The Top 99 is an annual list compiled by the readers and staff, ranking the famous females deemed to be the year's most alluring. In casting their votes, readers are asked to look beyond sex appeal and beauty to pick women who have the characteristics they value in a potential companion, like intelligence, humor, charisma, and ambition.
Since the first edition launched in 2001, more than 40 million readers have checked out AskMen.com's Top 99 Most Desirable Women lists - as have countless international media outlets. 2006's list drew a million readers on its launch day alone, and a total of 15 million over the course of the year.
The voting process for this year's edition of the Most Desirable Women list began in the fall of 2006, when a list of approximately 200 candidates was assembled. AskMen.com readers were then invited to vote for their favorite nominees, and they responded on a massive scale: More than 8.5 million votes were cast over a six week period.
From the reveal of the inaugural winner onward to that of this year's reigning queen, AskMen.com's Top 99 Most Desirable Women lists have acted as the definitive gauge for identifying what modern men desire most in their female companions.
