Blake Lively named 2011's 'most desirable woman'
"Gossip Girl's" curvaceous blond bombshell is rocking the list at No. 1, jumping from the No. 85 position last year. And what's not to desire?
The 23-year-old SoCal native, who plays New York "it" girl Serena Van Der Woodsen on the CW show, got her big-screen break as a flirty soccer player in "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" and showed her range by playing opposite of type in Ben Affleck's "The Town," surprising many critics.
Her beauty mark could also give Cindy Crawford a run for her money.
On the slate for Lively this summer is "The Green Lantern," one of the many comic-book-inspired flicks of 2011. She'll be playing Carol Ferris to Ryan Reynolds' Hal Jordan. Be still, fanboy hearts!
Lively's runners up: "Black Swan" star Mila Kunis came in at No. 2 and "Modern Family" firecracker Sofia Vergara finished third, beating out Scarlett Johansson, Kim Kardashian and a slew of supermodels.

Poor, poor Penn Badgley. Wish you two didn't call it quits now, dontcha?
