Each set of lips are so unique, you can’t exactly bring in a photo of your favorite celebrity’s pout to your plastic surgeon and walk out with those same lips. “Every face is a different unique shape and the lips as well,” says Scottsdale, AZ facial plastic surgeon Kelly V. Bomer, MD. “One cannot put another person’s lips on another face. Human anatomy does not work this way if the outcome is to be beautiful and natural in appearance.”
However, that doesn’t stop people from asking for a certain style or look. Here, plastic surgeons share the muses with the most aesthetically appealing lips on the red carpet and why.
Richmond, VA plastic surgeon Ruth L. Hillelson, MD says Angelina Jolie will forever claim the prize for prettiest lips. “My patients really never come in asking for someone else’s lips, but hers are definitely the most famous. When a patient tells me their concerns, I do what I think will look the most natural. If lip lines are an issue, I handle those and perhaps suggest lip roll or volume as the aesthetic needs arise.”
“My personal favorite would be Adriana Lima because of the volume, the proportion between her upper and lower lip, and her Cupid’s bow and philtrum columns definition,” notes Miami plastic surgeon Natalia Vidal, MD.
“The most famous family for lips belongs to the Kardashian-Jenners,” says Short Hills, NJ facial plastic surgeon Alexander Ovchinsky, MD. “Kylie’s famous pout is very sought after when doing injectable lip filler.”
“From Kylie’s full lips to Kendall’s natural-look, the family runs the gamut of beautiful lips with different sizes in between, which makes them a popular choice for patients,” Dr. Ovchinsky shares.
Dr. Ovchinksy adds that Rosie Huntington-Whiteley gets his vote for the most ideal lips. “The art to a perfect lip is for it to look natural without looking injected. One of my favorites is Rosie Huntington-Whitely.”
“Rihanna is another one that has that natural-looking fullness in both the top and bottom lip that looks proportional to her face,” explains Dr. Ovchinksy.
“Lately, my expert injector Holly Tyler, PA says Jessica Biel has been the most popular,” explains Las Vegas plastic surgeon Mary C. Herte, MD. “She has very natural, balanced, full, beautiful lips.”
“My personal favorite is JLo,” says Dr. Herte. “I love her lips because they are very natural and not too big or overdone.”
