What's sexy, you ask? Look no further than Victoria’s Secret Angels Adriana Lima, Lily Aldridge, and Behati Prinsloo.

The lingerie-clad ladies celebrated the release of the 8th "What Is Sexy?" list on Tuesday in Santa Monica, California. Stars like Beyoncé, Jennifer Lawrence, Rihanna, and Blake Lively all made the cut for various reasons.

However, Lily Aldridge revealed she had one other celebrity she would add to the sexy ranks: Kim Kardashian.

"I think Kim Kardashian looks so beautiful," the 27-year-old model told omg!.

Aldridge, wife of Kings of Leon rocker Caleb Followill, gave birth to a baby girl last June and thinks it is crazy how Kardashian, 32, has been criticized for her weight gain.

"[Kim] is a beautiful pregnant lady and it's how you are supposed to look," Aldridge continued. "I think people are crazy. It's ridiculous what people are saying about her."

It's been almost 11 months since Aldridge gave birth, but you'd never know it by looking at her physique.

"I worked really hard, and I'm proud I worked that hard to get back," she said.

"Of course, I'm human and can feel insecure [about my body]. There are times I'm like, 'Ugh my legs.' But I am pretty confident and I work really hard at staying in shape!"

We know Kardashian works out daily, a routine Aldrige lived by when carrying her daughter.

Most recently, Aldridge and a very pregnant Kardashian were pitted against each other in a "Who Wore It Best" scenario after they were both photographed wearing the same Givenchy maxi dress.

"When I was pregnant I did a lot of yoga, about four times a week," Aldridge noted. "That was almost for mental reasons. It was amazing and so fun. I really took care of myself while I was pregnant, I would swim, get massages."

Now, the Victoria's Secret beauty credits ballet with helping her to stay fit.

"It's all about lengthening and strength," Aldridge said.

We think it's great that Aldridge is sticking up for Kim Kardashian. Do you?
