Michelle Keegan pipped to the post for ‘Sexiest Woman in the World’ crown

It’s official – Jennifer Lawrence is the ‘sexiest woman in the world’.

The Oscar-winning actress has topped FHM magazine’s annual ‘100 Sexiest Women in the World’ poll taking the crown from 2013 winner Mila Kunis, who drops to sixth place.

Jennifer, 23, narrowly beat Michelle Keegan to the title, with the Corrie star finishing in second place!

Although she just missed out on the top spot, Mark Wright’s fiancée was still thrilled to finish as runner-up.

”I’m so flattered. I believe that being ‘sexy’ isn’t wearing lots of heavy make-up or having the perfect hair or figure, it’s about self-confidence, being comfortable with yourself, smiling and being happy!” she said.

Rounding off the top five are Rihanna in third spot, fourth placed model Emily Ratajkowski – who received worldwide attention after appearing naked in Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines video – and Big Bang Theory actress Kaley Cuoco in fifth.

Other top 10 placed stars include Beyoncé in seventh spot, Nicole Scherzinger in ninth and Scarlett Johansson in tenth.

Some interesting entries in the list include TV chef Nigella Lawson at number 21, Kate Moss at 42, Jennifer Aniston at 36 and supermodel Cara Delevingne at only number 54!
