#21 - Crista Nicole

Crista Nicole was Miss May 2001. The class of 2001 followed a millennium opener complete with a bevy of some of the greatest women in Playboy history... girls you'll surely see later in this list. 2001 included lovely faces like Lauren Hill, Jennifer Walcott, Dalene Kurtis, Lindsey Vuolo, and Shanna Moakler. Crista needed lots of muscle to edge out some of these wonderful women, but she does it with grace and expertise.

Crista is unique because her body's proportions are outstanding for the kind of height she has. A 5'9" leggy sight to see, Crista is still 34C-25-35 and still full of bodily goodness. That unusual combination is what sets Crista apart from what you've seen in other Playmates. She's simply got amazing proportions for such a model-like "runway girl" type. This lets Crista use her body in interesting ways for interesting positions in the photos taken of her. She does things that other girls simply can't and that's what made her one of the great Playmates in history.

Crista has some unbelievable looks in some pictures. Start off by looking at one of her best, an a true modern Playboy classic, Pic 08. The photo is like being in a dream, with Crista's slim proportions and fantasy face all in one picture. Crista is simply too good to be true sometimes, with near perfection in her body and eyes. Crista really knows how to strike some unusual and innovative poses, with this sexy outdoors pose doing the trick. But it's this faceless behind-the-back photo that is another one of Crista's classic staples. It just speaks to the absolutely stacked body that Crista has, combined with that awesome height. Her body ripples with fitness and conditioning, too. Shadows and curves work beautifully with her body, as is shown in this dreamy pic. A true asset that Crista has is her whimsical, classy look that she pulls out every now and then. She flows and ebbs in a wonderful way throughout her pictorial, throwing sexuality and a mix of starlet-like presence into a concoction of success as a Playmate. The wholesomeness is felt clearly in Pic 41 (a bubble-butt to be reckoned with), while the artistic goddess-like glow is palpable in Pic 43. She gives you that look, and you know she's one of the more memorable ones.

Crista was one of the quintessential hard-bodied, tall goddesses of the Playmate world. She was stacked to the max, physically outstanding, not to mention her centerfold was flowing and elegant, and one of the greatest ever. Crista's impact on the Playboy world might not seem immediate, but she was one of the standouts in a renaissance period that began in the late 90's and continued into the start of the new millennium. It's strange, though, that it's Crista's classic, bombastic look that makes her so amazing in an era of "new ideas" and "natural thinking." But it's her over-the-top appeal that makes her #21 and one of the great Playmates in history.

Jayde Nicole is also 34c-24-25. Crista has a huge fan following, and for damn good reason. I heard she was only in it for the centerfold (like aliya wolf and seria tawain) and wont work for playboy again, unfortunately. She would have been way better PMOY than Dalene in my eyes. Most people say Dalene got it because she slept with Hef and because she was the first playmate in history to be completely shaved. Also she was miss september 2001, so maybe playboy felt that it had to be "patriotic" and make her pmoy. Her pmoy video was very patriotic, if I recall correctly, and even in her pmoy pictorial she is laying on an american flag. So thats why I think Dalene had alot in her favor, which was kind of unfair to the other GORGEOUS women of 2OO1. I love 2001 to death, it is one of my favorite years. The 2OOOs started out fresh and steaming leading up to what we have now like Dasha and Jessica and Hope, which start another era...

Beautiful face and impossibly hard body. Amazing presence and works very well with the camera. Her implants actually works with her physique very well. A stunning Playmate who should have been the PMOY in any other year.

Crista has an insanely hard body. Almost as hard, if not even harder than Karen McDougal's who I consider to be the hardest body of them all. Crista has that beautiful yet vulnerable look that few Playmates have. It's a pity that she did not pose more frequently for Playboy and remains in the underrated category.

You should check out her Playmate Profile. It has one of the hottest moment in a Playboy production. It is not an explicit scene but it actually implies a lot:

We see Crista sitting up in bed nude with her legs parted. Then we see her left hand slowly slides down her body and disappears between her legs. Immediately, we see Crista closes her eyes and arches her back to lean back on the pillows...

Wow! How hot is that?

One of my favorite Playmates. Really hot but fell into the cookie cutter category...

Crista I will agree is a stand out. I have heard her referred to as one of the most physically beautiful Playmates seen in a long time. I think one weakness of hers is that she isn't quite as charming as some other Playmates but while we are looking at pictures only that won't count. I don't like her centerfold though. Crista's centerfold just had to be about her backside. Her ass may just be the best since Karen McDougal's. Its something we go back to see again and again and again not quite able to believe how spectacular it is. BTW while mentioning the great Playmates of 2001 you don't mention Irina Voronina which disappoints me. As for the PMOY from that year I would have picked at least five and perhaps more above Dalene Kurtis.
