Let's face it, "Mad Men" wouldn't be "Mad Men" without the sexy women of the show striking poses like this and driving the men, well, mad.
The popular AMC drama returns for season 6 this Sunday, so to celebrate we have named the 12 hottest women to appear on the show. Click ahead for the countdown to #1.
No. 11 - Darby Stanchfield
Plays Helen Bishop, neighborhood single mother, divorcee and frenemy of Betty.
She's Glen's mom, the boy who Sally likes and who Betty gave a lock of her hair to once while babysitting him. When Helen confronted Betty about that in the grocery store, she got a nice slap in the face for it.
No. 10 - Cara Buono
Plays Dr. Faye Miller, a consumer researcher.
She starts working for Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce, and — surprise, surprise — shortly thereafter, develops a relationship with Don. Faye actually ends up quitting her job so she and Don can be together in the open, but on his trip to California, he proposes to Megan. She leaves Don with an ominous warning that she hopes Megan understands that Don Draper "only likes the beginning of things."
No. 8 - Alexis Bledel
Plays Beth Dawes, wife of insurance salesman Howard Dawes.
Unlike most of the ladies on this list, she does not have an affair with Don Draper, but rather Pete Campbell. She wants to forget that it happened afterward, but that doesn't sit well with Pete, who continues to pursue her but gets rejected. Later on he meets her and finds out she is depressed and beginning electroshock therapy. Pete no longer seems to yearn for her after that.
Fun fact: Alexis Bledel recently got engaged to Vincent Kartheiser of "Mad Men," the actor who plays Pete Campbell.
No. 7 - Caity Lotz
Plays Anna Draper's niece, Stephanie.
She is the niece of perhaps the one person in the world who Don truly loves, but that still didn't stop him from hitting on her. Stephanie fights it off, though, and informs Don that Anna is dying of cancer. Stephanie later calls and tells him that Anna has passed away.
No. 5 - Peyton List
Plays Jane Sterling, Roger Sterling's most recent ex-wife.
She was briefly Don's secretary, but that ended quickly when she broke up Roger's marriage and ended up marrying him. But, as their relationship became rockier, all it took was an LSD trip together to decide that they should get divorced, too.
No. 4 - January Jones
Plays Betty Francis, formerly Betty Draper.
She is married to Henry Francis, a man maneuvering around in the political world. She is Don's ex-wife and consistent thorn in his side, and she also got fat in season 5 (although that is not why we have her at #4 on this list).
No. 2 - Jessica Paré
Plays Megan Draper, Don Draper's wife.
She was the front desk receptionist, but quickly warmed up Don Draper's cold heart and became his hot young wife. Rather than describe why she is #2 on this list, just watch this:

No. 1 - Christina Hendricks
Plays Joan Harris, former office manager and current junior partner at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce.
There can only be one, and Joan has always been the #1 woman in the "Mad Men" world. She is not without her faults or troubles, but she always seems to keep it together and come out on top. We expect that to continue.
