Here's a look at the annual list of sexy sirens compiled by AskMen.com.

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.

We bring you the beautiful bombshells who've made it to the top 25 for 2014 -- check it out!

No 1: Emilia Clarke

She’s single, and incredibly hot.

No wonder then, Emilia Clarke has been named AskMen's most desirable woman of 2014.

The Game Of Thrones star, who plays formidable Mother of Dragons Danaerys Targaryen, does not shy from displaying her assets in the television series.

Best of all? The 26-year-old English actress is single, according to WSJ.com.

This stunning young actress may be well on her way to creating an Oscar record.

If she wins in the Best Supporting Actress category this year – she's been nominated for American Hustle -- she will be the first nominee to win the coveted award in two different categories in two consecutive years.

For now though, the 23-year-old Jennifer Lawrence (who was number 1 last year) has set a sizzling standard here at No 4.
