English term or phrase: the toop of the heap
Naughty, nice or somewhere in between, the rankings of the top 1,000 glamour queens in Sullivan's book can be very strange: He complied the genesis of the list by surveying some 1,3000 pinup collectors, encompassing 23 countries. As always, the toop of the heap is obvious to everyone, namely Marilyn Monroe: "She was the goddess of all goddesses."

Explanation:
Rafael, como sabes pocos refranes/dichos pueden/deben traducirse literalmente. En este caso, solo puedo sugerirte las siguientes opciones:
- la que esta en la cima
- la que esta en el tope
- la que ocupa el primer lugar
- la que sobresale por encima de todas

la mera mera


Explanation:
Otra posibilidad, si se puede adaptar la expresión *el mero mero* al feminino, sería: "la mera mera". Y concuerdo con el colega "leomar" que "toop" no es nada más que un error tipográfico para "top".

lo màs alto


Explanation:
In english, "toop of the heap" should really be "top of the heap". The translation means the highest, or most important of all. (It literally means "the highest (of all the things that are being considered)")
