Victoria's Secret has released its annual "What is Sexy" list for 2016.

The list is an arbitrary roundup of the "sexiest" lips, legs, hair and eyeballs among women in the fashion and entertainment industries.

"As the authority on what is sexy now," the lingerie company chose women who "embody an aspirational lifestyle" for the list, according to a Victoria's Secret press release.

The beautiful women on the list have truly accomplished some incredible things this year, and we totally support using the term "sexy" to describe a look, when it's appropriate. 

But telling us what a "sexy" pair of lips looks like? Or worse, "sexy hair," can only serve to make women without that lipstick or without a full head of long hair feel less adequate and less worthy of being called sexy in their own right.

To prove the point, here are the winners from VS's "What Is Sexy" list. And below them, a few picks of our own.
