It seems as if blond bombshell Kristen Nicole was destined to be Playmate of the Month for April 2013. Kristen was born in Escondido, California, and was raised in nearby Temecula. She worked hard and earned her credentials as a swimsuit model and posed for several fashion brands. Nicole has modeled for Guitar World, Paul Mitchell Hair Products, and Have Faith Swimgerie. Before her Playmate days, Nicole even made her way to the top 25 for the Guess! supermodel competition and also reached the top 25 for the Beach Bunny Bikinis supermodel.
Playboy got word of the blond beauty after photographer Josh Ryan shot photos of Nicole for her portfolio. He thought she could be the magazine’s next Playmate. Kristen caught Playboy’s attention and was soon asked to do a test shoot. She found out she was Miss May 2013 during her initial shoot—maybe one of the quickest pictorial picks ever. A quick ride to the top, but this Playmate isn’t complaining.
Kristen has traveled the globe as a Playmate and has been to Germany, Bali, and Hong Kong. Traveling has always been a favorite for Miss May 2013, and she has no plans to slow down. “I absolutely love to travel and see the world,” she told Playboy. “Spain, Rome, Venice, St. Tropez—I can never get enough.”
Her hometown, close to the Mexico border, has influenced Nicole’s taste and lifestyle. So it seemed fitting for photographer Josh Ryan to shoot her centerfold in a beach side villa in Punta Mita. “Mexico is my favorite getaway of all,” she said. “And it’s right in my own backyard. From my airport to a Mexican beach is four hours.”
Nicole is studying to become an interior designer and has dreams of opening her own design business, working in high-end homes and hotels in Los Angeles. When she isn’t strutting around as a Playmate or a model, she loves being with her puppy and going to the beach.
