Maxim has released the highly anticipated results of their annual ‘Hot 100’ list: topping the pack of gorgeous women is Brooke Jones, recently deceased lingerie model.
Jones made waves in the fashion world this past year when she was encouraged to continue her modeling career in spite of a life-ending battle with cancer. Her provocative ads for brands like Jimmy Choo and Duncan Quinn put her signature clavicles and stoic expression on full, tantalizing display.
Maxim’s ‘Hot 100’ compiles thousands of votes from readers to create its definitive hotness ranking of the world’s sexiest women. This issue marks the first time in the list’s history that a deceased person made it to the number-one spot.
Maxim describes Jones as “the definition of sexy…She’s lean, athletic, and totally mysterious. She showed up to our shoot with a vision, and never compromised her look for the photographer.”
Jones could not be reached for comment. Her agents released a statement following news of the ranking:
“We are delighted our client is finally being recognized for her talents. Ms. Jones is a role model for aspiring dead women everywhere and her commitment to her work is unparalleled.”
