Victoria's Secret's list of What Is Sexy features actors, singers and an athlete.

Lifestyle brand Victoria's Secret has revealed its annual What Is Sexy list.

Former beauty queen and actor Priyanka Chopra is the only Indian to feature on the list. And host James Cordon is the only male in the list.

According to VS, the What Is Sexy list celebrates people who are "bold, powerful and confident."

But ever since the list was out, the Internet has criticised the brand for its choice of winners calling them unfair for mostly choosing people who are 'young, slim, female and white', reported News.au.

Meanwhile, here's the list of winners. You tell us what you think.

Sexiest Actress: Mandy Moore
The singer turned actor made her debut with the film Dr Dolittle 2 in 2001 and is known for her subtle and sexy red carpet styles. The 33 yr-old also made it to People magazine's world's most beautiful women 2017 list.
