Society's Definition of Beauty by Ranking (GALLERY)
Flikr user Pierre Tourigny has downloaded an abundence of Hot or Not images and put them into a morphing program called SquirtzMorph to determine what society deems as the image of beauty. Specifically, he determines what an average person looks like with in each ranking catogory. For example, a 9.5/10 looks like x, while a 3.5 looks like y. He's also completed the same analysis by geography for Miss Universe and also for different ages. He describes, "These women do not exist. They each are a composite of about 30 faces that I created to find out the current standard of good looks on the Internet. On the popular Hot or Not web site, people rate others’ attractiveness on a scale of 1 to 10. An average score based on hundreds or even thousands of individual ratings takes only a few days to emerge."
