Maxim Magazine released its Hot 100 list for this year -- what they call the 'definitive list of the world's most beautiful women'. We bring you the top 20!

Glamorous divas from across fashion, entertainment and even corporate hotties have made it to Maxim Magazine's annual Hot 100 list.

With millions of votes cast by enthusiastic readers, here are the 20 ladies who emerged victorious.
