Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the most desirable of them all?
AskMen.com has unveiled its Top 99 Most Desirable Women of the Year list, celebrating beautiful and successful females who have recently made remarkable contributions to the worlds of film, business, sports, comedy, fashion, music, and philanthropy.
And there’s a new reigning queen for 2014: “Game of Thrones” actress Emilia Clarke. So how did she steal the top spot away from Academy Award-winner Jennifer Lawrence, who received the honor in 2013 but dropped to No. 4 on this year’s list?
Clarke, 26, has clearly captured the hearts of viewers with her ethereal beauty and outstanding performance as Daenerys Targaryen. The “Mother of Dragons” has evolved from a shrinking violet into a fierce leader, a champion of the weak and a warrior, and the strength of her character is inspiring. The actress is also a charmer who knows how to work her assets, not least of which are her, um, eyebrows? Two other “Game of Thrones” actresses, Oona Chaplin and Rose Leslie, also made the list this year. The promos for the fourth season have been giving us chills, so we understand why folks have these beguiling ladies on the brain.
The list includes a bevy of rising young TV stars as well, with notables including Alison Brie, the three “GoT” actresses, Sarah Hyland from “Modern Family,” Shailene Woodley from “The Secret Life of the American Teenager,” and “Parks and Recreation’s” Aubrey Plaza all making the cut.
The list changes every year, indexing which celebrities have had the most impact. And this year is no different, with lots of new ladies, including three — Brie, Emily Ratajkowski, and Margot Robbie — who make their debut in the coveted top 10.
