A 19-year-old model has been crowned the most stunning woman on the planet after securing the top spot of an annual beauty contest.
Yael Shelbia has won the prestigious TC Candler '100 Most Beautiful Faces of the Year’ gong at the fourth time of asking.
The Israeli teen, who is currently carrying out mandatory military service with the air force, told local media: “I’ve never come first at anything, it’s very nice.”
Shelbia, a model, has fronted numerous national campaigns - and this is not the first time she has rated highly in the competition.
She has shot up the rankings in recent years, placing 14th in 2017, 3rd in 2018 and 2nd last year, before taking the top spot in 2020.
The fledging actress is reportedly dating 35-year-old Brandon Korff, the grandson of billionaire honcho Sumner Redstone.
The blue-eyed beauty, who’s modelled for Israeli fashion company Renuar, KM earbuds and Kim Kardashian’s KKW Beauty makeup line, is also an Instagram star who boasts nearly 1 million followers.
She told her followers: “Thank you @tccandler and all the voters. I appreciate it with all my heart!!”
The 30-year-old list has a very touch criteria to match, the New York Post reported.
According to the rules: “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.”
TC Candler claims his “list is not a popularity contest and is most definitely not country-specific. It is not about the sexiest body or the most famous celebrity. Rather, the list attempts to inform and broaden public opinion instead of reflecting it. You will find superstars and new stars, global sensations and relative unknowns.”
Meanwhile, mega-famous YouTuber Pew Die Pie has won the counter award for “most handsome face”.
The likes of Jason Momoa, Jason Derulo and Chris Hemsworth all featured in the top ten, but the 31-year-old emerged victorious.
The competition has been held since 1990, with a top 100 being decided by a team of about 20 critics.
Real name Felix Kjellberg, the viral sensation rose to fame in 2010 when he began sharing gaming videos.
