Bella Hadid has officially been declared the most beautiful woman in the world, just FYI.

The supermodel came top of the list, beating out her own sister, Gigi Hadid, as well as Beyonce, Cara Delevingne and Katy Perry for the crown.

According to the Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi – a rating scale of physical beauty the ancient Greeks developed using maths – the 23-year-old smashed it, with her features netting her a whopping 94.35% accuracy rating.

And her chin, eye position and forehead have been determined as her best features, according to the snazzy mapping techniques.

Beyonce came second in the list, ahead of Amber Heard, Ariana Grande and Taylor Swift.

While Kate Moss was sitting pretty in sixth place, with Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman, Katy Perry and Cara Delevingne rounding out the top 10.

Speaking about the results, Dr Julian De Silva – who runs the Centre For Advanced Facial Cosmetic And Plastic Surgery – explained: ‘Bella Hadid was the clear winner when all elements of the face were measured for physical perfection.

‘She had the highest overall reading for her chin which, with a score of 99.7 percent, is only 0.3 percent away from being the perfect shape. Bella also came second behind Scarlett Johansson for the positioning of her eyes.

‘Beyonce ran her a close second, scoring the highest marks for the shape of her face (99.6 percent) and getting very high scores for her eyes, brow area and lips.

‘These brand new computer mapping techniques allow us to solve some of the mysteries of what it is that makes someone physically beautiful and the technology is useful when planning patients’ surgery.’

Well, we think they’re all pretty stunning.

The pair called it quits two months ago, but appeared to have had second thoughts (again), after an insider claimed the Wasted Times star, real name Abel Tesfaye, popped up at the model’s recent birthday bash. ‘Abel met up with Bella last night for her third birthday celebration at L’Avenue,’ a source told E! News.

The new concept takes aim at those in the political centre

In Depth James Ashford

The so-called horseshoe theory that the far-left and far-right more closely resemble each another than they do the political centre has been around for decades, but now an alternative is gaining ground: fish hook theory.

Instead of a straight line, or a horseshoe where the two ends almost touch, the fish hook theory sees the political Left out on one end, and the Right bending around like a hook to end up close to the centre.

The suggestion is that people who are politically centrist are actually a lot closer to far-right politics than their “centre” label suggests.

How did fish hook theory originate?

Fish hook theory was developed in response to horseshoe theory.

Leftists unhappy with the suggestion that they are aligned to the far-right came up with the fish hook theory partly to satirise the horseshoe theory, but also because they believe the centre often does makes way for the Right. 

Or as California-based online magazine Pacific Standard puts it: “Centrists enable fascism with such predictable frequency that the Left has come up with an alternative to horseshoe theory: fish hook theory.” 

Leftists pushing fish hook theory argue that there is a strong intersection between centrist neoliberalism and fascism, and that the freedoms of the former can lead to the rise of the latter.

“Freedom from trade unions and collective bargaining means the freedom to suppress wages,” writes George Monbiot in The Guardian.

“Freedom from regulation means the freedom to poison rivers, endanger workers, charge iniquitous rates of interest and design exotic financial instruments. Freedom from tax means freedom from the distribution of wealth that lifts people out of poverty.’”

Is there truth to it?

The theory holds that because of the apparent proximity between far-right and the political centre, centrists are susceptible to adopting fascist beliefs and can pave the way for fascist rule.

“Centrists are the least supportive of democracy, the least committed to its institutions and the most supportive of authoritarianism,” says David Adler in The New York Times. “As Western democracies descend into dysfunction, no group is immune to the allure of authoritarianism - least of all centrists, who seem to prefer strong and efficient government over messy democratic politics.”

However, many commentators argue that far-right politics has elements that could appeal to people on the far-left as much as the centre. They point out that populism, ideological purity and a feeling of embattlement are common to the the far-right and far-left, but less prevalent in the centre.

“Call it tendril theory,” concludes The Week US. “Fascism extends its slimy feelers out to centrists and leftists alike.”
