At high request, here’s a story on a new study that came to the conclusion that women consider ‘thin’ as their body ideal ad men, as cliche as it may be, ‘want curves’ – from Daily Mail:
These four body images, comprised of celebrities’ best features, reveal the staggering differences in how men and women perceive the perfect body. A new survey has gathered the preferences of both genders, creating ‘body beautiful’ composites using the physical attributes of the world’s most beautiful people.
It appears that women covet a ultra-slim boyish figure, while men lust after curvacious full hips and an ample bust. While women opted for the boyish hips of youthful Noah actress Emma Watson, 23, men plumped for the fuller curves of 34-year-old model Kelly Brook.
The biggest difference is in our choice of favourite face. Women aspire to the supermodel features of model Cara Delevingne, 21, with men more attracted to the softer features of actress Megan Fox, 27. Ladies admire the pert and perky breasts of Jennifer Aniston, 45, while men appreciate the fuller bust of US TV star Kim Kardashian, 33.
When it comes to hair, long luscious locks are a winner for everyone – but while women are enthralled by the Duchess of Cambridge, 32, their halves would love to run their fingers through 29-year-old Scarlett Johnsson’s mane. Women are less concerned than men about age when picking celebrities with admirable bodies. Gwyneth Paltrow, a 41-year-old mother of two, has the best toned tummy, according to other women. And 50-year-old Elle Macpherson – still known as The Body – came top of the female poll for perfect pins.
What do you think of the results of this study? Are such generalizations of beauty ideals beneficial?
