Along with the tweet, she included a very seductive photo of herself lying on the ground in a gold bathing suit with her hair slicked to the side. It's safe to assume that the photo will be part of the magazine's feature.
Last year's highest-ranked lady on the list was model Bar Rafaeli.
This is a huge boost for Miley, who was way down at number 68 (!) on last year's list.
This is also interesting given that FHM's own list of the year's 100 sexiest women was just released this week, and Miley was inexplicably nowhere to be found on the list. But we think getting number one on Maxim's list more than makes up for that snub.
