Men’s magazine FHM unveiled its annual 100 Sexiest Women In The World poll with a partyWednesday night – it was just a shame that none of them had turned up at the bash, held at the One Marylebone club.
Transformers 3 hottie Rosie Huntington-Whiteley won the coveted Sexiest Woman in the World title for the first time ever, just days after landing a similiar title from Maxim magazine. She knocked Cheryl Cole from the title Cole has held for the past two years. Cheryl dropped out of the top 10 completely, falling to 12th place on the list.
Rosie – who is dating actor Jason Statham – managed to send a message to the assembled guests however saying: “Wow. Thanks for voting guys, I’m so flattered to be FHM’s Sexiest Woman in the World. This is a really exciting year for me and I hope you all enjoy Transformers 3.”
Other British to win the title in the poll’s 17-year history include Keira Knightley in 2006 and Kelly Brook in 2005.
This year, Katy Perry took second place, knocking former 2008 champion Megan Fox back into fourth.
Fellow pop princess Rihanna also rocketed up the rankings, climbing 40 places to third. It’s the first time either star has made the top ten.
This year’s Top 10 also sees new entries from actress Brooklyn Decker at number six and footballer Cristiano Ronaldo’s Russian model girlfriend Irina Shayk at 10.
And newlywed Kate Middleton is ranked 39th this year. The Duchess entered the list previously with a number 25 ranking in 2007. Prince Harry’s on/off girlfriend Chelsy Davy was placed at 96.

Stuart Hood from FHM commented: “Strong showings from Katy Perry, Rihanna and actress Olivia Wilde give this year’s poll a very American flavour, while the high rankings of less widely known swimsuit models Brooklyn Decker and Irina Shayk highlight either just how internet-savvy British men have become or just how obsessed with WAGs we still are. Decker is married to American tennis star Andy Roddick and Shayk dates Cristiano Ronaldo.”
Among the 31 women who dropped completely off the list were Jennifer Aniston – the first time she has not featured in the list since it started in 1996 – Sienna Miller, Lily Allen and Charlotte Church.
