A day without dance for our determined and energetic local lass Miss December, Michelle Chrystal, is a day incomplete. Her passion is for both ballet and contemporary dance and you can find her in a studio in Sandton (she’s a qualified teacher, and a Pilates instructor as well) burning off some energy, and burning up the house, when she’s not busy studying for her Chartered Accountant degree.

Though this all sounds quite serious, Michelle knows how to let loose and tells us she enjoys the club scene as well as a cocktail-inspired Sunday lunch with just the girls.

Speaking of the girls and the freedom to have some fun, Michelle’s funniest modeling story to date, she reveals, is when the top seam of her corset tore in a recent photoshoot. “Just as the photographer snapped the picture – my boobs popped completely out. As that happened, we both just started laughing and singing, “I want to break free…!” For her pictorial with us, no such slip-ups had the chance to arise. Because we’re PLAYBOY, after all.

With a great sense of humor, and the lithe, lovely body of a dancer, Michelle will have you on the tips of your toes begging for more.


What are your professional ambitions? I hope to qualify as a Chartered Accountant and eventually become a CEO for a corporate company. I also want to travel to New York and London for modelling, dancing and acting opportunities.

 Turn-ons: Tall with a good physique, a genuine smile, and someone who is intelligent.

Turn-offs:Arrogance and lack of ambition.

My dream date: I’m “old school” when it comes to dating – so I appreciate a man who still believes in chivalry. My dream date would be to go for a late afternoon lunch at a Greek/Italian restaurant, followed by a hot air balloon ride in the evening,finishing off with an overdose of chocolate ice-cream! Overall I just want the date to be fun & enjoyable for the both of us.

What do you look for in a man? I look for a man who has a positive and happy approach towards life. He needs to be career driven and ambitious – and strive for independence. I appreciate a man who takes care of himself, as well as the lady he is with.

People I’d like to meet: Eminem and Lana Del Rey.

Three things I can’t live without: Chocolate, showering and my glasses!

My guilty pleasure: Eating a full tub of chocolate mousse from Woolworths.

Get me a plane ticket to: London!

Sexy is: Not what you wear, but how you take it off.

What do you do for fun? I call up my girls for a chilled Sunday lunch – and make sure every cocktail on the menu is tried at least once!
