Oh yes, it’s that time of year again. Time to scroll through the blazing beauties of 2012, or at least those deemed the most beautiful by Maxim. We’ve hand selected a few just for our audience. Do you agree? Should another woman (or perhaps Stephen Colbert?) make OUR list instead?
Summer is just around the corner. Watch out.

Where You’ve Seen Her: Mila Kunis, who, for years, has been on our TVs in hot form (That 70s Show) and cartoon form (Family Guy), has had a big year. The Forgetting Sarah Marshall star dumped Macaulay Culkin, hooked up with Natalie Portman in Black Swan, and accepted an invitation to the Marine Corps Ball in November. Check out the foxy and funny actress in the new film, Friends With Benefits, in theatres today.
Random Fact: Her trademark, according to IMDB, is her different-colored eyes, but we’d say it’s just being pretty damn hot!
One of the highest paying models in the industry, she’s literally MONEY baby. “Birthday: October 20, 1988 Hometown: Mooi River, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa
Where You’ve Seen Her: South African model Candice Swanepoel has been modeling for brands such as Nike, Guess?, Dolce and Gabbana, and Diane von Furstenberg since being discovered at a flea market as a teenager. Now, a full-fledged Victoria’s Secret Angel, Swanepoel can be seen in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and in this new commercial. Oh, God bless the women’s underwear industry.
Random Fact: She is fluent in Portuguese.”
The breakout beauty brings the heat—and the smoke—to Pineapple Express. Watch video of Amber’s Maxim shoot.
Maxim Website says, “Cobie Smulders is not just a pretty face. The How I Met Your Mother star has also got it where it counts—in the funny bone. As babelicious news anchor Robin, Cobie has been going toe-to-toe with comic masterminds like Jason Segel and Neil Patrick Harris for the past six seasons. She makes us laugh, she makes us drool—sometimes at the same time! Now that we’ve finally met Cobie Smulders in person, we won’t stop watching until our TV explodes…or she files a restraining order!
You grew up in Vancouver. Canadians are notoriously polite. Pretend that we’re Canadian. Insult us.
I don’t know if a Canadian would do that!
C’mon! If there were a gun to a Canadian’s head….
First of all, if it were a Canadian, it would be a shotgun, because we have very few handguns. Second of all, I think the word “hoser” would be used, but the Canadian would have to drink lots of beer to slip up like that.”

A quick word before we start this month’s obsession: We’re going to try and get through the following piece without using a single Phil Collins song title, because that’s exactly the kind of dumb, lazy writing we despise. Right—on with the show! So this lovely lady is Lily Collins, daughter of prog rocker turned pop legend Phil, and if you’re sensing electricity “In the Air Tonight” (sorry), you’re not alone: She’s so hot we’d definitely like to have “A Groovy Kind of Love” with her (argh!), either today or “Another Day in Paradise” (sorry, can’t stop!). OK, so the beautiful Lily plays Snow White in this month’s Mirror Mirror (in theatres today), which we can’t wait to be forced to watch with our girlfriends. But, alas, “You Can’t Hurry Love” (damn it!). In conclusion, Lily is awe- some and “Sussudio” (we don’t even know what we’re saying anymore).”
It’s true, the power couple, who has made Forbes list year after year, hip hop and R&B mongols Jay-Z and Beyonce’s new child Blue Ivy is finally here on the green–err concrete earth. Born at Lennox HIll hospital in New York City, there have been some controversies surrounding the little one’s birth–over the top luxury treatment at the hospital, private floor at Lennox, burly security guards resembling night club security roaming the covered up security camera monitored hallways, and over 1.5 million dollars in…toys. But really, can you blame them? They are rich, beautiful, and have to protect their little seed.
I mean, after years of “selling water to a well” one can expect this to happen, no?
Talking up a Blue streak
“Only one person can get Beyoncé, 30, and Jay-Z, 42, to go on the record: Blue. In an unprecedented move, the power couple released their only official joint statement — ever. “Hello Hello Baby Blue! We are happy to announce the arrival of our beautiful daughter, Blue Ivy Carter,” the statement, posted on Beyoncé’s site Monday, reads. “Her birth was emotional and extremely peaceful, we are in heaven. She was delivered naturally at a healthy 7 lbs and it was the best experience of both of our lives. We are thankful to everyone for all your prayers, well wishes, love and support.””-Reported by Arienne Thompson, USA TODAY
What’s behind the name?
“An Ivy by any other name…
“Apple” is so 2004, but that’s not a diss. Sure, Auntie G (aka Gwyneth Paltrow) garnered plenty of attention when she named her daughter after a piece of fruit, but Blue’s moniker is making waves for other reasons. The Internet is abuzz with analysis about little Babyoncé’s name, with fans and bloggers alike speculating that her colorful first name is a nod to dad Jay-Z’s Blueprint album franchise and that her middle name, Ivy, is an interpolation of the roman numeral IV, or 4, which is the couple’s favorite number and happens to be the number of letters in her first name. Clever, clever. “- By Arienne Thompson, USA TODAY
But what about the hospital drama?
Leah Collins from the National Post reports:
“A young father named Edgar Ramirez told the Daily News that his wife gave birth on the same floor as Beyonce, and security kept him from visiting his wife and newborn daughter for three hours. “The security was just ridiculous. I felt like I was in a prison,” Ramirez told the paper, explaining he was held in a waiting room.
According to TMZ, a group of new mothers who felt “neglected” by Lenox Hill Hospital staff during the celebirthing are discussing a lawsuit against the hospital. Rozz Nash-Coulon, a new mother and wife of the Brooklyn man previously mentioned, told the Associated Press that she is among a group of parents who are working to organize a protest against the care they received at Lenox Hill, treatment she described as “disgusting.”
“Once they checked in there was high security everywhere. It looked like the president was on our floor. The hospital’s security cameras were taped over. Internal windows from the hallways into the ward were blacked out,” Nash-Coulon told AP.
In a statement released to to the Daily News, the hospital confirmed that Beyonce and Jay-Z were accompanied by their own security staff at the hospital, however they played down reports of guards troubling other patients, and stated that “the hospital has been and continues to be in control of managing all security.” As spokesperson Ann Silverman told the New York Times: “We have been in control of the security detail, and we remain in control of it. The security plan was designed not to to limit access to patient care areas.”
Sources Say The Security Cameras Were Covered Up
The New York Times says “In a statement, Ms. Knowles and Jay-Z, whose real name is Shawn Carter, said Blue Ivy’s “birth was emotional and extremely peaceful, we are in heaven.” They did not address the complaints from other patients.”
