In a year that saw Rihanna ejected from a farmer’s land for filming inappropriately sexual scenes and complaints about her attire and sex simulated actions in videos and on TV, there are still plenty of people out there who appreciate her more raunchy poses.

The 23-year-old Barbadian has captured the hearts of the ad world, which voted her sizzling adverts for Armani Underwear the sexiest of 2011.

The daring display was hailed the best of the year in a poll of advertising industry chiefs carried out by US magazine Advertising Age.

The magazine rhapsodized about the singer, saying she had never looked better.

“It’s Rihanna at her sexiest. She’s never looked this good,” they said, adding: “She’s in amazing shape and the pictures are stunning.”

Australian supermodel Miranda Kerr finished in second place thanks to her breathtaking return to underwear modelling for Victoria’s Secret just weeks after having her first child earlier this year.

Miranda, married to Hollywood actor Orlando Bloom, had taken a career break while pregnant with baby Flynn.

But following the birth, Miranda managed to carry out a miraculous makeover, appearing on the catwalk and in print campaigns with a tummy that looked tauter than ever.

Advertising Age hailed the new mother in the article, calling her “fabulous”.

British supermodel Kate Moss, last year’s winner, finished in third place thanks to her topless campaign for Italian clothing firm Liu Jo.

A series of Hope lingerie adverts secured fourth for Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen, also a new mother after giving birth a little over two years ago.

Soccer star Ronaldo’s stunning girlfriend Irina Shayk helped little-known American swimwear firm Luli Fama clinch 5th place. Advertising Age said the model was currently in “massive demand.”

Stunning model and mother of four Heidi Klum took sixth place while promoting her own TV show Project Runway.

One-time Baywatch babe Pamela Anderson finished in seventh position for her sensual adverts for stockings firm Secrets In Lace.

Model Lily Aldridge, married to Kings Of Leon rocker Caleb Followill, was eighth for what Advertising Age called her “stunning campaigns” with Victoria’s Secret.

Brazilian model Bar Refaeli took ninth for her Passionata underwear adverts, while American model Kate Upton completed the Top 10 for her campaign for Jenna Leigh Lingerie.
