Candice Swanepoel

Already one of the top-earning models in the world, the impossibly leggy, blue-eyed beauty was spotted at 15 and quickly established herself among the elite, appearing on countless magazine covers, and strutting the runway as Victoria's Secret's alpha Angel. That last gig saw her decked out in the bejeweled "Royal Fantasy Bra". And now, the South African model has been named the world's most desirable woman, topping our 2014 Hot 100 List.

For the record, the reggae-loving beach babe calls Rihanna and Beyonce her personal number ones, and while those are worthy picks, we feel pretty confident we made the right choice.
