Having Victoria's Secret Angels create a "most sexy" list is sort of like having the world's heads of state compile an international "most powerful" list. Why bother?
But we'll set aside our skepticism and take in yet another year of "What Is Sexy," the definitive list of the sexiest celebrity women as decided by the Victoria's Secret Angels. The 2012 video, which was released on Tuesday, features Candice Swanepoel, Erin Heatherton, Lindsay Ellingson and newbie Toni Garrn announcing the winners in a variety of categories: Sexiest Lips, Sexiest Hair, Sexiest Eyes, Sexiest Actress, etc.
Some of the picks were to be expected. Beyonce as the Sexiest Mom? Duh. We totally agree. Same goes for Emma Stone for Sexiest Sense of Humor.
But for Sexiest Smile, we weren't expecting Jessica Chastain; for Sexiest Legs we definitely had Jennifer Aniston in mind, not Stacy Kiebler. And for Sexiest Songstress? The Angels gave us a 1999 throwback and chose (drumroll please) Britney Spears.
All the women listed -- and all the women listing them -- are sexy and beautiful in their own ways. We just have one quibble: where on the list was the "sexiest woman in the world," Tulisa?
Watch the video above. Do you agree with the Angels' picks?
