AskMen, who used to be known for its highly anticipated "Most Desirable Women" list, has changed the game this year by looking instead for the 99 most "Outstanding Women." Included in the top 99 was model and "Snack Off" host Chrissy Teigen, who was cited as outstanding for her ability to "love eating...while remaining in SI Swimsuit Edition shape."
This year's list placed an emphasis on all of the things that a man would find attractive in a potential girlfriend, including sense of humor, and an impressive career. AskMen publisher James Bassil describes an outstanding woman by saying, "They’re interesting. They’re dynamic. They have good taste. They’re good conversationalists." One such example on the list is upcoming MTV Movie Awards host comedian Amy Schumer, whose sarcastic wit has driven the success of her sketch show "Inside Amy Schumer" on Comedy Central, and who recently wrote and starred in her own movie, "Trainwreck."
Business powerhouses also made a strong showing on the list. One such bad ass lady is star coder Rebecca Garcia, who, in addition to working at SquareSpace, volunteers at the CoderDojo, a non-profit that teaches young people how to code.
At the top of the list is the radiant, outspoken and very socially conscious Emma Watson, who is the United Nation's Women Goodwill Ambassador, and who has made headlines with her impassioned plea that the world understand "Gender equality is your issue, too."
