Sexiest Woman Alive is an annual feature of Esquire Magazine and is designation by the magazine as a benchmark of female attractiveness for that year. Originally, it was a part of the "Women We Love" issue that was released in November to build interest, the magazine would do a tease, releasing images of the woman's body parts in the issues preceding the November issue. By 2007, it has become the dominating story of the issue and to create an element of surprise the hints were abandoned. In 2004 Esquire began giving the winners the cover with the first winner being Angelina Jolie in 2004.
