I would only pose nude if it was for Playboy, says Dublin model Pamela

DUBLIN model Pamela Ryan has revealed her big dreams to pose for Playboy.

Pamela is prepared to strip for the magazine -- but only the American version.

The Drimnagh native told the Herald she has been offered a number of glamour shots in the UK, but won't be revealing all.

However, she would strip off if Playboy magnate Hugh Hefner came calling.

"I have a meeting with Nuts magazine in a couple of weeks and I'm really excited about it, but I told them I'll only pose for them in lingerie, as I don't want to strip off. I would do it for Playboy though because that's different," the 19-year-old said.

"I think the American version is much classier than the European one, it's done in the right way -- it also has history to it and the pin-ups are more glamorous."

Pamela recently admitted she was forced to turn down work with London agency Neon Management, after they asked her to send topless pictures of herself.

However, the blonde beauty would be willing to get in front of Hefner's cameras if she was approached by the mogul.

Pamela is fast becoming one of the most sought after models on the Irish press call circuit and has enjoyed a packed schedule since signing up to the Assets agency.

She is also set to feature in the latest TV advert for dresses.ie and their Christmas collection, which will hit screens later this month.

Pamela, who is open about her refusal to dye her hair darker after it was suggested she would then land more modelling jobs, is the only blonde to be chosen for the shoot.

Strutting alongside brunette beauties Nadia Forde, Louise Kavanagh and Lynn Kelly, the Buck Whaley's hostess "really enjoyed" her debut TV experience.

"It was absolutely fantastic, I loved it. The girls are all so nice and I was honoured to be the only blonde. Blondes need to be brought back ... I know sometimes they can be seen as tacky but they need to be classy."

Pamela's long-term beau Gary Kelly (19) has been very supportive of her ambitions.

Only-child Pamela is the apple of her parents' eye and joked that that her dad is making a scrapbook of all of her clippings.

"My parents are really happy for me and so are cousins, they all support what I do."
