“A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.” – Coco Chanel
This weeks Babe of the week is Playboy South Africas Miss March,Playmate Kate Lovemore
PIM:Kate. Thank you for gracing PIM. . Firstly tell our readers more about yourself? Kate: HI Everyone. My name is Kate Lovemore (how appropriate is my surname) I am born and bred in Durban and love feeling healthy and fit. I enjoy boarding and am very involved in the surfing world as my Man is a Big Wave surfer 🙂 I have a very positive outlook on life and will try and find the fun in many a situation
The MARCH Edition was special and a landmark in SA. Could you have chosen a better month.You the March 2012 Playmate in playboy South Africa. How was the Playboy experience? The Playboy experience has been a lot of fun so far… The shoot was a blast and the company as a whole is full of awesome people who have made me feel like family. There have been the odd negative comments but they are few and far between.
How would you say PLAYBOY SA has taken on in our shores? It seems to have taken off pretty well. everyone has their opinion of the magazine but in general the response is positive. In durban, friends and fans have gone to buy the March edition and its been sold out so thats a great sign.
Were you nervous to bare all during the shoot. How was the shooting experience and screening process. Im sure its tough hey? I was a little nervous but not much at all. I tend to like to bare all when I get the chance and Playboy has been a dream of mine for a long time. The weather on the day of the shoot was magnificent so to dip in the cold Cape Town ocean was refreshing. The key is to feel comfortable in your own body and everyone will feel comfortable in the shooting process 🙂
Hows Life post Playboy? Would you say that it has jump started your modelling career? It hasnt been too crazy which is great because im a little laid back. I have had to agencies approch me so far so hopefully you will be seeing more of me on the ramp and in Ads
Parties. Cruises and autographs. How would you say fans have embraced you since you have been a Playmate? So far the fans have been great. only a hnadful have had some negative comments but each to their own right?I have had quite a large increase in friend requests on FB ha ha I have also had a few requests of fans wanting their magazines signed that they post to me and I post them back
Where to from being a Playmate of the month, I know the playmate of the year takes place.What then..meeting Hef in the mansion.:)? well Im slowly building up my fan base and have PMOY clear in my sights. To win that next year will be an amazing acheivement and I plan on doing so 🙂 Nothing like feeling confident ha ha
What advise would you give to any model aspiring to become a Playmate? Make sure it is something that you really and truly want. you have to make sure you can take the good comments with the bad. People can get nasty but just take it in your stride. You must be proud of what you have acheived and that will radiate in your confidence. Being a Playboy Playmate is an honour and a privedge so remember to act like a lady and treat your Playmate status with integrity. The Playboy brand is a classy one so no need to run around acting skanky ha ha
What’s a day in the life of Kate Lovemore. How do you pay the Bills, What do you do for a living? I am an interior designer for my family business (Lovemores Cupboard Shoppe) where we design and manufacture kitchen and bedroom cupboards as well as give advice on paint colour, tiles and san-ware to use. I am also a surf videographer where I spend many a day filming guys surfing and the lifestyle that come with it. Both of my offices are out doors and I wouldnt have it any other way xx
What are your Health and beauty secrets?Any tips for our readers? I cant say I have many but a recent beauty tip is quit smoking! I gave up a year ago and the way your skin changes when you give up is amazing! I also run 3 times a week on the beach, bodyboard when I can and hit the gym on most evenings. DRINK LOTS OF WATER and try lay off the sweets (a hard one for me) I am loving using Dermalogica and treat yourself to a facial or a massage once a month hee hee (indulgences)
Can you Cook. What would you make PIM for Dinner? I can cook but im not the best. I like to keep it simple. My favourite dish to cook for Twiggy (my man) and I is Spagetthi otherwise I quite fancy popping down to our local Thai restaurant for a Tom Yung Gung soup and sushi. So if PIM came over i would probably treat you to the latter ha ha
Describe your day if you did not have your Blackberry/I phone/smartphone? it would be glorious ha ha. Generally my phone doesnt stop all day from emails to calls to messages. I would probably be a safer driver to ha ha Nolthing like a blonde behind the wheel trying to answer emails..yikes
What do you prefer on a guy.Boxers or Briefs? Neither 🙂
Why should anyone visit SA. ?What would you say is the best place to visit in SA and Why? we have an amzing diverse culture here and our landscape is amazing! I would have to tell people to visit Durban. The weather is always amazing and the sea is warm. If you are a surfer our surf spots are uncrowded. I would have to tell visitors to drive the garden route to Cape Town. I do this drive every year and I am always amazed by the beauty in our country
Your dream shoot…Pick a location, a theme? on an island with turquoise water and beautiful bikinis or underwear.
Oh and what would you regard as the sexiest part of your body and a guys? On my body it would have to be my bum or shoulder and neck area. On a guys body it would have to be the sexy side muscles that run down the side of a guys stomach to create a V 🙂 yummy!!
