Victoria Silvstedt

Just shy of six feet tall with crystal blue eyes and flaxen blonde hair, this ambitious glamazon from a quiet town in the north of Sweden has dreams of acting after a few more years of modeling. Victoria has graced the pages of Playboy magazine as Miss December 1996, and has just been named the 1997 Playboy's Playmate of the Year. She has also skied competitively in the giant slalom as a lithe Swedish athlete. In 1993, Victoria was the first runner-up in the Miss Sweden beauty pageant, and went on to represent Sweden in the Miss World contest. There, Victoria met a modeling agent from Paris and has been modeling ever since.
