Melbourne: R and B queen Rihanna has been named the sexiest woman alive for 2011 by Esquire magazine.
The Barbadian singer was listed at the top leaving behind 15 other notable beauties, which included singer Beyonce, actresses Mila Kunis and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.
The 23-year-old singer is celebrated by the men’s magazine for her glistening bod, fearless sense of style, which the magazine says transcends even Madonna in her pursuit of “carnal pop”.
“At the end of a concert, I don’t feel like I’ve been this sexy thing. Really, I don’t even think about it,” the Herald Sun quoted the singer as telling in the November issue of the magazine.
