As 2012 comes to a close, it seems only appropriate to reflect on the events of the past year. And oh, what a wild year it has been. There were natural disasters—like Hurricane Sandy; tan mom Patricia Krentcil; the Fiscal Cliff; Mark Sanchez—that threatened to get the best of our spirits. Then just when we thought things couldn’t get any worse...this <a href="http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y231/ryanro24/Kate-Upton-GIF-0201.gif" target="_blank">happened</a>. However, gentlemen, we survived all of it. And quite frankly, we have hot women to thank for that. We may never be able to repay them for what they’ve given us (the <a href="http://www.mensfitness.com/women/galleries/victoria%E2%80%99s-secrets-10... target="_blank">Victoria’s Secret fashion show</a>, for example), so we figured the next best thing was to pay tribute. So without further interruption, we present to you <em>Mensfitness.com’s</em> 25 Sexiest Vixens of 2012.
<a href="mensfitness.com/women/galleries/mf’s-25-hottest-women-of-2012?page=2" target="_blank">25 Hottest Women of 2012 >>></a>
25. Sofia Vergara
She has curves in all the right places, a feisty Latina attitude, she’s funny as hell, and she stars on one of the hottest shows on primetime TV. If Al Bundy is good enough to be her television husband, imagine what she’d think of us?
24. Kristen Stewart
Now that her <em>Twilight</em> days are coming to a close (thank the freaking Lord!), we look forward to seeing Kristen’s other talents—not that we’ll ever be able to stop thinking about her as a blood-sucking vampire.
23. Bérénice Marlohe
When a woman is selected to be a “Bond Girl”, there’s a certain degree of hotness we expect. And in this year’s <em>Skyfall</em>, Bérénice was far from a let down. The French-Cambodian actress had to convince Daniel Craig to go fully nude in their steamy shower sex scene, because, she says, “he was very shy.” We feel you, bro.
22. Kim Kardashian
Ok, we can all agree that she’s overexposed, her reality show sucks, blah blah blah. But we’re probably also in agreement on one more thing: just when we think we’ve had enough of the Kardashian’s, Kim goes and tweets a picture like <a href="http://poponthepop.com/gallery/kim-kardashian-cleavage-tweet/" target="_blank">this</a>.
21. Hannah Simone
If you’re not tuning into the <em>New Girl</em> every week then you are seriously missing out. When we’re not cracking up over Schmidt’s amazingly awesome douchey-ness we’re impatiently waiting to get an eyeful of his sex on a stick co-star Hannah, who plays what else but a model. The dark-haired, dark-eyed vixen is so smokin’, we often find ourselves thinking, “Zooey Deschanel who?”
20. Mandy Drury
Ever notice how news anchors seem to be getting hotter and hotter these days? Case in point: Mandy Drury. The Australian-born journalist and CNBC anchor makes hearing about the Fiscal Cliff infinitely more appealing. And that’s saying a lot. A whole lot.
19. Scarlett Johansson
Let’s all pause for a moment to acknowledge the sexiness that was Scarlett’s black jumpsuit in <em>The Avengers</em>. Here’s hoping 2013 brings us as much joy as that mental image of Scar-Jo in skin-tight leather has.
The stunning <em>Top Chef</em> host knows the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. She’s a foodie that’s also drop-dead gorgeous...consider our appetites thoroughly whet.
16. Jennifer Lopez
What’s a list of red-hot women without the incomparable J.Lo? While she may be a few decades older than some of these other babes we’re pretty sure her body has actually gotten <em>more</em> impressive with age. Now if only she would dump her 20-something choreographer boyfriend and call us up instead...
15. Rita Ora
It’s no wonder the sultry—and newly single—British singer-songwriter caught the attention of Jay-Z (he signed her to his label in 2009). Girls like Rita make us wonder what else we’re missing out on across the pond in the U.K.
14. Mila Kunis
Not only does Mila Kunis have that whole Russian seductress thing going on; she’s a damn good actress to boot. She starred opposite a stuffed animal in this year’s <em>Ted</em> and actually made it entertaining which earns our enthusiastic stamp of approval.
