Kylie Minogue is a pint-sized pop princess and frequently named as one of the sexiest women in the world. Why? Well, at 5' 1", she's perfectly proportioned and has an impressively pert rear. Her music video for "Spinning Around" had gold spandex hot pants flying off shelves but, although she's got great "support," she still maintains class.

Why she's sexy: Her derrière is insured for around $5 million and she's still cute at age 43, but in Kylie's case brains can sometimes top beauty. Here, she's pictured receiving an honorary Doctor of Health Sciences degree from Angela Ruskin University in the UK.
