Thao Nhi Le listed among world's 100 Most Beautiful Faces of 2020

Model, influencer, and designer Thao Nhi Le, 26, has been named among the 100 Most Beautiful Faces of 2020, as announced on December 28 by TC Candler.


The local beauty comes in at 81st in the Top 100, notably being named as the only Vietnamese representative on the list.

This comes as other Vietnamese celebrities, such as singer Son Tung M-TP, Nguyen Tran Huyen My, the runner-up of Miss Vietnam 2014, and actress Kha Ngan fall out of the ranking’s Top 100.

Topping the list is Israeli model Yael Shelbia, with the top three also including Thai singer Lalisa Manoban and Australian model Meika Woollard.

Up to 125,000 candidates were nominated this year, with the final list being selected by 20 independent critics from different countries and based on various criteria, such as culture, lifestyle, career, and social media coverage.

TC Candler was first published in 1990 and has gone on to publish one of the most prestigious annual rankings in the world.  VOV
