Kennedy Summers is the whole package! The 27-year-old Playboy model—named the magazine's 2014 Playmate of the Year on Thursday, May 16—is smart and generous in addition to being beautiful.
Born in Berlin, Germany, but raised stateside in Virginia, the international blonde bombshell holds a bachelor's degree in anthropology and a master's degree in health administration, according to a press release. She's also working on her M.D. and has plans to become a plastic surgeon—not to mention the fact that she speaks three languages (English, French, and German).
"As 2014's Playmate of the Year, my mission is to help Playboy thrive, as it always has, to break boundaries and carry us into the future," Summers said at a cocktail luncheon in her honor at the Playboy Mansion on May 16. "I couldn't be more excited!"
The young model—who first appeared in Playboy as the December 2013 Playmate of the Month — turned heads at the event in a floor-length white gown by Zhang JingJing Couture. She accessorized with a diamond bunny pendant by designer Pascal Mouawad.
Per the press release, along with the Playmate of the Year title, Summers received $100,000, an Oris Artelier Date Diamonds watch, and a one-year lease on a MINI John Cooper Works Roadster. A T-shirt featuring outtakes from her June 2014 pictorial has also been created, and will be sold to benefit Wounded Wear, a charity close to Summers' heart. The organization provides free clothing to wounded warriors.
Summers is Playboy's 55th Playmate of the Year. Her cover hits stands on Friday, May 23.
