The gorgeous swimsuit siren was voted by readers as their favorite of 2016, beating out beauties like Sofia Resing, Tanya Mityushina, Bo Krsmanovic, and even the great Graham.

It has been a long time coming. Barbara got her start in the industry at 13 and has modeled for Victoria's Secret, Louis Vuitton, Armani, and L'Oreal Paris. She even counts an acting credit in the 2014 film Hercules.

Barbara joins good company. Last year’s honors went to Kelly Rohrbach, Maxim cover star Sara Sampaio won in 2014, Kate Upton in 2011, and Chrissy Teigen in 2010.
