Playboy.com Photo Editor James Trevenen took a break from photographing Playmates, Cyber Girls and Casting Call models to judge the First Annual Miss G-String International Pageant near Tampa, Florida. While judging the competition Trevenen says he took performance, attitude and personality into consideration. “Over the course of three nights I watched each of the 17 G-string-sporting contestants strip down in a variety of different performance styles including ’sexy Elvis,’ burlesque, fire twirling and gothic.” Winner Tanya Taylor’s circus-themed performance was energetic and ended in what Trevenen calls “an amazing hot wax shower.”
Daisy Duxe was voted Miss Congeniality by her fellow contestants and Tawnie Monroe received the highest scores given to newcomers. Trevenen selected Tali De’Mar as Miss Photogenic. Her prize? A Playboy photo shoot! “Tali encompassed all that a photographer looks in a model,” says Trevenen. “A unique look, fantastic body and gorgeous smile. When she was in front of the camera, she made it easy to take photos.”
If you didn’t attend the pageant—held, incidentally, at a clothing-optional resort—you can check out the contestants in our exclusive photo gallery.
