Israeli model Yael Shelbia has the most beautiful face in the world. This is an official fact confirmed by TC Candler and the Independent Critics who bestowed the honor upon the 19 year old. Yael Shelbia beat out such notable members of the top ten as Korean singer Tzuyu and fellow 19 year old, the French model Thylane Blondeau.

The list clearly favors younger women. Shelbia’s fellow Israeli Gal Gadot made the list at number 21, and she is a serious movie star.

Shelbia tweeted her gratitude to TC Candler saying, “Thank you @tccandler and all the voters 💞💞 I appreciate it with all my heart!!”

This is the second time this month that Yael Shelbia has made history. A week ago it was announced that she would be the first Israeli model to appear on the cover of L’Official Arabia, a prominent Arab fashion and culture magazine based in Dubai. The magazine will also focus entirely on Israeli fashion designers and artists like illustrator Talia Zoref.

The 100 MOST BEAUTIFUL FACES LIST has been published annually by TC CANDLER & THE INDEPENDENT CRITICS since 1990. Over the past 30 years, the list has been seen by hundreds of millions of people from around the world. TC Candler boasts that this is considered to be the most internationally recognized and prestigious list of its kind. Its viewership is far greater than People Magazine, Esquire, AskMen, Maxim and FHM combined.

The List is not popularity contest, nor is it about the sexiest body or the most famous celebrity. The list attempts to inform and broaden public opinion instead of reflecting it.


The Independent Critics are a diverse group of approximately 20 people living in various parts of the world, organized by TC Candler.

The couple made headlines in Israel back in June when Korff was deported by the country for violating its Coronavirus quarantine measures by meeting with Yael Shelbia. Brandon Korff was only allowed into the country at the time because his brother was serving in the IDF.
