Exclusive Interview with Playmate Fiona Hollingsworth
HELLO FIONA! SO GLAD YOU’RE HERE, THANKS FOR TAKING THE TIME TO CHAT WITH US! CAN YOU TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOURSELF, WHO IS FIONA HOLLINGSWORTH IN YOUR OWN WORDS?
I would describe myself as a Ambitious Mummy of four who has overcome a lot in life which many who know me well are inspired for my strength. I have a lot ahead of me still to come including my autobiography which is currently being written. I’m very caring, soft, professional yet full of strength and dedication.
SEEING YOUR PROFILE, I AM SURE MOST MOMS WILL WANT TO KNOW HOW YOU MANAGE YOUR KIDS AND WORK TOGETHER?
I actually never sit down which I love to stay motivated, so I am always on the go be it work or doing things with the children. My children will always come before work in any matter, so keeping a balance structure is key. I shoot when the children are at school & keep evenings and weekends to family time.
WHAT SO FASCINATING ABOUT MODELING, ACCORDING TO YOU?
I love how creative you can be with colours, makeup, the editing! You create a piece of art and create a story with the image! I love how it brings a side of me out that makes me feel confident and in control, Being glammed up with makeup and clothes! There is probably no better part to Modelling, I love it all.
HOW WOULD YOU EXPLAIN YOUR LIFE IN ONE WORD?
WHAT WOULD YOU BE DOING RIGHT NOW IF IT WASN’T MODELING?
I left school at the wee age of 14, so I don’t have any qualifications. I fell into the Modelling & entertainment Industry at around the age of 16, so I couldn’t imagine me doing anything else to be honest. I’ve danced, done acting, Tv presenting, Modelling, promotions, Ring card girl and travelled to many countries working. I’ve tried working in retail before but as much as I like to please people and put my best efforts into everything I do, I just didn’t like it after working in such a diverse and exciting industry with every day being different.
HOW DID THE OPPORTUNITY WITH PLAYBOY COME ABOUT?
During Miss Swimsuit UK in March 2020, I was scouted by a Playmate who gave me her details to shoot for playboy! I took her details and added her on Instagram. We then went into our first National Lockdown due to Covid 19. During this time l was published in the Daily Star online. I noticed he was advertising upcoming Shoots with the opportunity to be featured in Playboy! I applied and was accepted. After my shoot in London, I had a phone call offering me the last Play Playmate Portugal title. I was so pleased I couldn’t resist. I was then published in many other magazines and have continued to do so since! My story went International hitting the headlines, it was pretty sereal!
WHAT FIGURES DO YOU LOOK UP TO IN LIFE AND WHY?
I have always looked up to both Victoria Beckham and Cheryl Cole. They have both been my teenage to now inspiration. Both beautiful, classy, stylish and business minded. In the world of today, I don’t really follow many famous people, there are so many inspiring girls out there. People who inspire me a goal setters, business professionals who have style and class. The Dolls for instance! They are so beautiful and inspirational in there businesses.
WHAT DOES BEING A PLAYMATE MEAN TO YOU?
I love the title Playboy Playmate! It has in no shape or form change me as a person or what I do, but it has helped me to believe in myself a little more and give me many more doors to open. After all my years in modelling I am so grateful I have achieved this title!
HOW HAS WORLDWIDE FAME CHANGED YOUR LIFE, OR IS IT JUST THE SAME?
I am definitely much more in demand of publications and interviews but with Covid still lingering around, much of this has had to be done remotely. As a person I’m still a busy mummy who spends lots of time on walks and fun days out with my children, doing the school runs and daily cleaning!
TELL US SOMETHING ABOUT YOUR NEXT STRIDE?
My name is still getting more and more known and I have lots more publications set for 2021 including some of the biggest Men’s magazines out there, more playboy publications including covers!With many events on hold at the moment I’ve just got the magazine publications Booked so far with some events on hold, so I’m just awaiting the word go from Borris & you will see me at many events during 2021.
