The recent study of an analytical center in Russia gives an insight into one pretty intriguing topic- what does female ideal look like? The cultural aspect plays here a crucial role – I wonder how much the results would differ in the other countries.

The study was done in Mai 2008 by the analytical center of SuperJob.ru. Representative number of Russian men gave thier opinion on the female ideal. Interestingly a strong differentiation has been found between a wife and a girlfriend. The grafic shows the results in Russian, I`ve made a short English summary here on my Shaktipower blog.

Number 5: Milan airport (Italy), makes rather an out-dated impression (probably build in the 1970s), but has its charm due to the green colour and massive ads of Italian designers: (more…)
