Lingerie model Karolina Kurkova has been voted the world’s sexiest woman by E! entertainment television, beating a number of worthy foes for the honor.

The Czech native, recognized by Forbes magazine as one of the planet’s highest paid models, was dubbed by E! as “she of the mysterious belly button” due to “media speculation about what appears to be an unusually smooth navel.”

We can’t speak to whether she’s had navel work done, but Kurkova won the honor over Bar Rafaeli, who came in #2, and Angelina Jolie, who took the bronze.

Congratulations to Karolina Kurkova. Here’s the complete list of the top 10 sexiest women on Earth – representing six continents! – as ranked by E!:
