It’s undeniable Ines Rau has made history by becoming Playboy’s November 2017 Playmate, but that tidbit is just one of many fascinating aspects of the global model. With depth beyond her beautiful surface, Rau’s story is as inspiring as they come. So are her words.

You can’t lie.” Here, she serves up some holiday-inspired truth in the outtakes from her magazine pictorial.
