50 Most Beautiful Atlantans 2019

By Jordan Hill & Ashton Pike | November 11, 2019 | People

We’re back, baby! This year’s lineup of JEZEBEL’s 50 Most Beautiful Atlantans is one for the books, with a bevy of babes and total studs—each with a heart of gold to boot. When these drop-dead gorgeous do-gooders aren’t at the hottest rooftop, most exclusive afterparty or toasting this issue of JEZ Nov. 14 at Big Sky Buckhead (hint, hint), they’re giving their time to ATL’s nonprofits and beyond.

50 Most Beautiful Atlantans: 2020 | 2018 | 2017 | 2016 | 2015 | 2014


Cam Schott
Artist; model, Ursula Wiedmann Models

Age: 25 Insta: @cam_schott Originally from: Atlanta Lives in: Roswell Relationship status: In a relationship
This blond bombshell knows what it’s like to be both the artist and the muse. “I love that everything both jobs entail is so creative,” she says about her roles in front of the camera and behind the easel. Despite her busy schedule, she still finds time to volunteer at 7 Bridges to Recovery, which helps Atlanta’s homeless population rebuild their lives. “It’s a life-changing experience, and every single person that works there has carved a place into my heart,” she says.

Hannah Poppell
Freelance marketing specialist; makeup artist

Age: 27 Insta: @hpoppell Originally from: Tallahassee, Fla. Lives in: Midtown Relationship status: Single

This babe is passionate about helping other women feel confident and beautiful in their own skin through her job as a makeup artist (check out @makeupbyhayandhan for all the inspo), but the gal with a master’s from SCAD also has a tomboy side, with a love for deep-sea fishing with her dad and anything outdoors. At the top of her bucket list? A visit to Iceland to see the northern lights.


Alayna Tolbert
Event sales manager, Live! at The Battery Atlanta

Age: 24 Insta: @laynaatolbert Originally from: Hiram Lives in: Smyrna Relationship status: In a relationship
When she’s not catching a live music show, traveling or playing with her two goldendoodles, you’ll find this hottie—whose worked with both St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and Special Olympics-—hangin’ on the BeltLine or at The Battery Atlanta, most likely with a Captain and Coke or tequila shot in hand. While she loves to have fun, she’s also extremely driven. Her biggest accomplishment? “I was the first person in my family to graduate from college,” says the University of West Georgia alum.

Mesha Young
Costing analyst, Cargill

Age: 26 Insta: @legallybombshell Originally from: Gainesville Lives in: Alpharetta Relationship status: Single
“I’m an accountant by day and a pageant girl by night,” says this Georgia State University grad who won both Miss Congeniality and Miss Community Service at the Miss Black Georgia USA pageant. The beauty queen uses her knowledge of numbers to help educate local youth through her involvement with Junior Achievement, which supports financial literacy programs in schools. “I love pouring my heart out into the community and serving people without expecting anything in return,” she says. Her passion for the project led her to raise $1,800 for the program, which Young says is her biggest achievement.

Matteo Valles
Co-founder, Grove VR

Age: 26 Insta: @matteovalles Originally from: Atlanta Lives in: West Midtown Relationship status: Single
You might recognize this stud from Hannah Brown’s season of The Bachelorette. Though he didn’t win over her heart, he sure won over ours! With his beauty comes brains and a good heart to boot: His virtual reality biz, Grove VR (co-founded with his younger brother), aims to help Atlantans and beyond “to create, find and join support groups—groups for topics like alcoholism, depression, loss of a loved one, etc.,” says the Georgia Tech grad. “As one person, you can only impact so many people in a given day. But by creating a platform that allows people to help themselves and others, my impact can go much further beyond myself.”

Daniela Londono
Owner, KARMA Boutique

Age: 30 Insta: @danylond Originally from: Medellín, Colombia Lives in: Buckhead Relationship status: In a relationship
Between owning her own fashion boutique and winning the Miss Georgia Earth pageant, this international beauty keeps a busy schedule. Still, the ATL transplant finds time to work with Athena Farms to help the city’s restaurants source organic food products from local farms. “In doing so, we decrease global warming and help the environment,” she says. The Colombia-born Beautiful is also passionate about using her small business to give back to her home: “My business is focused on fair trade, and I love supporting the communities from my country,” she says. She loves to use fashion as a way to encourage other women.

