Often overlooked is the rich entertainment culture in the DMV area, an abbreviation for Washington, DC, Maryland, and Virginia. Washington, DC borders each state, which also border each other. Many write Washington, DC off as a political town, while Baltimore, Richmond, Annapolis, and the other cities of Maryland and Virginia are simply overlooked. The truth of the matter is, there is a lot of talent here.
Those who do not know soon will, due to the efforts of Miss DMV. Appearing in numerous music videos, Miss DMV has been making her presence known over the past five years. During this time period, Miss DMV amassed quite the fan base. There are several models from the DMV area making moves and Miss DMV is up there among the leaders.
