You would be hard pressed to find a woman quite like Kimberly. Since becoming Playboy Africa’s “Playmate of the month December 2018,” Kimberly has gained attention and has quickly become one of the world’s sought after models. Kimberly set aside some time for us and let us inside her captivating life.
How did you get into modeling?
Kimberly K: I got into modeling when I was a teenager in Australia but I didn’t enjoy it much then because it was during the thin craze, and I just didn’t want to starve myself to get work. So, I picked it up again as an adult living in America. The USA seems to appreciate nice curves more than Australia ever did.
Were you inspired and/or looked up to other models prior to your modeling career?
Kimberly K: Yes, absolutely! Elle MacPherson has always been my favorite since I was a little girl. She’s just so effortlessly breathtaking.
Are you heavily involved with each photo shoot that you do or are you just involved with certain aspects of it?
Kimberly K: Each photo shoot is a collaboration between the model (s), the photographer and the makeup artist. That’s what I love about it; the amalgamation of different ideas.
You recently graced the cover of Playboy Africa (December 2018). How does it feel to be a part of Playboy, and what was your reaction when you saw yourself on the cover?
Kimberly K: Yes, I loved it! I definitely hope there’s more to come.
Can you share some of your current dreams and goals that you’ve set for yourself, and how do you plan on accomplishing them?
Kimberly K: I really want to travel the world shooting with photographers in different countries and cultures, and I also want to write about my experiences as I go. Traveling, shooting, and writing. What could be better?
What’s the biggest misconception about you?
Kimberly K: That I’m an extrovert! Ha! I think I’ve learned to display extroverted behavior, but truth be told, I really love spending time alone, and I’m quite shy sometimes, too. Solitude helps me to recharge my energy to give to other people again.
In the last few years, what new belief, habit, or behavior has improved your life?
Kimberly K: Pretty recently I had an awakening about my dreams and my life. I don’t want to put them on hold for a “rainy day” or the “right time.” I’ve realized that if I want to do something, I’ve got to put the wheels into motion and just go for it.
What makes you unique and stand out from other models, and how do you plan on achieving long-term success in your modeling career?
Kimberly K: I think what’s unique about me is my freedom. I am very sexual and sensual, and I’m unapologetic about that. I fight for freedom of expression in everything I do.
Right now and for the foreseeable future, what’s most important to you and why?
Kimberly K: Health, happiness, sunshine, dancing, singing, moving my body, sharing my expression and telling my stories.
What can people expect to see from you in the future?
Kimberly K: Envelopes pushed. Horizons expanded. Risks taken. Stay tuned: It’s going to be fabulous!
