TC Candler along with The Independent Critics has published the list of 100 Most Handsome Faces and 100 Most Beautiful Faces (for Men and Women category respectively). Around 40 countries are represented on the annual list and the winners are chosen based on intensive research conducted on the celebrity figure, the facial features and brand value.
A description from TC Candler states, "Aesthetic perfection is only one of the criteria. Grace, elegance, originality, daring, passion, class, poise, joy, promise, hope... they are all embodied in a beautiful face. With those criteria in mind, TC Candler and the IC members select only 100 faces out of the approximately 90,000+ female and male celebrities."
