In a poll conducted by online men’s magazine AskMen, Jennifer Lawrence was voted the world’s most desirable woman this year, beating out Kate Upton, Mila Kunis, and Rihanna.

We’re actually not surprised. You could see this win for Jennifer Lawrence from a mile away. We may be looking only at her fashion choices, but the fact that she made us stand up for attention with one single dress at the beginning of this year could only mean that great things were in store for this girl in 2012!

And what great things they were! She’s the star of one of this year’s biggest worldwide box office hits, she’s been named the new face of Miss Dior, she’s got numerous film projects in line for her, and now, she’s the world’s most desirable woman.

To celebrate her win, we’re chronicling Jennifer Lawrence’s top 5 dress moments of 2012 in this post.

Oh, and the one single dress we’re talking about? It’s none other than the gold gown she wore to the world premiere of ‘The Hunger Games’, of course.

We know this line is for her Katniss Everdeen character, but we think the same can be used for Jennifer Lawrence: This girl is on fire.
