Jessica Vaugn: Most Valuable Playmate
Playboy is not only the authority in showcasing gorgeous women, it's a household name. It's a lifestyle. Hell, It's almost bigger than life. For a company to be the trendsetter in all things sexy through so many decades, they have to be doing a lot of things right. Bestowing upon us the enchanting and provocative Jessica Vaugn every week is definitely one of those things! Jessica is a living example of a multi-talented beauty. She's an established model, make up artist, college graduate and weekly columnist for TheSmokingJacket.com, Playboy's own workplace-safe humor website. Jessica gives us a glimpse in on her life in this week's exclusive interview. Photography by Danny Griffin.
Where are you originally from?
I am from Wichita, KS but now live in Los Angeles, CA.
The great midwest, huh? What was it like growing up in Wichita?
There are very conservative people there and wild ideas are not appreciated or valued. Dreaming big is not for them. I knew as a young person that I was not meant to stay there forever. That being said, I grew up with really genuine and hard working people who love people for who they are and for all the right reasons. I wouldn't have it any other way!
I see that you are a college grad from Friends University. How was your college experience like?
I modeled the whole time I was in college, so I didn't get involved in anything outside of class. Weekly, I barely made it off the flight in time Monday morning for my classes after a weekend of shooting in some other state. I went to a private college which is locally highly esteemed. Now that it's over, I wish that I could go back and experience a traditional state school, living on campus, football games, etc.
That's quite a unique college experience. So, how long have you been in the modeling industry?
4 wonderful years! Well, maybe the most recent 3 of those 4 can be considered wonderful!!
Anyone confident can be attractive regardless of what they're given to work with physically.
You've experienced considerable success in such a short amount of time. What made you choose modeling as your career path?
Victoria Secret models. I was a little girl hypnotized by their beauty! I had no idea what was ahead when I did my first shoots but it all evolved quite nicely. I still idolize the VS girls!!
You have a pretty extensive resume, appearing in publications all over the globe. What are some of the most notable appearances you've made?
Playboy, Playboy Italy, Maxim UK, Maxim Espanol, FHM UK, FHM India & with a buncha other great people!
I'm sure the readers would like to know, are you single?
I am unmarried but I do see someone seriously.
I bet you've just broken a lot of hearts with that revelation! I'm sure many men have fell for you. What are your measurements?
What would you say is your best asset?
I am thankful I have nice natural boobs and eyes people compliment a lot!
What five words best describe you?
Agreed! How would you best describe your personality?
I am a realist busy dreaming…The two don't conflict because dreams can come true, its just up to us!
Tell us just what type of man are you attracted to?
Driven ones! I love dark hair with sideburns too
What trait do you think is most important in determining someone's attractiveness?
The way they carry themselves! Anyone confident can be attractive regardless of what they're given to work with physically.
That is a probably a trait often overlooked by most men. What qualities do you think the man of the future should have?
He should be forward thinking and imaginative. "If you don't own it, it 'aint worth it!" I learned this when I was a teen working for a small business owner.
Well said! What else would you like to accomplish in your modeling career? What other projects are you working on?
I want to do UK men's magazines next year. I also want to create some amazing modeling videos. I'm hoping Michael Bay calls me back about my music video...LOL! I also want to expand who I write columns for, maybe a magazine!
What do you enjoy most about modeling?
Creating something no one can take away from you!
What has been your most exciting accomplishment thus far?
I was thrilled to get picked up by Playboy.
What are some of your favorite cities to visit?
