Miley Cyrus is the most beautiful woman in the world, according to Maxim magazine — the poor man’s Playboy.

“But isn’t Gwyneth Paltrow the most beautiful woman in the world?” you might be asking yourself. It is so hard to keep up with who is the most beautiful these days! The 40-year-old actress was recently given that title, but for the soap opera-loving, middle-aged female demographic that makes up People Magazine’s readership. (RELATED SLIDESHOW: The world’s most hated celebrity is the world’s most beautiful woman)

Cyrus is the perfect choice for Maxim, which has fewer words in its pages or on its website than an Ikea instruction manual.

In comparison, Bar Refaeli topped Maxim’s hot 100 list in 2012. (RELATED SLIDESHOW: So what if Bar Rafeali is a draft dodger?)

The rest of this year’s winners have not been announced yet.
