BEVERLY HILLS (WWJ) – A local model is one step closer to becoming a social media celebrity.

Twenty-four-year-old Denice Wimbush was named one of Maxim Magazine’s “Hottest Women of Instagram” after a contest that drew about 20,000 submissions.

“I was so surprised that they picked my picture because there are so many it’s impossible to even look through all the pictures,” said Wimbush. “I’m definitely proud of it – it’s really exciting.”

Wimbush found out she made the cut from a comment on one of her photos.

The distinction, published in Maxim’s March issue, has nearly doubled Wimbush’s following on the photo-sharing site.

But the Beverly Hills resident is no stranger to the spot light– Wimbush was first runner up in last year’s Miss Michigan pageant and most recently represented Maserati at the North American International Auto Show.
