French-Filipina model turned actress Solenn Heussaff was named ‘Sexiest Woman Alive‘ by men’s magazine Esquire Philippines.
Also announced as the cover girl of February 2013 issue on Tuesday.
Three days after releasing the behind-the-scenes video, Esquire released the photo on Wednesday.
“We’ve been seeing a lot of her these days, with ads for vodka, pizza and condos,” Esquire said in its description on YouTube.
“But we’ve also been seeing her with a lot less – less clothing, inhibitions, and fear. Sexy has become synonymous with Solenn. How could we deny her the title?,” it added.
Solenn is the first local celebrity to be named the coveted title by the magazine since it debuted in the Philippines in October 2011.
Meanwhile, Australian model Miranda Kerr and American actress Mila Kunis were named “Sexiest Woman Alive” for the year 2012 in UK and USA.
