What makes a woman beautiful in a Chinese person's
eyes? Now we have a standard to follow.
The Beijing based Mirror newspaper reports that the ongoing International
Cosmetics and Fashion Week has just established a Chinese Beauty Standard.
Eighteen chapters, covering different parts of the body, are devoted to
elucidating the Chinese aesthetic.
According to the standard, a Chinese beauty must have an oval face,
willow-leaf shaped eye-brows and a mouth that curves upwards at the corners.
The length of a woman's eyes should be 24 to 28 millimeters, with a distance
of 35 millimeters between the two eyes.
A poll on China's web portal sohu.com has just elected
their list of the ten most beautiful Chinese women. At number one is actress
Vicky Zhao Wei.
