Best-Looking Cocktail Server

Karla Luna



While “hottest” is as subjective as it comes, Hakkasan’s Karla Luna gets the nod for having a unique look and story. When the Guadalajara native moved to California and then Utah with her mom, neither spoke much English. A dark-skinned Catholic tomboy in a city of light-skinned Mormons, her exotic natural beauty got her modeling jobs starting at age 15. After high school, she landed a culture-shocking cocktailing job (with no cocktailing experience). Now she’s at Hakkasan, where she is routinely photographed with celebrities. But she says she’ll eventually wind down her days as a bottle-service girl and model. “I was born to be a mother and wife—that’s the Mexican Utah girl in me—and that time is not too distant.” Sorry, guys.
