Los Angeles: Actress-model Kate Upton has been crowned the Sexiest Woman alive award by People magazine at a function here.
The 22-year-old model, who featured on the cover of 'Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue', received the award from 'Grey's Anatomy' star Eric Dane at the Beverly Hilton hotel, reported People Magazine.
"This is such an honour to me because sexy to me means someone who's confident and happy," said Upton. Dane while presenting the honour to her mentioned the reason why Upton has won this award.
"There are a lot of reasons why Kate is sexy. Style, career, achievements, sense of humor, personality, oh and did I mention her... Looks?" Dane said.
She acted in a movie alongside Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann in 'The Other Woman' this year.
