Shelbia also beat out fellow Israeli Gal Gadot, who was 21st on the list.
Yael Shelbia has just been voted the most beautiful woman in the world by TC Candler’s annual “100 Most Beautiful Faces of the Year” list.
On top of topping the rest of the world’s female population, Shelbia also beat out fellow Israeli Gal Gadot, who was 21st on the list.
The 19-year-old is currently doing her mandatory military service in the Israeli air force, according to the Times of Israel. But the Gen Z beauty is also a hot model and fledgling actress, having already modeled for Kim Kardashian’s KKW Beauty label, alongside other modeling gigs, and has an Instagram following of nearly a million followers.
Shelbia is reportedly dating 35-year-old Bradon Korff, the grandson of the late CBS and Viacom billionaire Sumner Redstone.
This isn’t the first time she has caught the attention of the prestigious list – she was ranked No. 3 earlier in 2018, and second last year, before taking the top spot this time around.
TC Candler has partnered with The Independent Critics to publish its annual list since 1990. They select thousands of celebrity images to find the winners, seeking to compile a representative list of the modern ideal of world beauty.
Aesthetics is just one of the criteria to making the list. “Grace, elegance, originality, daring, passion, class, poise, joy, promise, hope … they are all embodied in a beautiful face.”
