One in three men fancy curvy celebs over size zero’s, new poll reveals
Thursday, February 13th, 2014
Curvaceous blond Holly Willoughby topped the most wanted female celebrity Valentines date this year, drawing in over a third of the nation’s male votes according to a new survey.
Closely behind Holly, it appears almost a quarter (23%) of males wish for an intimate date with the beautiful blue-eyed, dark haired Katy Perry.
And famous for her hairstyle, being the girl next door and once married to Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston polled the third most desired celebrity date, taking almost a fifth of male votes.
However, the former glamour model Katie Price gained no votes at all. Male respondents branded her look having “tacky hair extensions, over-bleached hair, piled on makeup and far too skinny.”
Beyonce Knowles and Tulisa Contostavlos unexpectedly received no votes too, with males surveyed choosing the wish to date stars Rhianna, Michelle Keegan and Cheryl Cole over them.
And very surprising after all the hype over her bottom back in 2011, only three per cent of male voters polled Pippa Middleton to be their most favourable Valentine.
The recent poll by natural mineral makeup brand zaomakeup.co.uk surveyed 1000 male and females to explore the types of looks our opposite sex are most attracted too and desire to date on Valentine’s Day.
Topping the most wanted male Valentines date poll came no surprise, pulling in over a quarter of female votes for the number one spot was football favourite David Beckham.
“David Beckham is talented, absolutely gorgeous and comes across a down to earth doting dad, who wouldn’t want not to date him, I think he’d be a true gentleman.” says one female respondent.
Closely behind with almost a quarter of female voters (24.6%) stating they would most like to date the “tall, dark and handsome” Johnny Depp.
The silver fox George Clooney has obviously still got what it takes to attract the ladies, taking just under a fifth of female votes. “I think George Clooney is handsome, his greying hair makes him even more attractive, I would prefer greying to balding any day.” says a female respondent.
Surprisingly, Harry Styles, Pharrell Williams and Robert Pattinson only gained just over one per cent of votes. It seems most ladies have a preference to the more mature tall and handsome, men.
Natalie Van Kleef, Director of Zao Makeup UK said, “It was fantastic to see that men favoured the more curvy figured celebrities than size zeros. I hope this will inspire women to follow suit and realise that fuller figures are far more attractive to our opposite sex.
“The majority of males showed a preference to the more natural look to over made-up stars such as Katie Price. Forget the hair extensions and fake tans, it’s time to embrace our natural beauty.
“The survey also trended female respondents opting for the desire to date the mature celebrity males opposed to the likes of Harry Styles and Robert Pattinson which did take us by surprise.
“It seems the majority of women still have good old fashioned values at heart when it comes to dating, attracted to the dark, handsome and trustworthy gentleman with a kind hearted warmth opposed to the more immature male who might be beautiful to look at but probably doesn’t offer the security the female craves. ”
