The close of 2013 finds pretty much every men’s publication offering up their Hottest Women of 2013 lists. And while all those other articles are nice, they’re totally wrong.

Below you’ll find SlamXHype’s Favorite Women of 2013: the 25 models, musicians, and all-around beauties who made this year special.

Kate Moss

OG model Kate Moss made Playboy’s 60th issue special thanks to her full nude spread. She may be 39, but she still nows how to rock a camera. See the rest of the photos here.

Emily Ratajkowski

2013 belonged to “Blurred Lines” model Emily Ratajkowski. The stunning UK-er’s spread for Rag and Bone may not have been her most clothe-less effort of the year, but ladies jeans have never looked better.

Lady Gaga

Women of 2013

The ballsy Lady Gaga is never afraid to get racy, and her Inez Vinoodh-shot feature in V Magazine was a highlight of the year.

Candice Swanepoel

All KAWS and James Jebbia needed when they shot Candice Swanepoel i-D Magazine was a clean, white background, and a pair of KAWS gloves. Swanepoel did the rest.

Stella Maxwell

Bless the UK for giving us model Stella Maxwell. She makes even the oldest car interiors look mind-blowingly attractive.

Olivia Munn

Women of 2013

The spread that Olivia Munn shot with Esquire for their June/July issue was painfully awesome.


Terry Richardson knows how to get the best out of Rihanna; his shots of her for Rolling Stone were awe-inspiring.

Brooke Candy

Another one of Terry Richardson’s favorites, Brooke Candy may not have supermodel looks, but you can feel her intensity in every one of the photos.

Charlotte Carey

Charlotte Carey made sheer fabrics her bitch.


Queen Bey did it better than anyone else Terry Richardson shot in 2013. Her GQ spread made grown men cry.

Cara Delevingne

British model Cara Delevingne had a break out 2013, her spread in Interview Magazine shows exactly why.

Giselle Bündchen

How many years has Giselle been on everyone’s Hottest Women list? It’s defies science.

Anne V

Russian-American model Anne V owns the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.

Paulina Gretzky

Wayne Gretzky’s daughter owns Instagram. If you don’t follow her, correct your mistake.

Kim Kardashian

Women of 2013

Kanye‘s soon-to-be better half rocked her L’Officiel Homme spread. Oh, Kanye was there too.

Olivia Wilde

Curse you Jason Sudeikis for winning over Olivia Wilde heart.

Tereza Kacerova

Miss Kacerova was the best part of Terry Richardson X Diesel’s 2014 “Playboy” calendar.

Ashley Sky

Ashley Sky owns popsicles.

Vanessa Hudgens

She was the best part of Spring Breakers.

Sarah McSweeney

Sarah McSweeney owns octopuses.

Kate Upton

Miss Upton owns body paint.

Lea Michelle

Lea Michele may be the star of one of the most obnoxious shows on television — Glee — but the intense coverart she shot for her was dark, brooding, and unreal.

Emma-Mackenzie Jardine


The picture may be from 2012, but Miss Jardine‘s ability to make shirts irrelevant is timeless.

Adrianne Ho

Adrianne Ho owns streetwear.

Miley Cyrus

Miley, oh, Miley, what a tweaking, tongue-out year it’s been.
