Skip to comments.Cod-damn gorgeous! The chip shop girl who has 'Britain's most beautiful face'

'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.'

I agree she is very beautiful.
There were two girls in my high school who were about as pretty as a girl gets. I recently looked at my old annual and I wasn’t dreaming. They looked as good as I remembered.
She’s clearly an English rose. Very pretty in a very English/Irish way.
You’re right about Russian girls: they can be so beautiful. They also (at least here in NYC) are very much into makeup and pretty clothes. A lot of them work in hair salons and other beauty industries.
I know a beautiful girl who sometimes looks to have a long face and at other times seems to have a round one.
I finally figured out that her face is right in the middle between the two. I think that might have something to do with her beauty, at least that is a theory I have developed.
What an insulting generality. It's true that some blacks are racist, but most of us aren't. No different than whites, or any other racial group.
If the generality doesn’t apply then you’re wasting your energy by being insulted. envy is universal and color blind.
Well, isn't that the responsible reply. I guess that absolves you of insulting an entire race of people.
Must feel nice to be as guilt-free as Obama. He's as pure as the driven snow, too. Just ask him.
Generalities apply in general.
That's a semantical fact. It's a tautology. You're argument is above my pay grade.
Interesting...so do I. And I'll bet you dollars to donuts that I've got more intimate life experience with black folks than you do. That is, unless you happen to be melanin enriched, like I am.
I know where this is leading, and it's nowhere good, because you didn't tell me that you should have said "most" black people in your first post. Would have been an easy thing to say, and it would have been correct as well, but you're now backed into a corner and you have to make yourself right.
I get it.
Got a pic of Hawkins sans makeup? She looks the professional model type so odds are she has been surgically enhanced.
That’s not to imply that your lass is unattractive but the contest rules would disallow that photo and perhaps disallow Hawkins as a candidate.
That goes without saying. Why you spoiling for a fight? Why are you running from your responsibility to not see a racist every gawdamn place you see a (or think you see a) white person?
I get it.
You get what? What is it that you "get"? What is it about somebody who says something like that? Hunh? Racist? Just like all white folks, right? Just like they always told you about us?
What is is about somebody who says "all flat chested women wish they had tits?" It's been a very long time since I met a black person who didn't hate a blond haired blue eyed man. It's been a long, long, time since I met a black person who even called themselves "black"; who didn't hate the fact that they weren't white cuz white people have never had a trouble in their lives, rule over everyone else and always get what they want.
What do you think "Black is beautiful" is all about?
I think I once lived in your world. But it's gone.
So you get what, Mr? What do you think you know about me? How black am I? What "knowledge" do you have that you dare not call "racism?"
Grow the fvck up.
I’m not totally convinced her lips are natural.
Catherine Zeta Jones is most hitworthy. Alas, I mean thankfully, Welsh, not a Briton.
You know what? I should have. You're correct.However, it does go without saying.
And this part "I get it" -- oh, you wonder why there are stereotypes.
what did the blind man say when he walked past the...oh, nevermind.
