The 25 sexiest countries in the world
A few years ago we ranked the 25 sexiest countries in the world. Since then we're discovered hundreds more beautiful women from around the globe. Time to update the list!
Mind you, this list isn't based on the average woman walking down the street. It's based on models, actresses, athletes, you know, the famous people. As you look through this list just keep two things in mind: (1) you will disagree with the list, and (2) there are over 1,000 sexy women listed here (we added over 500 since last time) so don't whine too loudly when you do. (Also, if you print out the pics on each page and cut them out, you've got a HOT BABES OF THE WORLD TRADING CARD set!!)
(NOTE: PREVIOUS RANK FOR EACH COUNTRY IN PARENTHESIS)

Let's face facts here. Nina Agdal is all the reason we need to put Denmark on this list. But when you throw in models like Louise Pederson, May Anderson, Helena Christensen, Dioni Tabbers and others, Denmark becomes a lock.
Other sexy Danish women of note: Anine Bing, Anna Trosko, Cecile Thomsen, Celina Hilslev, Ditte Campion, Emily Sears, Malene Espensen (above), Mia Rosing, Pia Muehlenbeck, Sharin Foo
The recent addition of Sara Sampaio to the Victoria's Secret stable keeps Portugal on the list. Not that a country boasting women like Dania Neto, Claudia Borges and Bastet Xutos needed any help. Unfortunately, of the Portuguese women we discovered the past few years, Sara Sampaio was the only woman with major international bonafides to really catch our eye.
Other sexy Portuguese women of note: Ana Free, Catarina Jardim, Claudia Borges (above), Claudia Vieira, Diana Pereira, Helena Costa, Iva Domingues, Joana Duarte, Liliana Campos, Liliana Queiroz (above), Luciana Abreu, Lucia Garcia, Mafalda Teixeira, Nadia Lopes, Rita Andrade, Sara Hilario, Sara Santos
The sexiest addition to this list of Romanian women has got to be one Madalina Ghenea, ex-girlfriend of Leonardo DiCaprio (thank you for the introduction, Leo). Of course, we were already fascinated with Alina Vacariu and Alina Puscau, but Catrinel Menghia's Fiat commercials and her continued dominance of everything sexy keeps Romania firmly in the top 25.
Other sexy Romanian women of note: Andreea Mantea, Antonia Iacobescu, Cristina Dochianu, Diana Dumitrescu, Elena Gheorghe, Gina Pistol, Laura Cosoi, Monica Barladeanu, Monica Dascalu, Oana Zavoranu, Otilia Aionesei, Roxana Tanase, Valentina Pelinel
Over the past few years the Ukraine hasn't been the dominant sexy force it once was. ("The Ukraine not weak.") Sure, we still love Karina Smirnoff (especially in Playboy), and sure Mila Kunis is still Mila Kunis, but we haven't seen much new blood come out of the Ukraine recently.
Other sexy Ukrainian women of note: Ani Lorak, Anna Sedokova, Anna Zakusylo, Dasha Astafieva (above), Katie Fey (above), Milla Jovovich (above), Larysa Poznyak, Lilya Kulik, Luba Shumeyko, Natalia Chabanenko, Natasha Yarovenko, Olga Kurylenko, Olga Maliouk, Ruslana, Tatyana Vorzheva
Venezuela moves up a few notches based on our discovery of several women: Monica Spear, Gaby Espino, Sonia Vera, the Avellan sisters - Electra and Elise, and the continued presence of women like Dayana Mendoza, Michelle Lewin, Claudia La Gatta, and Aida Yespica, among others.
Other sexy Venezuelan women of note: Anabell Rivero, Carolina Marconi, Catherine Fulop, Christina Dieckmann, Claudia Suarez, Daniella Navarro, Gabriela Paez, Jessika Grau, Lidymar Escalona, Myriam Abreu, Norelys Rodriguez (above), Norkys Batista, Patricia Fuenmeyor, Patricia Velasquez, Stefania Fernandez
Where to begin? Denise Milani is a good place to start. Also at the top of the Czech batting order would have to be Daniela Pestova, Karolina Kurkova, Petra Cubonova, and Petra Nemcova. And we haven't even mentioned Eva Herzigova, Hana Soukupova, and Veronika Varekova yet. That's quite a Murderer's Row of successful models, isn't it? Unfortunately we already knew about all of them several years ago as well. Where's the next generation of supermodels?
