The Top 100 Most Beautiful Famous Faces

The Annual Independent Critics List of the 100 Most Beautiful Faces, which has been published, in various formats, every year since 1990… and in recent years has been seen by millions of unique visitors from around the world, has revealed the 100 most beautiful faces of 2010!



This list is only about beautiful celebrity faces. Unlike the Maxim, FHM, Askmen & People lists, it is not based on the “sexiest”, “hottest” or “best body”. As this is an international list with input from all over the world, you may discover some relatively unfamiliar faces. Despite fame being a prerequisite, it is certainly not based purely on public popularity. There will definitely be a few big name exclusions because of the specific criteria evaluated — Some who would make the “sexiest” lists may not be known for their facial aesthetic. Over 75 countries have been represented in the Top 100 over the years.

Actress Song Hye Kyo is the first Korean woman to make it on the annual list in its 21-year history. Japan's Nozomi Sasaki, in 33rd place, was the only other Asian on this year's list.

Surprisingly, she did not only take a place in the list but also secured a place in the top 20, placing 18th. She is also the first Korean actress to rank this high on the chart, which is a great achievement for herself and Korea.

The website picks its favorite celebrities based strictly on their face, and predicted that Song may jump higher on the list next year. "We look forward to seeing her in next year's Top 10," it said.

Song ranked higher than many global celebrities including Monica Belluci and Scarlett Johansson who came in at 25th and 42nd, and Jessica Alba and Megan Fox at 53rd and 64th.

First place went to U.S. model and actress Camilla Belle, while Emma Watson, star of the "Harry Potter" movies, was runner-up.
