The 100 Most Beautiful Faces Of 2017 Ranked By Critics

While this year saw women taking even bigger steps than before to end the male patriarchy that dominates our society, ladies are still judged on their looks on a regular basis. TC Candler and their Independent Critics List have been selecting the 100 most beautiful faces in the world for a few years now and their list is highly anticipated by many.

The best part about this list is that they do not rely on the same old same. Many of us would expect to see names like Meghan Markle or Angelina Jolie. However, many of the usual suspects that we would expect to see on such a list are not present. Meanwhile, mainstays like Margot Robbie are present on the list, albeit at a much lower position than expected.

In a world where it can often feel as if we are subjected to the same five faces over and over again, a list like this one provides us with a breath of fresh air. We definitely recognize a sizable portion of the names on the list. On the other hand, there are also several names that have us wondering where these women have been hiding all of our lives.