Other sexy Czech women of note: Alena Seredova, Denisa Dvorakova, Helena Houdova, Jana Cova, Jitka Novackova, Paulina Porizkova, Pavlina Nemcova, Tereza Maxova, Linda Vojtova, Tat'ana Kucharova, Veronika Fasterova
India is back with another strong showing lead by newcomer to this list Priyanka Chopra. Bipasha Basu, Mallika Sherawat, Freida Pinto, Padma Lakshmi and Aishwarya Rai continue to shine, but we have hardly seen Aishwarya since the last time we made this list. We have added several new names, but none of them quite have her star power yet. Maybe next time India will move up the rankings.
Other sexy Indian women of note: Chitrangada Singh, Deepika Padukone, Katrina Kaif, Koena Mitra, Lisa Haydon, Malaika Arora Khan, Minissha Lamba, Monikangana Dutta, Nargis Fakhri, Neha Dhupia, Riya Sen, Shilpa Shetty, Shruti Haasan, Shazahn Padamsee, Sonam Kapoor, Vidya Balan, Ujjwala Raut
Berenice Marlohe, Clemence Poesy, Nabilla Benattia, Camille Rowe, Filippa Hamilton, Eva Green...all new names to this list forcing us to move France up a few notches. Add in mainstays Emmanuelle Beart, Constance Jablonski, Marion Cotillard, Noemie Lenoir, and Laetitia Casta and you've got yourself one sexy little country there.
Other sexy French women of note: Alyson Le Borges, Angelique Boyer, Aurelie Claudel, Clara Morgane, Heloise Guerin, Jennifer Lamiraqui, Laura Tanguy, Louise Bourgoin, Ludivine Sagnier, Marie Ange Casta, Marie de Villepin, Morgane Dubled, Melissa Theuriau, Sophie Marceau, Virginie Ledoyen, Vanessa Paradis
In the past few years we have discovered several sexy German women including Lena Gercke, Janine Habeck, Romina Becks, and Toni Garrn. (Leo also discovered Toni - he's quite the resource.) Add them - and others below - an already impressive list which includes Collien Fernandes, Hana Nitsche, Heidi Klum, Diane Kruger, and Claudia Schiffer and it's easy to see why their ranking improved.
Other sexy German women of note: Alexandra Kamp, Anne Julia Hagen, Barbara Meier, Elisabeth Rohm, Eva Habermann, Eva Padberg (above), Franziska Knuppe (above), Jeanette Biedermann, Jessica Boehrs, Julia Stegner, Mandy Capristo, Natalia Avelon, Nina Eichinger, Nora Tschirner, Sarah Brandner, Sarah Connor, Sophia Thomalla, Verona Pooth, Veronica Hugo
We haven't seen many new additions to this list from The Hellenic Republic lately. Georgia Salpa is one fine exception, of course. Still, when your country has only 11 million people and you can produce gorgeous women like Julia Alexandratou, Olga Farmaki, Sasha Basta, Christina Stefanidi, Ria Antoniou, and Eva Laskari, it's very impressive.
Other sexy Greek women of note: Artemis Alexandratou, Axia Andreadaki, Christina Koletsa, Christina Moustaka, Despina Vandi, Diana Ygropoulou, Eirini Karra, Evangelia Aravani, Evelina Papantoniou, Gina Athans, Helena Paparizou, Iliana Papageorgiou, Ioanna Ntenti, Katerina Papoutsaki, Katerina Stikoudi, Katia Zygouli, Mara Darmousli, Maria Louiza Vourou, Marietta Chrousala, Natali Thanou, Paulina Kostagiou, Patricia Millik-Peristeri, Sofia Georgiou, Stella Dimetriou, Valentini Daskaloudi
The Netherlands pretty much holds serve with their ranking based on the continued presence of Marloes Horst, Doutzen Kroes, and Lara Stone, and the additions of Daphne Groeneveld, Kim Noorda, Valerie Van Der Graaf, and Bette Franke, among others. Having three supermodels at the top of their order makes for a strong lineup.
