Sam Pinto's Secrets: How This Year's Sexiest Woman Stays Hot And Beautiful

Pick up top tricks for looking fab from Cosmo's former cover girl, now hailed the Sexiest Woman in the World by our bro mag, FHM.

We at Cosmo sure know a rising star when we see one. Remember what we said about our April cover girl, Sam Pinto? She's a "Star On The Rise." Well, this star is just sooo hot, she sizzled her way to the top of Cosmo's bro magazine FHM's 100 Sexiest Women In The World 2011 list. She made a huge jump from last year's #32 rank to the #1 spot! "[ I did not expect to be number one], I was just expecting rank three, four, five ako since 'yun 'yung lumalabas, and happy na ako'ng ganoon," she told

But, in the final two weeks of the vote on our bro site, she kept a firm grasp on the top spot, beating FHM regulars and fellow Cosmo cover girls Marian Rivera, Cristine Reyes, and last year's sexiest woman Angel Locsin.

"Mas passionate ang fans ko," she replies with confidence when asked how she managed to reach the top when Marian and Angel's fans are just so passionate. Sam garnered 6.9 million votes to beat 99 other contenders for the title. She'll be honored at the cabaret-themed FHM 100 Sexiest Party tomorrow night, July 14, in World Trade Center along with FHM July cover girl Eula Valdes and other sexy celebs. (Watch for our coverage!)

My style is sexy and classy.
