Brazilian Playmate Alana Campos first graced the pages of Playboy as Miss September 2012. She follows in the footsteps of former Brazilian Playmates Sasycka Porto and identical twins Deisy and Sarah Teles. Even though Campos has been modeling since she was 15 and is represented by Ford Models and Wilhelmina Models, she never dreamed of posing in front of the camera. Campos originally wanted to become an airline stewardess so she could travel the world. She has traveled the world as a Playmate and as an international model, so it looks like she got her wish.
Campos has won several notable pageants, and even made it to the top five at Miss Brazil USA. Her passion for modeling has landed her in several magazines and fashion campaigns including Sachika, Bonny Bridal, MK Colab, Bl!ss Magazine and Arizona Foothills Magazine. And of course, this Brazilian loves supporting the beautiful game of soccer. The September 2012 Playmate is a spokesmodel for her favorite club Avai and was voted the official Musa Do Catarinense in its sponsored competition in 2009.
This Brazilian beauty’s successful modeling career has led her to notable appearances in Hollywood TV and film. In 2013 she appeared in the hit film Last Vegas aside big name costars like Danny DeVito, Morgan Freeman, Kevin Kline and Michael Douglas. Campos also appeared in the 2014 TV miniseries Interns.
Playboy first saw the future Playmate when she sent in her portfolio on a whim. Campos wanted “just to see what would happen,” not expecting to get a response. But within three months Hugh Hefner decided to make her Miss September 2012. Campos couldn’t have been happier, even though she had never shot nude before her debut in Playboy. “I’d never even taken my top off at the beach,” she said. “But I love being a Playmate.”
Growing up in the beautiful city of Florianopolis, Campos was constantly surrounded by dolphins and surfers. The town is located in the picturesque Santa Catarina, on the southern coast of Brazil, with the nickname “the island of magic.” According to Campos, the town is filled with 42 beaches and has a ton of beautiful women. “You’re completely surrounded by the ocean. Plus everybody is always smiling. I try to take that happy energy with me wherever I go,” she told Playboy. She regularly makes her way back to her Brazilian hometown from her home in Los Angeles and has traveled to Hong Kong, Ibiza and Paris.
