Deepika Padukone is among the 10 most beautiful women in the world, according to science.

The Bollywood star is the only Indian on the list, being placed ninth by a plastic surgeon who had reportedly used the latest computerised mapping strategy to apply an ancient technique called the ‘Golden Ratio of Beauty’.

UK-based plastic surgeon Dr Julian De Silva declared British actress Jodie Comer the world’s most beautiful woman as her facial elements equalled the perfected ratio.

The likes of Zendaya and Bella Hadid were in second and third place, respectively, having met the physical qualifications to be marked as the world’s most beautiful women.

Dr De Silva said: “Jodie Comer was the clear winner when all elements of the face were measured for physical perfection.

“She had the highest overall reading for the positioning of her nose and lips, with a score of 98.7%, which is only 1.3% away from being the perfect shape.

“Jodie also had the highest score for her nose width and length and she was near the top for the shape of her lips and the position of her eyes.

“The only element she was marked down for was her eyebrows which achieved an average score of 88%.”

The Golden Ratio of Beauty, also known as Phi, is a mathematical equation where formulas are applied to determine physical perfection.

It was first devised by the Greeks in a bid to measure beauty.
