8. Hope Solo

ESPN Body Issue, 2011

Hope Solo is a goalie for the US Women's Soccer team, but she scored major points for her sexy, nude strength on the cover of ESPN's 2011 Body Issue. "I still don’t buy the idea that I’m a sex symbol," she told the magazine. "Sure, I’ve had marriage proposals, invitations to military balls and prom offers. But my entire purpose is trying to be the best, and if that exudes beauty too, that’s pretty powerful. It means the image of the typical female body type is finally evolving.”
