Oakley's Roxy Louw Voted FHM’S Sexiest Woman In The World
Twenty-two-year-old, sought-after model and well-known surfer Roxy Louw walked away with top honours this year as FHM’s Sexiest Woman in the World, presented by Samsung 3D, after more than two million record-breaking votes were received.
The American supermodel Marisa Miller was the highest ranking international celebrity (number five on the poll). Best known for her associations with Harley Davidson and lingerie giant Victoria’s Secret, Marisa stole the crown from last year’s winner Megan Fox (who enjoyed the accolade the year before as well).
Visiting the Durban archery club, Roxy was sitting on the grass watching a friend shoot bows when she got the million dollar call from FHM editor Hagen Engler. “Hagen’s a keen surfer too, so it was great to hear the news from him. I was overwhelmed and totally surprised. The worst thing was that I wasn’t able to tell anyone. So I kept it in and just sat their smiling. It was really hard not to breathe a word about it.”
Roxy says that she didn’t even realize that voting was on the go for this year’s FHM 100 Sexiest Women in the World 2010, presented by Samsung 3D, which added to the surprise. She adds: “In previous years I was in Cape Town with my model friends where the topic of FHM 100 Sexiest was always on everyone’s lips. But this year has just flown by, so I didn’t even realize that I was in the running.”
The first person she told was her mom, who was just as excited. “Winning the title is an absolute dream come true and an enormous honour. I remember having Kerry McGregor’s pic as a kid. I’m so stoked!”
Commenting on Roxy as the winner, FHM editor Hagen Engler says: “Roxy Louw is a fresh choice as FHM Sexiest Woman in the World, presented by Samsung 3D and as voted by FHM’s fans. She’s a career surfer, daughter of rugby Springbok legend Rob Louw, and a card-carrying saver of lives. She’s made headlines for so much more than just being beautiful, which she absolutely is! She’s a tomboy who’s great to share a drink with, she knows her sport, she loves to jol, and she’s a blonde bombshell with a perfect body. What’s not to love?"
