Chinese Beauty Standard Released
2005-10-14 11:24:01    CRIENGLISH.com
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.
