Playmate Stephanie Branton is a vital natural resource. She may be a bottle blonde, but her hazel eyes, full lips and ample breasts are all hers, and as our latest Miss September, we’re pleased to call Miss Branton ours. “I grew up in Conception Bay, Newfoundland,â€ says Stephanie. “It’s a small Eastern Canadian town, on an island in the Atlantic. The people are friendly, the land is beautiful, but there aren’t many opportunities for models!â€ Stephanie packed her bags and made tracks for Los Angeles, California, where she scored a Playmate test at Studio West – and the rest, as they say, is history. “I’ve wanted to be a Playmate all my life,â€ gushes Stephanie. “Actually, it was my dad who inspired me. He had a subscription to Playboy, and I know that he admired Hugh Hefner. When I saw my first issue, I knew that I wanted to be a part of it – and it’s finally happening!â€ These days, Stephanie lives and loves in LA, and she wouldn’t have it any other way. “I love to go out with my girlfriends in Hollywood,â€ she says. “There’s so much to see and do. And of course, I love to spend Sundays at the Mansion!â€ A self-proclaimed Newfie, Steph comes from a long line of Canadian Playmates, and she’s excited to represent Canada as a Playboy Bunny stateside. “You know, Shannon Tweed is from Newfoundland,â€ she says. “Once the magazine comes out, people are gonna go crazy. My mom says I’m already a celebrity back home. I want to make everyone proud!â€ In the words of Jane Austen, a person may be proud without being vain, and our Miss September is as cool, calm and humble as they come. We wouldn't have her any other way.
