  • FEATURED IN THE HILL: Catherine Wilkins of Little Rock.
A break from hardcore politics.

The Hill does a periodic survey of the 50 Most Beautiful people in Washington, both men and women, from members of Congress to staff. Sen. Jeff Flake is No. 1 this year.

A Little Rock native made the list at 50 — Catherine Wilkins, who works on the staff of Republican U.S. Rep. Tom Cotton.

So what does this bubbly brunette, a self-proclaimed perfectionist and “girly girl” do for fun? Dancing and shopping are high on the list.

And, as it turns out, her Southern roots have impressed upon her not only a penchant for country music, but also, a love of the outdoors. Along with hiking and tubing, she enjoys a day out on the lake.

As for staying fit, Wilkins says portion control is important, but shouldn’t stop a person from eating what they want, as is indicated by her preferred meal and snack: cheeseburgers and sour gummy candy, respectively.
