The winner of 2022's 'most beautiful face in the world' has been announced.
Although it's an extremely subjective award, content creator TC Candler has successfully been compiling an annual list since 1990 while consuming over '12 billion social media impressions' during that time.
It is widely considered to be the most internationally recognized and prestigious list of its kind, Candler says.
Independent critics help compile the coveted list by listening 'to the many millions of suggestions submitted by the public over the past couple of decades'.
Candler says: "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."
Well - without further ado - 2022's winner is former Victoria's Secret Angel Jasmine Tookes.
The 31-year-old is of European, African American, Brazilian and West Indian descent, and has worked for the likes of Jimmy Choo, Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren... just to name a few.
In 2015, she became a Victoria's Secret Angel and a year later, was selected to wear the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show Fantasy Bra worth $3 million at the 2016 show in Paris.
Tookes was the third black model to ever wear the bra.
In November last year, she announced on Instagram that she is expecting her first child with her boyfriend of four years, Juan David Borrero.
It's Tookes' seventh time on the list but the first time she's took home the 'crown'.
K-pop singer, Nancy Jewel McDonie, who featured on the list for a fifth time, took second place.
Another honourable mention is former Miss Israel and Wonder Woman actor Gal Gadot who finished 12th.
"We select only 100 faces out of the approximately 160,000 celebrities (which works out to less than 0.001 percent)," Candler explains.
"It is a thankless task, as no individual will ever agree with all the choices. Over 50 countries are represented on the annual list.
"That number seems to go up every year as the public participation grows and expands. This diversity relies heavily on public suggestions from almost every corner of the globe.
"Of course, lists are always very subjective… you will disagree with some of the choices, but perhaps you will find a new favourite. We hope you enjoy the list."
