Men's Health has released its list of the 100 hottest women in the world. We bring you the top ten.

We love lists and this one simply couldn't miss our eyes. Men's Health magazine drew out a list of the top 100 sexiest women in the world. The list that includes supermodel Bar Refaeli, singers Taylor Swift and Rihanna and actress Emma Stone among others is exhaustive and downright smokin hot.

Here are the top ten hottest women according to the good folks at Men's Health magazine:

10. Amber Heard

So, Johnny Depp -- yeah, the same smokey sexy fellow that women and men swoon over -- divorced his wife, moved into her $15 million Tennessee mansion, named a bay on his Bahamas isle after her and found himself being dumped for a girl!

Depp, it seemed, had met his match in Amber Heard the sexy actress who starred alongside him in The Rum Diary and loves her guns and muscle cars as much as her women.

Last heard, Depp was reportedly heartbroken for when he was still making plans to produce babies with her, Heard was with her girlfriend in Paris!

Well played, Amber.

Heard: 1, Depp: 0

9. Gisele Bundchen

Mother of one and the only supermodel in the Forbes list of the most powerful women celebrity, Gisele Bundchen appears at number nine on the Men's Health list.

Besides endorsing multiple brands including Pantene, Esprit and Versace among others, Bundchen is involved in numerous relief projects around the world.

More recently she is believed to have turned down $20 million to be the spokesperson of a human cloning company.

Sure she doesn't need the money; she is, according to The Guinness Book of Records the world's richest supermodel. But we can't help fantasising much like the good folks at Men's Health of the possibilities -- 'a Bundchen in every home'!

Sigh! If only!

8. Beyonce

So, here's what Beyonce did last year:

1. Gave birth to daughter Blue Ivy Carter in January.

2. Delivered a sold-out four-night performance in May.

3. Released a new album.

4. Made it to the power list of the top 10 celebrity women of Forbes.

Should we even bother going on?


7. Angelina Jolie

Oscar-winner, mother-of-six, Lara Croft and owner of Angelina Jolie's right leg. Do you still need reasons?

6. Scarlett Johansson

Here's how Hollywood works:

1. Woody Allen spots a pretty young thing long before anyone else does.

2. The rest of the industry follows.

3. She blossoms into THIS!

Exhibit A.

Bam! Case closed!

5. Jennifer Aniston

With THAT picture alongside, do we even NEED to tell you why we're drooling over Jennifer Aniston?

We rest our case.

4. Jennifer Lawrence

There are three reasons we love Jennifer Lawrence (not necessarily in this order) -- The Hunger Games, X Men: First Class and more recently Silver Linings Playbook.

And with that, we say no more.

3. Christina Hendricks

Credited as having an ideal shape for a woman is more than just a compliment in these size zero obsessed times. Christina Hendricks, best known for her role in the popular American television series Mad Men is number three on the Men's Health list of hottest women.

2. Mila Kunis

She's all of 29 and has come a long way since her appearance in the famous sitcom That 70s Show.

Over the years, she's made more than a mark for herself playing roles in films such as Forgetting Sarah Marshall as well holding out her own against Denzel Washington in the unbearable The Book of Eli.

The feather in the cap however came only recently as she played her most critically acclaimed role yet in Black Swan.

She's been named Sexiest Woman Alive by Esquire magazine and regularly appears in various 'hottest' lists in the media.

1. Katy Perry

There's a reason the folks at Men's Health love Katy Perry. For one, there's the obvious reason -- or two to be precise.

That apart, the sexy singer-actress who is the only other musician besides Michael Jackson to have five No 1 singles from the same album and turned her bad break up into a smash hit album, Teenage Dream is among the ten highest paid women in music according to Forbes and grosses millions of dollars in tours and record sales.

Perry is all of 28 and has been nominated for eight Grammy awards including album of the year and is the only singer to ever spend more than a solid year in the top 10 of the Billboard charts.

As the good men at Men's Health point out her Twitter following is four times the population of New York City.

That's enough reasons to have her as the hottest woman of 2013, right?
