Taipei, Dec. 28 (CNA) Tzuyu (周子瑜), the Taiwanese member of South Korean girl group Twice, was ranked 13th on The 100 Most Beautiful Faces of 2015 released Sunday by American film review site TC Candler.

Sixteen-year-old Tzuyu, whose birth name is Chou Tzu-yu, was the only Taiwanese who made it onto this year's list, which has been presented annually since 1990.

South Korean singer Nana from the girl group After School topped the list for the second year in a row. Israeli actress and model Gal Gadot ranked second and British model Jourdan Dunn came in third.

Rounding up the top five were British actress Emma Watson (4) and Iranian actress Golshifteh Farahani (5).

The most recent Taiwanese to make it onto the list was actress Barbie Hsu (徐熙媛), who was ranked 89th in 2012.

The Facebook page of TC Candler said the annual list listens to "the hundreds of thousands of suggestions submitted every year, and tries to put together a list representative of the modern ideal of beauty," taking into consideration criteria including aesthetic perfection, grace, elegance, class, poise, joy, promise and hope.

It was unclear how the criteria were weighted and how they were used to come up with the final list.