Alexandria Brizzi
Engagement manager, Sagepath

Age: 26 Insta: @abrizzi Originally from: Westminster, Md. Lives in: Roswell Relationship status: In a relationship
This Olivia Culpo look-alike has the entire package: She can cook and paint, and is fluent in Italian. While she loves to travel the world (she dreams of living abroad one day), she’s just as happy staying in bed with a bowl of popcorn to watch The Office or any other bingeworthy release. “If I’m surrounded by people I love, I’m having a good time no matter what,” says the brunette beauty. Her favorite city spots include The Regent Cocktail Club, Himitsu, CorePower Yoga and anywhere on the BeltLine, but a Moscow Mule from Umi is truly the key to her heart.

Shelby Gruber
Technology senior talent acquisition specialist, The Home Depot Corporate

Age: 27 Insta: @shelbyvictoria3 Originally from: Rochester, N.Y. Lives in: Buckhead Relationship status: In a relationship
Gruber is a former NFL cheerleader, which might explain why encouraging others to reach their goals comes so naturally to the talent acquisition specialist. “There’s no better feeling than being able to help an individual get the promotion they’ve been looking for, reach their career goals and better their family’s lives,” says the University of Buffalo graduate. The bombshell stays motivated herself, hitting up Team Fitness Athletics for her killer physique.

Amirah Amy Rastam
Professional risk association underwriter, Chubb

Age: 23 Insta: @rastames Originally from: Pennsylvania Lives in: Brookhaven Relationship status: In a relationship
Petite, passionate and positive are just a few words that describe this Beautiful, who has a soft spot for helping others. When she’s not at Ladybird Grove & Mess Hall, New Realm Brewing and The Southern Gentleman, you’ll find her volunteering at Love Is a Verb Collective: Clarkston Outreach, which provides supplies and community to over 26,000 refugees in the Clarkston area. When it comes to style, the Brenda Song doppelgänger admits her affinity for outdated fashion: “lots of flowy and floral outfits,” she says.


Corinne Vipond
Executive assistant and event coordinator, ACG Wealth; bartender, Chops Lobster Bar

Age: 28 Insta: @corinnevipond Originally from: Marietta Lives in: Buckhead Relationship status: Single
It’s the simple things, like a full-bodied red and Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, that keep this bubbly beauty happy. Hiking, boating and hanging out with friends top her list of favorite activities. The Kennesaw State grad—who has volunteered with the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Atlanta—admits that she prefers downtime in the form of a Schitt’s Creek marathon, and live music when a night on the town is on her mind.

Chukwukere Ekeh
Vice president marketing manager, Renasant Bank; model, Wilhelmina Models

Age: 26 Insta: @qualityekeh Originally from: Little Rock, Ark. Lives in: Sandy Springs Relationship status: Single
For this tall, dark and oh-so-handsome gentleman, giving back is a no-brainer—which is why you can find the ATL transplant at Buckhead Church volunteering with the middle school ministry on Sundays, and cheering on his hometown team (Go, Razorbacks!) on Saturdays. The BeltLine regular can be seen rooftop-hopping; at the best live music venue; or at Chick-fil-A, where the waffle fries are his guilty pleasure.

Michael Shea
Technical sales laser imaging engineer, FARO Technologies

Age: 36 Insta: @msheabutta Originally from: Tulsa, Okla. Lives in: Virginia-Highland Relationship status: Single
When this dapper do-gooder isn’t volunteering his time with Atlanta-based nonprofit Bert’s Big Adventure, he’s front-row at Terminal West for the latest must-see concert or at home creating 3D-printed metal art. His proudest achievement? His circle of friends, he says. Cue the awes.


Vishal Khana
Director of operations, New Acquisitions

Age: 26 Insta: @vishal_khana Originally from: Durham, N.C. Lives in: The Battery Atlanta Relationship status: In a relationship
Meet this University of Georgia graduate whose ideal day is spent in his backyard—The Battery, that is. “Walking downstairs on a Braves game day doesn’t get any better; there’s just a buzz in the air,” he says. Fun fact: The sports enthusiast comes from a family of 10 (yes, you read that correctly). The foodie can be found taste-testing ATL’s new restos, with his GF bingewatching The Office, or posted up at happy hour ordering a Dark and Stormy.

Dana Merritt
Outside sales representative, ABC Supply Co.

