Hayley Hasselhoff leads the plus-size glamour as she walks the catwalk during Miami Swim Week


Hayley Hasselhoff ensured she was centre of attention as Paraiso Miami Beach Beach Resort 2023, otherwise known as Miami Swim Week, continued in America’s sunshine state on Sunday.

Opting for a blue and pink bikini from their latest range, Hayley led a troupe of unconventionally sized models – a refreshing contract to those employed to walk the Sports Illustrated catwalk the previous day. 

She later changed into a sweeping sheer summer dress, complete with a daring thigh high slash and plunging neck that fully exposed her ample cleavage. 

The event gave less conventionally shaped models an opportunity to shine, with plus-sized models joined by those with disabilities.

She told MailOnline: ‘My dad is very supportive in the choices I make for my own career. My mum and my dad are always very supportive in everything that I have done. 

‘You have to remember I’ve been in this industry since I was 14 and I’ve been a curve model since I was 14.

‘We all have different journeys in the curve industry but for me I started out as a curve model and I am still a curve model today.

Hayley, who competed on Celebrity X Factor in 2019, recently revealed she felt ’empowered’ by being able to celebrate and showcase her body as she starred topless for Playboy magazine – the first plus-size model to do so. 

‘To see the progression of where I’ve gone, to where I am today, I think they’re both very, very supportive and they believe in me and all the choices I make in my own career, just like I do for them.’

Hayley shot the glamorous pictures in Paris during lockdown wearing her own lingerie after it became difficult for her team to source garments to fit her UK size 16-18 frame amid the pandemic.

The curvaceous actress explained being the first plus-size woman to star on the front of Playboy Germany is significant because it plays into a ‘bigger movement’ of embracing all different body shapes and sizes.

She said: ‘There are a few photos that are tastefully nude where I’m topless.

‘At the beginning there were pieces of me like “oh Playboy…” and then I had a think and I was like ‘oh cool!’ I get to make this movement for curve women during a global pandemic and let them know they have every right to celebrate their bodies.

‘Looking at those images I have to say there were definitely moments on set where I was apprehensive because it was my first time ever shooting something like this.

‘It was one of those moments where you have a thought bubble and that apprehensiveness – but then that positive thought came back in and said “hold on a second that’s the whole reason you’re here today.”
