Forget all that happened in 2016, because, after a series of highs and lows over the past 365 days, some of our favorite women have been doing the most with themselves, vying for position in our annual Sexiest Women of the Year list.

Following some serious research and lots of debate, we've landed on Australian actress Margot Robbie as our leading lady, after a year that saw her star in a blockbuster hit (Suicide Squad), and fall into the top-4 of the highest-grossing actors this year.

After giving you the full, top-100 slideshow yesterday that show-off all of our sexy and talented women of the year, here's another peek for you to enjoy them all—without all the clicks.

Being sexy means having a combination of sex appeal, talent and charisma, and no other woman on the planet displayed all three of those traits—and more—than Margot Robbie in 2016. The distinction is well-deserved.

1. Margot Robbie

Drumroll, please: The sexiest woman in the world for 2016 is Margot Robbie, the Aussie who continues to melt hearts across the world with her stunning looks and impeccable talents.

The 26-year-old Margot has been featured in films such as The Wolf of Wall Street (2013), Focus (2015) and The Legend of Tarzan (2015), but it was her role as deranged Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad that thrust Margot Robbie to another stratosphere.

Much like the aforementioned Scarlett Johansson, Margot found herself in the top-4 of Forbes' highest-grossing actors list for 2016, bringing in an estimated $1.1 billion at the box office.

And, while her professional life has been booming, her personal life is just as great, as Margot recently married Tom Ackerley just a few weeks ago—with the actress even making guests get the same, matching tattoo at the ceremony.

Margot Robbie epitomizes the word sexy in all that she does, so let's celebrate her 2016 with a glass of champagne and the top spot on our 100 Sexiest Women in the World list.

2. Scarlett Johansson

As we all age and seem to change, 32-year-old actress Scarlett Johansson seems to just keep getting better, as she's sexier today than she was when we all first fell in love with her over a decade ago.

More than just sultry, though, Scarlett is pretty damn talented, too, with her earning top-billing on Forbes' highest-grossing actors list for 2016 with more than $1.2 billion at the box office.

3. Emily Ratajkowski

It's been quite the road for the sexy Emily Ratajkowski, who has seen herself go from "that one girl dancing topless" in Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" video a few years ago, to a mega-star in the modeling scene.

Scoring magazine covers left and right, Emily has positioned herself as quite the advocate for both women's health and other deeper issues in the fashion industry, which, when paired with her stunning looks, is quite the sexy combination.

4. Beyonce

Forget Becky with the good hair, because, as has become the norm, 2016 was all about Beyonce.

Sexy, confident and on a level of her own in the music business, Queen Bey showed her versatility and innovation thanks to her 2016 release of Lemonade, which, in addition to debuting at number one on the Billboard 200 chart, was also a one-hour HBO movie that millions tuned in for.

It really is Beyonce's world and we're all just trying to live in it.

5. Jennifer Lawrence

She may not have grabbed our top spot on this list—as she did back in 2014—but Jennifer Lawrence remains to be one of the most jaw-dropping women on the planet.

Thanks to a successful year which included roles in films like X-Men: Apocalypse and the recently released film Passengers, Lawrence's films had grossed millions worldwide, proving why she's an A-list superstar.

6. Taylor Swift

Another year, another gigantic success for Taylor Swift, who continues to be a pioneer in the entertainment space—while also being as sexy as can be.

In addition to her leading all musicians in earning in 2016, Tay continues to burn up the Interwebs thanks to her Instagram account, too.

7. Kendall Jenner

Much like her stepsister Kim Kardashian, Kendall Jenner might be every man's guiltiest pleasure—and, trust us, there could be worse things in the world than crushing all over the brunette beauty.

Breaking down the walls in the fashion industry, Kendall's budding modeling career has taken off, with her even being named as the No. 3 highest-paid model in the world, bringing in $10 million in 2016.

8. Emilia Clarke

You don't need to be a Game of Thrones fan to love Emilia Clarke, who's best-known for her role as Daenerys Targaryen on the blockbuster TV show.

In addition to her spot on GOT, the 30-year-old Emilia has garnered various film roles, too, with her recently being named the female lead in the Untitled Star Wars Han Solo film.

9. Ciara

While 2015 saw singer Ciara's sixth album released, it was 2016 where she really enjoyed the best year of her life.

Marrying Russell Wilson—the Super Bowl-winning quarterback of the Seattle Seahawks—Ciara continued to do sexy things to show why she falls so high on our top-100 list.

10. Kim Kardashian

Between all of the crazy rumors and the insane fanicism for Kim Kardashian—remember the guy who literally kissed her butt?—she continues to thrive and be, arguably, the most desired celebrity on social media.

Whether you like it or not, Kim Kardashian will forever remain one of the sexiest ladies on the planet, so you decide whether to keep her as your guilty pleasure, or just own up to it already.
