Every week in our Worldwide Wednesday post, Complex pays tribute to the cornucopia of women from around the globe. We try our best to represent all nationalities and ethnicities, but there's one crucial group of women we haven't focused on yet that everyone can agree on: multiracial women. Globalization never looked so good!

See, in the future, everyone will be multiracial. But for now, we'll have to appreciate these pioneering dimes, who all have ancestors from multiple continents. Since one of our favorite chicks Cassie—who is African-American, Mexican, West Indian and Filipino—turns 23 today, we thought it would be a fitting time to pay tribute to this often-overlooked sub-set of sexy. Throw on your pro-miscegenation t-shirts, pull up a chair and enjoy our picks for The 10 Hottest Multiracial Women...

#10: ESTHER BAXTER
ETHNICITY: African-American, Norwegian, Puerto Rican, Cuban and Indian.
CLAIM TO FAME: The green eyed video model shot to fame after her feature in Petey Pablo's "Freek-A-Leek" video back in 2004. She was also featured in Ludacris's "Number One Spot," Nelly's "Shake Ya Tailfeather" and Kanye West's "The New Workout Plan." Then all of a sudden she decided to get all serious on us and retired in 2007 at the age of 22 to attend college and (we assume) prepare for her recent Complex 7 Interview.
