Abstract:
Evolutionary theories of attractiveness have been very successful at explaining what physical traits are attractive in the human face and why we should be attracted to them. However, the ecological validity of much of the research is limited because of the static nature of the stimuli used and the lack of consideration of the context in which attractiveness ratings or mating decisions are made.
