When Idris Elba was named People’s sexiest man alive, absolutely no one disputed. And today, we learn that Olivia Culpo has been named the sexiest woman of the year – and we certainly aren’t going to argue!

The 27-year-old former Miss Universe received the number one spot on Maxim’s Hot 100 list, beating the likes of stunners such as Margot Robbie, Jessica Alba, Zoe Saldana, Lucy Hale, and Victoria’s Secret Angel Alessandra Ambrosio.

Being awarded the title of the hottest woman of the year is pretty special – so special, in fact, that Olivia Culpo said was a dream come true…

“It’s honestly something that I’ve always dreamed of since I was so little. It’s really humbling,” Olivia said.

“There are so many women who have been in this same position before that I have looked up to for so many years. I thrive off the success of other women because a win for one of us is, in my opinion, a win for all of us.”

We’ll take that!

Congratulations, Ms. Culpo!
