Rich, famous, and beautiful! There are some celebrities that were clearly blessed in the genetics department. Beauty may be in the eyes of the beholder, but most would probably agree that the ladies who made our top sexiest female celebrities under 30 list definitely deserve to be there.
Whether they have that charming girl-next-door vibe, a sophisticated air, or possess that undeniable sex appeal, these celebrities are sure to attract your attention. True, they may have a team dedicated to making them ooze sexiness, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t attractive. These celebs work hard for their toned bodies, perfect hair, and glowing skin. Some go on crazy diets. Others are self-proclaimed yoga junkies. Whatever their secret is, one thing is clear; it’s working.
We have listed 10 of the sexiest female celebrities under 30 because that’s when most of these ladies are at their hottest and their careers are on fire. The lives of the rich and the famous can make us green with envy, but we have to admit that the ladies on this list deserve their spots because of their irresistible appeal. After you’re done reading, make sure to clean up any excess drool from your mouth.
10 Rihanna, Age 27
The sexy Barbados native began her career in late 2003 and hasn’t slowed down since. As one of the best-selling artists of all time, this R & B singer’s career is on fire. What also makes Rihanna so sexy is that she frequently wears outfits that leave little to the imagination. She transformed from an innocent-looking girl to crazy sex appeal during the release of her third album Good Girl Gone Bad and we saw the much edgier Rihanna that we know and love today. Rihanna is talented and willing to pick herself back up after being knocked down (literally, by Chris Brown) and that’s what makes her hot.
9 Emma Watson, Age 25
This sophisticated Brit is not only gorgeous, but crazy intelligent and accomplished. The Brown University grad and Harry Potter alum is also a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador who has worked hard to promote the UN Women campaign known as HeForShe, which advocates for equal rights for men and women. While Emma Watson may stick to her proper nature, we know that underlying this pristine look is one hot lady who could make men (and women) fall to their knees to do whatever pleased her. She’s also a fashion consultant and creates clothing for People Tree. Who wouldn’t want this star’s fashion advice?
8 Irina Shayk, Age 29
The beautiful Russian model is best known for her looks from her Sports Illustrated modeling since 2007 and was the first Russian to land on the cover of the high-profile magazine in 2011. Shayk is currently ranked high in the “Top 20 Sexiest Models” list on Models.com and has appeared on the runways for high fashion lines such as Givenchy. What put Shayk on everyone’s radar was her sizzling acting debut as Megara in Hercules with Dwayne Johnson. We aren’t the only ones to notice how hot she is either. Recent reports have stated that the stunning model is dating Bradley Cooper, whose own career is currently on the upward trend as well.
7 Blake Lively, Age 27
Former Gossip Girl star Blake Lively may have just had a baby, but you would never have guessed it with her most recent appearances for her new movie The Age of Adaline. It shouldn’t surprise anyone that she’s made our list since the star has been named People magazine’s Most Beautiful at Every Age in 2012 and Time magazine’s 100 Influential People list. This blonde bombshell has graced the covers countless beauty magazines and has been the face of Gucci and L’Oreal. Lively’s acting may be superb, but the star is so hot that she could make just as much money from her beauty alone if she wanted.
6 Jennifer Lawrence, Age 24
While no one could deny that Jennifer Lawrence had acting chops in her Winter’s Bone role (which she won an Academy Award for), we had no idea she was so funny until the star began appearing on late night talk shows from her Hunger Games popularity. This funny girl has had us laughing since she bravely owned her accidental trip while accepting an award at the Oscars. Her down-to-earth attitude makes her seem accessible despite her good looks and powerful influence. The star’s leaked nude photos in 2014 may have displeased her, but it sure did make many fans happy.
5 Alexandra Daddario, Age 29
The American actress is best known for her role as Annabeth Chase in the Percy Jacskson& the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, but Daddario really caught everyone’s attention in her role on the HBO series True Detective, where she appeared nude and showed off her toned body as she straddles Woody Harrelson and handcuffs him. Daddario said she had no qualms about doing the scene and doesn’t even mind that the President of the United States has seen her nude since he reportedly asked HBO C.E.O. Richard Plepler for advance copies of the show. We agree with the President that Daddario is worth watching.
4 Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Age 28
This Victoria’s Secret model and Transformers actress is no stranger to the word “hot”. Huntington-Whiteley has landed on the covers of magazines such as British Vogue, Elle, and GQ and has been listed as FHM’s World’s Sexiest Woman in a 2011 poll. As the face of Burberry, Huntington-Whiteley is used to her face and body being the first thing people notice about her, but her acting skills put her career in full-throttle. The stunner is also known for her impeccable style on the red carpet and turns heads wherever she goes.
3 Emilia Clarke, Age 28
Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke is arguably one of the hottest actresses around currently. This star’s beautiful looks and career success as Daenerys Targaryen has launched her to the top of our list of hot stars under 30. Her role as the Khaleesi was so amazing that the star won an Emmy Award for her role in 2013. The London native takes on her nude roles in Game of Thrones in stride and isn’t shy about them. In fact, she was even offered the lead role in the sexy Fifty Shades of Grey film, but turned the role down. Fans may be bummed to hear that Daenerys won’t appear naked as much these days since she became a queen.
2 Emmy Rossum, Age 28
Actress and most recently singer-songwriter Emmy Rossum got her start on the daytime soap opera As the World Turns at only 12 years old but grew up to become a stunning woman known for sexy roles such as on Shameless where she appears topless in her role as Fiona Gallagher. Rossum says that the nudity doesn’t bother her, but she doesn’t take her clothes off unless she feels it’s relevant to the story. The actress has stated, “There have been times when I’ve said, ‘Nope, I don’t think that’s important to the story. I’m not going to do it.’”
This actress knows when it’s time to allow some nudity and when to put on the breaks, but the calculated moves don’t surprise us either considering that she’s a Stanford graduate. Her variety in acting and smoking hot body makes Rossum a rising hot star that we are going to keep an eye on.
1 Nina Dobrev, Age 26
It’s no wonder that the two Salvatore brothers fight over the attention of Nina Dobrev’s character in TheVampire Diaries. The Bulgarian-born actress is a natural stunner and has been on our radar since her portrayal of single teen mom Mia in Degrassi: The Next Generation. She recently made waves when she announced her decision to leave the series. The star has landed roles in movies such as The Perks of Being a Wallflower alongside Emma Watson and comedy film Let’s Be Cops. We’re sad to see her go from The Vampire Diaries considering that her sexiest roles originated there, but we have hope that this beautiful brunette will continue to pick hot roles that she plays so effortlessly.
