hottest models in the world

Supermodels: we all know they are hot, but did you ever wonder which ones are the hottest? Well, if so you’re in luck, because the subjet of today’s list here at RefincedGuy.com is the 50 hottest models in the world.

How did we go about ranking them? Frankly, I don’t want to bore you with a bunch of technical talk about weighted variables and forecast models and other mathematical-sounding terms, but trust me, our methods were very scientific…which is so say, we went with our gut.

So sit back and prepare to be knocked off your feet by 50 of the most gorgeous women alive. If you disagree with the order, that’s fine. Everyone has their opinions. But I think this list will brighten your day regardless. So let’s get started.

Age: 27

Nationality: Netherlands

Where you’ve seen her: Vogue, Seventeen, Harpers, Elle, Marie Claire, Glamour, and even Time. Plus, of course, Victoria’s Secret. That’s a given.

8. Ana Beatriz Barros

8 ana beatriz barros

Age: 30

Nationality: Brazil

Where you’ve seen her: Guess, Dior, Armani, L’Oreal, Diesel, and Victoria’s Secret. That’s a pretty good resume I guess.

7. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

7 rosie huntington-whiteley

Age: 25

Nationality: England

Where you’ve seen her: Burberry, Victoria’s Secret, and a couple those Transformers movies. (She was Megan Fox’s replacement.)

6 laetitia casta

Age: 34

Nationality: France

Where you’ve seen her: Oh, just the covers of Rolling Stone, Cosmo, Vogue, Elle, and Glamour, plus runway shows for…well, for everybody. And that includes Victoria’s Secret. In fact, she was one of their Angels from 1998-2000.

5. Chanel Iman

5-chanel-iman

Age: 21

Nationality: USA

Where you’ve seen her: She’s been in other stuff, but you know her from her work with Victoria’s Secret.

4 alessandra ambrosio

Age: 31

Nationality: Brazil

Where you’ve seen her: Ralf Lauren, Dior, Revlon, Prada, Chanel, and, most famously, Victoria’s Secret. But you already knew that.

3. Bar Refaeli

3 bar refaeli

Age: 27

Nationality: Israel

Where you’ve seen her: Sports Illustrated, Maxim, GQ, and Elle. Maxim, in fact, has her at #1 on their Hot 100. Here she’s just a lousy #3.

Also, she’s the one to whom I was referring earlier when I said some famous Israeli weaseled out of her military service requirement. In fact, Esti Ginzburg called Bar Refaeli out on her avoidance…so I imagine when these two cross paths at runway shows there’s not a whole lot of eye contact.

2. Kate Upton

2 kate upton

Age: 20

Nationality: USA

Where you’ve seen her: The cover of the 2012 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue…and that animated GIF of her doing that sexy dance that’s all over the internet.

1. Heidi Klum

1 heidi klum

Age: 39

Nationality: Germany

Where you’ve seen her: Everywhere.

You know, I really wanted to keep this list contemporary. But at 39 years old, Heidi Klum is still ridiculously hot. So how could I not put her at #1?

Actually, just about everyone in the top 15 is worthy of the top spot. I might as well have flipped a coin.
