Top 10 Sexiest Women of the 1980s


When we weren't watching “Ghostbusters” or listening to big hair rock bands, we were ogling these beauties! Welcome to WatchMojo.com, and today we’re counting down our picks for the top 10 sexiest women per decade: 1980s!

For this list, we've looked at only the sexiest women of the '80s. There are no criteria specifics regarding their profession, we've included all famous females for this one! This is part of a series of videos on the Top 10 Sexiest Women spanning the decades from the '70s to the 2000s. Enjoy!

#10: Morgan Fairchild

'Fair' is as appropriate an adjective as any to describe our first female, as Morgan Fairchild made ‘80s actress-ing a lot more attractive! A star of the CBS soap opera "Search for Tomorrow" in the ‘70s, it was in "Flamingo Road" that Fairchild truly flourished! She was always acutely aware of how hot she was however, and made the most of what God gave her in movies such as "The Seduction" and "Red Headed Stranger". What an absolute fox!

#9: Brooke Shields

Although there were infamous issues surrounding her age and the parts that she played at the beginning of the '80s, by the end of the decade Brooke Shields had established herself as one of Hollywood's hottest stars! Infrequent film work was paired with the odd TV performance, as Shields shimmered through show business like few had before her. She also spent a lot of her time reading French Literature at Princeton University... She really wasn't just a pretty face!

#8: Kim Basinger

Beginning her career as a fashion model, Kim Basinger broke into the world of film at the beginning of the '80s! Her breakthrough role came as a Bond Girl in "Never Say Never Again", which ironically led to Hollywood saying yes, always! Of course, her public profile was considerably helped by a famous Playboy promotional shoot, and her appearance alongside Mickey Rourke in the erotic drama "9 1/2 Weeks." That film may have bombed at the box office, but it has unsurprisingly acquired a certain fan-base since and cemented Ms. Basinger’s status as a babe!

#7: Michelle Pfeiffer

Another blonde beauty, Michelle Pfeiffer came to the world's attention after she starred as alluring Elvira Hancock in "Scarface"! Having added just a little bit of cuteness to cocaine addiction, Pfeiffer's first major commercial success came with "The Witches of Eastwick". A film in which she's unaware of the magical gifts that she's got, she must have kept at least a little of the mysticism once she stepped off set! She's so sexually stimulating, she surely must have superpowers!

#6: Heather Locklear

We can always count on soap operas for a little bit of sexiness, and in the case of "Dynasty," we were dished up some extra-cute eye-candy! There were plenty of pretty girls in the show, but none quite like Sammy Jo! Heather Locklear's character was with "Dynasty" until its cancellation! For a time, she combined her time acting with the Carringtons with a part in cop show "T. J. Hooker", which had everyone even more hooked on her! She was ‘80s TV's lady of lust!

#5: Phoebe Cates

If soap operas have some sex appeal, then 'teen movies' have triple that! Phoebe Cates made a name for herself by starring in films aimed at the '80s adolescent, and boy was she good at her job! Her most famous outing has to be for "Fast Times at Ridgemont High"! That red bikini was a mind-blower, and she was a game-changer! Many who watched imagined they knew how cute she always thought they were', and then they all paused our VCRs directly after - just to prolong the perfection!

#4: Vanessa Williams

This mademoiselle was at one point a model, a singer and an actress... A showbiz all-rounder, the men all wanted to be with her! Vanessa Williams' beauty went all the way to the big leagues too, as in '83 she became the first African-American Miss America - a scandal involving nude photographs meant that she eventually had to relinquish her title, but her adoring public wasn’t exactly complaining there! Making the most of her hot high-profile, Williams spent much of the '80s making music... And making everyone want her!

#3: Kelly LeBrock

In a similar way to Phoebe Cates, Kelly LeBrock's sexiness can largely be linked to one film and one moment! Cast in "Weird Science" as the absolute ideal woman, when she appears at Wyatt and Gary's door, theirs aren't the only jaws that are on the floor! The hipster undies and the nearly not there T-shirt has to be one of the most awesome attires ever seen at the cinema! So sexy, when you see her it's difficult to believe she's real! LeBrock rocks!

#2: Madonna

A pioneer in pop music, Madonna has to be one of the most influential women within the history of celebrity pop culture! Ladies all over the land were copying her style, and luckily enough, her style was hot! The bleached blonde hair, fishnet stockings and lace tops were daring and a little bit dangerous, and we liked that! Achieving worldwide fame for her single "Like a Virgin", Madonna's lyrics were just as racy! She seemed to have confidence in abundance... And that was what made this 'Material Girl' mesmerising!

Before we unveil our top pick, here are a few honorable mentions.
- Kathleen Turner

- Jennifer Beals

- Kathy Ireland

- Rebecca De Mornay

- Isabella Rossellini


#1: Christie Brinkley

Blonde hair, blue eyes, slim figure and a smile seen for miles, Christie Brinkley was the American fashion model: Mark one! In the '80s, no one could hold a candle to her! Gracing the front of three consecutive Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue Editions between 1979 and '81, the early parts of this decade were the beginnings of a prolific career during which she would grace over 500 magazine covers! With statistics that simply can't be ignored - in more ways than one (!) - Brinkley wins this womanly race with ease!
