Before you break bread with the family this Thanksgiving, you better have a legitimate reason to be thankful. This shows that you're a good human, and from our estimate, worth roughly half the value of the first plate of food you're about to consume. There are scores of terrible happenings in the world, and sometimes it's nice to take pleasure in the simple things. For us, nothing compares to that of a gorgeous woman. Specifically, a sexy documentation of said vixen that can be savored for time to come. 

Luckily for everyone, there's been an abundance of that going around this year. We're talking world-class photos of Rihanna, Kate Upton, Zoe Saldana & Miranda Kerr, captured by the likes of Mario Sorrenti, Mario Testino, Karl Lagerfeld, Ellen von Unwerth, and more. We're not suggesting these are the only reasons to be grateful, but hell, they aren't too deficient either.