Other sexy Dutch women of note: Bregje Heinen, Cato Van Ee, Christa Meuleman, Daniella van Graas, Dewi Driegen, Esha Janssen, Famke Janssen, Frederique van der Wal, Jill de Jong, Karen Mulder, Kim Feenstra, Kim Kotter, Lonneke Engel (above), Patricia van der Vliet, Saskia de Brauw, Suzanne De Jong, Sylvia Geersen, Sylvie van der Vaart, Tatjana Simic, Yfke Sturm
Any country that was once home to the famous "Swedish Bikini Team" is going to have some sexy women. And with ladies like Ida Ljungqvist, Mini Anden, Petra Silander, Elsa Hosk, Frida Gustavsson, and Johanna Lundback, the legacy of their bikini team is in good hands for years to come.
Other sexy Swedish women of note: Andrea Myrander, Caroline Winberg, Dani Karlson, Elin Grindemyr, Elin Lanto, Elin Nordegren, Elita Lofblad, Helena Mattsson, Katarina Wigander, Klara Wester, Liza Berggren, Natacha Peyre, Oksana Andersson, Princess Madeleine, Victoria Silvstedt (above)
Poland makes a big jump in ranking based on the recent succession of sexy, famous women to come to our attention like Natalia Siwiec and Monika Pietrasinska, combined with their holdovers including Joanna Krupa, Magdalena Frackowiak, Klaudia El Dursi, Ewelina Olczak, and Anja Rubik. If there's one thing the Polish do right, it's produce sexy lingerie models as evidenced by those aforementioned names.
Other sexy Polish women of note: Anna Jagodzinska, Angela Turkusowa, Angelika Jakubowska, Dorothy Gardias, Inez Lajblich, Izabella Miko, Kasia Smutniak, Kasia Struss, Laura Drzewicka, Magdalena Oliwa, Magdalena Wrobel, Marta Krupa, Patrycja Farbis, Patrycja Mikula, Sandra Brec, Sylwia Wojciech
Is Italy slipping? Based on the number of new additions to this list one would have to say, "a little bit." Still, when you boast women like Elisabetta Gregoraci, Bianca Balti, Ilary Blasi, Melissa Satta, Giorgia Palmas, Monica Bellucci, and Asia Argento, among others, you'd have to say that they're still doing something right. And they are.
Other sexy Italian women of note: Alessia Marcuzzi, Anna Falchi, Caterina Murino, Cristina Chiabotto, Elena Santarelli, Elisa Sednaoui, Elisabetta Canalis, Federica Fontana (above), Federica Pellegrini, Federica Ridolfi, Francesca Chillemi, Giovanna Mezzogiorno, Lucilla Agosti, Manuela Arcuri, Maria Grazia Cucinotta, Martina Stella, Sara Tommasi
South Africa has simply been on fire the past few years. New women we've discovered include Nicole Meyer, Lauren Mellor, Dominique Piek, Natasha Barnard, Careen Truter, Shane van der Westhuizen, and Elbe van der Merwe. Throw in Candice Swanepoel, Jenna Pietersen, Candice Boucher, Genevieve Morton, and oh yeah, Charlize Theron and you could make an easy argument South Africa is top 10 material.
