After a six-week long voting period, 6 million votes have been cast, the ballots have closed and the tallying is complete. What does the modern man look for in his ideal companion?’s list of the Top 99 Most Desirable Women of 2010 inform you.

Penélope Cruz ranked at #7 on the annual list. View her entry here. In a rather surprising outcome in my personal opinion, Emmanuelle Chriqui was number one.

Why She’s #7
Penelope Cruz once said: “The most difficult thing in the world is to start a career known only for your looks and then to try to become a serious actress. No one will take you seriously once you are known as the pretty woman.” Fortunately for Cruz, her biggest fear hasn’t been the case in terms of her career. A muse to famed Spanish director Pedro Almodovar, Cruz has become just as famous stateside for Spanish language films like Volver, for which she won the Best Actress at Cannes, as she is for American films like Woody Allen’s Vicky Cristina Barcelona, for which she won the Academy Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role. Look for Cruz at the Oscars again after her 2009 performance in Nine opposite Daniel Day-Lewis. The Spanish Academy’s Goya Awards have also nominated Cruz for Best Actress for her role in another Almodovar flick, Broken Embraces. To any woman who managed to get through this paragraph without hard feelings, congratulations! Here’s your prize: Penelope will also star in Sex and the City 2.

Note: Pe merely has a cameo in Sex and the City 2.
