Huntington-Whiteley tops Maxim's Hot 100 list

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has topped Maxim magazine's 2011 Hot 100 list.

The sultry Victoria's Secret model – who is dating actor Jason Statham – took the coveted top slot in the publication's annual rankings of the world's most attractive women.

Rosie told the magazine that it was a "huge honour" to be given first place in the poll which includes actresses, musicians, sports stars and other models.

The 24-year-old beauty said: "It's a great title to have for a year and you can have some fun with it, I think."

Last year, Katy Perry took the top slot but fell two places for the latest list, coming in at third place after Olivia Munn.

Not far behind Rosie this year are Cameron Diaz and Mila Junis in fourth and fifth place respectively.

Making up the rest of the top 10 are supermodel Bar Rafaeli, actresses Anne Hathaway, Natalie Portman, Cobie Smulders and Jennifer Lawrence.

Britain's latest member of the royal family, Kate Middleton aka the new Duchess of Cambridge, came in at number 26 on the list, making her higher ranked than former Pussycat Dolls star Nicole Scherzinger, Lindsay Lohan and reality star Kim Kardashian.

Rosie has admitted in the past that she gives her sex appeal a boost by putting chicken fillets in her bra.

She said: "I'm not a fan of that whole push-up look in the day, but, of course, you do need a lift with a sexy dress.

"Do what you've got to do girls - shove them in there. I've been known to have three in at a time for shoots - plus padding."
