Rosie Huntington Whiteley: Hottest Woman in the World, According to 'Maxim' (VIDEO)

Esteemed lad-mag Maxim has announced its "Definitive List of the World's Most Beautiful Women," and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is at the very top of the list.

If that name isn't ringing a bell, you'll probably know her soon enough—she's the British 24-year-old Victoria's Secret model who plays Shia LaBeouf's new love interest in the newest installment of the Transformers series, Transformers: Dark of the Moon.

Poor Megan Fox, slagging on the franchise that made her famous, then getting replaced by this brand-new hottie. Was there ever any doubt that Michael Bay could find an equally boner-inducing star?

Not only that, Fox has been downgraded to #17 on Maxim's list. Ouch.


Huntington-Whiteley is not only painfully good-looking, she's also dating my boyfriend Jason Statham. So ... I guess it's time to give up my long-running fantasy that he's actually got a thing for frumpy 30-something suburban moms.

Of the 100 world's sexiest women, here's the list of the top 20:

20. Taylor Swift  

19. Anna Kournikova
18. Eva Mendes
17. Megan Fox
16. Leighton Meester
15. Olivia Wilde
14. Scarlett Johansson
13. Kaley Cuoco
12. January Jones
11. Jordana Brewster
10. Jennifer Lawrence
9. Cobie Smulders
8. Natalie Portman
7. Anne Hathaway
6. Bar Refaeli
5. Mila Kunis
4. Cameron Diaz
3. Katy Perry
2. Olivia Munn

And of course, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley at Numero Uno.
