Most Desirable Women 2012: Sunny Leone, Kim and more!
Here's a look at the annual list of sexy sirens compiled by AskMen.com!
At the start of each year, men's lifestyle website AskMen.com publishes a list of its '99 Most Desirable Women', rating female celebrities on their hotness quotient and overall appeal.
Now in its eleventh edition, we bring you the beautiful bombshells who've made it to the top 25, along with the Indian contenders -- check it out!
1. Sofia Vergara
The Colombian actress is mother to a 19-year-old and will turn 40 this year, but she's beaten women half her age from across the world to nab the top spot. With those killer curves, we're hardly surprised!

Twenty six-year-old Rooney has certainly upped her profile with her critically acclaimed role in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo -- she's even been nominated for an Academy Award for her performance. And she's made it right to the top of the 'Most Desired' list at Number Three!
