David Bellemere, Playboy

CRAZY COOL GROOVY CONGRATULATIONS goes out to OAHU, HI-native PLAYBOY: Miss MAY 2016 BROOK POWER for ascending to royalty by being named the PLAYBOY 2017 PLAYMATE Of The YEAR!!!

BROOK POWER being named PLAYMATE Of The YEAR 2017 is significant for a couple of reason.

She is a brand-spankin' new mommy. In November 2016, Brook gave birth to a beautiful baby boy, OZZIE.

She is the second-consecutive WOMAN Of COLOR to be named PLAYMATE Of The YEAR behind EUGENA WASHINGTON: PLAYMATE Of The YEAR 2016.

POP CRUSH reports BROOK POWER is the FIRST NATIVE AMERICAN PLAYBOY PLAYMATE Of The YEAR.


Here are some interview interludes:

First of all, congratulations on being Playmate of the Year! How does it feel?
I love it! Honestly, I never thought I’d end up in playboy. I thought it was so out of my element. I’m just a surfer chick who rides horses. 
It’s kind of interesting that you and I have now both posed twice for playboy—once nude and once non-nude. Do you think there’s much of a difference between your two pictorials?
I actually didn’t feel as though the two were very different—well, that’s not true. David Bellemere, the photographer for my Playmate of the Year shoot, is French, so he thinks being naked all the time is not a big deal. But other than that, it’s the same style of photography. It’s modern. It’s current. 
The popular aesthetic has evolved, and so has the climate of the modeling industry. People are interested in people. There used to be more of a divide, but the internet has merged those lines. We’re more connected now.
Nowadays, a model is more of a personality, for sure. There are so many ways for us to express ourselves and put ourselves out there. It’s more about relatability. We’re curating our own careers, basically. I think women who are in any sort of spotlight now need to be interesting. Women are so multifaceted. Especially with models—there’s more than just a pretty face. Now we need to show it.
Do you think growing up in Hawaii influenced who you are now?
Growing up in Hawaii was the best. I had a lot of siblings and friends around. We played on the beach and in the surf and in caves all day. We would become completely consumed by our imaginative world. I think it kept me silly and mellow. People really value family there. Also, the Hawaiian sense of humor is very self-deprecating and humble, which I think are good traits to have in our business. 
Finally, what makes you feel beautiful?
I probably feel the most beautiful when I’m surfing at home in Hawaii. That sounds so cheesy, but having that life force surrounding you and the water on your skin, moving under your feet, you definitely feel powerful, as though you’ve harnessed this great natural energy. You’re not just a spectator—you’re making it even more beautiful by being there.
