How fitting: The world's most beautiful woman plans to get married in a country known for its spectacular weddings!

Smoking hot Americn singer-songwriter Katy Perry, who hopes to marry British comedian Russell Brand in India later this year, has been named the world's hottest woman by men's magazine Maxim!

In doing so, she knocked last year's winner, House star Olivia Wilde, to number 20, while also fending off the likes of singer Rihanna, Transformers star Megan Fox and socialite Kim Kardashian.

Perry was chosen for being "a triple -- no, quadruple -- kind of hot," Maxim Editor-in-Chief Joe Levy reportedly said of the decision.

"It's that feeling you get when you suddenly realize that the smartest, funniest, coolest girl you know also happens to the best looking and a pretty good skateboarder, too. All of sudden, your crush goes supernova, and this is Katy's supernova moment," he added.

Oh, and did we mention how Perry shot to international fame? Her hit song I kissed a girl, of course. Talk about hot!

Let's take a look at the rest of the top 10.

After her super-charged performance in Avatar, we knew Zoe Saldana was out-of-this-world hot.

Maxim agrees, and has her placed number three. So, if you felt strangely attracted to her blue, magnetic femininity during the film, don't feel so bad. We all were!

Transformers star Megan Fox, who has dominated these lists for the last few years, slipped all the way from number 2 to number 5.

But don't worry; she's nowhere near over the hell. Fox is only 24, and her best days are probably still ahead of her!

Super sexy musician Rihanna, incidentally Katy Perry's good friend, comes next, at number six.

The 22-year-old Umbrella hitmaker has perfect skin, a figure to die for and captivating eyes.

Now, if only she'd lose the bad boy love interests.

Socialite Kim Kardashian is hot. Super hot. And she knows it, which is why she agreed to pose nude for the December 2007 issue of Playboy magazine.

With a bodacious backside and an angelic face, Kim's been breaking hearts for years: including that of American football star Reggie Bush, whom she dated for two years. The couple split last July.
