Michelle McLaughlin is a model probably best known for her appearance as Playboy's Miss February 2008. Her measurements are 34C-24-35.
Michelle McLaughlin described herself on Twitter as “Model, Miss February 08 & pro snorkeler. Lover of the beach, dogs, seashells, vino, sushi, baseball, SUPing, orchids, running, cupcakes, yoga & laughing.”
She is a graduate of Carlmont High School in San Mateo County. Michelle McLaughlin grew up in Northern California and worked in a coffee shop. On a whim, she sent her photos to Playboy. Before Playboy, she’d never modeled before and said her casting call was “the most nerve-wracking morning I’ve ever experienced.” It was on her birthday - “the best birthday present I’ve ever gotten” - that she was told she would be a Playmate.

Michelle McLaughlin said she had to overcome people telling her ‘don’t get your hopes up, a lot of people want to do that’ in her goal in becoming a model.
She said she grew up in “a perfect family,” and she loves the outdoors. “My dad always took me hunting, boating, fishing and camping, so I’m the tomboy of the family. On the outside I’m very girlie, but I love to get down and dirty and do things guys like to do.”
She said in 2008 that her turn-ons were “blue eyes, intelligence, optimists, bubble baths, candlelight dinners and cuddling.” Her turn-offs were “selfish and undependable people.”
Her ambitions were to “earn a master’s degree in psychology and to be happily married.”
Michelle McLaughlin said, “I think there’s two ways of judging a girl in Playboy. Either you don’t like the idea at all and think the girl is a sleazeball – or you think, ‘Wow, this girl’s got guts, and she’s gorgeous.” She claimed she never laid eyes on a Playboy magazine until she was 18, and she was “sheltered” (insidebayarea.com). At her first glance in the mag, she said, “I was like, ‘Whoa, I want to be one of these girls! I wanted to be a centerfold. I wanted to be the girl that was in the middle of the magazine.”
Michelle McLaughlin lives half the year in Washington DC, as her husband is a TV announcer for the Washington Nationals baseball team.
