Among the reasons why: Swift is "deeply unconcerned with whether or not you consider her attractive, which of course only makes her more so," the magazine notes. Fittingly, then, her reaction to winning the top spot: "It's really nice and such an incredible compliment." She adds, "This year has been my favorite year of my life so far. ... In the midst of all that, this is really nice. It really feels like a wonderful celebration of my favorite year."
