Here’s the composite face of America, at least, in its dreams: A person with the nose of Nicole Kidman, the jawline of Emily Blunt and the hair of Taylor Swift.

According to a new survey by facial plastic surgeons Richard Fleming and Toby Mayer of the Beverly Hills Institute, these are the celebrity features that plastic surgery patients nationwide desire the most.

“People just love her nose,” Fleming tells me. “The fact that she came up No. 1 again even though she hasn’t been as much in the public eye was very telling. Despite that, people keep consistently requesting her nose; this is a very common result. She just keeps coming back again!”


(Note: Kidman’s nose may have made the survey, but her mesmerizingly placid forehead somehow did not. Go figure.)

But it doesn’t end there. Guys want eyes like -- Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Think you share the same tastes as the rest of the country? Take our quiz (it’s after the break) and see which other stars are keeping plastic surgeons in fancy scrubs.
