It’s Friday and after a stressful week isn’t it good to unwind with some simple, stress-free pleasures? And who better than Victoria Secret’s model Kelly Gale appearing on Playboy’s (now nude-free) September issue.
Gale’s debut comes after another Aussie, Rose Byrne, appeared in the famous men’s magazine in May. Playboy changed its direction last February, going for a young audience, with no nudes and stronger editorial.
Gale – who has an Aussie dad and Indian mother – actually grew-up in Sweden and was discovered by a modelling agency at the age of 13 in a Gothenberg cafe.
The 21-year-old has modelled for everybody from Chanel, H&M, Tommy Hilfiger, Ralph Lauren, Jean Paul Gaultier. However, she shot to global stardom when she became an “angel” for Victoria’s Secrets in 2014 (see below). She also appeared in a recent Enrique Iglesias music video.
In her Playboy debut, Gale not only scores the cover but a sizzling 14-page spread in the magazine.
