Candice Swanepoel is #1 on Maxim's Hot 100 List for 2014

Already one of the top-earning models in the world, the impossibly leggy, blue-eyed beauty was spotted at 15 and quickly established herself among the elite, appearing on countless magazine covers, and strutting the runway as Victoria's Secret's alpha Angel. That last gig saw her decked out in the bejeweled "Royal Fantasy Bra". And now, the South African model has been named the world's most desirable woman, topping our 2014 Hot 100 List.

For the record, the reggae-loving beach babe calls Rihanna and Beyonce her personal number ones, and while those are worthy picks, we feel pretty confident we made the right choice.


#2 Scarlett Johansson

We've been swooning over this bodacious actress since she popped up on the scene as the quirky Charlotte in Lost in Translation. Since then we've watched her in The Avengers, Iron Man 2, and He's Just Not That Into You (try to keep that last one on the DL).

#3 Katy Perry

This gorgeous pop star from California is best known for her hits "I Kissed A Girl," "Teenage Dream," and "Wide Awake." Oh, and she's our 2010 Hot 100 List Topper.

#4 Irina Shayk

This Russian model sure knows how to rock a bikini; she's been heating up the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue since 2007, including a 2011 turn on the cover.

#5 Jennifer Lawrence

This Oscar-winning actress is the star of The Hunger Games, Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle, and Winter's Bone.
