6 Reasons To Like AskMen's "Most Desirable Women"

AskMen's list of the Top 99 Most Desirable Women of 2010 includes a lot of the usual suspects (Megan Foxzzzz), and the very concept of ranking desirable women is annoying at best. Still, we like some of AskMen's choices.

Unsurprisingly — it is AskMen — these women almost uniformly live up to a Hollywood beauty ideal, even if they don't actually work in Hollywood. While some might be "curvy" by modeling standards, there's nary a plus-size woman in sight. And while the list does include some women of color — Rihanna and Aishwarya Rai are examples — it could still be more diverse in every way (like: are there any desirable women over 45?). Of course, the whole project of identifying the "most desirable" women is pretty suspect — even though Ask Men claims to have, um, asked men, a poll like this is still likely to get the most socially acceptable answers. Oh, and it repeatedly plugs the movie Valentine's Dayonce with a notoriously photoshopped image of Jessica Alba. However, rather than dismiss the list out of hand, I decided to go through it, and I found a few things to like.

Anna Paquin (no. 79) has consistently made interesting acting choices, and was the second youngest Oscar winner ever. I also like her gap-toothed smile, and her name.

Tricia Helfer (no. 70) and Grace Park (no 46): I would've liked to see Katee Sackhoff, but I'll take what I can get.

Coco Rocha (no. 59) is not just a model, but a fun blogger as well. Also, I loved her red period.

In other redhead news, it is not possible for Christina Hendricks (no. 58) to not look gorgeous. Even when the Times tries.

We were singing the praises of model Lakshmi Menon (no. 45) back in 2008. Nice that AskMen caught on.

It's not like we need AskMen to tell us that funny women — and funny women over 35, for that matter — can be "desirable." Still, Kristen Wiig (no. 86) is a Win.
