A former International Playboy Bunny (as in working in an actual Playboy club), Destiny Papalia has been breaking hearts worldwide for awhile now. You may recognize her from the Primitive look book, where she posed alongside the likes of IHG favorite Shay Maria.
She is currently modeling in LA, and I started shooting her recently after discovering her on Instagram. She’s become an instant favorite: gorgeous, photogenic and fully down for the cause. Look for much more from Destiny and I in the future.
