Cover girl and Playmate Solomia Maievska will surely disarm you in this dreamlike pictorial from photographer Ana Dias for Playboy Netherlands.
Originally from Lutsk, Ukraine, Solomia — or just Mia, like her close friends call her — has been working as a model since 2015. Her outstanding beauty and boldness made her a name stand out in the industry, though she didn’t really have any plans to become a professional model starting out. “I won’t lie – I’ve never considered myself as a model. When I was a kid, I always tried hiding from the camera when my mom wanted to take a shot,” she says giggling.
Her photoshoot with Ana Dias took place in a very serene setting but Mia admits that she was feeling quite exhilarated. “It was my first experience in nudity, but it just flowed very naturally,” she confided. “Ana and her team were friendly, easygoing and very professional. I really loved it, and I felt the freedom I’ve never felt before.”
When she is not in front of the camera, music is where Mia gets her energy from. “I really like singing, playing the guitar, the ukulele. I was born in a family of musicians, and that’s why I’ve spent my whole life surrounded by creativity,” she shares. In her spare time Mia also likes to devour novels, to watch (and rewatch again and again) the 90’s TV show ‘Friends’ and to play with random dogs that come to her on the street. “I am 100 percent a dog person, so every dog I meet I have to pet and say hello.”
If you haven’t fallen already for the witty and breathtakingly gorgeous Mia, make sure to check out her photos.
