Karolina Kurkova beat out the hottest actresses, models, and singers in the world for the title of "World's Sexiest Woman."

E! Entertainment Television bestowed the lofty honor on the leggy Czech lingerie model, noting the globalization of sexiness represented by its World's Sexiest Top 10 List.

"Far from being a U.S.-centric list, you'll find a face, and body, from six continents," E! said in a strange statement.

The "World's Second Sexiest Woman" went to Israeli model, and current Leonardo DiCaprio main squeeze, Bar Rafaeli. Former Leonardo DiCaprio main squeeze Gisele Bundchen came in fourth.

One can only hope that, should Kurkova be unable to fulfill her duties as "World's Sexiest," Rafaeli will be able to sufficiently amp up her sexiness, and take over Kurkova's sexy responsibilities.

That would be the sexy thing to do.
