No Beyoncé? No Rihanna? Not A Single Black Woman Made Top 10 in Maxim's Hot 100 List [Photos]


Well, this certainly is strange. 

Maxim’s annual Hot 100 list  was released and the top 10 featured very beautiful women — but they were all white, basically.

The top 10 consists of: Candice Swanepoel, Scarlett Johansson, Katy Perry, Zooey Deschanel, Jennifer Lawrence, Irina Shayk, Mila Kunis, Cara Delevingne, Jessica Alba and Aleessandra Ambrosio.

Before you start, Jessica Alba and Aleessandra Ambrosio made the top 10 — but let’s be clear, heritage aside — they’re very visibly white. They even featured Jessica as a blonde in the mag.

Rihanna narrowly made the list, coming in at 11. Beyoncé ranked number 21. Where’s Lupita Nyong’o?

Come on, Maxim. A little more diversity wouldn’t hurt. See the full list here.
