Sat, January 1, 2000

Judith Langlois and Dev Singh's research are mentioned in the January 2000 issue of "National Geographic" magazine in an article titled "The Enigma of Beauty".

Quotes from the article:

"What's an attractive face? It's a symmetrical face. Most iimportant, it's an averaged face...Extremes are off-putting and generally not attractive, Langlois says."

"Studies by psychologist Devendra Singh at the University of Texas show a preference for the classic hourglass-shaped body with a waist-hip ration of seven to ten."
