Heat Rises

Editorial

Teela LaRoux heats up the summer even more in her pictorial as Playboy Miss July 2019. On the set of a rooftop in downtown LA with the photographer Ana Dias, Teela tells about her work, experiences, beliefs, and much more. “I’m a hardworking, goofy, adventurous firecracker — a little free spirit creating the life I’ve always envisioned,” she says. A Seattle native, Teela now lives in Los Angeles but has also spent some time abroad. “After I started modeling I moved to Paris and fell in love with the city,” she tells. “I stayed there for years. It was a beautiful way to learn and grow into adulthood.” When it comes to talk about the shooting, Teela reveals: “My experience on set was the best in all my 16 years of modeling.” For Teela, posing nude is a form of self-love. “[It] can be a vulnerable experience, but at the same time it can be empowering,” she says. “I felt strong. I felt beautiful. I didn’t realize I could feel so much love for myself in doing [a nude shoot.]”
