Meet the sexy, brainy new Playmate of the Year

Playboy just announced their 2014 Playmate of the Year - and she's a smart cookie.

Model Kennedy Summers, who was Playboy's Miss December, was revealed to have received the honour in a YouTube video, and also at a special ceremony at the Playboy Mansion on Thursday. 

Kennedy Summers is the new Playboy Playmate of the Year

The 27-year-old is featured on the cover of Playboy's June edition - due out May 23 - as well as in a 12-page spread that gives a nod to each decade of Playboy's 60-year existence. 

Playboy founder Hugh Hefner himself posted pictures from the event on Twitter. 


According to Hollywood Life, Summers was born in Berlin and raised in Virginia, which explains why she also speaks German and French. She has a degree in anthropology, a master's degree in health administration, and is looking to complete her medical degree so she can be a plastic surgeon. 

As part of her Playmate of the Year privileges, she received US$100,000 (S$125,000) in prize money, an Oris Artelier Date Diamonds Watch with 72 diamonds and a one year lease on a MINI John Cooper Works Roadster.
