Hot implies sexually desireable.
Cute implies somewhat adorable, often youthful and/or small.
Most cute women are somewhat hot, because most guys find attractive youthful naive girls sexually desirable. Not exclusively them, but yes to them. Someone could be out of the age range you find sexually desirable and still seem 'cute'.
Some women are both very cute and very hot. Some are much more one then the other.
In this particular picture, wouldn't call her 'cute', would call her 'hot'.
"hot without being cute' is more common i guess with older women who look elegant, seductive, and very much aware of what they're doing. Lena Olin seducing johnny depp in the ninth gate comes to mind:
I mean she's almost a decade older than him. But nobody was thinking 'why is he fooling around with her?' And it's not that she looked younger than her age. She just still looked hoooot.1

@squidward is cute
@rthomas43 is hot
Basically. I also realize this won't work if mr squid doesn't have a picture up anymore, I forgot to check ahead of time.
Regardless. Both are attractive but one makes you want to cuddle up with them and the other makes you want to do not so nice things.
Sometimes cute is better than hot, it depends on the day.1
