Antiheroism at its finest...

We were talking about symmetry and human proportions in maths last night. Apparently, I have the perfect body. My arm span is the exact same length as my height - I'm an exact square. See, your body is made up of similar lengths and ratios. The length of your foot is the same length as the lower part of your arm, from your wrist to your inner elbow. Your upper and lower knuckles on each finger are the same length as each other. Or all of these things should hold true, at least. I was the only person in my class who was actually exact with my height/armspan, most were a couple centimetres off. One was ostensibly an ape with a difference of 20 centimetres.

All this discussion lead me to also consider how, as humans, we're supposed to inherently find symmetry beautiful. And this is how many other animals view such things as well. The more symmetrical the butterfly or the peacock, apparently the more attractive to potential partners. Many scientists say the same thing about humans. So, the most beautiful people are supposedly the most symmetrical people.

I'm wondering if this is actually true. Nothing very scientific about the method. This is what I am asking: Who, in your opinion, are some of the most beautiful people in the world? (and obviously pictures would be useful).

Remember, however, that, contrary to other animals, we tend to separate beauty from attraction. You can think someone's beautiful but not find them attractive. And you can find someone incredibly attractive, but you would never say they are beautiful. I'd like beautiful people please!
