January: Katy Perry- Katy Perry got our hearts racing with her January cover and has stayed in our dreams ever since. Nominated for the 2011 MTV VMA Video of the Year for “Firework,” she has ruled the charts all year with some of the guiltiest pleasures known to mankind.
“Well, I think I’m more comfortable in my skin now than when I was a kid. But as I turned 20, 21, my body began to take shape. I started to grow into a young woman, and I said, OK, I can use this. I think my curves are something to be proud of.”

February: Olivia Munn- Number two on our 2011 Hot 100 list, Olivia Munn likes videogames and dirty jokes even more than we do. Being a Daily Show correspondent and prime time miracle has worked out for Munn and especially for the rest of us. It’s a Munn-derful life!
“As a woman it’s nice to feel sexy, and I wanted to show something different: that you can be sexy and smart and a 2011 woman.”

March: Michelle Trachtenberg- Our favorite redhead lit up our March cover and added a whole new meaning to “March Madness.” She’s been on everyone’s mind as the volatile vixen on Gossip Girl and the sweet but sexy siren we loved in Eurotrip, but nothing compares to her sexy goth shoot.
“I was rather flat-chested in high school, so I was picked on all the time. I think I’ve made up for it. Maybe a bit late, but they’re here now. I literally woke up one day and, like, my boobs had come! I would flash a lot of my friends, going, ‘Look! They’re really here!’”

April: Brittany Snow- We were stuck in a serious snowstorm during the entire month of April and didn’t attempt to escape once. Brittany Snow has had our attention since her breakout film John Tucker Must Die and continued to steal hearts in Harry’s Law – as well as, of course, our April cover. Oh, please let it snow.
“When I made John Tucker Must Die with Sophia [Bush], it was great, because it was the first time I felt really close with the girls. We had slumber parties and pillow fights and whatever else you might imagine.”

May: Jordana Brewster- Our May cover girl, who is an Ivy Leaguer and daughter of a Sports Illustrated model, has sped her way in to our lives via the hugely successful Fast and Furious franchise. We’d watch her all day, if only we could keep up with her.
“I think Yale is proud of me. I’m hoping to be on some dorm-room walls over there…”

June: Cameron Diaz- In June, Cameron Diaz washed our car and we watched. Hard. Her looks are enough to paralyze in films like Bad Teacher and There’s Something About Mary, and her infectious laugh never stops making the world swoon.
“One should dry hump as much as possible. It leads to great things. I’d prescribe at least one per day. What’s nice about dry humping is that it can happen anywhere.”

July: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley- We couldn’t get enough of this blond bombshell, and we so we decided to name her Number 1 on our 2011 Hot 100 List. The Victoria’s Secret model walked her way from those sparkling runways to starring in one of the biggest summer blockbusters to hit the silver screen, Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon.
“My body requires a lot of upkeep, but the lips are one thing I don’t have to work on. They’re funny, because they change color with my mood. You know mood rings? I’ve got mood lips.”

August: Rachel Nichols- She sizzled up our August cover and just might be the sexiest ass-kicking action girl yet. With films Conan the Barbarian and G.I. Joe, we know she can handle both projectile and melee weapons, which has our inner-nerd quivering with joy.
“I recently began taking golf lessons. On the first day, my teacher said, ‘You’re a flexible little fucker!’ He’s at least 70!”

September: Lake Bell- The geeky girl with the glasses in
“I’ve never done MAXIM before, so I wanted to create this fantasy, really powerful and sexy.”
