Celebrity Chin Proportions

1Gwen Stefani

Artists have been obsessing over faces for millennia. From the Ancient Greeks to Leonardo Da Vinci, they studied human facial proportions to create a standard for sculptors and painters to follow. The called this standard of beauty the “artistic ideal.” We compared some top celebrities’ lower faces (their jaws and chins) to the ideal proportions in this gallery. You’ll be interested—and slightly comforted—to know that many of today’s most beautiful (and famous) faces fall outside of the artistic ideal.
