Maxim Party Invite “For Beautiful Female Guests Only”

I guess we shouldn’t be too surprised when Maxim does something totally looks-ist and gross. Apparently, the magazine sent out a pretty horrifying invite to their Hot 100 party that is going down in Los Angeles next week. The party is to celebrate the 100 women who they’ve dubbed the hottest in the world—#1 this year is Rosie Huntington-Whiteley—but they apparently want to make sure that the room doesn’t have any fugly ladies in it. According to The New York Post, their invitation read, “The invite is for beautiful female guests only, 21 or older. E-mail RSVP with a recent photo. Confirmation required.” The audacity of inviting someone to a shindig and then setting them up to be judged on their appearance … well … it makes me pretty mad. A Maxim rep says that this wasn’t an official invite, and was sent out by an outside promoter, and we’ll hope that’s the case. But if it’s true, I can’t wait for the day when men have to submit photos and have their looks judged just to be put on the list for a lame party. Maybe there should be an IQ test, too.

Maxim Declares That Katy Perry Is The Hottest Woman Of 2010

So, way back when, I used to work at Maxim and was kind of, sort of privy to the incredible weighing of pros and cons that goes into selecting their Hot 100. Choosing the 100 was actually a pretty laborious process, but choosing the woman who ranked number uno was really only tough for one poor schmuck and that was the person who was in charge of getting the biggest name to agree to appear on a future cover in exchange for the top spot. In years past, that woman has been Eva Longoria (twice!), Lindsay Lohan, Olivia Wilde, Jessica Alba, and Marisa Miller. This year, the choice of Katy Perry as the “First Lady of Hot” is somewhat surprising given that she isn’t as stereotypically men’s magazine hot, wears wacky outfits and is kind of kooky all around.

Maxim just released their latest Hot 100 list and swimsuit model Marissa Miller grabbed the top spot. All in all, the list was filled with the usual suspects — Christina Aguilera, Eva Longoria, Lindsay Lohan — and some surprisingly cool women we’re proud of Maxim for pickings — Zooey Deschanel, America Ferrara, and Kat Von D. But we did have some suggestions for who we would have included — and who we would have have dropped. The Top Five Additions (and Subtractions) after the jump… Keep reading »
