    Minka Kelly

    Minka Kelly has been a hottie for a while now, but 2011 was particularly good to her. She made headlines for her breakup with Yankee short stop Derek Jeter and despite it's short run had a starring role on the remake of 'Charlies Angels'. We can only imagine that she will get even hotter in 2012.

    Blake Lively

    She continued her TV success with another season of 'Gossip Girl' this year plus she scored a big film role in 'Green Lantern'. Unfortunately she also was a victim of a phone hack where we got to all of Blake's bits and pieces. Too bad 'Green Lantern' didn't do so well because we could get use to seeing her in a flight suit. Mmm Mmmm.
