One California's hottest young models started three years ago as a successful and popular calendar girl. But according to Nicole Violet Albright, "It wasn't an easy start. Still my worst memory is my first real calendar shoot. It was so awkward and uncomfortable for me. I had no idea what I was doing." But bad memories have turned into a burgeoning career with Nicole having already appeared on the covers of over a dozen magazines including FHM, Maxim and Stuff. "My most memorable memory would definitely be getting to work with and be in the pages of Playboy," says the 25 year old Newport Beach resident. She will be competing at Ms. Bikini America in Las Vegas and furthering her modeling career. "I hope to bring to the show a whole new look and excitement."
