Three Kiwis Named Among World’s Most Sexy Women

Three Kiwis Named Among World’s Most Sexy Women

Three New Zealand women are listed among FHM magazine’s annual 100 Sexiest Women in the World list, announced today.

They are Rachel Hunter, Kylie Bax and Hamilton local and FHM International Bikini Heaven representative Ginnie Costin. Hunter is ranked at 62, Bax at 70 and Costin at 89.

``New Zealand women are internationally recognised as being not only sexy and beautiful, but confident and with a great sense of humour. New Zealand blokes are finally cottoning onto the fact that they’re a lucky bunch of lads,’’ FHM editor John Bastick today.

Actress Halle Berry has taken the poll position of international Bo.1 in the world, after a total of five million votes from FHM readers worldwide were downloaded during the voting period. Her win marks the first time in the history of the survey that an African-American woman has taken the top position.

“Sexy to me is what sexy does - that is sexy to me. When someone walks and acts and speaks with confidence, I find that to be really really sexy. And it’s not so much an external thing its sort of something that is very internal, that one exudes and it starts with being very confident and sure of who you are”, Berry said from Los Angeles this week.

Far from predictable in 2003, a few surprise entries into the list were humorous to say the least. The ubiquitous Australian suburban comedian duo Kath & Kim screamed into #95 poll position (beating the likes of Kim Katrall from Sex in the City).

Voting for the 100 Sexiest Women in the World survey was conducted for a period of 3 months, votes were registered via the website or SMS text messaging.

The No.1 poll position winner was taken from an international vote worldwide, with #2 - #100 determined by New Zealand and Australian votes.
