10. Charlize Theron: The Oscar-winning blonde had a busy year last year, with roles in big-budget films Snow White and the Huntsman and Prometheus. She also shaved her hair off and flew back to Africa to film her role in Mad Max: Fury Road with Tom Hardy. We can't wait!
9. Natalie Portman: After she swept the awards board in 2011 for her role in Black Swan, the brunette beauty took time off to have a baby and tie the knot. She's currently working on the Thor sequel with Chris Hemsworth, and an upcoming project with Tree of Life director Terrence Malick.
8. Zooey Deschanel: She's had roles in films such as 2011's Your Highness and indie favourite (500) Days of Summer - but Deschanel is currently starring in TV comedy New Girl.
7. Anne Hathaway: She starred as the sexy Selina Kyle in last year's The Dark Knight Rises and has been picking up awards left, right and centre for her role as Fantine in Les Miserables. It's a long, long way from The Princess Diaries!
6. Emma Watson: She found global superstardom as Hermione in the Harry Potter franchise, but has since tried to shake off her squeaky clean image with a role as a troubled teen in the critically acclaimed Perks of Being a Wallflower.
5. Mila Kunis: The former That 70's Show star saw a fresh career boost with her role in Black Swan - and the brunette bombshell has since landed roles in Friends With Benefits, Ted and the soon-to-be released Wizard of Oz prequel Oz: The Great and Powerful.
4. Emma Stone: She made waves in 2010's hilarious Easy A, and has since carved out a name for herself as one of the most exciting young stars of the current crop. She's had roles in The Help, Gangster Squad, The Amazing Spider-Man and Crazy, Stupid, Love - to name a few! Busy woman!
3. Kristen Stewart: She burst onto the scene in 2008's Twilight and has played Bella Swan in five films since - and with the vampire madness out the way, K-Stew has landed another franchise role as Snow White, and starred in the edgy On the Road.
2. Scarlett Johansson: The stunning blonde landed blockbuster roles in Iron Man 2 and The Avengers, and appeared as iconic actress Janet Leigh in Hitchcock late last year.
1. Jennifer Lawrence: The Hunger Games star is one of our favourite actresses at the moment - probably because she refuses to fit to the Hollywood model. She also appeared in X-Men: First Class and just picked up a Golden Globe for her role in Silver Linings Playbook.
