Facial Plastic Surgeons Reveal Top
Celebrity Faces Through the Decades

Catheine Zeta Jones is the face of the decade Through the decades, who did people want most to look like? Not surprisingly, Hollywood stars, supermodels and TV celebrities lead the list of facial features that we most often want to emulate.

The following information highlights the celebrity beauty findings from an AAFPRS membership survey:

The 1960's

Paul Newman and Elizabeth TaylorPeace, love, and wide eyes marked the sixties. Legendary actors Elizabeth Taylor (38 percent) and Paul Newman (42 percent) defined beauty during this decade. Taylor's porcelain skin and well-proportioned eyes as well as the defined features of Newman's eyes and lips epitomized timeliness beauty.

Fair Lady Audrey Hepburn followed Taylor with 26 percent of the votes, while the tall, dark and handsome Cary Grant rounded out the male category with 38 percent.

Facial plastic surgeon experts agree that facial skeletal proportions are the true determining factors when analyzing facial attractiveness. A well-proportioned face should be divided into equal thirds, with horizontal lines drawn through the anterior hairline, the brow, the base of the nose, and the edge of the chin.

The 1970's

Disco, bellbottoms, polyester and thick eyebrows characterized the seventies with icons Farrah Fawcett and Robert Redford both receiving 70 percent of the facial plastic surgeon votes.

“The seventies embodied leading ladies who had defined features like Meryl Streep and Cher,” said Pearlman. “But Farrah Fawcett's delicate nose and chin and well-developed cheek bones gave her the face of this decade, while Robert Redford's nose and strong jaw line illustrated why he was selected.”

The 1980's

Christie Brinkley and Mel GibsonEighties glamour; big hair and bold makeup represented the beauty ideal of this time. Model Christie Brinkley (49 percent) and actor Mel Gibson (33 percent) embodied the best facial features during this decade while Michelle Pfeiffer (38%) and Harrison Ford (30%) come in a close second.

The 1990's

The decade of minimalism, grunge and supermodels indicated a change in the ideal face of beauty. Fashion icon Cindy Crawford (40 percent) and legendary bachelor George Clooney (29 percent) symbolized attractiveness in the nineties.

“Supermodel Cindy Crawford was likely chosen by our members because of her flawless skin, attractive nose and recognizable lips. Clooney possesses a strong jaw and straight, masculine nose,” said Pearlman. Star Nicole Kidman came in second with 14 percent of the votes as did Tom Cruise with 22 percent.

The Present

Catherine Zeta-Jones (31%) and Hugh Jackman (26%) epitomize the current ideal faces of beauty. Charlize Theron (23%) comes in second and Lucy Liu (1%) gets only a small vote.

In the male category, Colin Farrell (21%) is right behind Jackman while Justin Timberlake (3%) comes in last. The present faces of beauty represent many features of the ideal. “Zeta-Jones has a short delicate jaw with small chin and nose, all of which are desirable for an attractive female face,” said Dr. Pearlman.
