The 22-year-old – who was named the Sexiest Woman Alive at the People Magazine Awards last week – topped the list obtained by Style.com, beating more established names including Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Gisele Bündchen.
The model’s high ranking was likely aided by her role in Hollywood rom-com, The Other Woman, and her year-long relationship with baseball star Justin Verlander.
Kardashian sibling Kendall Jenner, who modeled for Chanel, Givenchy and Balmain this year, took second place while Miranda Kerr – who has a three-year-old son with Orlando Bloom – came third.
Despite being named Model of the Year at last month’s British Fashion Awards, Cara Delevingne only claimed 16th place.

Ahead in the rankings were Heidi Klum in fourth place, Behati Prinsloo – the wife of singer Adam Levine – in seventh, and Victoria’s Secret Angel Lily Aldridge at number 12.
And Aldridge wasn’t the only Angel to make the list: Karlie Kloss was the ninth most-searched model, Alessandra Ambrosio was 11th and Doutzen Kroes was 14th.
