Complex’s 100 Hottest Women Right Now

Posted by: | Filed in: Polls | No Comments

47. Ashley Benson

Occupation: Model, actress
Biggest accomplishment this year: Successfully transitioning into feature film world via Spring Breakers

COMPLEX.COM – Benson has risen to prominence this past year with her work on the ABC Family show Pretty Little Liars as well as her turn as the gun-toting Brit in Spring Breakers. She also had a one episode cameo on How I Met Your Mother, appearing as (yet another) Ted Mosby love interest. The 23-year-old also dipped her toe into the modeling pool, signing on in January to be the face of evening wear designer Faviana. Sadly, she recently confirmed her split from Ryan Good, the alleged “swagger coach” for Justin Bieber. No word on whether the cause of the breakup had anything to do with Good’s mostly-fictional profession.

Ashley Voted #80 On 2012 AfterEllen Hot 100 List

Posted by: | Filed in: Polls | No Comments

80. Ashley Benson

In a show full of murders and mayhem, Hanna Marin always makes us laugh.

Prepare yourselves for the 100 hottest women on Earth!

This year in our sixth annual Hot 100 reader poll, over 170,000 votes were cast by our readers for over 1,700 different women. We tallied the votes and ranked the top 100 vote-getters.

What’s so interesting every year is how perceived hotness fluctuates. TV actresses always make a strong showing, so much that they even stick around when their show goes off the air. But where The L Word and Skins actresses used to reign, now Glee, Lip Service, Lost Girl and even the women of web series cut in to give them some stiff competition.

The movie star types and out lesbian/bisexual women we love are fairly consistent. It’s hard to imagine a year when some of them wouldn’t make the list, especially those that have taken the top honor in a previous year. About one quarter of the this year’s list are out women and, interestingly, all of the musicians who made the list are part of that stat. Most of the actors, however, have played a lesbian or bisexual role at some point in their career, with a few notable exceptions. (You guys don’t discriminate! And there’s always hope.)

Overall, the commonality seems to be women with an edge. There are no cookie-cutter types on our list. Sure, some might have girl-next-door looks, but they aren’t interested in taking the easy way, whatever their paths might be. Whether it’s just living life as an out celebrity or taking roles that challenge the status quo, AfterEllen.com readers celebrate women who are more than just aesthetically pleasing. We hope even if your top pick didn’t make it this year, you can at least be proud to be part of something that is more substantive than Maxim’s Hot 100, which is why this whole thing began in the first place. We wanted something more; you wanted something more. And here is 2012’s Hot 100, according to you.
