Jennifer Lawrence is now officially The Sexiest Woman in the World–according to this year’s survey by FHM magazine, and they’ve pretty much become the standard over the past few years. There really probably isn’t a Sexiest Woman poll that draws in more guys casting their very important votes. We’re sure not looking to argue with any of FHM’s choices–and we’re very happy to see that it’s another international collection of amazing women. The official name of the list is Te 100 Sexiest Women in the World, and you won’t find a hotter 100. For now, though, let’s look at the moves of the FHM Top Ten…
#1 Jennifer Lawrence
Like we said, FHM has pretty much the most official Sexiest Woman list around–and we’re thinking that Jennifer Lawrence is going to take the honor pretty seriously. It’s not like she’s ever won the polling before, and she’s probably already forgotten about that Golden Globe and the Academy Award that she got earlier this year for American Hustle. We, however, can never forget this movie star’s hustle.
#2 Michelle Keegan
This year’s Second Sexiest Women got our attention when she was Zoo magazine’s Sexiest Woman of 2013. Don’t feel bad if you’re an American who doesn’t know Michelle Keegan. She’s really a big deal in the UK as the star of a television show called Coronation Street–and a good reason to start watching that import.
Rihanna used to be FHM‘s Second Sexiest Women in the World, but she’s bumped down to #3 on this year’s list. The good news is that Rihanna’s already starting next year’s comeback with plenty of topless pics. We’re pretty sure that she has a good shot at #1 next year. She’s close to getting our vote.
#4 Emily Ratajkowski
Meanwhile, Emily Ratajkowski makes a dramatic first-time appearance at #4 on the list. She’s had a really stellar past several months since stealing the “Thin Lines” video from Robin Thicke and Pharrell. Emily has only moved on to other cool things, too–like an amazing GQ shoot and an upcoming big-screen debut in Gone Girl. Now check out the older moves that got Emily Ratajkowski ranked right.
#5 Kaley Cuoco
Kaley Cuoco makes it into the FHM Top Five for the first year (despite her running around on the COED staff with her husband), and it’s nice to know that guys still appreciate how she puts the bang in The Big Bang Theory.
#6 Mila Kunis
Mila Kunis is down to #6 after landing the top slot last year. She’s still pretty hot, though. We’re thinking that some guys were just a little turned off by that whole getting-knocked-up-by-Ashton-Kutcher thing. We’re more mature than that–especially when we can be looking back at Mila like she moves in those GIFs.
Jay Z will be more insufferable than ever with his bride Beyoncé at #7–which is a very impressive leap up from last year’s ranking at #17. We’re thinking that Beyoncé inspired a whole lot of votes when she took the time to grind out all those videos from her surprise album late last year. She sure has the kind of moves that make that ranking no surprise.
#8 Lucy Mecklenburgh
There’s another hot British import in the FHM rankings with Lucy Mecklenburgh at#8. She’s a fitness model who’s become a British beauty via a reality show called The Only Way Is Essex, which is usually described as a British version of The Jersey Shore. It took a lot more than regional pride to get Lucy into the Top Ten, though–and you’ll see what Lucy isn’t lacking right here.
#9 Nicole Scherzinger
Nicole Scherzinger is still best known as a former Pussycat Doll, but she’s enjoying an amazing comeback into this year’s Top Ten. There must be some kind of serious Pussycat Revival going on overseas, since Nicole pounces back to #9 in the polls after lounging last year at #54.
#10 Scarlett Johansson
And the last definitely isn’t the least for this issue of FHM. We can’t explain what Scarlett Johansson was doing way down at #49 in last year’s rankings–but that’s been fixed with the superheroine bouncing back into the Top Ten. It probably helped that Scarlett was walking around naked in the sci-fi film Under The Skin, which got more attention overseas than in the States. We can’t explain that, either, but we can sure explain Scarlett’s fan base with GIFs like these.
