Who has the best legs in the world? According to the golden ratio | The Sun

THEY'RE all stunning in their own right, but, according to research, some celebrities have 'limb perfection'.

Actress Michelle Keegan has previously shown off her perfect pins in various glam shoots for fashion firm Very.

And, according to science, her body really is perfection on legs.

That's because a study by psychologists at Liverpool University and University College London found that the ideal leg length is 1.4 times the upper body – exactly like Michelle’s.

KATE JACKSON compares more stars to see how they measure up – and there's some very surprising results.

For instance, who would have thought that proportionally, pintsized popstar Kylie Minogue has the longest legs of them all?

Michelle Keegan

Height: 5ft 4in

Legs factor: 1:1.42

The former Corrie actress is a dedicated fitness fan and works hard to get those incredible abs and toned limbs.

At 5ft 4in she’s no skyscraper, but Michelle – who played Army medic Georgie Lane to critical acclaim in the BBC1 drama Our Girl – has the ideal body-to-leg proportions.

And that surely deserves saluting.

Kylie Minogue

Height: 5ft

Legs factor: 1:1.57

She may be small, but when it comes to the legs factor, Kylie is mighty.

The 52-year-old singer has amazingly long legs compared to her petite body – longer than the “perfect” ratio, in fact.

We first got a good look at them in gold hotpants in 2000, in the Spinning Around video – a head-turner if ever there was one.

Victoria Beckham

Height: 5ft 4in

Legs factor: 1:1.42

As a designer, 46-year-old Victoria knows how to elongate her lower body, using heels, flares and high waists.

But she’s also lucky her legs are long compared to her body, inching just over the “perfect” ratio.

Rita Ora

Height: 5ft 5in

Legs factor: 1:1.14

She's no stranger to a short dress or teeny bikini, and when you’ve got fab pins like 29-year-old Rita’s, why not flaunt them?

The singer tones her legs with tough workouts and previously unveiled the results of a £450 cellulite-busting procedure.

Nicole Kidman

Height: 5ft 10 1/2in

Legs factor: 1:1.4

She may tower over other Hollywood film stars – such as ex-hubby Tom Cruise – but Nicole isn’t the longest legged here.

Even so, the 53-year-old’s proportions are just like one of her hit movies – To Die For.

Alesha Dixon

Height: 5ft 6 1/2in

Legs factor: 1:1.5

The Britain’s Got Talent judge isn’t shy when it comes to showing off her own attributes – including her long, graceful pins.

Alesha, 41, who once released a single called Tallest Girl – is more than happy to wear mini skirts or gowns with daring thigh-high splits to make the most of her almost endless limbs.

And not surprisingly, hers were once named Britain’s Sexiest Legs.

Amanda Holden

Height: 5ft 4in

Legs factor: 1:1.4

We'd give the 49-year-old Britain’s Got Talent judge a golden buzzer for her tanned, toned pins.

They have only looked less than fab when she broke one one winter – and even then she rocked a plaster cast.

We're pretty sure fans of the former Page 3 girl tend to focus their attention somewhere other than her leg-to-body ratio.

But it turns out that 40-year-old Kelly has got much more up top than the average woman, in relation to her leg length.

Fine figure, fellas

RESEARCHERS have also found that the most appealing leg-to-torso ratio is different for fellas.

Men are thought to be more attractive when their legs are equal in length to their torso.

That’s good news for Tom Cruise. At 5ft 7in he was overshadowed by then wife Nicole Kidman, who is nearly four inches taller.

According to science, he actually has the ideal leg-to-body ratio. David Beckham, 5ft 11in, also has perfect proportions.

But at 5ft 9in Simon Cowell actually has proportionally longer legs. His ratio works out at 1:1.2. Lanky Peter Crouch might be nearly a foot taller than the Britain’s Got Talent supremo at 6ft 6in, but his legs are also 1:1.2.
