The GRAMMY Nominations Concert Live!! - Show

There’s been quite the hoopla about Adam Levine being chosen as People‘s Sexiest Man Alive, from hilarious responses on twitter to our own nominations for the Sexiest Men, both alive and dead/fictional.

But we’re running up against what I’d called Levine-fatigue, which is to say that we’re not huge fans of his to begin with. We are big fans of beautiful people, but we wanted to get as far away from Adam Levine as possible. We decided to jump on the sexiest people train and make our own list of sexy women who we love.

And so here are 15 of the sexiest women alive that we’re crushin’ on right now, in no particular order whatsoever.

Robyn Lawley

Robyn Lawley swimwear line for Madison Plus Select

We’re pretty big fans of Robyn Lawley over here, even though we truly can’t believe she’s considered a “plus size” model. In additon to be smoking hot, she’s articulate about body issues and has attached her name to an amazing plus size line of swimsuits.

Kerry Washington

At least People got one thing right when they named Kerry Washington the Best Dressed Woman In The World, because the woman is flawless.

Lizzy Caplan

Joanna nominated Lizzy Caplan, and let me tell you. Lizzy Caplan is my type of woman. I’m loving her turn on  Masters of Sex as the warm, open minded sexual adventurer. Also, Party Down forever and ever.

Felicity Hayward

I’ve basically been in love with Felicity Hayward since the moment I first read about her amazing confidence and body positivity. I try to think of her as my spirit animal when I’m having weak moments.

Brenda Song

2013 Summer TCA Tour - Day 9

She’s always hilarious as a sidekick or girlfriend (Scandal, The Social Network, New Girl), and I’m really hoping she starts getting some more substantial roles so we can see more of her.

Daniela Sea

daniela seaSam reminded me about stunningly gorgeous Daniela Sea, who we all fell in love with on The L Word. I mean, those eyes.

Winona Ryder

This is a year’s long love, but she’ll always be my favorite in Girl, Interrupted, or as my beloved Jo March in Little Women.

Aubrey Plaza

Sexy witch. Dream girl.

Lupita Nyong’o

17th Annual Hollywood Film Awards - Arrivals

Ever since she started showing up in our Red Carpet round ups, I’ve become completely enamoured of Lupita Nyong’o, who’s not only stunning, but has some of the best style I’ve seen on the red carpets in ages.

The Entire Cast of Orange Is The New Black


I loved OITNB for a lot of reasons, but the highlight was that I’ve never seen a TV show with so many women. Off camera, the whole crew is beyond likable, well-spoken, and post tons of photos of them hanging out IRL. Can we all be friends?

Padma Lakshmi

Super into food, had a guest role of 30 Rock. Wanna date? (A fantastic contribution by Meg).

Zoe Saldana

Hayley nominated Zoe Saldana, and I couldn’t agree more. Truly, I have loved her ever since Center Stage, and the love has only grown.

Patti Smith

Cate Blanchett

Dalai Lama Holds Public Talk

She’s a regular feature on our best dressed lists, and remember how she played one very sexy Bob Dylan in No Direction Home? Here she is with the Dalai Lama, who has all the luck.

Grace Coddington
Carolina Herrera - Front Row - Fall 2011 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week

I’ve always felt very strongly that Grace Coddington and I would get along really well, if we were ever to date.

I’m sure we left a ton of hot women out because the world is FULL of them. Who makes your Sexiest Women Alive list?
