NEW YORK, May 23 (UPI) -- Victoria's Secret
model Candice Swanepoel claimed the number 1 spot in Maxim

The 25-year-old South African beauty dethroned pop singer Miley Cyrus, who received the honor in 2013, and beat out several Hollywood A-listers for her place at the top of the list.
"It's a huge honor to be Maxim's No. 1, among so many beautiful and talented women!" Swanepoel said. "It's a great feeling."
Scarlett Jonahsson, Katy Perry, Irina Shayk and Jennifer Lawrence rounded up the first five places of the list. Cyrus also made the cut in the year's edition, but her position plummeted to the 25th place.
