Jin Akanishi, Honda Keisuke & Takeshi Kaneshiro on The 100 Most Handsome Faces of 2013


For 25 years, The Independent Critics have published a List of the 100 Most Beautiful Faces of each year. The lists have been published, in various formats, every year since 1990... and in recent years have been seen by over to 40 million unique visitors from around the world.

Now, for the first time, after tens of thousands of requests, The Independent Critics are listing the 100 Most Handsome Faces of the Year. Unlike many other annual publications, The Independent Critics List is not a popularity contest. It is not about the sexiest or the most famous. Rather, it aims to be a very international list and one that is inclusive of many cultures, lifestyles, professions and degrees of fame. The Independent Critics List intends to inform public opinion rather than reflect it. This list searches far and wide, listening to the millions of suggestions submitted every year, and tries to put together a list representative of the modern ideal of aesthetic beauty.

25 countries are represented on this 2013 list. In the said ranking, three japanese men joined the ranking with Honda Keisuke at58th, Takeshi Kaneshiro at 81st and Arama's King...err I mean Jin Akanishi at 83rd place.
