Maxim has already courted controversy by tapping Hailey Baldwin for the top spot on its 2017 Hot 100 list over several better known candidates.

But the men’s mag is really opening eyes with its choice for the rest of this year’s edition of the prestigious Maxim Hot 100 list. The magazine claims choices were made based “on beautiful and bold women who use their platforms—whether Instagram or celebrity megaphone—to define and express themselves.”

“They are actresses, athletes, musicians, and models, yes, but also brand builders, entrepreneurs, and voices of a generation,” according to Maxim.

Of course, from Hannah Davis Jenner to Janelle Monáe to the Hadid sisters, Maxim didn’t skimp on the beauty part.

Here are some of our favorite amazing women that cracked Maxim’s list:
