Meet the planet’s sexiest woman — at least for this year.
The top spot on the 2019 Maxim Hot 100 ranking belongs to Rhode Island native Olivia Culpo.
“I’ve always looked at the Maxim Hot 100 with admiration,” the 27-year-old posted alongside the magazine’s July/August cover on her Instagram, which has 4.1 million followers. “There have been so many smart and successful women featured who have inspired me and my career in countless ways which makes this cover so meaningful to me. It still doesn’t feel real!”
The brunette model and Instagram influencer leaves little to the imagination on the issue’s cover, looking off into the middle-distance while clad in a transparent robe, hoop earrings, lace underwear and nothing else.
In addition to being exceedingly attractive, the former Miss Universe 2012 is a free woman after splitting from her former boyfriend, Detroit Lions wide receiver Danny Amendola. Rumor has it she was spotted getting cozy in May with power producer Zedd — but the internet really wants her to end up with newly single Bradley Cooper.
The Maxim Hot 100 is hardly her first magazine honor. Culpo is also a familiar face — and body — to fans of the annual Sport’s Illustrated swimsuit issue.
The Maxim 100 launched in 2000 and has previously awarded its top honor to Taylor Swift, Jessica Alba, Katy Perry, Hailey Baldwin, Miley Cyrus, Lindsay Lohan, Jennifer Garner and Sports Illustrated cover gal Kate Upton.
