Researchers: Scarlett Johansson, Kate Middleton, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel have the ideal nose types for white females

ELLE Magazine's 14TH Annual Women in Hollywood Event - Arrivals

New findings published in the JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery journal concluded that the ideal nose for a white female features a slight tilt upwards. Specifically, 'a rotation of 106 degrees (columellar facial angle) was found to be the most aesthetic' -- while a nose that tilted slightly downwards of 90 degrees was found to make the face appear 'droopy.'

According to the The Telegraph, '[Scientists] used digital portraits of young white women aged 18 to 25 years, which were ranked online by almost 4,000 men and women drawn from the same age group. They were asked to compare photos of women with noses 96, 101, 106, 111 and 116 degrees to their face.'

Plastic surgeons claim that four well-known female celebrities fit the bill, according to The Daily Mail:

Scarlett Johansson:

Kate Beckinsale:

Jessica Biel:

The Duchess of Cambridge:

Kate Middleton's perfectly angled nose is also reportedly the most requested with plastic surgeons. An article published on The Huffington Post in January of 2013 alleges that 'Britain's biggest cosmetic surgery provider Transform reported ... that Catherine's nose was the most-requested celebrity facial feature in 2012.'

Published within the findings, the study's first author Dr Omar Ahmed of New York University said: 'Throughout history artists and scholars have been engrossed in the pursuit of capturing what constitutes beauty. ... To our knowledge this is the first population-based study to attempt to simultaneously determine the ideal NTP -- nasal tip projection -- and rotation.'

Ideal Nose Types for White Females? You've got to be kidding! Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. Your ideal is not ideal for everyone.

Yawn......Dear AOL, Thank you for attempting to make me feel shitty about myself first thing in the morning.

I have a largish, rather pointy nose. I have my fathers nose. Its what I see every time i look in the mirror. And when he is gone, my nose will be there to remind me of my parents. I wont be having any regrets today that i dont have Scarlett Johanssons nose. I wont be calling any plastic surgeons to have mine changed. We are who we are, and your ridiculous article isnt going to change that. Have a nice day.

What a stupid article. What is even stupider is that time and money was spent on this. It's a nose, for pete's sake.

Beauty is in the eye of the beer holder. After a few, all female noses look "ideal."

When will researchers have a study on the ideal noses for other races. I bet they run out of money before that happens.

personaly, if a woman's nose isnt perfect and her inner self is beautiful, no one notices the nose.
