Hotness is what you want it to be… it can never be a static definition.

The Hot 100 | The most beautiful, bold, and brilliant women in the world.
For this year’s Hot 100, we looked for beautiful and bold women who use their platforms—whether Instagram or celebrity megaphone—to define and express themselves. They are actresses, athletes, musicians, and models, yes, but also brand builders, entrepreneurs, and voices of a generation.

World’s Sexiest Women
Call us prophetic or call us imaginative innovators, there’s something about this List that brings out the best in democracy. Maxim’s Hot 100, the definitive list of the world’s most beautiful women, has once again shown us the power of women and how they’re redefining what “sexy” really means. We’re just applauding.

Fashionista Behind The Camera | Tina Sokolovskaya

Starting with night clubs and ending up with Playboy Ukraine’s magazine, this isn’t just luck, but it is when hard work pays off and Tina Sokolovskaya surely has her way with it. This Ukraine based photographer now works with celebrities, famous artists, and singers all over the globe.

“By the way, my famous pic “On the Wave” was made in Dubai. This was an “accidental” shot. It was a usual commercial shooting for our client from Latvia, we were on the beach, and thought to shoot some interesting. Nearby there was a bridge, and I said: “Let me try to take a picture of you from above!” The sea was just a little restless, there was a wave, and this shot turned out. In fact, all the best is the result of the right moment.”

Canicule | Heat Wave

“Canicule” series (“Heat Wave” in english) performed during a hot day in late summer. We wanted to push the extreme sensuality, chills, skin texture, contrasts … We shot on bed, in natural light, and everything was as smooth an ice cube on wet skin.

“Be yourself, be another, that we would like to be or that we are in silence …Through an encounter combining both universes, photography for me is the expression of a desire, a fantasy or reality. The opportunity to dare to break down barriers, to tremble a moment, diving into a dream. The opportunity to plural meetings and timeless creations”
Cindy Kirovograd

“I’m Lys, French female photographer, passionate of eroticism and fascinated by the curves, by the light that sculpts the hollow, and sublime them… I photograph on instinct, I research the animal side that hides in all of us. But I do not like to tell my life, and prefer to let my work speak for me”

Meet Zoë Kravitz: Allure’s June 2017 Cover Star

Zoë Kravitz photographed by Patrick Demarchelier
“People always assume I’m much more hippie-dippy than I am.”

Beyond the famous pedigree, the formidable Ms. Kravitz is poised for single-name stardom.

…It would be journalistic negligence to do an interview with Zoë Kravitz without bringing up her style, which is so admired and emulated. We start with the hair: “The platinum’s fun. It’s work. But it’s something I’ve always wanted to do. I’ll stick with it as long as I can.” She laughs at the thought that her aesthetic may not outlast her patience or lack thereof. Her fashion sense seems less of a problem in that department and is firmly rooted in common sense, for all its bohemian overtones. “I’ve always liked contrasts, contradiction,” she says of her fashion tastes. “I think too much of anything doesn’t work — like if everything you wear is expensive-looking, you look stale. And if everything you wear is ripped and falling apart, you look crazy.” (Every fashion blogger in the world, please, oh please, take note.) “I like when you can find a balance. I live in New York City. I walk around. I have to be comfortable. You don’t look cool or sexy if you’re uncomfortable; it’s not attractive.”
