Miranda Kerr
The mother-of-one has graces the December cover of Esquire magazine. The shots were taken by photographer David Slijper.

Australian supermodel Miranda Kerr has been voted "Sexiest Woman Alive" in 2012 by UK's leading men's magazine Esquire.

According to a poll conducted by Esquire for its December issue, the Victoria's Secret Angel was declared to be the hottest woman on earth. The 29-year-old supermodel has the face of a goddess, the body of an angel and is married to an elf, the magazine said.

"I believe in celebrating the female figure and embracing what we've been given," she told Esquire after a stunning cover shoot.

The Australian beauty has posed topless for the magazine's latest cover page. She has also given a series of seductive poses for the inside page of the magazine, wearing only a leather jacket and panties, according to Celebuzz.

"I spent my childhood outdoors on my grandparents' farm. I learned to ride a motorbike when I was about six, a little PeeWee 50. I'd climb trees - there was a big weeping willow. We had a flying fox [a zip-line]. I was so fortunate to grow up like that," she said.

"I really feel that my body craves to be in the mountains or by the ocean or in the countryside. I still like to climb the odd tree. Yeah, it's fun! I like to climb. I find it very rewarding. You feel like you are going somewhere. I don't like abseiling, though. I don't like going down. I like going up," she added.

Kerr is married to actor Orlando Bloom and has a son named Flynn Christopher Blanchard Copeland Bloom.
