Born in England, Viv grew up in a household where she was exposed to European art and culture. She attended both the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and the Royal College of Art before taking up modeling. She won first prize at the British Fashion Awards in 1969 for her work with Penthouse. She was also featured on a cover of the Penthouse Special Editions in 1970 and was voted “Most Humble” at the British Fashion Awards for the same year.

Viv Thomas has continued to expand her international portfolio over the years, and has traveled extensively throughout Europe and the United States. She was photographed for the famous “Playboy” edition of Penthouse and even visited Japan for her first ever solo fashion show there.
In addition to her modeling work, VIV THOMAS has written three best sellers of her own. Her book, “Playboy’s Guide to Beautiful Women” sold over one million copies, which is not only a stunning achievement but is the largest selling book of all time by a woman.
