The sunshine is slowly entering her blue and pink room and Sophie Natalchuk, aka April 2022 Playmate and cover girl for Playboy Netherlands, is waking up to a lazy (and unbelievably sensual) day. This 23-year-old model comes from Zhytomyr, Ukraine and makes her intimate debut for Playboy in this feature from the photographer Ana Dias.
A longtime lover of Playboy, Sophie is thrilled to finally call herself a part of the magazine’s rich history with her new and well deserved title. “I’ve loved Playboy since I was a teenager,” begins Sophie. “Playboy is much more than just a brand, it is a symbol of freedom and art”. Now that she’s here, Sophie has been loving every second. “I’m just so proud to be a Playboy Playmate!”
Even though she comes off a bit shy at first sight, Sophie is super bold and a very determined person. “I come from a very religious family, so the most adventurous thing I’ve done in my life so far was to decide to become a professional nude model,” she shares. “My father is a priest. I went to church with my sister every Sunday since I was 6 years old.” When asked why she became a nude model, Sophie shares: “I enjoy the process of posing nude, because it makes me feel free. I like to use my body and my energy to inspire and to be a muse for photographers.”
When she’s not modeling, you can find Sophie playing the piano, acting, dancing, travelling or binge watching David Lynch’s cult show ‘Twin peaks’. “I have a crush on Special Agent Dale Cooper,” she says laughing. “I share his love for cherry pie and coffee and I am crazy about his unique sense of humor.”
So stick around and take your time discovering the hidden layers of Sophie’s delicate beauty.
