Two Australian scientists have developed a new program which can determine if you are beautiful or not. The program uses facial measurements and compares your face to those of more than 200 images of models and actors. "They gathered 215 images of women of different ages, levels of attractiveness and origins, including photographs of Claudia Schiffer (pictured), Kate Moss and Catherine Zeta-Jones. The images were shown to a mixed gender, multi-racial panel of 50 volunteers who gave each face a rating of between one and 10. Using a digital pictures, anyone can now ask for the software's opinion regarding their level of beauty in just a matter of seconds."

The scientists suggest that potential applications exist in the entertainment industry, cosmetics and plastic surgery.
