Every year, the editors of various websites and magazines feel the need to rank brilliant and talented women in terms of how beautiful/hot/sexy they are. The most recent of these totally necessary lists, published by the Los Angeles Times, is refreshingly unranked. However, the description still manages to objectify "the sort of celebrities who brighten the day with their smiles ... among other things."
Other publications were a bit more candid. Men's Health explained their self-proclaimed "lust list," saying: "Most of these women are very smart. Many are successful. All are smokin’ hot—and that was our only criteria." Interestingly enough, that is the only thing that all of the roundups seemed to agree on. From People's "Most Beautiful" to Maxim's "Top 100," just 11 women made the top 10 of more than one list.
We took a look at People, Men's Health, Ask Men, Maxim and Reddit, and in our
use of the tally system laborious research, we found consistency in the inconsistency; even those ladies who made the top 5 of some lists were entirely missing from others.
Consider Miley Cyrus, who came in No.1 over at Maxim, but was not even mentioned by the LA Times; or People's lucky winner Gwyneth Paltrow, conspicuously missing from every other publication. Yep, turns out the male gaze is totally subjective -- who knew?!
Gathered here, to help organize the chaotic world of sexy hotness around you, some super intelligent and innovative women, who also happen to be the top 11 most aesthetically pleasing.
