Jennifer Lawrence is most desirable woman of 2012

What men want has apparently changed significantly in just one year. AskMen’s annual list has newcomers at the top, while yearly favorites fell off the list altogether. has released their 12th annual list of their readers’ most desirable women of the year, and this year was somewhat of a shock. Some familiar faces on the list have fallen and have been replaced with fresher faces. But sex appeal wasn’t the only standard for the list.

“Desirability isn’t any one of these things, but all of them,” said “You chose women who represent the complete package of beauty, brains, ambition and charm. And we think you chose wisely.”

The top of the list includes Mila Kunis, Kate Upton, Rihanna and Emma Stone. But at the number one spot is newcomer Jennifer Lawrence.

“In 2012, sultry 22-year-old actress Jennifer Lawrence achieved wide recognition by playing heroine Katniss Everdeen in the highly anticipated film adaptation of The Hunger Games,” according to the survey. “Based on her performance in the film, Rolling Stone named her ‘the most talented young actress in America.’ In 2012 Jennifer also starred alongside Elisabeth Shue in House at the End of the Street and with Bradley Cooper in Silver Linings Playbook.

But, more noteably than the top choice, there were many celebrities who fell far down the list or fell off altogether.

“Past favorites slid down the list, as Kim Kardashian fell all the way from No. 8 to No. 98 this year, further proof that AskMen readers are tiring of the reality TV star,” said Yahoo. “It’s possible Kim’s relationship with bad boy Kanye West contributed to the 90-spot plunge, but readers clearly didn’t hold dating drama over Kristen Stewart, who may have lost favor with Twihards in 2012, but actually improved her standing with men, jumping from No. 27 last year to No. 7 on this year’s list.”

Others who dropped off the list include favorites like Jennifer Lopez, Jessica Alba, Penelope Cruz, Megan Fox and Taylor Swift.