Other sexy South African women of note: Georgina Grenville, Joelle Kayembe, Kerry McGregor, Landi Swanepoel, Lee-Ann Liebenberg, Lieschen Botes, Liza Botha, Lyndall Jarvis (above), Karlien Seegers, Tammin Sursok, Tanit Phoenix, Terry Pheto, Tracy McGregor
Russia still holds a sport in the top 10 despite a startling lack of big name new faces over the past couple of years. (Though imagine if the Soviet Union were still in tact how long this list could be.) Still, the names left over from last time are nothing to sneeze at with Anne Vyalitsyna, Irina Shayk, Laura Blokhina, Natasha Poly, Natalia Vodianova, Daria Konovalova, and Yulia Snigir still killing it on a regular basis. Too bad we haven't seen more of Anna Kournikova though.
Other sexy Russian women of note: Albina Dzhanabaeva, Alsou, Anna Semenovich, Anna Selezneva, Anya Monzikova, Inna Popenko, Irena Ponaroshku, Irina Nikolaeva, Irina Voronina, Iryna Rozhik, Katia Ivanova, Liza Boyarskaya, Maria Berseneva, Maria Kirilenko, Maria Sharapova, Marina Orlova, Masha Novoselova, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, Natasha Alam, Olga Kobozina, Oksana Akinshina, Sasha Pivovarova, Svetlana Milinzova, Tatyana Andriyash, Tatiana Kovylina, Tatyana Kotova, Valentina Zelyaeva, Victoria Lopyreva, Vlada Roslyakova, Zhanna Friske
Considering it is second largest country in South America one would expect that there are a lot of sexy, famous women who come from there. One would be right. How does Luisana Lopilato, Belen Rodriguez, Carolina Ardohain, Yamila Diaz, Yesica Toscanini, Rocio Guirao Diaz, and Jesica Cirio sound? Sounds like a party to us.
Other sexy Argentinian women of note: Araceli Gonzalez, Belen Francese, Brenda Gandini, Carolina Baldini, Claudia Ciardone, Daniela Urzi, Dorismar, Florencia Salvioni, Ines Rivero, Karina Jelinek, Liz Solari (above), Lola Ponce, Luciana Salazar, Luli Fernandez, Maki Soler, Marcela Kloosterboer, Nicole Neumann, Pamela David, Romina Belluscio, Sofia Zamolo, Ursula Vagues, Valeria Mazza, Victoria Vanucci, Zaira Nara
Canada moves up the list based on a massive influx of gorgeous actresses, as well as a few models, into our collective conscience. Paulina Gretzky, Julia Voth, Zoe Duchesne, A.J. Cook, Jessica Pare, Misa Campo, Kate Bock, Emily VanCamp, Danielle Knudson, and Michea Crawford all jumped onto our radar in the last couple of years. Add them to mix of Kim Cloutier, Andi Muise, Malin Akerman, Rachel McAdams, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Elisha Cuthbert, Nina Dobrev, Trish Stratus, and many others and you see that Canada is good at more than just hockey.
Other sexy Canadian women of note: Alaina Huffman, Anna Paquin, Ashley Diana Morris, Avril Lavigne, Cobie Smulders, Coco Rocha, Daria Werbowy, Emmanuelle Vaugier, Erica Durance, Estella Warren, Evangeline Lilly, Grace Park, Heather Marks, Jayde Nicole, Jessica Lowndes, Jessica Lucas, Jessica Stam (above), Kathleen Robertson, Kristin Kreuk, Laura Vandervoort, Linda Evangelista, Maryse Ouellet, Melyssa Ford, Missy Peregrym, Pamela Anderson, Sarah Carter, Serinda Swan, Shalom Harlow, Stana Katic, Sunny Leone, Tricia Helfer
Sofia Vergara and Shakira may be the best known Colombian women in the world, and she certainly helps their ranking, but lingerie models like Sandra Valencia, Melissa Giraldo, Catalina Otalvaro, Carla Ossa, Natalia Velez, and Lina Posada really are what made Colombia move up in the rankings. They produce sexy models like they produce their coffee: very, very well.
