There are a lot of potential highlights in a models career, with a lot of big name publications that most models would love to have the privilege to appear in at one point or another. One publication that has received a lot of attention over the years and is the pinnacle of many a models career, is the Hugh Hefner run Playboy.
Every year, there are models all over the world who dream of becoming a Playboy model, with those lucky few having the privilege of being chosen as the Playboy Playmate of the Year. Last year saw the beautiful Raquel Pomplun named the 2013 Playboy Playmate of the Year and Raquel has opened up about her experiences with Playboy and Hugh Hefner himself.
Pomplun explained, "Every Sunday, girls go over to the Playboy Mansion and get in the pool and Hef is there. He has to see you and say, ‘OK, she’s good for a test shoot.’ He’s 87 years old, but he’s still approving every playmate. He’s still that involved. He’s a gentleman to an incredible level, but he is the man who has seen and done everything, so what can you possibly tell him? It’s better to not even try too hard to impress him."
Raquel Pomplun has had a fantastic relationship with Playboy, being named Playboy Playmate of the Month back in April 2012, before then landing the Playboy Playmate of the Year title last year. To top it all off, Raquel Pomplun is the first Mexican-American model to be named Playboy Playmate of the Year, something she is very proud of.
