:: Spotlight :: Model Profile - Soolin DeMaria

By: Carmine Pascuzzi

Knowing that Playboy South Africa would continue to publish classy,beautiful nude pictorials, it was no surprise to hear that Las Vegas beauty Soolin DeMaria was selected as that magazine's Miss February 2016. Soolin grew up in Northern California and began ballet, tap and jazz dance classes at age 7. At 18 she began travelling the world as a professional dancer aboard luxury cruise ships. In 2009 she moved to Las Vegas where she became a featured dancer in numerous production shows on the Strip. She appeared in four casino productions - at Stratosphere, Las Vegas Hilton, the Flamingo, and Sahara — before landing a role in “Fantasy” at Luxor, one of the highest-acclaimed adult shows in Vegas.

Soolin was destined to be a Playboy Playmate and it's a great pleasure to feature her in our Mediasearch website. From the glorious pictures it is easy to see why she mesmerizes audiences. Her South African achievement will no doubt set her on the path to bigger things.