Other sexy Colombian women of note: Adriana Arboleda, Ana Sofia Henao, Andrea Serna, Angie Cepeda, Camila Davalos, Carolina Guerra, Catalina Sandino Moreno, Daniela Tamayo, Danna Garcia, Jessica Cediel, Karen Bray, Lucia Tovar, Manuela Arbelaez, Maria Fernanda Yepez, Mariana Davalos, Natalia Paris, Paula Garces, Sara Corrales, Sara Jaramillo, Taliana Vargas, Vanessa Mendoza, Zulay Henao
For a country roughly the size of Louisiana England produces a plethora of gorgeous women. And the best part is the with their many lad magazines a whole bunch of them are willing to pose with little to no clothing on. For example: Kelly Brook, Lucy Pinder, Rosie Jones, Jessica-Jane Clement, Danielle Lloyd, Rhian Sugden. But they don't stop there, they also produce a large number of famous fashion models including Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Daisy Lowe, Cara Delevingne, Natalie Suliman, Suki Waterhouse, and Georgia May Jagger. And don't forget the actresses: Emma Watson, Emily Blunt, Lily Collins, Keira Knightley, Rachel Weisz, Emilia Clarke, and Kate Beckinsale to just name a few. And we haven't even touched on the singers yet.
Other sexy English women of note: Abigail Clancy, Alice Eve, Alice Goodwin, Amy Jackson, April Summers, Billie Piper, Charlie Webster, Charlotte Jackson, Cheryl Cole, Danica Thrall, Danni Wells, Emma Glover, Gemma Arterton, Gemma Atkinson, Gemma Merna, Elizabeth Hurley, Elle Liberachi, Emma B, Emma Frain, Francoise Boufhal, Hayley Atwell, Helen Flanagan, Holly Peers, India Reynolds, Jade Ewen, Jennifer Metcalfe, Jess Davies, Jessica Clark, Jorgie Porter, Jourdan Dunn, Kara Tointon, Kaya Scodelario, Kayleigh Pearson, Kitty Lea, Lauren Pope, Layla Kayleigh, Lily Donaldson, Lucy Mecklenburgh, Keeley Hazell, Lena Headey, Louise Thompson, Madison Welch, Melissa Clarke, Michelle Keegan, Naomi Campbell, Rachael Cordingley, Rachel Stevens, Rebecca Hall, Rhona Mitra, Rosamund Pike, Rosie Roff, Roxanne Pallett, Sammy Braddy, Sarah Harding, Sienna Miller, Sophie Howard, Sophie Reade, Suzanne Shaw, Talulah Riley, Tamara Ecclestone, Vanessa Perroncel, Victoria Moore, Vikki Blows
Anyone that is even slightly familiar with Spanish television knows just how many sexy women Spain has. Women like Sara Carbonero, Paula Echevarria, Paz Vega, Penelope and Monica Cruz dot the airwaves over there. And anyone who likes sexy models knows that there are just as many of them as there are sexy actresses including Diana Morales, Helen Lindes, Estefania Luyk, Edurne Garcia, and Ariadne Artiles.
Other sexy Spanish women of note: Adriana Abenia, Almudena Cid Tostado, Almudena Fernandez, Amaia Salamanca, Ana Fernandez, Anna Simon, Berta Collado Rivera, Blanca Suarez, Carolina Cerezuela, Circe De La Rosa, Clara Alonso, Cristina Brondo, Dafne Fernandez, Elena Anaya, Elena Furiase, Elsa Pataky (above), Eve Marie Gonzalez-Fernandez, Eugenia Silva, Gaby Bo, Inma Cuesta, Kira Miro, Lucia Lapiedra, Mamen Mendizabal, Manuela Velasco, Mar Saura, Marta Torne, Melanie Olivares, Michelle Jenner, Mirella Mendoza, Natalia Gallego, Nereida Gallardo, Nidyan Fabregat, Noelia Lopez, Patricia Conde, Paula Prendes, Pilar Rubio, Rebecca Linares, Sheila Marquez, Ursula Corbero, Vanessa Romero, Veronica Sanchez, Veruzhka Ramirez
If there is any country that can rival Spain for the number of sexy women on TV it's Mexico. And anyone with a passing interest in men's magazines out of Mexico knows that many of them (as well as dozens of sexy models) are more than willing to pose for sexy photographs. Women like Maite Perroni, Barbara Mori, Vanessa Huppenkothen, and Ninel Conde are just the tip of the iceberg. Several of these actresses have made their way into the U.S. and blown us away right here in the States including Elsa Benitez, Ines Sainz, Ana de la Reguera, Paulina Rubio, and Salma Hayek, just to name a few. They also have a recent Miss Universe in Ximena Navarrete. Excuse us for a second while we make a run for the border.
