People say beauty is subjective, but that hasn’t stopped one expert from crowning Bella Hadid as the “most beautiful woman in the world.” 

Dr. Julian De Silva, a London-based facial cosmetic surgeon, gave the Maxim Hot 100 stunner the superlative title based on modern mapping techniques rooted in the classic Greek “Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi,” the New York Post reports. 

“[Hadid] was the clear winner when all elements of the face were measured for physical perfection,” De Silva told the Daily Mail of Hadid, who landed a 94.35% perfection score. “She had the highest overall reading for her chin which, with a score of 99.7 percent, is only 0.3 percent away from being the perfect shape.”

Beyonce notched a close second place with a 92.44 percent, followed by Amber Heard with a 91.85 percent. Ariana Grande and Taylor Swift rounded out the top five with 91.81 percent and 91.64 percent perfection scores, respectively. Curiously, Bella’s older sister, Gigi Hadid, didn’t make the top ten. 

Ancient Greeks used the equation in an attempt to quantify beauty, but it’s rooted in mathematics. Two quantities are in the Golden Ratio if their ratio is equal to the ratio of their sum to the larger of the two quantities. It appears in geometry and nature, and Leonardo Da Vinci famously painted the Mona Lisa in accordance with the Golden Ratio. 

Then again, no one needed to tell us that any of the women on this list are beautiful. Nevertheless, celebrate Bella’s new designation with some of her best ‘grams below:
