Kate Upton is ridiculously gorgeous and now it has been made official as the Sports Illustrated swimsuit model was named the sexist woman alive by People Magazine.

The 22-year-old model and actress became the first woman to receive the title on Thursday at the first ever People Magazine Awards show at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. The winners of the awards are selected by editors at People and its sister publication Entertainment Weekly.

Hunky Thor star Chris Hemsworth was named People's Sexiest Man Alive about a month ago and in April, Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o was named the magazine's most beautiful woman of 2014.

Upton accepted her award in a black dress that accentuated her famous curves.

"This is such an honor to me because sexy to me means someone who's confident and happy, and that's the person I always strive to be," Upton said upon receiving her award from Grey's Anatomy actor Eric Dane.

Upton is best known as a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition cover model. She also appeared in the romantic comedy, The Other Woman.

Some of the night's other big winners included Jennifer Aniston and Michael Keaton for Movie Performance of the Year, Lisa Kudrow and Jon Hamm for Television Performance of the Year, Karlie Kloss for Model of the Year, Kate Hudson for Celebrity Role Model of the Year, Jimmy Fallon for Talk Show Host of the Year and Gwen Stefani for Style Icon of the Year, among others.
