Candice Swanepoel tops Maxim Hot 100 List
Those big baby blues, crazy thick hair and -- oh yeah -- that bod have helped earn Victoria's Secret model Candice Swanepoel the top spot on Maxim's annual Hot 100 list.
"It's a huge honor to be Maxim's No. 1, among so many beautiful and talented women!" the 25-year-old supermodel said of the honor, according to Maxim. "It's a great feeling."
The magazine's creative director Paul Martinez said the South African-born Swanepoel is "the ideal embodiment of the new Maxim brand: stunning, sophisticated, elegant," in explaining the company's 2014 No. 1 choice.
"It's not only her flawless beauty and effortless grace that have garnered her the coveted 2014 Hot 100 Number 1 placement, but also her business acumen. She has risen to become one of the world's top supermodels and has transcended the accolade to become a global brand. It's hard to imagine a woman more perfect," he said. Other women in the upper ranks of this year's list include (in order) Scarlett Johansson, Katy Perry, Irina Shayk, Jennifer Lawrence, Zooey Deschanel, Alessandra Ambrosio, Jessica Alba, Mila Kunis and Cara Delevingne. Miley Cyrus, who landed at No. 1 last year, took the No. 25 spot in 2014.
