Kate Upton Named 'Sexiest Woman Alive' By People Magazine

Last month, Chris Hemsworth was named People's "Sexiest Man Alive," and now he has a female counterpart.

At the People Magazine Awards on Thursday night, model Kate Upton was named the "Sexiest Woman Alive."

"This is such an honor to me because sexy to me means someone who's confident and happy, and that's the person I always strive to be," the 22-year-old told the audience as she accepted the award.
