Magazine Creates the "Ideal Woman" and Brandi Glanville Chats Surgery [Weekly Round-Up]

It's not uncommon to hear someone say, "I wish I looked like (insert celebrity name here)."  In fact, using celebrity features as a reference happens quite often in a plastic surgeon's office. Potential patients will say they want Kim Kardashian's curves or Angelina Jolie's lips.  So, Marie Claire Australia took it upon themselves to put together a composite photo of the most requested celebrity facial features.     

The result?  A somewhat younger looking Faith Hill with Taylor Swift's hair...  Well, that's what I saw when I looked at it.

Marie Claire's Ideal Woman

The magazine gathered data from plastic surgeons and experts over the past 12 months to create what they say is the face of the "ideal woman."  (Though features such as skin tone, teeth, forehead size and brows were not included in the data.)  

Here is the rundown of the various features:

  • Eyes:  Anne Hathaway
  • Hair:  Taylor Swift
  • Lips:  Scarlett Johansson
  • Jaw:  Halle Berry
  • Cheeks:  January Jones

It's clearly up for debate whether this is the "ideal."  What about the lovely woman of color?  That's Halle Berry's jaw, but not her skin tone.  Understandably, this is subjective, and we would like to hear what everyone thinks.  Is there really an "ideal face?"

  • Leave it to the innovative Japanese to come up with some strange products that are billed as "alternatives to plastic surgery."  From a nose straightener to avoid rhinoplasty to a vibrating eye contraption used to avoid saggy eye skin, they are all bizarre, weird and ridiculously popular.  The Eye Slack retails for $127 vs. a $4000 eye lift.

  • Ashley Judd got some tongues wagging over her new look this week - an odd shaped puffy face.  The "pillow face", made famous by the likes of Madonna, is a symptomatic reaction to what experts say is too much filler.  But hold on, speculators.  It seems Ashley is just a bit under the weather.  According to her people, she has been "battling an ongoing, serious sinus infection and flu."  Her meds caused the puff.  Check out the video below to see what people were buzzing about.  [CelebTV, msnbc]
