It's been a super long time since I published an article, and I thought this would be a good time to update the list I posted about a year ago.
About the article:
1. I'll just be focusing on faces.
2. I tried my best (the Internet and I both have limitations) to base everything on how people looked before plastic surgery/ makeup. Somebody who looks amazing with all that, but without all that doesn't stand out to me, wouldn't cut the list... and somebody who doesn't look good after all that but used to look amazing would. (The photos here aren't the ones I based my rankings on.)
3. I'm not trying to state anything as fact :)
And finally, we start!
10. Cora Emmanuel
I did a ton of agonizing research through various sites and general Google searches to make this list - and that's how I found out about this French model. I really like her facial structure - she has great cheekbones.
9. Pier Angeli
I really admire her eyes and her smile. In photographs she always looks happy :)
I think I found out about her when I was reading about James Dean? Maybe? Anyway, they dated for a while and he was still in love with her when she married another man, whom she later divorced -_-. James and Pier both died young, too :=(.
8. Kathryn Grayson
I was listening to female opera singers and that's how I found her :). In addition to being a "coloratura" soprano, she was an American actress.
7. Gražina Baikštytė
I can't remember when or why I found out about this Lithuanian actress, but I like the way her nose turns up, and also her eyes.
6. Kim Yoo Jung
Korean stuff has been really interesting for me in the past year, which is how I found a lot of people on this list. Kim Yoo Jung is a South Korean actress who was a highly successful child actress. She looks so adorable that I had to include her.
She's also only one year older than I am, which surprised me but is really cool at the same time :)
5. Garima Parnami
She's an Indian model :) I love her doe eyes, and I also like her slightly convex nose.
4. Charlotte Benson
I found this British model the same way I found Cora Emmanuel - a lot of lengthy, in-depth research >.<. I like her nose and eyes.
Although this had nothing to do with her placement, I think her hair looks cool, too.
3. Julie Adams
An American actress especially active in the 1950s. I like her defined facial structure.
2. Hannah Graaf
Again, I had absolutely no idea who this person was - a Swedish model and singer in a group with her sister - until I started trying to construct this list through extensive research. She looks like an angel, but there's some decidedly non-angelic stuff of her online :/.
1. Lee Ji-eun
Lee Ji-eun, a.k.a. IU, is a South Korean singer-songwriter and actress. She, along with another artist named Ailee, was the major artist I listened to when I started listening to K-pop; she and Ailee are still the artists I listen to the most in K-pop, I think. Her single "Good Day" (which I think was the first K-pop song I heard after "Gangnam Style", and currently my favorite K-pop song) spent five consecutive weeks at number one on South Korea's Gaon Digital Chart... and actually is tied
with "Gangnam Style" for most weeks at No. 1. Here's the song:
She also holds the record for the most number one songs on the Gaon Digital Chart since 2010. And her most recent song has been topping every single chart in Korea :D
Anyway, now that I'm done talking about IU as an artist, her nose is super cute, and I agree with the people who say she resembles a porcelain doll. She's moved up six places from when I last made my list :)
10. James Garner
I found out about him when I first watched the movie The Great Escape (which the Dreamworks movie Chicken Run is a parody of). I like how he has a really strong jawline.
9. Muzammil Ibrahim
He's an Indian model and Bollywood actor. I think the main thing I like about his face is, like with James Garner, his jawline.
8. Avan Jogia
I don't remember how I found out about him. He was on the show Victorious, which I've never seen, and numerous movies, which I've also never seen :(. I've watched a bunch of videos with him in them and he seems to have a good sense of humor :).
Although it's not in the picture, he has an adorable smile. His eyes crinkle up and it's very endearing.
7. Jo Youngmin and Jo Kwangmin
...How am I supposed to choose
6. Paul Newman
His nose has a very noble sort of look to it (if a nose can look noble), and I really like his deep-set blue eyes.
5. Gregory Peck
I found out about him after watching the movie To Kill a Mockingbird, in which he played the lawyer and father Atticus Finch. I like his nose... and also how he raises his eyebrows :)
4. Brenton Thwaites
I found out about him after watching the movie The Giver. I think I just really like basically everything about his face. He's moved up from ninth place on my previous list :)
3. Jung Yonghwa
Up from tenth place in my list last year, the leader of CNBlue (who happens be a friend of IU) has really great bone structure, and I like the constant distant look in his eyes.
2. Dennis Oh
He's a South Korean model and actor, born to a Korean mom and a former U.S. G.I. dad. I like his nose and jawline, and he has a nice smile, too.
1. Moon Jongup
Still holding the top spot in this list, he's the main dancer in the K-pop group B.A.P., and he's a fairly good singer IMO. From various videos I've watched, he's also hilarious XD. The main things I like about his face are his nose and cheekbones.
Hope you enjoyed the article, and please feel free to comment!
