These days, being hot isn’t just about winning the DNA lottery and hiring a good stylist. The hottest women in the world have conquered social media and dominate newsfeeds. They make or break trends. And with millions of fans following everything they do, these women are as savvy as they are sexy, their careers expanding into new territory all the time.

The faces to break a thousand hearts deserve our applause and more, especially considering that these women are actresses, singers, models, and bona fide businesspeople. Let it be known that our annual round-up of the hottest women in the world aren’t just pretty faces (though we’re hardly complaining). 

Without further ado, let’s get into the 30 hottest women in the world right now.

The Hottest Women in 2022

1. Rihanna

The queen of Bajan pop and IDGAF Instagram comments has spawned 14 number ones on the Billboard Hot 100, eight albums in almost as many years, and collected over 141 international music awards. But she didn’t stop there. The majority of her $1.7 billion net worth comes from her multiple businesses – Fenty Beauty, Fenty Skin, and Savage x Fenty, her fire lingerie brand. You can’t blame people for dancing, or for fawning over her to the point of obsession, as Rhianna remains one of the hottest women in the business (okay, businesses), year after year.

2. Selena Gomez

She started as a cherubic-faced Disney star and quickly eclipsed the star-power even Disney holds (which is a lot). Gomez is now the seventh most followed person on Instagram with a whopping 270 million followers, which is more than even Ms. Social Media herself, Kim K. She’s a singer, an actress, and a business owner with her new beauty brand, Rare Beauty. Which accurately describes Selena, as she is clearly one of the hottest (and most successful) women of all time.

3. Adriana Lima

Victoria’s worst-kept secret has to be Adriana Lima. The Brazilian demigod made what could be one of the tackiest runway shows on earth, a must-see cultural phenomenon, leading a pantheon of beautiful women to follow suit. The 40-year-old is also a mother of two while still achieving the title of Victoria’s Secret’s most valuable model in 2017. Probably why she keeps going back.

4. Kate Upton

Supermodel Kate Upton is curvaceous and bodacious, and her four Sports Illustrated Swimsuit covers have certainly celebrated that fact. She also graced the cover of the 100th-anniversary Vanity Fair cover, and she’s appeared on the covers of Italian, American and British Vogue. Basically, she’s an international sensation, and it’s not hard to see why. Upton is a supermodel of the top degree, and that’s why she’ll always earn her spot on the hottest woman list. 

5. Scarlett Johannson

Scar-Jo recently made her debut as the Black Widow, and she’s a real-life superhero too. She’s public about her support for multiple charities that fight poverty and promote cancer research. Her films have grossed her over $14.3 billion worldwide, making her the ninth highest-grossing star of all time. And we get it – if Scarlett Johansson is in it, we’ll be there. Her recent marriage to funny-man Colin Jost had us all mourning, as if we had a chance, anyway. One of the richest women is also one of the hottest, and that’s proof that the universe does indeed play favorites.

6. Bella Hadid

While the elder Hadid goes for the all-American girl-next-door, Bella is happier to play the black sheep in a series of the hottest topless shoots, risqué outfits, and a barely-there Victoria’s Secret appearance. There’s science to back this pick, too. According to a renowned cosmetic surgeon, Bella has the most symmetrical face in the world, making her the most beautiful woman alive. Her high profile ex, The Weeknd, helped Bella’s star rise even more when we were all left wondering which songs on his recent album were about her. The lucky guy has dated another woman on this list (Selena Gomez), and that’s why we’re not giving up on our rap career just yet.

7. Gigi Hadid

Turns out good things do come in pairs. From a Real Housewives afterthought to the princess regent of supermodels, Gigi Hadid is not only among the hottest women in the world, but has navigated her career better than Lewis Hamilton at the Monaco Grand Prix. It all started with a Desigual show in 2014. From there, the LA native racked up gigs with Carine Roitfeld, Vogue (several issues), Versace, and Chanel, paving the way to the throne with a series of front covers and closing runway appearances. Factor in the model’s must-have famous baby daddy – in this case, Zayn Malik – and Gigi is set for a place on the sexiest woman list for years to come.

8. Beyonce

Beyonce is the queen bee, and everybody knows it, which is why no “hottest woman” list would be complete without her. Her star knows no limits, made evident by the fact that she almost never does press and still manages to sell her albums like hot cakes. She’s won an astounding 28 Grammy Awards, the female artist with the most Grammy wins ever. Her accomplishments aren’t limited to her music career, as she’s also wife to Jay-Z (ever heard of him?) and mother of three. She’s the GOAT, and undeniably one of the most attractive women of all time.

9. Emily Ratajkowski

There’s only one Emily Ratajkowski, and you still can’t pronounce her name properly. The beautiful woman that made ‘Blurred Lines’ a cultural phenomenon (though only Robin Thicke can be blamed for the backlash) has gone from strength-to-strength in Hollywood. She’s not simply content with steaming up your Instagram feed, either. The London-born model is making a play for the big screen too, appearing as an actress in Gone Girl and We Are Your Friends in all her wonderful, technicolor glory.

10. Charlize Theron

Beauty doesn’t have an age limit, and 46-year-old Charlize Theron proves it. She’s one of the world’s highest paid actresses, recipient of multiple awards, including an Academy Award and Golden Globe, and she’s drop-dead gorgeous to boot. Her performance in Monster won her the coveted Best Actress Award, though her breakout role was in the horror flick, The Devil’s Advocate. Theron has been gracing our screens for over 20 years, and we hope she never stops.


Who is the most beautiful woman in the world?

We just gave you a list of 10 of them, but if you’re still not satisfied, lean into the science. Bella Hadid’s unnaturally symmetrical face was deemed to be 94.35% accurate to the Golden Ratio of beauty. If a world-famous supermodel is only scoring 95%, we’re hoping no one ever runs the Golden Ratio on us. 

Which country has the most beautiful women in the world?

Beauty lies in the eye of the beholder and all that, but some people have said the most beautiful women in the world come from Brazil, Turkey, France, Italy, Venezuela, and all the other countries. We don’t discriminate.
