As you guys probably already know, Kate Beckinsale was named Esquire magazine’s “Sexiest Woman Alive” for 2009. And you probably know this tasty bit of information thanks to the shwingtastic video that I posted just last Friday. Well, today we get Kate’s “Sexiest Woman Alive” photoshoot, and as you can see, the photos are just as hot as the video if not more so. Sweet Christmas! They really hot the nail on the head with this one, eh? Enjoy the pics, and make sure to check out Esquire for more Beckinsale hotness.
