Beauty is in the eye of the beholder — as is sex appeal. How else can one explain the rankings on this year’s Maxim Hot 100 list? While many of pop’s leading ladies landed a coveted slot on the magazines “Definitive List Of The World’s Most Beautiful Women”, there were some surprising omissions and placements this year. First off, Beyonce, who already holds the title of World’s Most Beautiful Woman from People, doesn’t even make the list.

For her part, Rihanna, the fiery vixen who can barely keep her clothes on when a camera is around, only landed at #32, six slots below usually-clothed Taylor Swift. Our sincerest congratulations to Katy Perry, though, who landed among the top tier at #4. See the rest of music’s hottest gals fared below.
