Julie Lynn Cialini is Playboy’s Miss February 1994 and the Playmate of the Year 1995. She was born in Rochester, New York, and attended East Rochester High School. Surprisingly, Julie wasn’t among the popular in school. She told Playboy, “My high school was clannish. Either you were somebody or you were nobody. It brought me down, because I was never part of the crowd.” That did not stop Julie from succeeding as a model. “I started filling out after high school. I was so skinny back then,” she recalled.
Before claiming the title of Playmate, Julie’s first appearance in the magazine was as part of the photo shoot “Miami Heat: Where the Girls Are” in the September 1993 issue. She returned to participate in “The Great 40th Anniversary Playmate Search,” and in the following month she got her centerfold.
Julie has gone on to represent the Playmates in several game shows. In 1994 she briefly appeared as a model on The Price is Right. Later that year, Julie teamed up with her fellow centerfolds for the “Playmates vs. Hunks” episode of Family Feud. Partnered with Playmate of the Year 1990 Reneé Tenison, the two won the Fast Money round and donated to the Maple Center on behalf of the Playmates.
Julie was also among the participants in Fear Factor: Playboy Playmates Edition, pitting her against the Playmate sisterhood. She had notable roles on TV’s High Tide and Baywatch Nights, and also appeared in the comedy South Beach Academy and the horror film Wolfhound.
Julie was chosen as the spokesmodel for the 2011 International Motorsports Industry Show in Indianapolis. She is a big fan of NASCAR and can frequently be seen attending the races and cheering on her favorite racers.
Aside from the world of modeling and fast cars, Julie is also an advocate for wild mustangs. She has shown her support by appearing on the December 2011 cover of True Cowboy magazine, a publication dedicated to promoting the protection of wild horses in the United States. As a lover of all animals and owner of multiple Sphynx cats, Julie often spends her free time volunteering at her local veterinarian’s office.
