Playmate Karina Marie heated up the cold winter months in her January 2013 pictorial as Playmate of the Month. The British babe hails from Basildon, England, and is the definition of an international supermodel. Marie landed her first magazine cover at 17. She’s the real deal. “I have been modeling for 10 years,” she told Playboy. “So I must be doing something right.”
The British model follows in the footsteps of 13 former British Playmates. Karina is represented by several notable agencies around the globe, including FM Agency London, Mega Models Miami, Muse NYC, Karens Israel, Major Milan, and Heffner Model Management Seattle.
She has made more covers than we can count and has shot for publications that include GQ, Glamour, Elle, Arena, Shape, and Men’s Fitness. She has several TV commercials under her belt as well. The January Playmate posed for Sirens Fashion in 2012, and in that campaign it was easy to see why she is such a desired fashion model. The 5'8" stunner even had a guest spot on the British reality show The Salon when she was 16. She stuck to modeling, though, and it obviously worked out.
The 1950s sex symbol Brigitte Bardot is one of Marie’s inspirations. “The woman is all I aspire to be—sexy, hot, and a bombshell,” she told Playboy.
Marie is definitely all three. Her glamorous Instagram account shows her jet-setting around the globe, shooting for countless magazines and fashion brands. She often enjoys exotic places like Mykonos, Paris, and Miami. Her Playboy cover shoot by Sasha Eisenman was a winter ski-trip inspired shoot that felt right at home for Marie, who loves winter activities and lounging in log cabins.
Marie hopes to eventually host a reality TV show and start her own lingerie line. She spends her free time shopping for vintage clothes in Camden market and loves going to music festivals. Her favorites include the UK’s All Tomorrow’s Parties and The Isle of Wright.
