If you follow Claire Sinclair on Twitter, you will find such bons mots as "The new Sex and the City movie should be called Abstinence in the Wilderness." And if you talk to the alabaster-skinned 19-year-old, you will discover she is a whirling dervish who worships Stevie Nicks, counts Pink Flamingos among her favorite movies and checks out 10 books from the library at a time. "I like all things vintage, and I devour information," Claire says in a voice that summons the throaty tones of Scarlett Johansson. (Her face and figure echo her idol Bettie Page, one of the greatest pinups of all time.) A year ago Claire – then a burgeoning lingerie model known as Clairissa Irene – began trailblazing her own pinup path when she accompanied her father on a trip to the home of painter Olivia De Berardinis, a monthly Playboy contributor. "My dad is a huge Olivia fan, so our house has been decked out with her paintings my whole life," says Claire. "Personally, I've wanted to be painted by her for as long as I can remember, so when I went to her house, I dressed exactly like a pinup." Her charming subterfuge worked to perfection; the next day Olivia asked if Claire would model for her. Soon thereafter they cooked up the modeling moniker Claire Sinclair. "It's a name you're going to remember!" Claire explains. Not long after that, she was testing to be a Playmate – another dream-come-true moment. "Playmates are quintessential works of art," she says. "I couldn't be more honored."
