It is that time of year again, not just when a young man’s fancy turns to thoughts of love, but also when Maxim Magazine graces the screens and mailboxes of hot-blooded celebrity fans with its annual Hot 100 Sexiest Women edition. You read Maxim’s full feature online here: http://www.maxim.com/hot100/2014.
One of the enjoyable aspects of the Hot 100 list is that it gives “New 2 Tats” a chance to pay special attention to those beauties who have embraced to wonderful world of permanent body art.
The 2012 list came out a month before I first launched this blog. So, 2013 was the first chance to run a feature like this. In 2013, the “New 2 Tats” article was able to highlight 15 lovely ladies who had been featured on this blog for proudly showing how attractive and fitting tattoos can be.
As the 2014 list arrived, I was convinced that there would be more than 15 to feature this time. Alas, the number has dropped to 14. 5 of the women featured last year did not make Maxim’s list for 2014, and this year’s list ended up adding only 4 new names. So, to start, we will briefly remember the 2013 hotties who were not selected by Maxim for 2014:
Now, here is the summary of the “New 2 Tats” hotties who are on the 2014 Maxim Hot 100 list (their ranking from 2013 will be in parentheses):
- #78: Anna Paquin (Unranked)
- #70: Kacey Musgraves (Unranked)
- #61: Amber Heard (Unranked)
- #59: Arianny Celeste (#18)
- #42: Ronda Rousey (#29)
- #33: Ashley Tisdale (#7)
- #31: Lea Michelle (#39)
- #29: Zoe Saldana (#38)
- #28: Vanessa Hudgens (#9)
- #27: Emma Stone (#21)
- #26: Hayden Panettiere (unranked)
- #24: Charlize Theron (#31)
- #20: Kaley Cuoco (#32)
- #19: Selena Gomez (#2)
Now, for a refresher on how these ladies made wearing ink look so good:
#78: Anna Paquin: The former child star and “X-Men” film regular has been taking hot to nuclear levels throughout her run on “True Blood.”
#70: Kacey Musgraves: This rising country singer has been a bright star in 2014, with numerous Grammy Award victories.
#61: Amber Heard: This stunning beauty (and Johnny Depp’s main squeeze) has been a Maxim favorite for years, and is now on their Hot 100 list.
#59: Arianny Celeste: This UFC ‘Octagon Girl’ continues raise her profile in modeling.
#42: Ronda Rousey: UFC’s top a$$-kicker has had a monster year. She has already defended her UFC Women’s Bantamweight Championship twice in the past 5 months (including winning the main event match at UFC 170) and is slated to fight again in July.
#33: Ashley Tisdale: This former “High School Musical” hottie has continued to further her singing career in 2014.
# 29: Lea Michelle: The “Glee” queen bee, who is most responsible for showing it’s ok for ‘good girls’ to have lots of tattoos, launched her debut pop album in 2014.
#29: Zoe Saldana: Fast becoming a sci-fi fan favorite, Zoe has recently starred in the sequel film of the rebooted “Star Trek” franchise, is wrapping up work on Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” and is currently working on the sequel to the all-time box office champion “Avatar.”
#28: Vanessa Hudgens: The former star of “High School Musical”, BFF of Ashley Tisdale and butterfly-obsessed beauty has continued to work on her acting and singing careers in 2014.
#27: Emma Stone: The textbook definition of the ‘sexy tomboy’, Emma has been having a good time being Spiderman’s lady, both on-screen and off.
#26: Hayden Panettiere: The famous ‘indestructible cheerleader’ from “Heroes” has now become a country music vixen on the hit show “Nashville”. She is also excitedly looking forward to motherhood with her fiance’, boxing heavyweight champion, Wladimir Klitschko.
#24: Charlize Theron: This throwback to the screen goddesses of Hollywood’s golden era has had a productive 2014 and will soon be starring in a new “Mad Max” movie.
#20: Kaley Cuoco: The fan-boy’s dream from “Big Bang Theory” has recently celebrated getting married and has continued to make amusing “Priceline” commercials with William Shatner.
#19: Selena Gomez: A rough start to the year hasn’t stopped Selena from continuing to shine, courtesy of her debut solo album. Here’s hoping the rest of 2014 is a good one for her. She remains our #1 at “New 2 Tats.”
While it is a little disappointing that there aren’t as many stars to feature from this year’s Maxim Hot 100 list, I firmly believe that there are many who have been featured on “New 2 Tats” who are on the cusp of making this list. In addition, there are others who made the 2014 list who should be getting their own “New 2 Tats” feature soon (such as Demi Lovato).
