It's the 18th year of the coveted Maxim Hot 100 list, and this year's star-studded batch is topped by Kate Upton, who claimed the No. 1 spot.

The list, which recognizes the most beautiful and influential women in today's pop culture, is split into five categories: "The Bombshells," "The Divas," "The Screen Sirens," "The Funny Girls," and "The Power Players."

The bombshells include sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner and Gigi and Bella Hadid, as well as Adriana Lima among others. The divas, dedicated to performers, include Demi Lovato, Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna and Cardi B. Funny girls naturally placed Chrissy Teigen and Lilly Singh on the list. Scarlett Johansson, Margot Robbie and Gal Gadot lead the screen sirens, and some of the top power players were Kim Kardashian, Amal Clooney and Ivanka Trump.
