The “Independent Critics” List…. 100 Most Beautiful Faces of 2010

TC Candler presents The 21st Annual Independent Critics List of the 100 Most Beautiful Faces – 2010, which has been published in various formats every year since 1990 — and in recent years has been seen by over 20 million unique visitors from around the world.

Unlike many other annual publications, TC Candler’s list is not a popularity contest. It is not about the “sexiest” or the “most famous”. Rather, it aims to be a very international list — one that is inclusive of many cultures, lifestyles, professions and degrees of fame. TC Candler’s list intends to inform public opinion rather than reflect it. This list searches far and wide, listening to the millions of suggestions submitted every year, and tries to put together a list representative of the modern ideal of beauty. Aesthetic perfection is only one of the criteria. Grace, elegance, class, poise, joy, promise, hope… they are all embodied in a beautiful face.

Many countries are represented on the 2010 list. That number seems to go up every year as the list grows and expands. Feel free to comment below with your suggestions or opinions. Originality is most welcome! For example, as much as you may like her, there is really no need to mention Angelina Jolie (who was on the list from 1999 to 2003). Of course, lists are very subjective — you will disagree with some of the choices, but perhaps you will find a new favorite. Every year, this list is populated by some legendary beauties who never seem to fade, but it is also replenished with the freshest and most promising talent from around the world. A mix of new and nostalgia… as Don Draper (Mad Men) once conveyed — “one creates an itch, the other creates a bond.”
