Eugena Washington has been named as the 2016 Playmate of the Year by ‘Playboy’ magazine, and we think she’s the perfect choice! Here are five things to learn about the gorgeous, talented model.
Eugena Washington, 31, is the beautiful new Playmate of the Year! She’s totally stunning on the cover of the June issue of the magazine, which was revealed on May 11. Read on to hear everything you need to know about the supermodel!
1. She was on America’s Next Top Model.
We knew we’d seen this face before! Eugena was the second runner-up during Cycle 7 of ANTM in 2006, and her modeling career took off from there. After finishing in the top three, Eugena landed a bunch of magazine spreads, commercials and campaigns for brands like CoverGirl, Avon and Clinique. That’s how a star is born!
2. Eugena is in the music video for B.o.B’s single “Nothin’ on You”.
She’s not just a model — Eugena is a bona fide video star, too! Besides “Nothin’ on You”, Eugena also appears in music videos for “This is the Girl” by Craig David and Kano, “Take You There” by Donnie Klang, and “Bleeding Love” by Leona Lewis. Take a look!
3. She’s modeled for tons of brands and has walked the runway at multiple Fashion Weeks.
Besides doing print work for Smashbox, Brooklyn Industries and more, Eugena has become quite familiar with Fashion Week. She’s walked in shows at Los Angeles and New York Fashion Week for a variety of labels!

4. Eugena has actually appeared in Playboy before.
She first appeared in the mag as the Dec. 2015 Playmate of the Month, which is apparently a gateway to the top title! It’s so exciting that she has graduated to become the 57th Playmate of the Year, and Eugena is the third African-American model to be granted the honor.
5. She’s got a rising film and television career.
Eugena has had roles on the shows The Bold and the Beautiful and Hungry, and she stars as Gena in the movie The Perfect Match, which just came out in March. She’s one busy woman!
