The "reveal" of "Victoria's Secret Supermodels celebration of the 2010 5th Annual 'What Is Sexy?' List: Bombshell Edition" answered the question, at Drai's at the W Hollywood, with lots of skin, lots of sexyface, and both bombs and shells.

I'm really glad that all these parties have undertaken lately to define "sexiness" for us. I mean, otherwise I might not know that, like Sophie Turner, it involved skintight tube-dresses.

Exhibit B: Miranda Kerr.


As Carrie Preston shows, the bandage is always apropos when "sexy" is the dress code.

As Camila Alves shows, you're allowed to do loose - but only if it's mini and there's a metallic involved!


Amber Stevens: while your dress is pretty, it's much too demure to qualify as "sexxxy." Please add a judicious slash or peephole somewhere.


Doutzen Kroes will demonstrate.

As for you, Michelle Trachtenberg, you could really use a little something...


Candice Swanepoel knows! When in doubt? a bustier!

But Rosie Huntington-Whitley will tell you that the best accessory is always a sexyface.


Just ask Paris.
