Los Angeles – The sexiest newsmakers so far in 2017 are Kate Middleton, Ivanka Trump and Meghan Markle, according to a new survey from Vivid Entertainment and adult website AIPdaily.com. The results were announced the day before Valentine’s Day.

The survey listed 19 candidates for the “sexiest” honor on the AIPdaily site. The “winner,” Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge (formerly Kate Middleton) is the wife of Prince William (who was also a candidate but received no votes). She edged out the daughter of President Trump and Ms. Markle, the American actress who has been dating Prince Harry.

Others ranking among the top tier of sexiest newsmakers included former President Barrack Obama, his wife Michelle, gymnasts Aly Raisman and Simone Biles, and actor Ryan Gosling. Votes were also cast for Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds, Prince William himself, and television news personality Megyn Kelly.

Among those candidates who received no votes at all as sexiest newsmaker were Donald Trump himself, his wife Melania Trump, son-in-law Jared Kushner and aide Kellyanne Conway. Recently divorced actor Brad Pitt and his ex Angelina Jolie also received no votes, as did Russian president Vladimir Putin.