Other sexy Mexican women of note: Adriana Fonseca, Aleida Nunez, Alessandra Rosaldo, Altair Jarabo, Ana Claudia Talanco, Ana Patricia Gonzalez, Ana Serradilla, Anahi, Anahi Portillo, Anette Michel, Aracely Arambula, Arleth Teran, Aurora Robles, Blanca Soto, Camila Sodi, Claudia Lizaldi, Claudia Salinas, Cynthia Urias, Daniela de Jesus Cosio, Dulce Maria, Eiza Gonzalez, Elizabeth Gutierrez, Fabiola Campomanes, Fernanda Castillo, Gaby Ramirez, Galilea Montijo, Ines Gomez Mont, Ivonne Montero, Jacqueline Bracamontes, Julieta Grajales, Karla Diaz, Karyme Lozano, Laura Elizondo, Lili Brillanti, Liliana Domínguez, Luz Elena Gonzalez, Mariana Bayon, Mariana Ochoa, Marisol Gonzalez, Marlene Favela, Martha Higareda, Mayra Suarez, Mayrin Villanueva, Montserrat Oliver, Natalia Jimenez, Patricia Navidad, Paulina Flores, Sugey Abrego, Thalia, Vanessa Arias, Vanessa Villela, Yadhira Carrillo
Miranda Kerr alone gives Australia a jump on many countries, but when you mix in ladies like the legendary Elle Macpherson, former Miss Universe Jennifer Hawkins, supermodels like Jessica Hart and Abbey Lee Kershaw, lad mag faves such as Emily Scott, Tina Wallman, and Rachael Neiberding, and then toss in some top-of-the-line swimsuit models like Jessica Gomes, Lara Bingle, Shanina Shaik, and Elyse Taylor, you've got yourself one hell of a list. And we left out a whole bunch of other ladies who are just as amazing including all of the actresses, singers, and athletes. Check it out below.
Other sexy Australian women of note: Abbie Cornish, Anna Torv, Annette Melton, Ashley Cheadle, Candace Rae, Catherine McNeil, Clare Werbeloff, Danni Minogue, Delta Goodrem, Ellie Gonsalves, Emilie de Ravin, Erin McNaught, Gabriella Cilmi, Gemma Lee Farrell, Gemma Ward, Havana Brown, Holly Valance, Imogen Bailey, Isabel Lucas, Isla Fisher, Jesinta Campbell, Jessica Bratich, Kellie Crawford, Krystal Forscutt, Kylie Minogue, Laura Dundovic, Lyndsey Rodrigues, Megan Gale, Michelle Jenneke, Natalie Bassingthwaighte, Nicole Kidman, Nicole Trunfio, Nicky Whelan, Nikki Visser, Pania Rose, Rachael Finch, Rachael Taylor, Rose Byrne, Sarah Stephens, Sarita Stella, Siobhan Parekh, Simone Starr, Sophie Monk, Sophie Turner, Yvonne Strahovski
America: home of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and Victoria's Secret. The women who have posed for those two things alone would put the U.S. at the top if it weren't for one country. Women like Damaris Lewis, Jessica White, Kate Upton, Alyssa Miller, Chrissy Teigen, Hilary Rhoda, Hannah Davis, Julie Henderson, Brooklyn Decker, and dozens of other American ladies have donned the suits for SI over the recent years. Models such as Marisa Miller, Lily Aldridge, Emily DiDonato, Lindsay Ellingson, Chanel Iman, and Erin Heatherton have posed for Victoria's Secret. But it's Hollywood that really gives that United States a big boost with actresses like Jessica Alba, Minka Kelly, Halle Berry, Jennifer Lawrence, Alison Brie, Scarlett Johansson, Genesis Rodriguez, Megan Fox, Eva Mendes, and dozens of others that grace our small and big screens. If it just wasn't for that one country...
