Stars showed up in full force last night in Santa Monica for Maxim's annual Hot 100 party. The mag just unveiled its list of Hollywood's hottest ladies — with "Year One" co-star Olivia Wilde taking the coveted #1 spot — and the event's red carpet was just as sizzling.
Ciara may have been down at #32 on the list, but the sexy singer stole the spotlight on the red carpet, sporting some throwback cornrows. Though they didn't make this year's list, Tila Tequila and Vanessa Minnillo were graciously willing to party with those who did and both broke out the bold colors.
And would it really be a party without an appearance by the recently christened Mr. and Mrs. Spencer Pratt? We think not. Heidi Montag (#81) and her hubby showed up fashionably late, arriving at just a little before 11 p.m. Check out the pics of all the other stars who came out to celebrate Maxim's hottest!

Ciara just celebrated next week's release of her album, Fantasy Ride, in her hometown of Atlanta with a host of family and friends by her side. In support of her third solo effort, music industry peers such as Young Jeezy, Monica, Juelz Santana and even her parents came out to show love at A-Town's trendy hot spot the Luckie Lounge. Longtime mentor and producer Jazze Pha was also in the building, putting to rest any signs of a fallout between the two. To ring in the event like a true superstar, Ciara arrived to the function in a spanking-new charcoal grey drop-top Rolls Royce Phantom. See the photos below!
Ciara has found a failsafe way to focus attention on her forthcoming third LP, Fantasy Ride: The singer appears nude (albeit with parts of her body strategically covered) on the cover of the October issue of Vibe magazine.
And the revelations don't end there: The 22-year-old singer — who has been rumored to be romantically linked with 50 Cent — also talks about fame and her love life in the magazine, which hits newsstands on September 16.
More on Ciara, plus the controversial photo, after the jump.
