Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is officially the hottest lady in the land, well, in the Maxim land at least.

The Victoria’s Secret model-turned-actress has snagged the coveted top spot on Maxim magazine’s annual “Hot 100″ list for 2011 and she decided to celebrate by taking off her top (well, sorta) for the June magazine’s special supplement. The British model beat out Katy Perry, Kim Kardashian and even new Duchess Kate Middleton to be crowned the hottest woman of the year. Is Rosie really the hottest woman of the year?

The 24-year-old beauty (who is currently dating Jason Statham) first made headlines when she replaced Megan Fox in Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon after Fox quit the project.

As for winning the hot title, Rosie said that it is “a huge honor” and that she thinks you “can have some fun” with the title. Cheeky!

Not yet convinced that Rosie deserves the title of hottest lady? Watch this video that she made for sexy lingerie company Agent Provocateur before you make up your mind.

Other ladies who topped the list included Cameron Diaz, Olivia Munn, Mila Kunis and model Bar Refaeli.

The Maxim Hot 100 will appear as a special supplement inside the magazine’s June issue. Get the digital copy of the magazine on iTunes and pick up the real deal when it hits newsstands on Tuesday, May 10!