Other sexy Australian women of note: Adrianne Curry, Ali Michael, Amanda Seyfried, Amber Heard, Anne Hathaway, Ariel Meredith, Ashley Benson, Ashley Greene, Blake Lively, Bree Conden, Cameron Richardson, Cameron Russell, Camilla Belle, Carla Gugino, Christina Hendricks, Christy Turlington, Dani Evans, Darla Baker, Dianna Agron, Emmy Rossum, Eva Longoria, Frankie Ryder, Hope Dworaczyk, Jaclyn Swedberg, Jaime King, Jamie Chung, Jarah Mariano, Jasmine Tookes, Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Biel, Jessica Burciaga, Jessica Orr, Josie Maran, Julianne Hough, Katrina Bowden, Katy Perry, Kerry Washington, Kim Kardashian, Kristen Nicole, Kylie Bisutti, Leanna Decker, Leighton Meester, Lizzy Caplan, Maggi Caruthers, Martha Hunt, Melissa Baker, Melissa Bolona, Missy Rayder, Natalie Martinez, Natalie Pack, Nicole Scherzinger, Olivia Munn, Olivia Wilde, Paula Patton, Quiana Grant, Rachel Clark, Raquel Gibson, Raquel Pomplun, Rosario Dawson, Sara Jean Underwood (above), Sarah Shahi, Sasha Grey, Shannan Click, Tori Praver, Trish Goff, Vanessa Hudgens, Zoe Saldana
I don't want to hear one single argument here. NONE. Brazil simply produces lingerie and bikini models like they are coming off a conveyor belt. In the 10-plus years I have been doing this hardly a week goes by in which I don't come across a new Brazilian bikini or lingerie model that I have never heard of before. I mean that literally. I don't know what they are doing down there, but someone is doing some seriously awesome things with DNA ever since Maria Joao generated the most cancellations in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue history with her cover back in 1978 (you may have also heard of her daughter, a young lady named Jordana Brewster).
WOMEN OF NOTE: Adriana Bombom, Adriana Lima (above), Alessandra Ambrosio, Alice Braga, Aline Moraes, Aline Nakashima, Amanda Rosa, Ana Beatriz Barros, Ana Carolina Dias, Ana Claudia Michels, Ana Hickmann, Ana Paula Araujo, Analu Campos, Ashley Sky, Bia Feres, Branca Feres, Brenda Costa, Camila Alves, Camila Morais, Camila Pitanga, Caroline Francischini, Caroline Trentini, Cintia Dicker, Cinthia Moura, Cleo Pires, Daniela Cicarelli, Daniela Freitas, Daniella Sarahyba, Debora Nascimento, Deborah Secco, Elisandra Tomacheski (above), Ellen Rocche, Emanuela de Paula, Fabiana Mayer, Fabiana Semprebom, Fabiana Tambosi, Fernanda Lima, Fernanda Machado, Fernanda Motta, Flavia de Oliveira, Flavia Lucini, Gisele Bundchen, Gracie Carvalho, Grazielli Massafera, Ildi Silva, Isabela Soncini, Isabeli Fontana, Isis Valverde, Izabel Goulart, Jeisa Chiminazzo, Juliana Didone, Juliana Martins, Katarina Scola, Leticia Birkheuer, Lisalla Montenegro (above), Luciana Bertolini, Luciana Vendramini, Luisa Mell, Luiza Brunet, Luli Miller, Mariana Weickert, Michelle Alves, Milena Toscano, Miryan Martin, Morena Baccarin, Natalia Guimaraes, Nicole Bahls, Paola Oliveira, Raica Oliveira (above), Raquel Zimmermann, Rayanne Morais, Renata Kuerten, Simone Villas Boas, Tais Araujo
