Meet Qiana Chase, Playboy’s Miss July 2005. Born and raised in South Central Los Angeles, Qiana started modeling in her early 20s. She appeared in Playboy Special Editions and did two newsstand issues before she tried out for the 50th Anniversary Playmate Hunt.
“Posing nude comes naturally to me,” she said. “My mother had to beg me to wear clothes.” These days Qiana is a model, actress, and makeup artist in Los Angeles. She performed in the 50 Cent video “P.I.M.P.,” had small roles in Epic Movie and Funny People, and was featured in the 2005 Lingerie Bowl.
Qiana told Playboy, “I value my independence. I want a man who knows who he is and what he wants in life.” She’s turned on by people who are sure of themselves but not to the point of being cocky. Her niggest turnoff is arrogance.
When Qiana isn’t working, she likes to take it easy—hanging at the beach, or heading to the club with friends. “Being a Playmate is a great opportunity,” she said. “I love life, and I want to live mine to the fullest.”
