We've all read about the scientific proportions for beauty: wide set eyes for one; Jackie Kennedy has been described by one photographer as having such wide set eyes they were almost on either side of her head. But there needs to be also that indefinable ingredient, is that where demeanour or mannerisms come in?
The truth is there isn't many people we will agree are beautiful. When I was working at the Evening Standard in London I was asked to gather at least six people (non actor-models) who were beautiful and ask them: "What is it like to be you?" The article never got off the ground because there was no consensus in the office on any of the people I found.
Is there someone in your life you would have nominated...or maybe that person is you?
