You’ll melt for the exotic Bryiana Noelle, our Miss September 2013. She’s petite – a diminutive five feet, three inches – with brown hair, brown eyes and an alluring smile. “I’m Filipino, Chinese, Spanish, Cherokee and Blackfoot,” she says, and duly, our heads spin like a globe. “I was raised in northern California, and this last year, I moved to Los Angeles.” Bryiana spent her teens in beauty pageants, but at twenty-one, she wanted more – and she got it when a friend of Josh Ryan, our Playmate photographer, met her at a restaurant. “He wanted me to test for Playmate,” she says. “I was a fan of Josh, so of course, I said yes.” Now that she’s a Playmate, our eighth wonder is eager to see the world – and rule it, while she’s at it. “Whatever Playboy has in store for me, I’m ready,” she says, “but my goal is to be Playmate of the Year in 2014.” As Miss California or Miss September, one thing is for sure – Bryiana is a rare and multicultural beauty, and we’re all the better for this sumptuous Centerfold.
