The 50 sexiest women in Wales.

Last year, Amanda Protheroe-Thomas sailed off with the crown, this year it's actress Alex Dunn...together with 49 of the sexiest, sassiest, altogether most fabulous women in Wales

1. Alex Dunn

'It makes me giggle when people say that I'm sexy, and now the sexiest woman in Wales!' the actress and model laughed when we told her she'd topped the WM list, taking the place of last year's winner AP-T, who of course, wasn't allowed to enter at all this year.

'Like anyone, I get good days where you take a bit longer putting on your lipstick and dressing up. But everyday, I'm not too sure that I AM sexy.'

Working in the public eye, the 26-year-old from Merthyr Tydfil might be constantly judged on her looks but she doesn't believe that equals sex appeal.

'To me being sexy is all about an attitude and a confidence. It doesn't matter if you are big or small or tall or short I think it is all to do with confidence in what you wear and what you do. I feel confident and comfortable in jeans and a little glam top. That's when I feel sexy. But it's more than looks: it's an attitude.'

As someone who refuses to spend hours in front of the mirror, Alex is very down to earth with her beauty routines. 'I spend money on my base make up, Nars blusher and an expensive foundation but I absolutely love cheap mascara like Rimmel.

'As for any other beauty advice the best tip really is to drink lots of water, don't go to bed with your make-up on and I have started to try and eat five portions of fruit and veg. But I am really bad when it comes to the gym, I'm just not a gym person.'

As a mother of four-year-old Montianna, she doesn't always feel sexy. 'I never felt sexy during the pregnancy.'

Since we last saw Alex play Clare in Nuts and Bolts in 2002, she's appeared in a short gangster film. But her easy tips for instant glamour are the same as any other woman's. 'I think you should just have your hair done, buy something new, just spend the time to glam yourself up and feel good.'
