Recently engaged power couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt land at the No. 2 spot on Zimbio's fourth annual 100 Hottest Celebrity Couples list.

Brangelina sent us scrambling to check our math when they confirmed news they were planning to get hitched. They've been together for seven years and they're raising six kids together, so they already scored high in Staying Power. These two also remain the most-admired Hollywood power couple year after year, carving out time for worthwhile causes and masterfully avoiding overexposure.

All that and Angelina still rules the red carpet. Who could forget her Oscar dress this year? With Brad nominated for two awards, Angie ruled the Academy's pre-show in a dress with a slit up to there. We can't wait to see what she wears to the wedding! Assuming that ever happens.

For those curious about our process of ranking these couples, this year we've refined our definition of "hotness" to rank 100 celebrity couples using the following criteria: Staying Power, Popularity, Success, and Attractiveness. The resulting list includes hot pairings made up of models, singers, actors, ex-wrestlers, reality stars, and more. While the hottest couple of them all, Beyonce and Jay-Z, has been on our list for four years now, 24 of these famous duos also made their debut.
