LOS ANGELES – She’s responsible for the careers of a gaggle of gorgeous gals from Joanna Krupa to GUESS girl Julia Lescova, but now its model manager Nadja Atwal’s turn in the spotlight, as we can exclusively reveal Atwal has been named Viva Glam Magazine’s “Sexiest Power Woman of All Time.”
Not a bad title, eh?
“I was looking at Ivanka Trump, Heidi Klum, Marissa Mayer, Sarah Palin, Hind Hairi and few others. But none of them have come even close to Nadja,” editor Katarina Van Derham told FOX411 Pop Tarts column. “When Nadja walks into a room, everyone notices her. Both, men and women. She exudes confidence, mystery, power, sex appeal, and you immediately want to know who she is.”

- Viva Glam editor Katarina Van Derham
The German-born glamazon, who got married last year and gave birth to her first child, says being a female power player nowadays doesn’t mean shunning family life, which is one reason son Alexus was part of the Viva Glam cover shoot.
“The editor right away loved the idea of involving my son, since happiness is the top power source, and my son is undoubtedly my endless source of happiness,” Atwal said. “Yes, I am a happy business woman, but an even happier wife and mother.”
And while she is both a new wife and mom, Atwal stresses that is never a reason for any woman to check her sex appeal at the door.
“No matter if married or not, mother or not, most women want to feel good about the way they look, and a healthy dose of vanity is a good thing. Plus after pregnancy you really feel like celebrating your body when it remotely looks like how you remembered it,” she laughed. “Key to me though is feeling healthy and comfortable in my skin.”
Viva Glam prides itself on steering clear of the size-zero high fashion models and embracing curvy, glamorous women on its pages, a look Atwal has tirelessly fought for throughout her career. And while she has the magic touch to transform curvy cuties into sought-after supermodels, for Atwal, that's just the tip of the iceberg
“Creating and increasing stardom for those who think they can handle it – actors, models, television hosts, and reality stars – is just one aspect of my career,” she said. “I develop television shows and produce movies, design clothes for several top fashion labels and am giving my take on style, skin care, relationships and motherhood.”
Spoken like a sexy power woman, indeed.
