Beyoncé has been crowned Sexiest Songstress by the Victoria's Secret models.

The superstar was rewarded for her sex appeal for the third year in a row by the world's most desirable group of models as part of their 8th annual 'What is Sexy List.'

The catwalk divas have released a new video which sees some the lingerie brand's most famous faces - including Karlie Kloss, Erin Heatherton, Candice Swanepoel and alessandro ambrosio - give their experienced judgement on some of Hollywood's leading ladies.

The list saw several other repeat entries including Jessica Chastain, who went from 2012's Sexiest Smile to this year's Sexiest Actress, and Rihanna, who took home Sexiest Bikini Body.

As well as more conventional beauty categories like Sexiest Legs (Blake Lively), Sexiest Eyes (Zooey Deschanel) and Sexiest Smile (Zoe Saldana), the Angels placed emphasis on other attractive qualities.

Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence made the list for the first time for Sexiest Sense of Humour after becoming a firm favourite on the red carpet with her tongue-in-cheek jokes.

Personal style was also appraised, with the 'Twilight' saga actress Ashley Greene scooping Sexiest Sporty Style and model Nina Dobrev taking Sexiest Style.
