And the most beautiful face of 2020 is… Yael Shelbia, 19, an Israeli model, actress and Israel Air Force soldier.
Shelbia appears in the No. 1 spot of this year’s 100 Most Beautiful Faces list, compiled and published annually by TC Candler & The Independent Critics entertainment website since 1990.
It wasn’t Shelbia’s first time on the coveted list. She ranked 14th in 2017, third in 2018 and second in 2019.
Shelbia’s face, if not her name, is known to Israelis from her role in the TV series “Palmach” and ad campaigns for local clothing companies Castro and Renuar. She is represented in Israel by ITM boutique model and talent agency.
She has also done international modeling and was named Model of the Year for 2020 by Israeli magazine At (You).
The blue-eyed, brown-haired beauty from Nahariya has 909,000 followers on Instagram and posted this message in reaction to the news: “Thank you @tccandler and all the voters … I appreciate it with all my heart!!”
The much more famous Gal “Wonder Woman” Gadot appeared on the 2020 Most Beautiful Faces list this year for the seventh time, albeit in 21st place. Her highest ranking on the list was No. 2, in 2015.
