PLAYMATES

ALEXANDRA TYLER IN INGENUE

Playmate Alexandra Tyler is an ingénue in this set from photographer Michael Bernard. A former cheerleader, Alexandra is a self-described good girl, but for this set, she was only too happy to play the bad girl. In nothing but a ripped T-shirt, our Miss April could be the lead in a rock band—now all she needs is a partner in crime. “In a guy, I look for someone tall,” she says. “I don’t like cocky guys, but I love confidence, and I love when a guy can make me laugh.” Alex’s sense of humor is a little unorthodox, so if you want to put a smile on her face, you’d better think fast. “I also love guys with big, strong arms,” she giggles. “Big, strong arms…carrying me a cup of coffee!” Fall for the gorgeous Alexandra Tyler, right here on Playboy Plus.

PLAYMATE OF THE MONTH FEBRUARY 2011 - KYLIE JOHNSON

Valentine's Day bouquet of smarts, looks and love, Kylie Johnson feeds her soul with an array of passions – from John Steinbeck to the Pittsburgh Steelers to screamo bands. "I was a cheerleader for years, but I was the cheerleader who listened to hard-core metal music," says the straight-A nursing student. ("If I get a C, stay out of my way!") Though born in California (the goddess-like marvel of an African American father and a mother of German descent), Kylie grew up in upstate New York, where today she lives to snowboard at the region's famous Kissing Bridge ski resort. "How cute is that – the Kissing Bridge? Totally Valentine's Day, right?" So how does Miss February – who believes that being sexy means "being approachable and kind" – rock romance? "I'm very rock-and-roll, but I'm also very romantic. I'm always spreading the love – always! All I want to do is cuddle all day and convince you not to go to work the next morning. Let's romance each other.

PLAYMATE OF THE MONTH SEPTEMBER 2003 - LUCI VICTORIA

Luci Victoria is quite a tall order. At 5’10”, with blonde hair and blue eyes, English-born Luci attracts more than her fair share of attention. “I was born in Sheffield, England,” she says. “My mom’s family is American, so my accent is a bit of a mixture.” Raised on a steady diet of swimming, gymnastics and horseback riding, Luci decided to become a model, and at seventeen, she moved to Japan to work the catwalk. “When I was younger, I used to get picked on,” she says. “I was so skinny that the other kids used to call me Barbie. When I was sixteen, I landed a role in a Barbie commercial – they didn’t really bother me after that!” At twenty-one years old, Luci became the second-ever British woman to land an American Centerfold. “My dream is to make it to the very top,” she says. “Right now, my modeling career is the most important thing, but someday, I’ll find my Mr. Right and have babies!” With a face and body like hers, our Miss September 2003 can’t go wrong.

PLAYMATE OF THE MONTH JANUARY 1983 - KIMBERLY MCARTHUR

Kimberly McArthur answered the phone in her hotel room at a ridiculously early hour. Before we could ask if she had time for an interview, she was off and running. "Hey," she said, "have you read Woody Allen's Side Effects? You have? Well, do you remember this part?" She proceeded to read, in a delightful Southern drawl, a section about UFOs, Government investigations and the notion of traveling 186,282 miles per second. "It says here your hat would blow off. Which reminds me. You know there is a skill to putting on a cowboy hat. The main trick is to pull it over your ears without getting your thumbs stuck. Such was our introduction to Miss January. She had just flown into Chicago from her current home in Dallas. She was playful, teasing. She suggested that we conduct an interview while walking along the shore of Lake Michigan. "I love long walks along the beach. Or, for that matter, short walks around the bathtub. What would you like to know about me? I tried out for the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders. I didn't make it. Why? I didn't kick high enough. The girls who made it had kicks that looked like exclamation points. An average day? Well, I wake up in the morning, turn on the TV and exercise along with Richard Simmons, the weight saint. I practice my kick. I play with my cat. We do cart wheels on the carpet. I go to work at a video-game company. I go home. I cook. I fall asleep listening to Barbra Streisand records through the headphones. I listen through only one ear - I try to sing along and match the modulation. One of these days, I'd like to sing like that." The interview moved into serious topics, Kim's childhood (she had to drop out of high school in her home town of Fort Worth to help earn money for her family) and her career: She wants to be an entertainer. "It's something I've been doing all my life. If someone I know is really down, I'll launch into a brogue, do a whole skit. You should see me do a five-minute version of The Wizard of Oz. I play all the parts." She then proceeded to demonstrate. Several passers-by stopped to appreciate the impromptu performance. "They're probably wondering how long I've been out," Kim laughed. The word for her behavior is irrepressible. "What would your readers like to know about me? This could get very complicated, you know. How does this sound? 'Kim likes the simple things in life: mink underwear. Large sapphires.' " It turns out that she does like the simple things in life. "I like the signals given at dinner. The knowing laugh. Where, just for a moment, you and the person you love step outside the crowd and share something private. I like Fort Worth. There's a place called the Lone Star Chili Parlor, out by the reservoir. You walk out back and it's like being transported to Paris or Venice. I like having dinner with friends, having the evening end with hugs, knowing you've shared something special." We end the walk knowing that we have shared something very special - a few minutes in the life of a very likable lady. A Southern Star.
