COED Presents: Emerging Hotties of 2008

Another year, another batch of babes on the verge of blowing up.

If we here at COED made a list the emerging hotties of 2007, it would have included sexy babes like Megan Fox, Kristen Bell, Jessica Biel and Hayden Panettiere – but we didn’t.

We are terribly sorry, and hope to make up for it by naming 19 hotties that you, and every worthwhile entertainment blog online, will be obsessing over for the next year.

Hilary is arguably the most well-known actress on the list, but with a rumored boob job, magazine covers, a former boyfriend who knocked up Nicole Richie and a badass/sexy new image, her star is on the rise more than ever before. In 2008 look for her clothing line “Stuff” to hit shelves, four films (“Greta,” “War, Inc.,” “Foodfight!” and “Safety Glass”) and many tabloid covers, because someone who has just figured out they are sexy (and worth upwards of $50 million) is bound to stir up some controversy.
