Pop singers Justin Bieber and Avril Lavigne, hockey star Sidney Crosby and CBC journalist Amanda Lang are among the high-profile faces tapped by Hello Canada for its 50 Most Beautiful list for 2013.

The Canadian celebrity magazine released its latest tally of the country's most comely figures on Thursday.

"Unveiling our annual Most Beautiful issue is as thrilling as giving a close friend a big, beautiful birthday present," editor in chief Alison Eastwood said in a statement. "This year is especially exciting."

Along with Lang, CBC personalities listed include George Stroumboulopoulos and actors David Sutcliffe and Pascale Hutton —from CBC-TV dramas Cracked and Arctic Air, respectively.
