Beauty an older act

The Gold Coast Bulletin - - NEWS -

THE age at which peo­ple are con­sid­ered “most beau­ti­ful” is mov­ing closer to 40, re­searchers have found.

Sci­en­tists study­ing Peo­ple mag­a­zine’s World’s Most Beau­ti­ful list in 1990 and 2017 dis­cov­ered the av­er­age age of the celebri­ties in­creased from 33.2 to 38.9.

Michelle Pfeif­fer, then 32, topped the list in 1990. Ju­lia Roberts won the fol­low­ing year at 23. This year, the Pretty Woman star took the ti­tle again aged 49. She is the sec­ond old­est win­ner, after San­dra Bul­lock who won in 2015 at 50. The old­est, this year, is Oprah Win­frey, 63.

The US re­searchers also found a wider va­ri­ety of skin tones, with 88 per cent lighter­skinned stars in 1990 and 70.4 per cent this year.
