1. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Modeling Credentials: This Victoria's Secret Angel lets her wings do the talking.

Acting Highlight: Having previously worked with Michael Bay on a Victoria's Secret commercial, Rosie became Megan Fox's more-than-qualified replacement in Transformers: Dark of the Moon.

2. Kate Upton

Modeling Credentials: One word: bouncy.

Acting Highlight: After entering the model-slash phase of her career and auditioning for The Other Woman, Kate got cast as "the boobs"... Hardly surprising...

3. Megan Fox

Modeling credentials: Clue's in the name...

Acting Highlight: Rightly won the lead female role of Mikaela Banes after auditioning for the part of the skilled, sexy car mechanic in her breakout role for Transformers.

----------------------------------------------

4. Amanda Seyfried

Modeling Credentials: Sextasitc Nordic princess who began modelling at 11... No wonder she's got this thing down!

Acting Highlight: Since stopping modelling at the tender age of 17, Amanda tried her hand at acting and ended up playing America's first mainstream porn star in Lovelace.

5. Emily Ratajkowski

Modeling Credentials: Danced around naked in Robin Thicke's music video for "Blurred Lines", and has since been enhancing the lives of every red-blooded male the world over.

6. Angelina Jolie

Modeling Credentials: From her inconceivable curves to those wide, green eyes, there's not a pixel out of place here.

7. Jennifer Lawrence

8. Evangeline Lilly

Modeling Credentials: If this beautiful miracle isn't proof that there is a God, then I don't know what is.

9. Olga Kurylenko

Modeling Credentials: A tri-lingual Ukrainian babe who loves knee-high boots. Go figure.

----------------------------------------------

10. Rebecca Romijn

Hollywood's been dipping into the model pool to sex things up a bit for years... I think you'll agree it's always a good thing...
