#1 Jessica Alba - She played a stripper in Sin City, had an unforgettable shower scene in Machete, and then the ever-hot knockout did the universe a favor by reprising her roles in the sequels for both. #2 Kirsten Dunst #3 Kate Hudson - Gone are the days when this former Tommy Hilfiger model was seen as just Goldie Hawn’s spawn. With an Oscar nod for Almost Famous and upcoming A-list flicks including Fool’s Gold, this sexy free spirit has proved she has more than just great genes. #4 Beyonce - Beyonce Knowles, a.k.a. Mrs. Shawn Carter, a.k.a. Sasha Fierce, or just simply Beyonce, first grabbed our attention as frontwoman of Destiny's Child, only to later go on to win five Grammys as a solo artist. She starred in films Austin Powers in Goldmember, Dreamgirls, Cadillac Records, and more. #5 Gisele Bundchen #6 Tara Reid - V is for Vicki…and Virgin: Tara launched her career as Vicki in American Pie by playing hard to get with her sex-craved boyfriend. And who could blame him? After she finally gave in, she broke it off before college. We were nearly as heartbroken as Kevin until she turned up even hotter in American Pie 2. But for the sake of the third-generation Stifler in American Pie Presents: The Naked Mile, we can only hope the newest Pie girls have learned from Vicky's mistakes. #7 Britney Spears - Britney Spears was an icon before the age of 18. We've watched her crush it year after year after year at the MTV VMAs, can recall her belly button like the back of our hands, and will probably never, ever get her songs out of our heads. #8 Estella Warren #9 Mena Suvari - The American Beauty alum, up 21 places from last year, gets points for shaving her head for the upcoming Hemingway adaptation Garden of Eden and still looking hot. #10 Eliza Dushku - Appearing in movies like Bring it On, City by the Sea, and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Dushku originally won our hearts when she appeared on Buffy the Vampire Slayer in 1998 as another smoldering slayer with a stake. #11 Kim Smith - If you think the way she looks in a bikini is amazing, get this: Kim has also hit a hole in one! #12 Christina Aguilera - This gorgeous pop superstar burst onto the scene as a teenager with the hit song "Genie In A Bottle," and, several years (and chart-toppers) later, made a splash as a coach on NBC's The Voice. #13 Amanda Peet - Stars opposite Mulder and Scully in The X-Files: I Want to Believe;appeared in chick flicks like A Lot Like Love and Something's Gotta Give; fired off a couple of topless rounds in The Whole Nine Yards; just saw requests for "Amanda Peet topless" increase by 22,000 percent on Google. #15 Adriana Lima - The definition of Brazilian bombshell has been a mainstay of Victoria's Secret for years. Exhibit A: Adriana Lima. #17 Ali Larter - We believe all strippers are creatures of wonder and mystery, but none are as spectacular as Niki Sanders, the Webcam tease with a superhuman alter ego on Heroes. A woman as extraordinary as Ali can’t be confined to the small screen, however, which is why she’s starring later this year in Resident Evil: Extinction with Milla Jovovich. #19 Jaime King - This foxy former model may have stumbled a bit as she transitioned from fashion to acting (Happy Campers, Kitchen Confidential, or Pearl Harbor, anyone?), but she redeemed herself nicely as alluring twins Goldie and Wendy in Robert Rodriguez’s Sin City. #21 Laura Prepon #23 Rosario Dawson #25 Mandy Moore - Mandy released her first album at age 15, but has since gone from pop tart to movie star, with roles in Walk to Remember and American Dreamz. You can catch her over the holiday in License to Wed as she and The Office's John Krasinski take on Robin Williams as a wedding pre-crashing priest. Guess this holy turn is penance for Patch Adams. And Toys. Oh, and RV. OK, pretty much anything that might make a Robin Williams box set. #29 Rachael Leigh Cook #30 Jordana Brewster - This remarkably good-looking Ivy Leaguer (she graduated from Yale) is the sexy star of the Fast and Furious franchise. #33 Shannon Elizabeth - Since wowing the world in American