The Hottest Leading Ladies Of 2015

This is by far my favorite list to gather at the end of every year, and why wouldn't it be? I don't need to add any kind of criteria, or even really to explain myself. Just pick the leading ladies who made things steamy for me during the year. It's all about personal taste, right? That doesn't mean it's an easy list to put together. You think it's easy finding the best possible photo of Rebecca Ferguson in her yellow Mission: Impossible-Rogue Nation dress? It's hard work, but work I'm more than happy to do. Some of these are old standbys and personal favorites who will be on this list no matter what, like Carey Mulligan and Mary Elizabeth Winstead, while there are a few newcomers that I expect will be on here a lot, like Daisy Ridley. "Hot Chicks with Lightsabers" was the alternate title of this post. There's even one WWE Diva who made the list. Boom! Bases covered.

Some of these ladies are funny, some are just plain vicious, some are refined, some are a bit rough around the edges, but all are talented and super hot in their own way. So check it out, here are my picks for the hottest ladies of 2015. Be sure to follow all of our "Best of 2015" coverage here!
