Plus-sized model Molly Constable is making her debut in the latest issue of Playboy magazine — and she did it without any makeup on. The brunette beauty looks stunning in the photoshoot by photographer Heather Hazzan, which took place in her hometown of upstate New York. And at a size 14, she is definitely not your average Playmate (in a good way).
Named one of Vogue Rising Model Stars in 2017, Molly already has a pretty impressive following. With over 23,000 followers on Instagram alone, fans were obviously loving her history-making appearance in Playboy. “GET IT GURLL,” one follower wrote before another added, “You’re such a babe!”
Molly has also always been open about being plus-sized in the fashion industry and admits standards are slowly changing. “Everyone is starting to celebrate themselves unapologetically,” she told Vogue India. “At size 14, I didn’t think modeling a possibility.” However, that doesn’t mean she hasn’t had awkward experiences. When asked about her oddest casting experience, she told Love magazine, “One time I had to put on a bridal dress that didn’t fit and then sing and dance to a Bruno Mars song.”
It’s no surprise that Playboy is experimenting with its talent. Even before the death of founder Hugh Hefner this past September, his son Cooper Hefner opened up about the decision to change the creative direction of the magazine. “Creating something that resonates with my generation and the generation that comes after mine is how I’ll measure my accomplishments,” he told The Hollywood Reporter. “I think about the Playboy philosophy constantly, but I have my own point of view. It’s what will have to carry me through.” Keep it up, Playboy.
