Newfoundland's Stephanie Branton says her dream of being on the cover of Playboy magazine has come true.
The Conception Bay South woman, 24, will be on the cover of the September issue, and will also be featured in a 10-page pictorial inside.
Branton, who now lives in Los Angeles, says landing the cover shot puts her in rarified company.
"Such an iconic magazine like Playboy. They're in their 60th anniversary this year, so just to be part of that brand and, you know, be on the cover where so many other models have been on the cover previously. I feel I'm in, you know, a special group now," she said.
Branton was featured in an online version of the magazine in 2012
She becomes the third woman from Newfoundland and Labrador to be a Playboy cover girl. The others are Shannon Tweed and Danielle House.
