Victoria’s Secret model Candice Swanepoel was named No. 1 on Maxim magazine’s annual Hot 100 List on Wednesday (May 21, 2014). It is the first time the South African native has snagged the top spot, so she was very excited. “It’s a huge honor to be Maxim’s No. 1, among so many beautiful and talented women!” Candice Swanepoel said. “It’s a great feeling.” The blonde beauty was followed by other gorgeous Hollywood stars that made the top 10, including Scarlett Johansson, Katy Perry, Irina Shayk, Jennifer Lawrence, Zooey Deschanel, Alessandra Ambrosio, Jessica Alba, Mila Kunis and Cara Delevingne. Miss Swanepoel’s honor came after Miley Cyrus was voted No. 1 in 2013. This year, the 21-year-old “Wrecking Ball” hitmaker plummeted to number 25 on the list of the magazine.
