Top 20 Gorgeous Ladies 2011

So first: an apology. I haven't posted in so long because I've been having trouble getting my laptop repaired and also trouble accessing a computer.

ANYWAY, I'm back! And I have this year's 20 Gorgeous Ladies (my opinion, don't take offence to the list) to cheer you up.

20. Sasha Alexander. (New Entry).

You'll know her from the (surprisingly heterosexual) TV show, Rizzoli & Isles. You might even know her because she's Jessica Capshaw's best friend. Well, all I know is that she's stunning. Arguments?

19. Charlize Theron. (New entry).

Come on, everyone knows this little lady. Charlize is the star of Monster, Aeon Flux, Hancock... I could go on. She does all this and is hot while she's doing it. Plus, she kissed a woman for charity in 2009. Damn.

18. Kat Von D. (New Entry).

Okay, so Kat's not everyone's cup of tea - her tattoos are not something every lesbian is looking for. However, she's talented: she can draw, play piano, tattoo, and she genuinely has that odd moment where she looks classically pretty. Love her.

17. Heather Morris. (New Entry).

Ever since teen show Glee burst onto our screens in 2009, everyone has been wondering whether or not Brittany (Morris) and Santana (Naya Rivera) would get together. But before that, we just wanted to watch Heather and her sexy dancing, which is why she made the list.

16. Emma Watson. (New Entry).

There was a time when finding this girl attractive would have made you a paedophile. Well, not anymore! Not only is Watson a star of the Harry Potter movies, she's a model now too! So happy that some home-grown, British talent can also be this cute.

15. Rachel Weisz. (New Entry).

Whether or not you've watched her movies, I'm sure you've heard of her. Probably best known for The Mummy, Rachel is also known for Constantine, Eragon and The Lovely Bones. Why does she make the list? That classic beauty she beholds. Simple.

14. Kate Walsh. (New Entry).

The first Private Practice and Grey's Anatomy star on my list (but not the last). What can I say? Shonda Rhimes casts the hottest ladies! Kate is sexy, funny and I've never heard a bad word about her. Love her.

13. Sarah Shahi. (New Entry).

As if you don't already know why she's here just by the picture. HOT. Sarah is also talented. By lesbians, she's probably best known as the lovable Carmen on The L Word, but she's also starred as a regular in Life, Fairly Legal and has appeared in movies such as Old School. Talent on a sexy, sexy stick.

12. Caterina Scorsone. (New Entry).

The last addition to Shonda Rhimes' Grey's Anatomy spin-off, Private Practice, Caterina plays a sexy neurosurgeon with a drug addiction. And she's simply badass whilst she's doing it. I'm not sure if it's her character or Caterina herself that I adore but... No, it's definitely both of them.

11. Helena Bonham Carter. (New Entry).

Why have I chosen the above picture? Because it's proof that Helena can be quirkily sexy, even with a set of fake brown teeth and a Cruella de Ville wig. Husband of director Tim Burton, Helena stars as Bellatrix Lestrange in Harry Potter, and has also had starring roles in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Sweeney Todd.

10. Cheryl Cole. (Last Year: 8).

There's a chance you Americans might have heard of Cheryl now, unlike last year. She was scheduled to be a new judge on The US X Factor, but was controversially sacked before it aired. Over here in the UK, she's still considered the country's sweetheart and has already got 2 solo albums under her belt. Oh yeah, and she's absolutely stunning.

9. Angelina Jolie. (Last Year: 7).

You may know her from such films as Gia, Girl, Interrupted, Salt, Kung Fu Panda, Changeling, Gone in 60 Seconds... Hell, you'll have seen at least one of her films. You might just know her for marrying Brad Pitt or for having a ridiculous amount of children, but I know her for being extremely hot whilst doing this. She's Wonderwoman.

8. Naya Rivera. (New Entry).

Check out the above picture. There's your reason for her being on this list. Also, see my description of Heather Morris above. Why did she beat fellow Glee cast member, you ask? There's something about Latina ladies that I can't get over. Seriously. DAMN.

7. Lea Michele. (Last Year: 16).

This may be an unpopular opinion, but I've always been a fan of unconventional beauty. Glee is constantly making digs about her nose, how she's not as pretty as co-star Dianna Agron (who didn't make this list, by the way) but I seriously find her stunning. And her talent? Wow.

6. Eliza Dushku. (Last Year: 3.)

Oh My Dushku. Probably most famous for Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Bring It On and Dollhouse, Eliza is 100% hottie. Plus, from her twitter and her tumblr pages, we know she's got a great personality too. All this AND talent? One word: umf.

5. Lady Gaga. (Last Year: 1.)

Like her wackiness or not, Lady Gaga has changed the face of pop music. And I don't care what you say, she is not a man and she is hot! Just check out the Born This Way video, look out for her exquisite ass and then tell me again that she's not hot.

4. KaDee Strickland. (New Entry).

What first strikes me about KaDee is her accent. As Charlotte King in Private Practice, I was blown away by her soothing Southern belle tones and her gorgeous blonde hair. Then, in season 4 of the show, her character got sexually abused and KaDee showed off her true talent. In LOVE with this woman.

3. Julie Benz. (Last Year: 6).

Oh, Julie. Ever since I set eyes on you in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, I knew you'd always have a place in my heart. Then you played a lesbian in Desperate Housewives, regularly wearing nothing other than a bra, and now I'm hooked. Fancy a date?

2. Jessica Capshaw. (Non-Mover).

I could resist using the naked photo! (But I'm pretty sure you don't mind). You'll all know Jessica from Grey's Anatomy, in which she plays one of the very few lesbians on television, Arizona Robbins. You may also recognize her from her brief stint in The L Word, in which she hooked up with Jennifer Beals. Anyway, she's hot, sweet, talented and pretty much perfect. Which is why she is my number 2.

So who is my number 1? A new entry? Someone from last year? Well, the wait is over...

1) Sara Ramirez. (Last Year: 4.)

Firstly, I'm going to claim that I took the above photo myself. Because, well, I wish I did. The majority of you ladies will know Sara also from Grey's Anatomy, in which she plays newly-wed, bisexual, orthopaedic surgeon. (Hey, I told you Shonda Rhimes chose the hottest ladies!) If you're a die-hard fan, you'll know she is more well-known as a Broadway star: Ramirez won a Tony Award for her portrayal of 'The Lady of the Lake' in Monty Python's Spamalot and has also appeared on original musical soundtracks including musical-to-movie, Chicago, starring Catherine Zeta Jones. All I know is that talented women are the hottest. Plus, I'm a sucker for Latinas (as previously mentioned) and curves, so Ramirez is possibly the perfect woman.

So what did you think about my list? Who did I miss?

Personally, I'm into more feminine ladies, so if you're into the more Tegan & Sara type, let me know in the comments!

Also last year, I was criticized for not including any 'women of colour' in my list. Of course, I find those women hot too, but this is just my personal preference.

Tell me who you think deserved a spot!
