Hello Playboy World! Kyra Marie has arrived…

Tell us something surprising about you? Something surprising about me is I used to be a competitive figure skater. I started figure skating at the age of 12 and I fell in love with the sport.

Were you excited to shoot for Playboy? I was incredibly excited to have the opportunity to shoot for Playboy. Getting the cover solidifies my modeling career.

What inspires you? What inspired me are my parents. They are always supportive and motivate me to achieve my goals in life.

Why did you choose to pursue a career in modeling? Modeling has always been something I wanted to pursue as a career since I’ve always had the height and the look, everything else came naturally.

Who do you look up to in the modeling industry? In the modeling industry, I look up to Heidi Klum. She is a German Victoria’s Secret Angel who has not only modeled for the biggest names in the industry but she is also is a TV host, TV producer, a mother, and a businesswoman.

What are some of your hobbies? My hobbies are working out, cooking and dancing.

Name three things on your bucket list? The three things on my bucket list are to travel the world, skydive, and to be on the cover of Vogue.

Turn-ons… My biggest turn-ons are a good sense of humor, height (since I’m 6ft tall), and eye contact.

Turn-offs… My biggest turn-offs are arrogance, rudeness and seriousness.

Describe to us your perfect date… My perfect date would be an evening boat ride, with champagne toasts, chef served dinner and dessert.

Which world capital would you most like to visit, and why? The world capital I would most like to visit is Paris. Paris is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. It has the reputation of being a romantic and cultural city.

What is your mantra? My mantra would be to be kind when possible, it’s always possible.
