The annual Esquire November issue chronicling female attractiveness has been ongoing since 2004 with the only Black woman to win it prior to RiRi doing so this year being Halle Berry in 2008.
Yeah, yeah for you nitpickers out there, Halle's biracial. however she's unequivocally stated multiple times she is and identifies as a Black woman since the 90's. As far as I and many peeps are concerned, Halle's a sistah. Halle is also the oldest woman to win it at age 42 and won it after giving birth to her daughter Nahla.
Well, you know what they say about good Black not cracking...
But enough about Halle, this is RiRi's moment to shine.
Robyn Rihanna Fenty definitely has it going on. She's 23, drop dead gorgeous and once had her legs insured by Lloyd's of London for $1 million dollars.
She just seems to effortlessly exude sexy even though she'll constantly say in interview after interview she's not trying to be a sex symbol. She's just got it like that. She's got those hypnotic hazel eyes and she's 178 cm tall (5' 10")
You could put a potato sack on her and she'd make it look like haute couture clothing, but looks good in whatever clothing you put on her in addition to changing hairstyles, length and the color of her hair.
So yeah, Esquire definitely made the right choice this year in selecting her as their 2011 Sexiest Woman Alive
