Hannah Davis was born on May 5 1990 in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands. The Victoria’s Secret model was still a teenager when she was discovered there by model scout Ginny Edwards. By 2006, Davis was modeling for Ralph Lauren and appearing on the cover of D, the fashion magazine of the Italian newspaper la Repubblica. Making the most of her deep-set blue-green eyes and honey-colored hair, she has since appeared in ads for Victoria’s Secret, Blush Lingerie, American Eagle, Tommy Hilfiger and Levi’s Jeans. She made the tabloids in 2012 when she began dating NY Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter. In 2013 she became much more famous as the eye-catching Direct TV “genie,” who appeared in TV ads briefly (and briefly-clad) to cast sultry looks at the camera before snapping her fingers and disappearing. The ads were shown in heavy rotation on NFL football broadcasts, making her a fast favorite with sports fans and lad mags. That same year she appeared in the annual Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. Kate Upton was the cover model, but a small photo of Davis was in the upper-right corner with the words “We’ve Got Hannah Davis… The Dreamy Rookie.”
Davis is interested in clothing and jewelry design and production. She has played tennis since she was eight years old and was a champion on the Caribbean National tennis team and played on the Caribbean Tennis Circuit.