13. Jessica Paré
We’ll admit it: as Don Draper’s wife Megan on <em>Mad Men</em> there were times we loved her, and other times when we couldn’t stand her. But then this <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FkX9PnJxado" target="_blank">happened</a> and we’ve been sold ever since.
12. Carly Rae Jepsen
Sure, her hit song “Call Me Maybe” will be stuck in our heads until the End of Days but what would 2012 have been without it? And what would you have used as a pick-up line these last hundred times (come on, you know you did!) It also doesn’t hurt that the perky Canadian singer reminds us of our best friend’s cute sister we’ve always wanted to hook up with. Carly Rae—you may be our guiltiest pleasure of the year.
11. Nicki Minaj
The living embodiment of the hot/crazy scale Nicki Minaj has the uncanny ability to turn us on/scare the hell out of us (she’s cra-cra, no?). While we love her no-bullshit attitude and mega-confidence, let’s get real: those mind-blowing curves are her greatest <em>ass</em>et.
10. Allison Williams
Newsflash: As Marnie on HBO’s <em>Girls</em>, this now famous daughter of Brian Williams, NBC’s <em> Nightly News</em> anchor, is arguably TV’s biggest (and hottest) breakout star of the year. She fooled us into thinking Marnie was an innocent, goody two-shoes until that <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ONZPcT11vhw" target="_blank"><em>touching</em> scene</a> where she gets really hot and heavy...with herself. You get the picture.
9. Olivia Munn
The former <em>Playboy</em> Babe of the Month completely won us over this year. Thanks to Aaron Sorkin’s <em>Newsroom</em>, we got to see Olivia in all her freckled glory play Sloan Sabbith, a passionate—and nerdy—financial news reporter. Before her, dorky never looked so sexy.
8. Liu Wen
She’s been called the “World’s Most Famous Chinese Model,” but we’ll just call her the sexiest chick to walk the Victoria’s Secret runway this year. There’s something undeniably raw and mysterious about Wen. We don’t know what it is but we do know that it always leaves us wanting more...
7. Emma Stone
Those gorgeous green eyes, those adorable dimples, that sexy gritty voice....whether she’s going red or back to blonde, Spiderman’s charming main squeeze has us forever trapped in her seductive web. A truly rare breed, Emma’s the type of girl that we could kick back and drink a beer with, and then dream of waking up next to...naked. She’s got the quirky thing mastered—and we like it.
We can’t say much about her questionable choice in men, but what we <em>can</em> say is that nobody knows how to rock a bikini like RiRi. This beach loving ‘Bad Girl’ made us want to misbehave. All. Year. Long.
5. Miranda Kerr
God created bras and panties and life was good. Then He created Miranda Kerr and life as we know it was altered forever. The Victoria’s Secret Angel is a gift to men everywhere and we will never <em>ever</em> be able to give enough thanks. Amen.
4. Erin Andrews
Nothing draws our attention away from the game quite like this hottie reporting on the sidelines. The Fox TV host represents the holy male trifecta: killer body, gorgeous face and an infinite knowledge of sports. Does is get any better than that? Didn’t think so.
3. Kerry Washington
We’re totally crushing on Kerry right now. The sultry star is having her best year ever and she’s never looked better. And while we may not have seen her new show <em>Scandal</em> yet, we hear that her character is in a major position of power. And that’s our very favorite position of all.
2. Kate Upton
No surprise here. From the moment she took front and steamy center on the cover of this year’s <em>Sports Illustrated</em> Swimsuit Issue the quintessential blonde bombshell was all anyone could talk about—and with good reason. Seriously... have you <em>seen</em> the <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UeJatEw_NJc" target="_blank">video</a> of her doing the Cat Daddy dance in a teeny, tiny bikini?
1. Jennifer Lawrence
In a post-Apocalyptic world there’s nobody we’d rather hole up with in a cave than this year’s It Girl. The thing we find sexiest about her? She is a walking contradiction: wholesome enough to bring home to mom and dad, yet she wouldn’t hesitate to kick your ass the second you crossed her. May your odds be ever in <a href="http://www.mensfitness.com/women/jennifer-lawrence-most-desirable-woman-... target="_blank">her favor</a>.
