That will be highly individual as people hold their fat in different places. Thus, someone can look good with 15% bodyfat, while another individual may need to be down to 8 or 9% to really feel that they look good. Muscle mass is important as well, the more lean mass you have, you can "get away" with a slightly higher amount of fat.

In terms of health, I don't know, I have never researched what is optimal from a health and longevity standpoint.
