18 year old Florence Colgate won a nation wide contest and was named Britain's Most Beautiful Face.
According to judges, her face matches an international blueprint for the scientific definition of beauty. "Florence has the optimum ratio between eyes, mouth, forehead and chin, endowing her with flawless proportions."
What do you think of this contest and of the winner? Do you see any problems/issues? What do you think of beauty pageants in general?

She definitely is very beautiful.
But I hate contests like this...
What do they prove?
Were men allowed in the contest?
I don't mean to devalue her win all the same. She is very beautiful.

Yes she pretty, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Things like this just make girl's think they have to be one way, or their not beautiful witch is crazy.

Yes, she is beautiful, but beauty is subjective and in the eye of the beholder. Who are people to say that those without the optimal proportions for a symmetrical face or conventional features aren't beautiful? This is hurtful to women's self-esteem everywhere that we all have to conform to a certain standard of beauty when we are all beautiful just the way we are.

She is beautiful, but to be named the most beautiful person? I agree with sirenstarlight... where men and kids involved? people of all ages? What did it prove... it's quite silly.
|Pretty...yes...but not more beautiful than other women I know :-) on Apr 25, 2012 @ 04:21 pm|
Yes, she is very beautiful, but contents that are for beauty are misguided and hurtful to so many young girls. We are all beautiful in our own special way.

I think we put other women down when we give these "most" beautiful titles to one woman. Shes pretty but yes not everyone would agree shes the most and no one should be considered MOST as nobody is perfect and beauty shouldn't be measured.

I agree with my BFF siren starlight! To me she's pretty however i don't think she's the most beautiful , but what I find beautiful others do not which is a good thing otherwise everyone would be after my husband lol! Instead of a beauty pageant that focuses on looks I'd love to see an internal beauty pageant there are so many beautiful people out there that may not be beautiful until you get to know them then their beautiful personality makes there putter appearance appear to be even more beautiful.

Plus I don't want my girls to idolize others or wish they looked like someone else's ideas of beautiful I want them to grow confident and secure and by creating an image of "most beautiful" if they do not have same features they should feel imperfect?!?

But I agree - what a silly contest!

She's definitely pretty but A contest like that is ridiculous. And what's is a "scientific definition of beauty" anyways?
