With the inaugural edition of its Mail Online Showbiz Awards, the Daily Mail has shortlisted the best female figures of the past year. Take a look.

In the following pages, we bring you the top 10 candidates for the 'Best Bikini Body' of the past year.

1. Kim Kardashian

In first place we have the famous reality star, who's built her career on her legendary curves.
