Maxim has honored Taylor Swift with the top spot on its Hot 100 list, calling her the “world’s most relevant and intriguing woman.” For the highly anticipated magazine cover, Taylor is seen wearing a black, mesh top and rocks a damp, messy hair look. Wearing dark eye makeup, she gives a smoldering look to the camera, while parting her lips just a bit in a serious expression, according to Entertainment Weekly.
The cover was revealed after the 2015 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday. Taylor joins the likes of Candice Swanepoel (2014), Miley Cyrus (2013), Bar Refaeli (2012), Rosie Huntington Whiteley (2011), Katy Perry (2010) and a plethora of other celebs for the top honor. The “Style” singer slayed the red carpet in her white jumpsuit and also took home eight awards, including the most coveted of the evening -- Billboard’s Top Artist. She was seated next to new boyfriend Calvin Harris at the event. Her “Bad Blood” music video also premiered the same day.
Speaking to Maxim, Swift said it was a great compliment to be on the magazine’s Top 100 list. She said that this year was her favorite year as she made an album the way she wanted to make it, adding that she also put it out exactly the way she dreamed of putting it. According to Swift, all her ideas came to fruition. She was proud of her videos and of the tour, adding that the Top 100 added to her celebratory spirit.
Kate Lanphear, editor-in-chief of Maxim, said it was a dream to work with Swift. The June/July issue of Maxim will be available on newsstands May 27.
