Happy Holidays to All — TC Candler


  1. let nana 1st in 2014 pls she’s so beautiful, gorgeous, and perfect let her

  2. It’s very nice to see more Koreans getting attention. I really like the fresh faces and symmetry. But how about more middle easternss. Golshifteh is amazing, I was surprised to only see her though

  3. Golshifteh and Fan Binbing are true beauties. Nazanin Boniadi and Park Sora, Shagheyegh aka Claudia Lynx should be looked at.

  4. I think Nana should stay where she is! She is PERRRFECTTT!!!! Please let her stay on Top 5!

  5. Anastasia Anastasia

    I think yoona and jessica are the best
    But remember !
    We aren’t perfect, so don’t judge too much for the winner or anything
    Everyone is beautiful or handsome

  6. Nana? Im YoonA? I think the one who has named Yoona is prettier than NANA.

  7. Can I suggest Mia Wasikowska for your list? Also, I’d like to see Halle Berry. Thank you :)

  8. Tiffany of Girls’ Generation please fo 2014.She is amazing

  9. Wow! South Korean Band Girls Generation’s Kim Taeyeon (Leader), Jessica Jung, Choi Sooyoung and Im Yoona is here??? My favorite celebrity is Taeyeon! She’s 9th place right? cool! Jessica Jung’s 20th placer, Choi Sooyoung’s 66th placer and lastly Yoona’s 71th placer! wow! too bad the others members of Girls Generation/So nyuh Shi dae/SNSD wasn’t on the list.

    • Ikr! SNSD are on the list ! They’re all pretty and amazing ! But I’m happy that 3 of them are on the list. I also love TaeYeon! Taengangsters Unite ! But they should look at Krystal Jung.

  10. TC…you’ve failed once again. You’re obvious attraction to Asian women has once again destroyed this list. One or 2 of them were actually attractive. Olivia Wilde should have been #1 out of all your entries and Mila Kunis should have been #2. Of course you didn’t bother to look at Nadia Bjorlin like I’ve asked you to for the past 3 years. this list gets worse every year. Your definition of beauty baffles me.

    • asian attraction, more like american attraction. I thought more of the asians should of been in front actually, they were naturally stunning. Have you seen Mila or Olivia without make-up/ the youth looks like it has been sucked out of them. I think most of the asians deserved to be there, as some don’t recognize the beauty. hmm I think Nadia should def be looked at but I wish she would let go of those eyebrows, there kind of like sticks. I saw this one pic of her with more norm brows and she looked amazing

    • Mila is very pretty when made up in front of the camera all made up though

  11. Im YoonA next year please

  12. Congratulation to Nana.She is very beautiful.
    Btw,can you put Kris (Wu Yi Fan) from boyband EXO or any EXO member on the 2014 the most handsome faces? :)

  13. I totally agree with you on how Indian celebrities are very underrated here. It doesn’t make sense when they’re all considered as world standard beauties.

  14. Hello! I would like to suggest 2 more beautiful faces of the girl group “Girls’ Generation” for 2014.

    They have really beautiful faces:



    Thank you.

  15. how could rainbow and after school’s members went into this rank…

  16. I suggest;

    Haruna Kawaguchi / she should be recognized to higher rank than kiritani or sasaki.

    Ayaka Umeda / I expect to be elected of the second from mega-idol group of Japan.

    Ha Yeon Soo / an up and coming actress of South Korea, I love her.


  17. AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!! Nana got 2nd place. Nana deserves international recognition for her beauty. Nana’s beauty is stunning. I think Nana is too humble to know how beautiful she really is.

    • In my opinion, I think that Suzy Bae is the prettiest. She is also very popular in Korea. She radiates light, literally. I love her personality. She is always laughing.

  18. Congratulations # 56
    I Love Haruka Shimazaki.

  19. Dear TC Candler,

    “If you don’t like what’s being said, change the conversation.” Wise words to live by. Well, here are a few conversation topics to peruse. . . . .

    First of all, Camilla Belle’s inclusion in the Top 5 for the sixth consecutive year is an inspired decision. She is without a doubt the most beautiful woman below the age of 30 today. Her flawless beauty, angelic innocence, class and elegance is unmatched by any other celebrities who but all will look superficial and unnatural (plastic) if they were to stand beside her. One would just have to watch the latest trailer for her upcoming film “Cavemen” to be reminded of her stunning looks. She is the kind of face that must win the title more than once. In fact, I agree, she deserves to win it again in the near future. Perhaps, next year?

    Secondly, plaudits to you for picking the winner. Marion Cotillard is a worthy one. Glad she finally made it. It’s about time, actually! And on a side note, it’s nice to see Soo Wincci making the grade. Malaysia loves you. Here’s a few South East Asian names that should be in the list: Juliana Evans, Carmen Soo, Fahria Yasmin, Nur Fazura, Rianti Cartwright and Julie Estelle.

    The third subject, or should I say minor issue, is about how under-represented India seems to be. Deepika Padukone seems to be the only one! I know Freida Pinto is a Hollywood darling but there’s a reason why she didn’t make it in Bollywood. In their standards, Freida is just cute at best. And if you watched their films, it’s not hard to argue why. Here are a few stand out examples: Sonam Kapoor, Diana Penty, Diya Mirza, Shraddha Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Evelyn Sharma and Ileana D’Cruz.

    I would also like to make a suggestion that will help make the list better: Omit some names that is, quite frankly, undeserving but most importantly, kills the whole class and exclusive look this annual list has built and is reputed for. For example, the list can do without non-attractive trash-celebs with heavy make up on who are staples to gossip magazines such as Selena Gomez and Mila Kunis. That’s like the Oscars nominating Kristen Stewart! Selena and Mila are just as bad as Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Nikki Minaj and Katy Perry. Please don’t make the same mistake as when Rihanna was included two years ago. Or when Lindsay Lohan won in 2004. Of course, to be fair, Lohan WAS “stable” back then. Who could’ve predicted she would be the trainwreck is now? In addition, I know Chloe Moretz is a personal favourite of yours and she is a good actress but you must stop insisting she is beautiful. If she must be in the list at all, she shouldn’t be placed so high. It beggars belief to see her placed higher than beauties such as Bella Heathcote, Nozomi Sasaki, Cintia Dicker, Yoona, Olivia Wilde, Megan Young and Jaekyung.

    It’s also nice to note how Koreans are getting a lot of love these days. Not to belittle the manufactured looks of Korea but whatever happened to natural Oriental beauties such as Shu Qi and Meisa Kuroki? They should be shoe-ins every year. If not them, then they should be replaced by gorgeous new entries such as Sandrine Pinna and Zhang Zilin. Just a thought.

    Lastly, I would just like to give more of my two cents worth of candidates for next year: Turkish beauty Gizem Karaca, the timeless Yukie Nakama, redhead goddess Jaime Ray Newman, seductive beauty Yao Chen, Ethiopian beauty Liya Kebede, the sultry Lyndsy Fonseca, the irresistable Ahna O’Reilly, Nigerian beauty queen Agbani Darego, the best manufactured beauty product Angelababy and sexy Spanish TV presenter Sara Carbonero.

    Hope you like my letter and thank you for the wonderful annual list.

  20. most liked Chloe Moretz
