Model Kate Upton is leading the pack on the Maxim Hot 100 list.
Upton, who is gracing the July/August issue, told Maxim, “You know, I work really hard on myself: on feeling good, working out, being strong. Being number one on the Hot 100 is a little reward for all of the hard work."
Maxim COO said in a statement, “Our annual Hot 100 issue is about so much more than physical beauty, although this year's nominees have that in spades. Now more than ever, we need to celebrate smart, powerful women who are breaking boundaries, shattering glass ceilings and showing us what is possible — none more so than our incredibly talented cover star, Kate Upton."
Other big names to land the top spot in the past few years include Taylor Swift, Hailey Baldwin, and Stella Maxwell.
More of the 2018 honorees will announced soon. A Maxim Hot 100 party, which will be produced by Lagardère Sports & Entertainment and Rooftop2 Productions, will take place July 21 at the Hollywood Palladium.
