Iryna Ivanova didn’t have to travel far to become a Playmate. “I had always wanted to be a Playboy model,” she says. “I had some pictures taken and I sent them to Playboy Studio West.” We took one look at her, poured into her clothes and spilling out the top, and knew we had to have her. “Just like that, I was Miss August,” she says. “Being a Playmate has changed my life – I had never modeled before, but now I get to travel, meet new people, hang out with Hef and party at the Mansion.” Iryna is balancing her studies and her Playmate duties – her dreams are to earn a DBA and model for the Ukrainian edition of Playboy, and we have a feeling they’ll come true.
