The Sexiest Man Alive 1997
The Eyes Have It. So Do the Smile and the Biceps. A Heartthrob Is More Than the Sum of His Parts, and Who's Most Magnetic This Year Is No Puzzle at All
In addition to a detailed report on our cover subject, you'll find a dazzling gallery of achievers chosen by PEOPLE as the sexiest in their fields. We also identify the best celebrity boyfriends, ask a panel of screen sirens to tell us what they look for in a man and coax other stars into revealing their own, often surprising, candidates for Sexiest Man.
So enjoy this smorgasbord of stunners. Dreams don't come packaged more delightfully.
