After eliminating dozens of our entries in the 100 Hottest Women of 2014, this is the summit. 90 gorgeous gals were eliminated, and thousands of other beauties just didn't quite have enough to make the cut. These top 10 ladies are the ones who will be household names - if they aren't already - by the end of the year. They will be the ones we expect will be at the top of their related areas of expertise. We know what you've come here to see, so let's take the seat belts off and redline our engines as we present to you the 10 Hottest Women of 2014.
Holly Jade Peers
You knew there was bound to be an English glamour girl in here somewhere, didn't you? Holly Jade Peers has been frequently gracing the covers of the likes of FHM, Nuts, and Loaded. Now if only we could get her in our covers...
Gemma Lee Farrell
Gemma Lee Farrell was recently aPlayboy Playmate of the Month and is most likely going to be in the top running for the renowned Playmate of the Year award. This New Zealand native has recently moved to LA in order to pursue a modeling career, showing that she is fairly new to the game. We expect to see Gemma breaking the top 10 again next year with the Playmate of the Year title under her belt. But with a backside like that, belts aren't really necessary.
A lot of you might recognize Emily Ratajkowski as the insanely hot, topless dancer from Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" video. Emily is half Israeli, half Polish and was born and raised in England. Yet again, the Brits have provided us with more wood to keep the fire going.. if you catch our drift.
We're sorry Gemma, but we found a top contender for you to duke it out with for the Playmate of the Year award! Audrey Allen was a Playmate of the Month last year as well. She is from the small, cold town of Edina, Minnesota, which was where 'Fargo' was filmed. And even if Audrey has that 'Fargo'/"Minnesota Nice" type of accent, that could make her even hotter.
Jumping a whopping 53 spots on our 100 Hottest Women list since last year, our only regret is that we didn't get to watch Katy Perry's Prismatic funbags bounce during the jump itself. Speaking of Prism, that is the name of Katy's album which dropped this past October at the top spot on the Billboard chart. On the topic of top spots, people worldwide will be able to see Katy shake her top two assets as her Primatic World Tour is planning to hit multiple countries in every major continent thru Fall 2015. She's also doing the voice of Smurfette in the upcoming third 'Smurfs' film! You know what they say, Gargamel-ts in your mouth, not in your hands!
Previously ranked No. 30 on the 100 Hottest People of 2013, Kate Upton is starting to become even more popular throughout the modelling industry. She has been in so many issues of Sports Illustrated, that second string football players are starting to get jealous. But it's alright fellas, massive mammories like that are only kept in the swimsuit edition.
Ranked No. 3 on last year's list, Leanna Decker is one of the most beautiful women in the world. Leanna was recognized as Playboy's Cyber Girl of the Year for 2012, and she almost could have been the Hottest Girl of the Year at GuySpeed for 2014. Leanna Decker was brought up in the southern region of the US. And just looking at her brings up something in our southern region as well.
Sara Jean Underwood
A Playmate of the Month back in July of 2006 and Playmate of the Year for 2007, Sara Jean Underwood is no stranger to success attributed to her beauty. While being such an accomplished Playmate with a ton of Playboy shoots under her belt is great. We'll always remember her for cohosting 'Attack of the Show' while it was on its last legs. Just thinking about her naked yoga video collection inspires wood under our jeans for Sara Jean Underwood. Namaste!
You knew Jennifer Lawrence was bound to be here somewhere due to her cinematic success, didn't you? While we were sad to see that Rebecca Romijn never went back to portray Mystique in 'X-Men: First Class', we're glad that Jennifer Lawrence did it in her place, mainly just to see her wearing nothing but blue bodypaint with a couple of pasties. Despite how much 'The Hunger Games' ripped off of 'Battle Royale', we're glad to see this Kentucky country girl grow into such a tremendous success. Watching 'American Hustle', we're pretty sure that Lawrence's success isn't just tied into the success of 'The Hunger Games' books, she is the real deal.
Nicki Minaj has been outperforming and exceeding all of her predecessors and potential rivals for years. On a consistent level, Nicki has sold more records than the likes of all the great female rappers that were around before her, including Lil Kim, Eve, Trina, Foxy Brown, Erykah Badu and MC Lyte. Factor in the prevalence of music piracy in this era and her sales numbers are even more impressive. If Lauryn Hill wasn't enslaved to the prison system and if Missy Elliot didn't get Grave's disease (which are two huge, unfortunate setbacks to the entirety of music), hip hop would be completely different and those two women would be right at Nicki's side as a trifecta of queens reigning over hip hop. Instead, Nicki has learned how to adapt from these women and they all inspire her to continue and stand on her own in the previously male-dominated world of hip hop.
Without any other contemporaries in her zone anymore, her music is starting to evolve on its own. In her songs, she takes her sexuality and makes it her own. Instead of subjugating herself to the pleasures of other men, she turns it around (and we're willing to subjugate ourselves to Nicki anytime). With such a tremendous following and having only two major studio albums in her repertoire, we can't wait to see how much the scene will change yet again once her third album, The Other Woman, releases later this year. But until then, we can still listen to her classic albums and keep checking her Instagram for the tremendously hot photos she keeps posting for us to see. Nicki Minaj has beaten all the girls on this list and the thousands of others who didn't make the cut. Whether its with pasties and handcuffs on or with her music, Nicki will keep us memorized during the year of the Minaj-a-trois.
