Kim Kardashian celebrates making Maxim's Hot 100 top ten in a revealing dress that shows how she won her place

Kim Kardashian may have missed out on the top spot of the Maxim magazine Hot 100 list, but it looks like she has already started gunning for a higher position next year.

The socialite made No.9 in the annual list compiled by the American edition of the men's magazine, which was topped by singer Katy Perry.

So stepping out in Hollywood last night, the reality TV star showed why she was deserving of her place in the top 10 as she flaunted her famous curves in a bondage-style little black dress.

The 29-year-old star started her evening off at the live broadcast of Dancing With The Stars, where she reunited with dancer Mark Ballas, who partnered her during the 2008 series.

After watching Nicole Scherzinger and her fellow celebrities perform their routines, Kardashian, her mother Kris Jenner and Pussycat Dolls founder Robin Antin joined DWTS contestant, Olympian ice skater Evan Lysacek, professional dancer Cheryl Burke and fashion designer Vera Wang for dinner.

As the large crowd feasted on their late-night dinner at sushi restaurant Katsuya, Kardashian updated her Twitter page.

Equally enthusiastic about their night out on Twitter was choreographer Antin, who has been supporting Scherzinger as she takes part in the U.S. TV talent show.

Antin wrote: 'Such a beautiful night.'

Antin has been friends with Kardashian for several years and choreographed the socialite's raunchy performance with The Pussycat Dolls dance troupe in Las Vegas two years ago.

Kardashian's struggle to rehearse the routine was well-documented in an episode of her reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

Coincidentally, Kardashian's famous friend Eva Longoria also dined at Katsuya last night, but the pair appeared to miss each other.

While Kardashian was dressed to the nines for her meal, the Desperate Housewives star was relatively casual in comparison in a pair of skinny jeans, black boyfriend blazer and thick-rimmed glasses.

Longoria was enjoying a last meal in LA before she heads to the Cannes Film Festival, which kicks off on Wednesday.

Last year, the actress spent two months jet-setting around Europe, including a stint at the Cannes Film Festival, for her epic holiday.

Meanwhile, top of the Maxim list, Perry wasn't looking so 'hot' as she went to the gym yesterday.

The I Kissed A Girl singer looked far from her usual sexy persona as she wore a baggy T-shirt and leggings for a work out in Los Angeles.

Russell Brand's fiancée saw off tough competition to top the annual Maxim list, including swimsuit model Brooklyn Decker and Megan Fox.