Age: 26 Insta: @dana_jade Originally from: Houston Lives in: OTP Relationship status: In a relationship
If you’re looking for your next best friend, look no further than this Texas-born Beautiful who’s always down for doughnuts and says her favorite place is “wherever the bottomless mimosas take me.” Besides having a killer playlist and great taste in movies (Dirty Dancing is her favorite!), she also has a contagious smile, which earned her favorite compliment to date: “My friend and photographer once told me that he loved my deep smile lines because it means that a person is happy,” she says.

Mike McCann
Head coach, Orangetheory Fitness Chastain Park

Age: 31 Insta: @coachmike_otf Originally from: Charlottesville, Va. Lives in: Buckhead Relationship status: Single

The best compliment this stud has ever received is that he has “the heart of a golden retriever”—and we have to agree it’s the truth. From coaching at Orangetheory Fitness’s Chastain Park studio (he has a master’s degree in exercise science from Florida Atlantic University), where he helps Atlantans build their confidence, to giving back to organizations such as the Rally Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research and Augie’s Quest, the Red Pepper Taqueria regular knows the importance of paying it forward.

Co-founder and host, Tenderfoot TV

Age: 31 Insta: @paynelindsey Originally from: Kennesaw Lives in: Old Fourth Ward
While this hometown hero—his work helped crack a decade-old cold case—is certainly easy on the eyes, he’s most well known for his voice. Chances are you’ve heard it through your AirPods narrating the wildly popular podcasts Up and Vanished or Atlanta Monster. The stud co-founded Tenderfoot TV, which creates content out of Ponce City Market, but he is also a talented filmmaker. It was his desire to film a documentary about the infamous Tara Grinstead case that led to his first dip into the podcast pond.

This fella with a love of fitness (catch him at local studios like Barry’s Bootcamp, Highland Yoga and CrossFit Terminus) also has an affinity for altruism, which is why The Next Stop Foundation—a Georgia-based nonprofit for mentally disabled teens and adults—holds an even more special place in his heart. When he’s not giving his time to others, you can spot him outdoors, from the BeltLine to Fetch Park in Old Fourth Ward.

Saleka Kabir
Makeup artist

Age: 23 Insta: @saalekaa Originally from: Islamabad Lives in: Acworth Relationship status: Single
While she’s certainly stunning, this lady’s exterior is a small part of what makes her one of JEZ’s 50 Most Beautiful Atlantans. The makeup artist is currently in school to gain a master’s in clinical mental health counseling, which she plans to use to help end the stigmas associated with mental illnesses. The beauty influencer—she has an impressive 47K-plus followers on Instagram—already uses her platform to empower women to feel beautiful both inside and out.

Gina Son
Creative director and director of operations, Havana Club ATL; creative director, Figurati Fashion

Age: 26 Insta: @ginason Originally from: Columbus, Ohio Lives in: Buckhead Relationship status: Single
With her rockin’ bod and sultry stare, this beauty is a total knockout.

Between this Chicago-born fitness trainer’s happy-go-lucky demeanor and seriously good looks, it’s no surprise he’s one of JEZ’s 2019 Most Beautiful Atlantans. When the Georgia State University grad isn’t pumping up ATLiens during a workout at Solcioty Fitness in Buckhead (you’d never guess his biggest fear used to be public speaking), he’s posted up at New Realm Brewing with friends or relaxing at home watching Netflix’s Peaky Blinders with his lucky GF—sorry, ladies.

Trin Karnjanakul
Marketing manager, Waldorf Astoria Atlanta Buckhead

Age: 31 Insta: @trin154 Originally from: Bangkok Lives in: Buckhead Relationship status: Single
Though this dapper marketing manager hails from Thailand, he’s found a home in ATL—especially the dining scene since he’s a culinary king with a love of cooking. “I have little knowledge about sports, but I can tell you all about food,” he jokes. Next to food, a special place in his heart is held by Meals on Wheels, for which he helps connect the nonprofit with businesses. As for the No. 1 thing on his bucket list? “A family of my own—a husband and a furry pup would be right up the list.”

The 25-year-old firefighter and EMT says, “The thing I love most about my job is being able to help people at some of their lowest points in life.” During his days off, this Channing Tatum look-alike loves anything outdoors—especially the BeltLine—or hitting the gym to listen to his go-to hip-hop playlist.

Bartender, Tongue & Groove

Age: 27 Insta: @al1jay Originally from: Carrollton Lives in: Brookhaven Relationship status: In a relationship
