Smokin'! This year's Maxim's Hot 100 List is here and it is chock-full of sexy women.

Victoria's Secret stunner and one of the world's top-earning models Candice Swanepoel claimed the No. 1 spot on the list for the first time. "It's a huge honor to be Maxim's No. 1, among so many beautiful and talented women!" the blonde beauty said. "It's a great feeling."

The South African model's honor comes after Miley Cyrus was named the hottest by the magazine in 2013. This year, Cyrus, 21, plummeted to number 25 on the list.

Swanepoel topped this year's rankings over women in movies, TV music, and the catwalk. Scarlett Johansson came in at No. 2, while Katy Perry was placed third. Rounding out the top five was fellow model and Cristiano Ronaldo's love, Irina Shayk at No. 4, and America's girl crush Jennifer Lawrence at No. 5.

The No. 6 through 10 spots are occupied by the adorkable Zooey Deschanel, Alessandra Ambrosio, Jessica Alba, mom-to-be Mila Kunis, and Cara Delevingne, respectively.

Other notable names on the list of gorgeous girls include Rihanna (11), Kate Upton (12), Selena Gomez (19), Beyonce (21), and Kaley Cuoco (20).
