Maxim released their Hot 100, which is a list of women ranked by their appearance, and model Kate Upton took the top slot.

 

The number one slot has been taken by a variety of women, from models like Stella Maxwell and Hailey Baldwin to pop stars like Taylor Swift.

 

Upton was selected for how she exudes "Americana" and looks similar to the iconic Marilyn Monroe. Maxim describes her as having, "Enviable curves, a sweet smile, and, remarkably, a good old-fashioned work ethic."

You know, I work really hard on myself: on feeling good, working out, being strong. Being number one on the Hot 100 is a little reward for all of the hard work.

Upton said she was honored to be on top of the list, explaining, "You know, I work really hard on myself: on feeling good, working out, being strong. Being number one on the Hot 100 is a little reward for all of the hard work."

Upton was born in St. Joseph, Michigan and never thought of a future in the fashion industry. Eventually, she was attracted to a career as a model.

 

"It seemed very glamorous," she said. "You know, being able to travel and meet new people and experience new things."
