IMAGES: The Hottest Women Right Now!
Complex Magazine has released its list of the 100 Hottest Women Right Now from across entertainment, sports and fashion. We bring you the top 20!
From supermodels to superstars, the candidates who scored a spot on men's lifestyle magazine Complex's hot 100 list are undoubtedly among the sexiest in the world and, in the publication's own words, "running pop culture in 2013".
In the following pages, here are the best of the best who managed to edge out stiff competition and make it to the top 20.
The sultry Barbadian songstress is no stranger to such 'sexy' lists and topping this one is just another feather in her cap. RiRi loves flaunting her stunning looks in the skimpiest of outfits -- and sometimes even less!
