Both of them are definitely ugly
if I was forced to pick one I'd say the brunette morphing beats the blonde one on uglynness

overall I like the most Shakira, Jennifer Aniston, Frida Pinto and Blake Lively

Scarlett Johansson is not sexy at all
Cara De Levigne...well I've seen shemales who were prettier than her...

Now when men and women fight what is beautiful and not, what you all think about this?

And are those 2 models "very" different after all? Both has some similar traits.

As a woman, does this represent your ideal?

As a man, does this represent your ideal?
Ridiculous. I almost stopped reading when I got to the part where it says....."Men prefer the Dutchess of York........." I say complete hogwash on this. No straight man (who didn't get beat up in school) knows anything about the duchess of York.

Also, no man (that I have ever met) says they prefer Jennifer Anniston's forehead.

Ridiculous article.

Blake Lively has a huge nose. No woman I know would see a big nose as ideal.

I've always thought there's something so striking about the light/dark contrast. Like Elizabeth Taylor vs Grace Kelly.

Dark hair and light eyes make features pop and just the whole package. Especially facially. You notice everything -eyes, nose, hair, lips, etc.

Light on light everything kind of mutes together. Facially you

It is strange that the article would say men prefer a woman with a masculine-looking face while the women prefer a more feminine face. Biological studies have always showed men prefer women with feminine faces, and this is true across cultures. That's why neonatal features are preferred-- large eyes, smaller nose, higher forehead and fuller lips.

Men have become accustomed to more masculine-looking women and are responding to a cultural shift in women's beauty. It explains why men seem to prefer the "athletic" look in women now, versus the classical curvy figure.

When I was young I did a lot of drawing ,mostly female faces.
You could say it was an obsession it was high school.
I wasn't very good at it but you could at least tell who it was.
Often times I drew from imagination simply to see what would come out .
None of them had male features and none of them had big full lips, they were normal or average.
cheek bone was always conservative and broad in the face.
I've come to like Jennifer's face a lot more than I thought I would , but that's how people change.
I don't know the real Jennifer ,but I suppose it would be a kick to have the opportunity..
Angelina is too unhappy to enjoy her face . the few times she is photographed off screen.
Plastic smiles just don't do it. I like her action though .
For me the personality is a very big part of a woman's beauty.

I don't like either one. The lips are too full, and the faces just seem too symmetrically perfect. I like to see little differences or imperfections. I like to see a person with character.

I don't get the appeal to Jennifer Anniston. :shrug: I mean, she's attractive, but not enough for me to choose a feature of hers, especially her forehead.

Both composite photos look very off. The first has a much softer appearance. The second photo with the blonde hair and eyebrows... no.

I know what I like in terms of features. I like symmetry, high cheekbones, full lips, and a nice jawline (like the first example), and eyebrows that aren't too thick or thin. Since I have very similar features it's what I'm used to, and a lot of mixed/biracial women tend to have a similar appearance.

Ditto.

I still prefer a softer, more feminine physique.
