FHM Magazine has released its annual list of 100 Sexiest Women in the World 2013 -- we bring you the top 20!

Each year, glamorous divas from across entertainment and fashion compete to be crowned FHM's Sexiest Woman in the World.

Now in its nineteenth year, the publication has released its prestigious 100 list for 2013 -- take a look at who's moved up the charts, moved down or been knocked off!

Here are the lovely ladies who made it to the top 20.

20. Jennifer Lawrence

The 22-year-old Hunger Games star is certainly shining this year. First an Oscar win and now she's named one of the best-looking babes on the planet!

Jennifer was Number 74 on the list in 2012 and now she's made it to 20 -- quite a climb.

The country music cutie has a very demure sense of style and shuns revealing clothes, but sexy she certainly is! Since her debut on the list in 2009, Taylor's never made it to the top 50, but 2013 has shot her up to 12.
