Hannah Widmer @hannah.r.widmer an American model, based in Chicago is recognized for her classic Hollywood beauty and aesthetic that is presented not only in her modeling, but also in her life. She has graced the cover of national and international fashion magazines, some of which include Glamour, InStyle Moldova, Marie Claire, Women’s Fitness, Maxim, Maxim Australia & New Zealand’s Official Calendar, L’Officiel, Harper’s Bazaar, Grazia, and many more.  In 2022, she was named “One of the most beautiful women on the planet” by Maxim Magazine. In 2023, she landed on a billboard in Times Square modeling Holden Metalsmithing Company out of Chicago. And in 2024, she will grace the cover of Maxim Australia’s coveted Calendar. 

Hannah symbolizes a woman with nontraditional values and a strong belief in independence. She believes in the value of being authentic and honoring your true self. Being honest and true to yourself is what you owe most to yourself. Her motto that she stands by is “Don’t turn me into something I’m not, I am who I am”. Hannah is not currently in love, and she is content with that. She’s experienced love, loss, and everything in between which led her to the understanding that love comes and goes, and that’s okay.

Other than being a model, Hannah @hannah.r.widmer also maintains two unique hobbies. The first is Saddle seat. Saddle seat is a style of horse riding within the category of English riding that is designed to show off the high action of certain horse breeds. She has competed in the World Championship Horse Show a number of times, with her beloved Aussie and True Fortune. Last year, she was featured riding a horse in the magazine National Horseman. She was very grateful and thrilled about the opportunity as something like this does not come easily. Being a skilled equestrian has also helped Hannah stay in shape, build her muscles, and maintain her perfect posture and balance. 

Another major hobby Hannah has that she is very passionate about is the arts. She spends much of her free time visiting art museums in the different cities she visits. She is an avid watercolor painter, a skilled stained-glass artist, a potter and also a sculptor. Hannah has a degree in Art Therapy and works in a facility fostering and healing those in need.  

Currently, she is finishing her studies in Elementary Education, as she would like to use her degree also working with children. 

Hannah is an accomplished individual; however, it wasn’t easy to get to a point where she is now. It took a lot of soul searching, self-love, and being comfortable in her own skin. In an interview, she said, “I feel sexier when I am my authentic self, and being who I am is crucial, otherwise you get lost.” 

Hannah’s most favorite quote is as follows:

“I do not at all understand the mystery of grace – 

only that it meets us where we are but does not leave us where it found us.”
