FRESNO, California --
Carly Lauren, a model and actress from Madera, California, is Playboy's newest Playmate of the Month in the magazine's October 2013 issue.
The 23-year-old recently graduated from Fresno State with a business degree in accounting, and has appeared on Rules of Engagement and Suburgatory. She was discovered by Playboy on Instagram.
Carly's Circus-themed pictorial was inspired by her talk of cutting loose and doing something different with her life.
"I can be responsible, but I can be a wild and spontaneous creature too," said Carly. "I definitely have a gypsy in my soul, so if I want to run away and join the circus, I will. And I do."
