The latest PLAYBOY curve star impresses with her self-confidence
Hayley Hasselhoff has made her own name for herself – quite independently of her famous father. But it wasn’t always easy. Her family and her name opened some doors for the blonde beauty. However, the expectations on her were extremely high. With such a famous father, she had big shoes to fill.
Hayley is now a successful model and actress. At the age of seven, she already stood in front of the camera for the first time. Together with her dad, she filmed two episodes of Baywatch. Since then, she has played regularly in various series and films. At the age of 14 she started modeling – at that time already as a plus size model.
Plus, Hayley is the first ever curve model to appear on a European cover of PLAYBOY magazine! Wow. Learn more about her mission and what she has to say in our latest magazine.
“I am overcome with emotion around what this cover signifies for inclusivity and its greater purpose towards female empowerment.”
“The plus size industry gives us a voice,” she says, “Through it we can promote self-love and acceptance.” Being in the plus size industry at just 14 taught her to think beyond the common beauty ideals of our society. Because beauty comes in different shapes and sizes.
“I love my body and I stand by myself and my figure,” says Hayley. And you can see that in her face! She feels visibly comfortable with her curves, lols in front of the camera and shows herself looking and feeling sexy. But that was not always the case, she first had to learn to love her body. As a child she was bullied, called fat or laughed at because she had breasts at an early age. The pressure was even greater because she was in the spotlight early on because of her family. But the blonde bombshell has left all of that behind her. Her body, which at that time only provided for spiteful comments, is now the reason for her success.
She not only models and acts but has also designed plus size collections – among others for Elvi and navabi. We think that with her unbeatable self-confidence, she is a great role model! She shows us that you should not hide your curves but use them to your own advantage.
