A few weeks ago we ran an epic competition to identify the most alluring investment bankers in the entire world. This was judged by 24 year old Xenia Tchoumitcheva, ex-J.P. Morgan intern and the founder and owner of luxury blog www.Chicoverdose.com. The results to this competition are now widely known: Christian Eliades, head of trading at London-based Met Traders came out on top, with 562 votes; poor Fabrice Tourre was only supported by eight people.
Many of the sexy banking nominees on our original list were, however, given an unfair advantage by virtue of their extreme seniority and consequent large wallets. We therefore invited nominations of lesser known sexy male bankers for a second round. Those nominations are now in. The nominees are listed below, along with Xenia's comments. Please add your vote at the bottom of the page. Coming in first place can be a life-altering experience. "I've never had so many requests to connect on LinkedIn," Christian Eliades told us this morning.

2. John Platts Mills