Pie, Shannon has beens showing up everywhere from That '70s Show to Dancing With the Stars, even the cover of our June issue! #35 Brooke Burke - After playing a starchy carbohydrate in Burger King's Super Bowl commercial, Brooke will host CBS's reality show Rock Star: INXS this summer. #37 Sofia Vergara - This sexy Colombian gets us right where it's important - the funny bone - thanks to her role on ABC's Modern Family. #39 Kate Beckinsale - This beautiful Brit has starred in Total Recall, Underworld, and Contraband. #40 Molly Sims - She caught our eye as a swimsuit model, then ditched the surf for Sin City as a star of TV’s sexed-up Las Vegas. And while that show might be ending soon, it just means she’ll have more time for movies like Steve Martin’s The Pink Panther 2 and Jim Carrey’s Yes Man. #41 Roselyn Sanchez - The Without a Trace actress is not only beautiful; she will also beat a chick down. "I have no real life experience with girl-fights, but I think I'd be good at it," she says. "I'd kick any girl's ass." Mee-yowch! #44 Monica Bellucci - With steamy shirtless roles in Bram Stoker's Dracula and Irreversible, Mon's never shied away from showing off the goods. So excuse us for being more than optimistic as she brings a hooker-turned-heroine to life on the Shoot 'Em Up DVD. The movie's only 90 minutes long, but you'll have to pay for the full two hours. #51 Emmanuelle Chriqui - As Sloan on Entourage, this hottie saves us from broverdosing. Heat factor: She’s continuing her premium cable domination on Showtime’s The Borgias. #53 Jessica Simpson - Our long national nightmare is over—Jessica Simpson is her own woman again. America's newest redhead gives you a primer on pickup lines, what she wants in a man, and how to kiss her. #55 Summer Altice #57 Leslie Bibb - Talladega Nights proved she’s as funny as she is sexy. This summer finds her in Iron Man and the grisly film adaptation of the Clive Barker story Midnight Meat Train. #60 Monica Keena - This Brooklyn babe made her film debut in 1995 alongside Sandra Bullock in the romantic comedy While You Were Sleeping. Jumping between the silver screen and TV, Keena had small roles in TV shows such as Dawson's Creek, Undeclared, and Entourage, and played the heroine in slasher flick Freddie vs. Jason. #62 Mila Kunis - Starting out as the hot (but kind of annoying) Jackie on That '70s Show, this Ukrainian goddess has since moved on to Hollywood blockbusters, starring in Ted, Black Swan, and Forgetting Sarah Marshall. #69 Anna Paquin - The blood and guts are fine and all, but what keeps us tuning in to True Blood is the weekly dose of this cutie’s naughty bits. #73 Sarah Wynter - This saucy Aussie keeps us coming back each week for more, in Fox’s intense dramatic series 24. #75 Nelly Furtado - Thanks to high-cred producer Timbaland, Nelly Furtado went from birdlike Lilith Fair staple to promiscuous girl on her highly acclaimed comeback album, Loose, which reached number one on the Billboard charts. She just wrapped a world tour, belting out hits like “Maneater” and “Say It Right,” so save those camera phone pics (we won’t tell anyone). #88 Krista Allen #90 Bridget Moynahan - This former model turned Tom Brady arm candy will appear in the upcoming thriller Unknown, about five guys who wake up in a creepy warehouse and claw each other to death to win Bridget's hand. #91 Jolene Blalock - The series regular as a Vulcan vixen on Star Trek: Enterprise gave a new meaning to the genre science fiction and fantasy. This knockout melts screens in the whodunit thriller Slow Burn, in which she may be concealing a dark secret. We're willing to frisk her to find out. #92 Cameron Richardson - Best known for her stint on the CBS drama Harper's Island, Richardson can also be found in Entourage, Murder in the First, and The Lottery.
You voted, we counted, and the rest is super sexy history. From mind-bogglingly seductive supermodels to Hollywood,s most awe-inspiring actresses (with a bevy of beauties in between), the women of 2001 make up a roster so undeniably breathtaking you may get light-headed just reading it.
