Kim had the best eyebrows, Scarlett Johansson the best eyes, Emily Ratajkowski the best lips, Kate Moss the best forehead and Rihanna the best face shape.
