Cod-damn gorgeous! The chip shop girl who has 'Britain's most beautiful face'
Daily Mail ^ | 20th April 2012 | Paul Harris

Posted on 04/21/2012 5:42:32 AM PDT by the scotsman

'Leonardo Da Vinci spent a lifetime trying to paint one. Scientists and mathematicians have puzzled for centuries over what makes one, while cosmetic surgeons have amassed fortunes striving to create one.

And Florence Colgate? Well, she simply has one.

The 18-year-old student is blessed with what is described as the perfect face. It matches an international blueprint for the optimum ratio between eyes, mouth, forehead and chin, endowing her with flawless proportions.

In theory, that needn't necessarily cause her to appear anything more than symmetrical (in which department, incidentally, she is also faultless).

But the blue-eyed blonde's mathematical dimensions have just added up to success in a competition to find Britain's most naturally beautiful face.

Florence, who has a Saturday job in a seaside chip shop in between studying for her A-levels, beat 8,000 entrants to win the title. Contestants were judged without make-up and were barred entry if they had had plastic surgery or chemical enhancement.

Locals wryly suggested it was the sea air in the Dover Grammar schoolgirl's home town of Deal, Kent, which contributed to her success, or possibly a secret ingredient in Middle Street Fish Bar's chips.

But it is the scientific definition of beauty – not to mention a healthy portion of beauty genes from her mother – which gave Florence the crown.'

Ahhh.... Chip shop. I get it.

Too early.

I believe at 18, it is safe to attest to her guilt.

Verdict?

Is there a picture of her without makeup? And the “contest” didn’t include anyone who’d had “work” done.

Lips are a bit asymmetric. Her teeth don’t look too bad, so its good to see at least one person in the UK is okay on that score. Otherwise, quite fetching in a wholesome kind of way (which is good).

I’ve never met a dumb Pole. I’ve met some top notch Polish soldiers and priests though. I have a theory that Polish dumb jokes came from German immigrants.

ha ha... A fish, that’s funny, it’s exactly it. People who are into that “perfect face” trend have a problem, imo. Sometimes a little defect, like a downy lip, can make a girl look so good, as Tolstoi said. They are missing the forest for the tree.

That would not be surprizing. Georges Washington complained that the new 2nd generation German immigrants were dum as a rock and a threat to the nation.

I have the same reaction, but ....

Pictures are funny things. Turn this gal over to a professional photographer and snap enough shots, and you'll probably get some stunners. By the same token, most of our famous beauties are caught periodically in some unflattering pics, especially when they're photographed unaware, in bad lighting, and without makeup. The celebrity industry works hard to minimize exposure to those pictures and saturate the public with the drop dead gorgeous shots. I rely on the supermarket tabloids to know what our celebrities really look like.

This girl can probably take a much better picture. Whether she will is up to her, and might depend on whether she's attractive below the neck.

She does have a sort of “dictionary definition” beauty, though. I can see what they are saying here.

Very Scando looking, that is for sure.

Lovely eyes.

That's not surprising either. The Native Americas complained that the whitefaced man was dumb as a fish and a threat to the Indian people.
