Welcome to the third installment of Diva Spotlight. My name is Mike Parker, the creator of the “TWV Divas” and “World’s Hottest Women” websites. When the owner of this site contacted me about opening it I was skeptical but willing to give my support. I also suggested a couple of names for future features. One of those names was Dana Hamm. A few weeks later they dropped the bomb on me. Would I be willing to come out of retirement to pen said feature? Given that there a few people in the industry I hold in as high esteem as Dana my answer was of course , a resounding “yes!” Having read the first two features on this site I’ll run it down in that format. So on that note, what is it that makes Dana stand out?
1-Saying that Dana is working model is an understatement. Dana is much more than that, she is one the few ICONS in the modeling industry. From magazines to digital to everything in between Dana has done it all and continues her unprecedented success after a decade and a half long career. Also notable is the fact Dana’s commitment to quality never wavers, you’ll never see in involved with a sub-par project!
2-More than just a model Dana is also a creator starting her own photography Iconic Beauty Images which not only produces top quality content for professionals but can even give your everyday person a professional photo shoot! These aren’t just any shoots either. While the standard bikini type shoots are available Dana’s company offers everything from historic “Route 66” shoots to even shoots with exotic animals. The imagery here is just off the charts, as you can see from the below samples.
3-Business minded. You’ll see a lot of women come and go in the modeling world. The reason? These ladies generally turn out to be pretty girls who don’t understand they are in a world of pretty girls, and while look is important it won’t take you (and keep you) on top. Realizing that modeling is a business and you need to treat it like one will.
4-Still understands the importance of her supporters. A while back Dana was presented with a fabulous opportunity that would have seen here go “off the grid” for a bit. I know this because she actually posted it on her social media asking her supporters if she should do it since it meant she would be gone for awhile. Proving even her fan base was above average the consensus was “go for it”.
5-Loyalty. Here’s where my personal experience comes in. Dana and I pretty much started the same year and within a few years she was working me with me not only appearing on my Divas website but giving me other models to feature as well. She also appeared on my WHW website. A lot of models only care about today’s hottest thing is. Going back to some of my other points Dana much smarter than that. She knows if the person themselves is of a high caliber , any project they work on will likely be too.

First, everyone here at the Diva Spotlight team would like to apologize for the delay in getting a new feature up. While our first two choices were easy, picking Spotlight #3 was not so easy. With that said, we have big news to share. Not only to do we have no less than an icon in the modeling industry for you next week, we have even gotten someone special to write it. Again, we apologize for the wait but promise you it will be worth it!
The second ever Diva Spotlight here! After our first feature you had to wonder how we would follow up. It was actually an easy choice. This time we present the amazing Analicia Chaves also known as Ana Montana. By any name she is a perfect 10! But as is the theme here it’s more than her incredible looks that make her stand out.
#1: This girl is REAL AF! Heard it before? There’s a reason for that, it counts a lot with us! While she has no problem calling out those who, quite frankly deserve it, she also has no problem accommodating those who may want to say hi, take a picture or talk to her. She is confident (deservedly so, and one needs an abundance to succeed as a top model) but not arrogant.
#2: Multi-Dimensional. While there are the usual snapchats of Ana and friends out an about (and there’s nothing wrong with that) Ana has also participated and help organize family-friendly events.
#3: Working model. At the risk of beating a dead horse, while she takes a mean selfie, she does pro shoots which is more for fans to enjoy and generally means she’ll be around for years to come. It also means she her takes career and the modeling profession seriously. While we all love admiring the end product without dedicated models (and other industry professionals such as photographers) this world we love doesn’t continue without them. She has also appeared in a number of popular music videos.
#4: The obvious. If we could “weird science” a girl (look it up it kids) she would pretty much look like Ana. From top to bottom this girl’s look and body are ON POINT.
#5: Accessibility: Ana frequently updates her snapchat with everything from pro shoots to workouts to just hanging out and pretty much everything in between. This in addition to the usual other social media platforms such as Twitter and Instagram. If you are a follower/admirer of Ana’s you can’t complain about a lack of updates and/or content. For those wanting something on a more personal level, Ana makes herself available on services like chatstar. While some would complain about paying to use those services, we think it’s a great option to give to fans who want to participate. It’s also a bit old school (which we love) as back when we started following the modeling scene there were services like Keen and InfoRocket. Those of us who were around and used these services were able to get to know those we previously only knew online on a more personal level and in a way that isn’t possible even with social media today.
