About Dominique Jane
Dominique Jane is Playboy’s Miss August 2015. The first redheaded Playmate of 2015 grew up in Southern California. Both of her parents were born and raised in Dublin, Ireland (where Dominique has dual citizenship) and moved to the United States to pursue careers in advertising. Dominique earned a degree in fashion marketing and began working in Los Angeles. After living in LA for a while, she discovered that her true calling was in modeling and acting and decided to change careers.
Dominique found early success in her new career after being chosen by supermodel Janice Dickinson to appear on her Oxygen reality show, Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency. After her TV appearances, she began working with a number of well-known photographers such as Terry Richardson, Greg Gorman and Matthew Rolston.
Besides modeling, Dominique also worked her way into the acting world. After appearing on Dickinson’s show, she earned roles in a couple feature films, including The Road Home, co-starring with Lily Tomlin. She also found herself involved in Kanye West’s hugely successful Yeezus tour. A friend recommended to her, and she even earned the blessing of Yeezy. “Supposedly, Kanye himself selected me from a group,” says Dominique. “That tour was very religious, with the idea that you can be the greatest power in your own life. The opportunities the universe throws at me always seem to have greater meaning.”
Music is an important part of Dominique’s life. She loves rocking band t-shirts over fancy designer clothes. “I like connecting with people and culture,” she says. The War on Drugs, Tom Petty and Florence Welch (another redhead) are some of her favorite acts.
Dominique wanted to be a Playmate since she was in her teens. She would visit tanning salons and put a Playboy logo sticker on her body so the Rabbit Head would be visible on her body. “I’d always tell friends, ‘One day…,’” says Dominique. Well, mission accomplished.
She is also somewhat of a free spirit. She tells Playboy, “I live like a gypsy. I always have my bags packed for the next adventure. I hope you’ll join me.”
Becoming Playmate of the Year in 2015 was just another step in a rollercoaster ride for Dominique. She says, “Not too long ago, if you told me I was going to be in Playboy or onstage with Kanye, I would have said you’re crazy.” Who knows what’s next in her incredible life.
